BB Storm 9500 :: Cant Make Receive Calls Or Texts After Ebay Unlock
May 2, 2010
I have a Blackberry 9500 Storm locked to Vodafone and recently bought an unlock code from Ebay to use on my Orange sim. After following the unlock procedure the phone accepted the orange sim and shows "security disabled". But I can't use the phone to make or receive calls and texts. I have checked the network settings and they are showing up orange. I have contacted the ebay seller but they just said check sim card activated - which it is.
I unlocked my 9530 and everything works great except I cant make or receive calls and so I went through the trouble shooting process from blackberry and I need to switch my active phone number and it said to click on my number on the phone screen and switch to the number I need to be there, well I try clicking on the number and nothing happens so I cant figure out what else to try.
I bought a 9530 and Unlocked it. I inserted my ATT sim card and it won't make or receive calls. I am not to worried about the data plan at this point. I just want be able to call and get calls. Am I missing something? The phone was from Verizon. I unlocked it but when I restore connections, it still says verizon wireless as the network, even with my ATT sim card installed.
I have been having a problem with a storm2 9550. I have wiped it clean several times to try to get the password to Disable with no luck. I upgraded the software and then I started to get a busy signal when trying to call out and cannot receive calls either. Same goes for text messages. When prompted that radio is off, i always turn it back on.. It is unlocked and still has Verizon as mobile network.
Unlocked my verizon bb storm yesterday. It is now an AT&T carrier bb. It made/received calls all day.
Updated the phone via USB cable to the latest software.
Didn't notice anything was wrong today at first. Set my email up today, and it works great along with the txt messaging.
However I cannot make or receive calls. It keeps saying "Congestion". I have called AT&T and they say there is no congestion in my area and told me they can't help me because this phone isn't for at&t and blah blah blah.
I don't know what to do now. Any ideas of things I can try?
I do know that I had to make room for the update and barely had room if this means anything.....
when I make a call it immediately says "call ended/closed" and when I enter *110# I get this message: Connections problems or invalid MMI-code.When I restart my phone, maybe repeting that process like 10 times then I can send/recieve calls/texts, but only for a brief moment.Before it wasn't as bad... I always got the Connection problem message after a I've made a phone call. But now it is bugging me 24/7.I have resetted my phone, I've even upgraded it. Still nothing.I have changed network operator. Still nothing.I have inserted my phone card into another phone and with that phone I have no problems.So I suspect it most be my phone's fault. I have a Xperia x10.
My iPhone 4S has been working on and off for as long as I've had it. There are times when I can't make or receive calls or send or receive texts.When I attempt to make a call, it never rings and when I try to end these calls, it doesn't register that the call has ended. People receive these calls but when they answer, there is silence. If people call me, I don't get any notification of this.
When I send texts, the loading bar at the top of the page never reaches the end - the same things happens: people receive the texts but when they reply it never reaches me.I have replaced the phone and it did t make a difference. I am with Vodafone and I'm always in full reception when this happens.When I connect to wifi, the text messages (but not missed calls) come through.
I have an iPhone with sprint, and it has worked more than amazingly prior to this. It wasn't until last night around 12am that this started. I have had the phone for 4 to 5 months now. The bars in the top left are flat and occasionally one will pop up. I can t make calls and texts are slow to or just don't send at all. I was messing around on my download app in the browser and it closed and then thu problem arises. I have deleted the app even turned on and off my phone several times and turned airplane mode on and off several times. Please help:/ this is not an issue with location, and everytime I make calls it just says "calling mobile..."
I bought my Blackberry Curve 9360 brand new from a Vodafone shop about a month and a half ago and today when I woke up it wouldn't let me make/recieve calls or texts. i've rebooted it, taken the battery out and checked the mobile network connection and that i haven't blocked calls or put call fowarding on. Also in the top right hand corner the signal says full and 3G.
My iPhone 4 started to act up. I can't make or receive calls, and same thing with texts. I also can't connect to the internet. When this happens, my iPhone turns off & it won't turn back on unless I charge it. When it's back on, there's a message about a reset that tells me I should go to apple.com/support. Later, it goes back to normal and everything works. And again, it stops working. This has been repeating for a couple of days.
blackberry has stopped letting me make calls or send texts and i cant receive them to, I have full signal and have spoken to o2 they tell me it a phone problem and the shop tells me it a o2 problem,,In the service status it saysmobile voice status: not availableConnection: not connectedBut everything else is working fine i can still get email ect
Was looking for a bit for advice please as I have come to a standstill with my Curve 8520.It was working fine for the past week there and in the last two days I have been unable to make or receive calls or texts. My SIM works in other phones, just not my Blackberry.
I'm new to blackerries but I have read that any sim card will work with it? However my Sim Card (O2 pay and go) is not getting signal and is just has the 'SOS' symbol in the top right corner. When i put the sim card in my old phone (not a blackberry) it works fine. Have I set up the blackberry wrong or is the phone faulty?

I recently went abroad and was unable to make calls or receive texts, although I was able to use BB messenger, Facebook and twitter. I contacted my carrier (vodafone) who told me my sim card was out of date and I need a new one.When I returned home I had a new sim card waiting for me, when I put this in my phone and activated it all was fine for about twho hours, then I lost all the email settings. I did not think this would be a big deal and set about setting them up again.
