Default Can a locked Blackberry 8310 be restored....

Please Login to Remove!

I ordered my son a replacement Blackberry through AT&T on 3/13/08. I still have the packing slip. For whatever reason and all of a sudden, it is now displaying above the signal meter in blue 'SOS'. 'Initialization Failed' is also displayed. When I check the carrier through connection manager, T-Mobile, not AT&T, is shown as being the servie carrier. Every thing else works - it displays the 'emergency only 911' readout. I have attempt a full systems reset - nothing!

I still have the packing slip as proof that this is a legally purchased phone. I have dealt directly with AT&T, but because it is a refurb, it is beyond aits 90-day warranty and there is nothing they can do. I only wish to know if there are any options to reset what appears to be an otherwise decent phone?

Thank you!
