My Device: Blackberry Curve 8520

OS 5.0 - Unable to send sms/Unable to make calls (Wireless network REQUIRED?)

I'll make it short and sweet.

 

Since the update...

 

As long as I'm OUT of a wireless network, I can't send SMS, I can't make phonecalls.

 

I can receive SMSes though.

 

I've tried resetting the device (BB Curve 8520), I've plugged out the battery and put it back again, I've taken out the SIM Card and placed it back in. Nothing works.

 

BBM is still fine. All data services are okay, it's just the basic phone services are having problems.

 

May I know why do I need a wireless network to make phonecalls or to send SMSes?

 

Anyone can offer me any advice? Thanks.

By the way, data services are fine - BBM, FB, Browser, etc. It's just the basic phone functions that aren't working. I can't make or receive calls either. I will get an 'engaged' tone on the telephone when I try to call my own device.