I finally managed to set up my hotmail (I need to use the vodafone BIS website), but no matter what I do I can not set up the other two emails. I have contacted vodafone who say this is my problem and i must have wrong password or settings (despite the fact these worked fine).
My question is, can I restore the email settings from a backup?
I bought two new blackberry 8520 from ebay from different sellers. One unbranded and unlocked, the other branded and locked to Vodaphone. The unlocked one works fine with my tesco sim, no problems. The branded/locked to Vodaphone one was unlocked this morning with a code I paid for and got off the internet and not through Vodaphone. It now shows the phone is disabled and it recognises the Tesco sim (although still branded), but all calls and messages fail when sent and if I try to ring it it goes straight to voicemail.
Is it the phone or the sim? The phone was an unwanted gift so the seller is not sure if the phone's pin was registered. Tesco have asked vodaphone to release the pin which will happen in the next 24-48 hours but will this make any difference? Some of the forums with the same query as mine seem conflicting, i.e. release the pin to get access to BBM and internet but not a direct problem with calling and texting.
Exactly as the heading suggests - I cannot make or receive calls or texts, and it has been like this for over a day now. And yes, I do have signal. Everything else is fine, and it isn't a problem with the service provider.
It's a blackberry 8530, it wont let me make calls, just says 'call failed' also wont allow people to call me. This is the same for texts, I am not sure if this has something to do with it, but it doesn't seem to tell me my number? For example in the call log, it says 'my number:' but blank... and then also on options>SIM card> the 'phone number' is blank to.
I have an LG G3 and I was having some issues with the audio jack on it. I contacted LG and they said that since it is still under warranty I can mail it out to them, but my phone will be away for at least a week. I get called frequently from my work and thought if I set up Google Voice on it perhaps I would be able to at least receive messages on our Samsung Tab S 10.5. I went to Google Voice and set it up using my existing number with the Google Voice on Sprint.
It went through no problem, I was able to verify the phone and everything. Thing is, my fiance and I share the same tablet and when I looked at the call forwarding email, I realized it was to my fiance's email and not to me. I had accidentally signed up for Google Voice for my phone under his email account. So I went to disable Google Voice on Sprint after waiting 15 minutes or so for all the services to fully implement and tried to set it up under my email. I got to the verifying the phone number part, hit call me now, and nothing would go through. I tried several times and still nothing. I tried making a call from my phone and it says "we could not complete your call, please try again".
I called Sprint and explained everything to them. We went through several steps of resetting and reactivating the phone and still nothing. Whenever somebody tries to call me they get the same message "we could not complete your call, please try again." It shows that I'm connected to the network service no problem on Sprint's end and that something with Google Voice is locking me out. What am I supposed to do? I've gone through both my fiance's and my account and removed all traces of my phone number, hoping that I would be able to reset it but still nothing.
Both accounts for Google Voice say that we need to get a Google number and that there is no number associated with either accounts. I really don't know what to do as my phone is doing the lights on nobody home sort of thing. I can still use the internet with wifi no problem and can even use the mobile data to do searches on the Internet, I just can't make or receive calls or messages.
I have a unlocked blackberry 9530 from verizon wireless USA, I live in Argentina, in here the frequency is 850 MHz, in theory supports either ,when I put a sim from any three operators models, sign making and falls in resources, and I can not make or receive calls.
Ok this is my situation. I have a blackberry curve from tmobile. My sister got a new phone so she gave me her blackberry storm 9350. I went to a cell phone shop around my area and they unlocked the storm so i can use it with my tmobile sim card. I put on the sim card and i thought everything was working perfect but then i found out that i have multiple problem.
The good: I can make calls, i can use the internet.
The bad: when i place a call my sister number appears in the other person phone (not my tmobile number), i cant call my voicemail, cant setup my email, cant receive calls and more problems i still havent discovered lol.
i just purchased a replacement bb bold 9000 off ebay (it's an unlocked at&t handset that i bought after my bb bold got stolen... total bummer) and it was working fine all week up until last night when it stopped being able to handle incoming and outgoing calls and texts. The internet and email functions still work which is very peculiar. also some further info, when i put my sim card into another handset (in this case a nokia e65) all my normal call functions work and when i put another sim card in the bold the same thing happens (when i try to make a call it instantly pops up with a call failed warning). another thing is the bold shows full service coverage... currently the bold about shows... v184.108.40.2064 (Platform 220.127.116.11) im on australia and for some reason i cant update the os to v5
I haqve just moved to Tenerife and got a movistar sim. I can receive calls and texts but cant send texts. I have tried to resend the service books but it wont allow me saying "your device had a problem connecting to the server". When i try send a text it says "requested facility not implented". What do I do?
i have a unlocked blackberry storm for tmobile i can send and recieve texts and the internet works fine, however when i try to call it says no channel/circuit avaliable. i went to india for a few weeks and calling worked just fine there is there any way to fix this problem?
On my Storm 9530, if I was texting more than 160 characters i used to be able to type a page, save it as a draft and do the same with subsequent pages. I could review all the drafts to make sure they made sense and then send them one after another so that the recipient received them at about the same time.I recently "Upgraded" my software. I don't seem to be able to do this anymore. I have to send page 1 and then start typing page 2. And once i've send page 1, of course it's gone and no corrections can be made. The recipient then gets page 1 and has to wait to see where I'm going until i can send page 2 and then page 3, etc.Is there any way around this inefficiency? Can I get my old system back?
