Re: BB Curve 8520 wont let me make or receive calls.

Hello coachchuck1974

 

Welcome to the Community

 

This error only occurs when attempting to place a phone call using speed dial for a programmed number. Delete the speed dial number and then re-create it.

 

Goodluck and please let us know if this resolves the issue.

Re: BB Curve 8520 wont let me make or receive calls.

May I know how are you dialling it?

 

Please restart the phone by removing and placing the battery back while the device is ON. This process fixes the application modules in it without losing any data stored. Let us know if you still experience the issue after this.

Re: BB Curve 8520 wont let me make or receive calls.

Hi. My problem is similar to coachchunk. I am unable to make outgoing calls. My phone screen shows its dialling then the call is disconnected immediately after. Internet,BBM and sms send and receive all work. Advice please? Thanks
