Default Re: Curve 8520 no texts or calls

Well, putting in a Orange SIM made no difference. So I decided to call Orange customer service to see if they could see if the phone was blacklisted.

I explained that I had bought it secondhand, and they confirmed that it was blacklisted, but they said that they would take it off the blacklisting. The told me to take the battery out and put it back in again and it should be ok.

I did this with the Orange SIM in, and it was ok. I could make calls. I replaced the SIM with my Vodafone one, but it still had the same problem, no calls or texts.

I don't know if it takes time to propagate the blacklist removal or if they have managed to make it so that it will only work on Orange. I will give it a bit of time and try again.
