Bit of a newbie here hoping for some help!
I bought a blackberry curve 8900 secondhand off ebay for the missus, it had no screen and had no guarantee as to what else might be wrong. Having got a second hand screen fitted, everything appears to work apart from making/receiving calls and texts.
Now I have tried pulling the battery, tried a re install of the O.S and I even put in a password so that I could enter a wrong one 10 times so it would wip e and reinstall. No joy though to date, still cannot make or receive calls and texts despite showing a good signal and gprs showing in the corner.
Everything else seems to work bar this. I thought that the phone might be blacklisted but I found a site that you enter the IMEI number and it came back saying my phone was unblocked.
The phone is not locked either as i have checked this and the network is showing disabled.
If I go in to "manage settings" I can see that an O2 Mobile Network is checked, and then "service status" shows under Mobile Voice that the status is emergency calls only, connection not connected.
I have somewhere along the line reregistered the phone I think, but still nothing.
I must point out that I am using an O2 sim with an ordinary tarrif, it is not a blackberry tarrif although I would not have thought this matters for what I am trying to do at the moment. Indeed, I have my own blackberry 8900 and am just using an ordinary vodafone sim tarrif and that works fine. I tried the vodafone sim in the missus phone but it is exactly the same, cannot make/receive calls or txts.
So, has anyone any other ideas as to what I can do to get this phone working at all?
