BlackBerry R900 (UK)

Hi, just got one of these off eBay and it arrived yesterday. Everything with it, perfect condition, total bargain. I've got an Orange SIM in it now and think it's so cool I actually plan on using it for texting/BBM/email. However: it's not connecting to GPRS (I understand it's supposed to come up in lowercase 'gprs' to indicate that it's actually online) and whenever I try to send a PIN message it instantly says it failed.


Are these devices blocked from use now? Or are they actually working on a previous incarnation of the BlackBerry infrastructure that no longer exists?
