I just unlocked my blackberry 9900 and put in my koodo sim card but am stuck on the SOS signal for some reason. I took it out of a blackerry torch so I don't see why it is doing this.

First thing is we need to check to see if that BlackBerry is compatible with koodo. Not all of them are especially if they were originally bell or virgin models. Check using the online tool here:

If it turns out to be compatible, the next thing to check is the network mode. It can't be set to 2g only. So check that by navigating to go to menu---options---mobile network---scroll mode: select whatever mode will give you 3g.

If that works, we need to register your service books so navigate to options--advanced system setting --- host routing table --- press the menu (BlackBerry logo) key --- scroll to register now and select it --- tap ok --- hit the end key

You should get a message that you're registered

Next we need to be sure you're on a BlackBerry specific plan, I'll assume you are since you're coming from a torch.

Hope this helps, let us
