    Unfortunately the .141 radio did not work either. I still get the invalid sim error. It would have been ideal if i could use the .78's radio with the hybrid but that gives me an app error 523

    Will it be of any help if I wipe the device with jl-cmdr?

    well you can try the wipe thing, but im not sure, do the wipe, reload the os with the sim in your phone, but try the straight before the hybrid...

    Tried pretty much everything now and the only version that seems to accept the sim card is the .78 with the .98 radio

    Does anyone know if the simlock resides in the radio rom or not?
    Thanks

    141 Os

    I will try 654321ROD's suggestion of using the .141 radio and let you know how it goes. Btw, just to be sure, do you mean install the radio that came with the .141 OS? I believe the radio version shipped with the .141 os from vodafone was version .174 right? Cause I have tried the official .141 vodafone os downloaded from the bb uk site and that did not work either

    Thanks everyone for your help
    Yes the radio that came with the 141 for me works great. As a matter of interest I remember seeing somewhere that there is a COD file which allows use of sim which sometimes is removed if one loads a non GSM Os.
    Perhaps Lyricidal or Crackman could comment on this.

    First, pull the batterry & the sim card (use an erasure) insert it back in carefully.

    then put the battery back in.


    If still no then:

    go into options/mobile network

    what is selected in network? and what are the other choices that can be chosen in the drop down box?

    It is connected to the right network i.e. Vodafone Malta and the network mode is set 3G&2G. I then have the option to choose 3G only or 2G only. None of the latter 2 work either.

    I just finished trying the .141 radio with the .78 OS and still get the invalid SIM error so the issue is definitely related to the radio rom I use.

    did you use Shrink-A-OS at all
    if so did you select the removal of Sim Card Capablities?
    if not, I would attempt a reinstall of the OS, if you haven't already done so
    other than that, I'm not sure what the issue could be, potentially a 5.0 file? but I haven't heard of this issue from any other 9500 users yet
    let us know if any of the above works or if more help is required

    Sim card capability

    ktaliana I`m sure this problem has somethimg to do with the sim card .COD being removed by either Shrink Os or Storm Shrink. I would install .141 to a wiped phone, and then copy and paste Lyricidal hybrid java files into the java folder of the operating system. Use loader to install and update. Perhaps you may have a corrupt .141 OS , if the sim works for .78 it must work for later Os. Another consideration is that you have inadvertantly used a 9530 Os or hybrid, be wary of this.

    Thanks for your reply. No I did not use Shrink-A-OS and I have reinstalled the OS from scratch quite a few times. To make sure that the problem is related to the radio file I use I also tried installing a fresh copy of the .78 OS and replace just the radio file with the one I got from the .141 official vodafone and still got the invalid sim error. So using everything from .78 (without shrinking or anything) except the radio will still give me the invalid sim error.

    If you get hold of Storm Shrink and run it you should see in the right column (to be kept ) a reference to SIM card capability and if not , move it there from the to be removed column and then shrink again. This will reinstall SIM capability.

    9500 SIM error...

    Since you have already tried a lot of ways... you can try this out too:

    - Perform a full Backup...
    - Wipe the phone... it is very easy....You can use this program: http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/3...nife-beta.html
    - Install the leaked 4.7.0.151 OS
    - Copy Shrink-A-OS
    (unzip the RAR file and put the EXE into your current OS folder (most probably: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9500-v4.7.0.151_P4.0.0.186)

    - Use Shrink-A-OS to shrink your OS also check/tick the SIM capabilities option

    - Go to the APPLOADER folder (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader)
    - Make sure there are no files named Vendor.xml
    - Use the Loader.exe to load the OS to your phone

    - After the OS gets installed succsessfully to your phone... do 3 60 sec battery pulls
    - Restore the backed up data

    Now your phone should work well... without issues...
    Please let me know what happens.

    Thanks for your tips gabriel, however this still gave me the invalid sim error. Just to be sure I followed the right procedure, should I wait for the phone to boot before I do the first battery pull and in between the remaining two battery pulls? Or does it not make any difference?

    Let it boot up completely to homescreen before pulling battery again

    Thanks olta777, that's exactly what I did so I still have the same problem I am now going to try using the .141 OS with some other older radios. The only problem is that Storm Shrink is not downloading the OMADRM version of the radio even though I have 9500 selected. It always downloads rim0x04001404.sfi instead of rim0x06001404OMADRM.sfi. Renaming the radio file does not work. The loader will not recognise the file and will not offer it as an upgrade/downgrade.

    Yeah, I think it works for 9530 only...I may be wrong though...but you can manually copy the sfi file of the desired radio, it would just add the hassle of installing the OS, copying radio, then uninstalling it....
