There's definitely a problem with this particular handheld.
Perhaps it was once reported lost or stolen, because it appears that RIM has removed this device from its network or has a service block on it.
Probably explains this comment you made above --> "if i send a mail, it fails with a red cross saying that "Message Status: service block""
You can try calling RIM, but I have a feeling that in the end you're probably looking at replacing this handheld with a different one.
