I just got a koodo pre-paid sim for a blackberry 8520 for my younger brother. The problem that I'am having is that every sim card that I tried from Rogers,Chat-R,Telus,Petrol Canada all worked except for Koodo. I went to the a Koodo shop in the mall and the guy said I need data for my Host routing table is there another way around this for the sim to work?

Data on blackberry does not work with Koodo on prepaid. Sorry if you got a misinformation.

@Erwin I know it doesn't work but is there no way around getting the Sim to work on the Curve?

If it's unlocked and the network isn't giving it service, it means the phone won't work on the network.

I'm pretty sure the 8500 does not use sim cards(IE: The 8530 is a CDMA phone, which does not take a sim card).

Which ever blackberry it is it takes a sim card ( Mini sim to be exact ) When I put the petro-Canada sim card in it works everything functions, Same with the Telus mirco sim with a extender. Koodo isn't working at all, Its a GSM phone.

Then Koodo's network isn't accepting the phone. That can happen with non-Koodo phones. There isn't a way for Koodo to force it to work either.
