Sim Disabled
Network Disabled
Network Subset Disabled

Ok , so do you have a Blackberry Data plan? Unlocking does not mean it will work without one.

Change the connections to Automatic so it will pick up O2. Then you should be able to do voice and SMS.

You might also get with your carrier and make sure that your SIM card is compatible with BlackBerry. Sometimes they are not compatible.

Wondering if the OP even has service but because it's a second hand BB maybe it's defective.
