Help! Can't make or receive calls! New Phone....

Hello All,


Hope you can help me.

I have purchased a second hand BB Bold on eBay,

Put my sim card in it and started as usual.

(I already have a Storm on BB network/Vodafone)

Received e-mail saying network registered etc.

BUT, unable to make or receive any calls?


Signal is full and 3G. In the 'manage connections' all is connected.


Phone is unlocked (originally Vodafone)


The seller has perfect feedback and obviously I can back the phone to him within 14 days but wanted to try and resolve if possible as got at a reasonable price.......


Any help will be appreciated Smiley Happy

Re: Help! Can't make or receive calls! New Phone....

I believe your problem is too simple, your sim card is a cdma sim card, and the blackberry bold is a GSM phone.

Try with a friend's sim card if they have tmobile or att .
