Default Curve 8520 no texts or calls

I know this has been discussed before, but I have not found it resolved anywhere.

My daughter recently lost her Curve 8520 on Vodafone, so I bought her a second hand Curve 8520 that was on Orange, and had it unlocked.

The SIM card details now show as Disabled for all options.

Prior to unlocking, the phone was updated with the current version of OS.

The phone can be used for Internet, email and BBM, but will not make or receive calls or texts.

I have contacted my provider who have confirmed the the IMEI is not blacklisted, but because the SIM works in another Vodafone Blackberry they say that the fault is with the handset and will take it no further as it is an Orange handset.

I have Registered the handset in the Host Routing Table, and the phone shows Vodafone UK at the top instead of SOS, it also shows EDGE with a good signal.

When you try to make a call you get "Call Failed" with three sets of three beeps.

I'm not sure what else I can do. Vodafone did get me to remove the battery and SIM while the handset was on.

Does anyone else have any suggestions?
