Since wy wife stuck her sim in my phone I have been unable to make or receive calls
Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place, but I have a problem that I require help with and my friend suggested your web site. Oh and after reading the title of my question it now appears as though I am stuck in an early carry on movie :)
The problem is that I have a Blackberry Bold 9700 (and before anyone says that doesn't sound like a problem, I've heard that one already :) that has developed a mind of its own & I cannot correct it.
My blackberry only has an 02 pay as you go sim in it, with data tagged onto the pay as you go basics, but it has worked fine for ages now and I like it that way - never had to connect it to my computer (although now I have tried to update OS and Desktop Software to no avail).
All went wrong when my partner, who also has a blackberry bold 9700, was to be without her phone for a few days and chose to steal mine and stick her sim in my phone!!! (this was not a good idea, as she has a work blackberry with IT settings etc... - but who can stop a woman when they have made up their mind!) When I got the phone back and stuck my sim back into it, it found 02 fine and says it is on it, the top right has 3G and a signal and the top centre has 02-UK and my Wi-Fi name next to it also. But no matter what I do, I cannot make or receive calls :( I have done the HRT and tried to register now and it says it has sent it, but nothing happens.
02, of course, do not have anything to say, but then that is not unexpected as the phone is mine, not theirs and I am not on contract, so I cannot blame them.
So - after that long winded explanation - can anyone offer any advice for getting my BB Bold 9700 back into my grubby mits in working order?
Any help appreciated
Please move if in wrong forum - thankyou (newbie)
Hi - thanks for the reply
Hi, thanks for the reply, it's been sending me a bit nuts, as I swapped out the sim to another phone and it works fine. Needless to say the atmosphere in our house is a little grim at the moment :)
Anyway, I assume you mean go to the call screen and key in ##000000 and then press the green dial/send button - is that right, or key it in from the front screen? I did it from the call screen and it just said call failed. But as a noob I am no doubt doing it wrong :)
Give me a load of computer bits and I can build you a pc, give me a phone and I can make it look like a pretty paper weight for you it seems :duh:
I went to the other options screen you described and it has the following for UK network.
Data Services: ON
While Roaming: PROMPT
Mobile Network: 02 UK
Network Selection Mode: AUTOMATIC
Network Mode: 3G & 2G
That is all that is listed in that screen
It's a shame, as the phone cost me quite some money to get and I had really come to love it - which is a surprise with me when it comes to phones, as I normally hate the things.
Any help, even if it doesn't work, as I have come to think that my wife has killed it, is appreciated.
