blackberry 8900 poor coverage

Hi guys i am new to the forum, anyway i have recently moved over to giffgaff!

The problem is i put my sim card in my unlocked blackberry 8900 and i am getting no signal, all that is showind up is the red SOS sign!

I tried the phone with a t-mobile sim and i am recieving a good signal with that so i aint sure its the phone, and my gg sim is getting a good signal in an old nokia i have!

I also checked the O2 coverage website and it says that i should be receiving a good 2g signal in my area!

Please help it driving me nuts!

Thanks!!!!!!

Try getting an antennae booster on ebay, it worked for my htc. Costs like 2 pounds :smileyhappy:

Forgive me for asking this but have you successfully activated your SIM and entered all the Internet and MMS settings into your blackberry?

Re: blackberry 8900 poor coverage

The fone i deffo unlocked as i have had a t-mobile sim and an orange sim in there in the past, i got a message with internet settings when i first put the sim in. And giffgaff say that the sim is registered. How would i go about entering the internet settings manually if the y wernt entered automatically?
