    I exited from CAL mode by pressing the send (green) and end (red) buttons at the same time while doing a battery pull out. DM will then recognise the phone and I just re-installed a working ROM.

    I finally had a decent conversation with a representative of Vodafone Malta and the lady on the phone basically told me that it is impossible to install newer firmware unless it is supported by the operator! Unless I use the .78 software, when my BB connects to the BIS at Vodafone it will notice that the OS is not supported and gives me the invalid SIM. That is the explanation I got, how accurate it is ... I don't know

    I am not buying that story at all. I am sure she read that off of a note card. Of course Voda will not oficially support leaked OS's but the fact they can determine you are using one when you connect to BIS, I highly doubt.

    My brother lives in London and is using a BB on Voda with a leaked OS and has never had any issues.

    I see what you mean but she didnt say they will recognise a leaked OS, they will just recognise that my software version is not supported.

    I cant say I bought the story either though

    Of course, they will never recognize leaked software as supported nor would I expect them too. Makes 100% sense.

    Hi there, im new to the blackberryos.com..... (never found the time, but I did at 4am to register)

    anyway, I just got a storm, 9500 and this is my second berry... was enjoying it, but I was eager to upgrade it asap due to many reasons....

    I'm also from malta, like ktaliana is.... and i have the same issue

    i downloaded the .167 and invalid sim... so basically i tried finding a fix, and after reading this... i decided to download .78 and install it again, which im doing right now

    IF there is a fix for the radio on the storm, I would really much appreciate it, since I hate the stock os... its sucks totally
