There may be an IT Policy on it which is restricting phone calls. Check in the Security section to see if there is an IT Policy.

If so, search on "Remove IT Policy" to see if that will help you remove it.

Good luck!.

It still has some policy left on it that likely can't be erased but most everything should work for you just fine.
