Hi. Wailly

The following are the 3 possible causes of 'Initialization Failed' on a Blackberry device:

1. A bad SIM card (it contacts may just be insulated owing to oxidation and only requiring cleaning)

2. A bad SIM card slot (the slot's leads too may be only dirty and requiring cleaning)

3. A Suspended/blacklisted headset (The Blackberry headset may be suspended/blacklisted due to a breach of contract or by having been reported to be lost or stolen)
