data connection refused
I guess you didn't search or read any FAQs first. That error means you aren't paying for blackberry service, please read the FAQs for a better explanation.

The other stuff is some application installed on the phone trying to make connections.

"Emergency calls only" means usually that the SIM is not active. But in your case maybe the IMEI is blocked. Another possibility is the previous owner had the phone service disabled by a policy on a BES server.

I just had the same problem with mine and i fixed it with a few easy steps. First check to see if there is a IT policy on your blackberry it is under options then security it will state it on the bottom. if there is then follow the steps on this website.
