    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

    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.
