Is the SIM card on Orange as well?
Get a SIM card swap at the local Orange store, newer SIMs work best, even if the current SIM works on another phone.

What would happen if it was blocked?

There's a good chance it is either.
But rule out the SIM card first, it's a free swap to change the SIM, and the easiest thing to rule out first.
