Default 8310 turns off once I add SIM card

Someone gave me a Curve which I was hoping to use as a backup (mostly for taking pictures though) to my 8820. The person told me that he was having problems with it rebooting so I figured I'd give it a crack.

I wiped the OS, loaded the newest 4.5.124, and everything seems fine. Was even able to sync it up with my Outlook. By all looks of it, the phone works perfectly UNTIL I put in my SIM card.

The phone registers on the network but as soon as anything is done on the Curve the device shuts off.

The SIM card works perfectly in my 8820. And if I don't put a SIM into the Curve, the device will stay running for days without any problem.

Am I looking at a bricked unit? I know it seems so but figured I'd run this by everyone before throwing it in a drawer for parts. Does blackberry (or AT&T) offer any type of repair/exchange program?

Thanks in advance.
