Exclamation No calls or texts on BB curve 8520

Please Login to Remove!

Hey. I dont know how to explain this fully as this is my first BB. I aquired a BB off a friend. When i bought it off him it still worked ok but the sim i was using got broke. so i put a new sim in on o2 (like the old 1) (i configured it first by ringing o2) and for some reason i can't make any calls or texts. I just keep getting Call Failed message. I have the BB data plan and GPRS workes fine and i did try the sim in another BB and i could make calls on that so i know its not the sim. Im all registered with BB protect and can download apps and things and everything else works fine. What can i do ? do i get the phone flashed or is there a simple solution for this. i think it might of got blocked somehow and if it has will flashing it work ? Any help would be grate. Thanks

If it got blocked, flashing will do no good.
The Search tool and BlackBerryFAQ answer many questions.

Generally phones get blocked when they are reported as stolen.
