Satty_p - without a BlackBerry Data Plan, you can still use the BB for voice and SMS text.

As Nj said you can use the BB for phone and SMS....

Data Connection refused means that you do not have a BB data plan and cant do internet and email...

Yes, you can just use the device as a phone and you'll also be able to send text messages as well. You do NOT have to have the BB data plan in order for it to work as a phone. Yet, you'll get the full experience of the BB having a BB data plan on the device(s).

Enterprise activation is for those who are on our employers BES server. This doesn't affect you because you don't have the data plan.

also, in the top right had corner, it is gprs and when there is an imcoming call, the arrow in the top right flashes and then the call goes to voicemail. its like the phone's are rejecting it.

Emergency Calls means that your BB is trying to use a network for which it is not authorized.

Is this a previously owned BlackBerry. It may have a policy on it that prevents phone calls. Check in Options / Security and see if there is an IT Policy on it.
