Does anyone have any info regarding 'Three Network' (Australia) SIM cards not working in MC7094?
Jun Kim reports MC7094 works with Telstra SIM card, but takes a working Three Network SIM card from their Blackberry and it fails in the MC7094.

Can SIMs that were meant for

Can SIMs that were meant for Blackberry's be used in any other type of devices?  I thought BBs always had their own specific data connection stuff (i.e. there is a separate pricing plan from the carrier), and assumed that would mean that its SIM is probably setup to connect in some different way.

I have no idea regarding BlackBerry SIMs.

Normally, a carrier needs to approve the use of our devices on their network.  Does anyone know if we ever got approval from them?

If it doesn't work on MC7094,

If it doesn't work on MC7094, then most likely it is not compatible with MC7094. To really find out why it won't work, you should send the SIM to Cinterion for the answer. If this is only for a test, then it is a wast of time.

I thought that our GSM

I thought that our GSM 'unlocked' terminals will work with any valid SIM card. Carrier approval was only required for CDMA, i.e.Sprint, Verizon, etc..

I will try to get more detail

I will try to get more detail on how the SIM is failing. If  it is not being recognized, or just unable to find service. I will also ask if they have contacted that carrier to determine if our MC70X4 is supported. Thanks, everyone. any other suggestions would be welcome.

A valid SIM means it works

A valid SIM means it works without any probelm for the network. If it doesn't work, then I don't call it as a valid SIM.

There is no difference in SIM

There is no difference in SIM card between blackberry and others. It is just blackberry required different level of service in order to exercise the full capabilities of the device. Also the old SIM card (5V) is forward compatible and should work on a newest devices. However the new SIM (3.3 V) may not work on  oldest devices. But this should not be the case with MC7094.

Also "not working" meaning  - can not recognize the SIM card? Can not registered with the network? Can not make data or voice call? If you collect RIL log it will shows a lot.

If the customer wants to use

If the customer wants to use one SIM for both Blackberry and our device but it won't work (does not connect) then you should send it to Cinterion to get the answer. It may need some change to the RIL for this network.

Talk to Daniel Park in

Talk to Daniel Park in Austrailia. He has been working with ECSG on several regional related issues with slow network registration and usage. Although he has an "Alpha" RIL and some of his results look promising we do not want it to go to any cusomters unitl his tests are complete. If your issues are the same as his, you may want to be added to his case. If they are new issues, logs would as mentioned earlier would be needed.
