I need to use my blackberry. I am living outside the US. I got the code from EBAY and the phone is unlocked. under MEPD shows all locks disabled.
When I put in a sim card, it goes to "gsm" then "gprs" then it says 'data connection refused'.
When I try to make a call, I get 'emergency calls only'
I have put in on manual, it detects the network, but always 'data connection refused'. I cannot make any calls
I turn wireless on and off. take out the battery. tried different sims (900/1800 and 850/1900 sims) , but I just cannot make any calls.
I am thinking that maybe I should flash to an unbranded (or local) 8700g firmware. maybe this will solve my problem ?
I just want to make calls. I have unlocked blackberries before (also other models of 8700c too) and just put in my SIM and make calls. this one just does not allow any calls. ( I am more intrerested in calls than the data aspect right now
Please advise how to solve this problem
