    Blackberry 8700v Big problem !!!

    Advertisement



    I got a 8700v from my friend. It's locked by Vodafone. I bought unlock code and unlocked it. It found the network in my country. It can receive sms. ( I don't know it can or can't send sms because I never tried. ) But It can't make a call. When I call , I got this message : "Sorry, only emergency calls are allowed."
    I don't know how to fix it. Does anyone get this problem like me ? Did you fix it. Plz tell me the solution.
    Thanks.

    I see that both Vodafone and Mobifone are GSM carriers so that shouldn't be the issue.

    Maybe the phone didn't unlock correctly. Can you try the process again?

    I bought a unlock code. And I follow the instruction. Now , when I go to Ôption, Sim card and hold ALT + MEPD or MEP2 , it's doesn't work again.
    I don't know how to fix it.

    Sounds to me like you don't have a service at all. Have you arranged for service with a local carrier?

    wow thats weird. is there a lock on the sim card? try re-inserting the sim. I think it may have not been put in place properly.

    I have only seen this same situation one other time. A while back a friend received a fone from a relative in china it worked for a few months no problem. Then it started acting exactly as u describe.

    They took it to a local fone store and after much poking around they found out the fone was reported stolen from a nokia shipment.

    You better find out from your friend what the history of this 8700v is. I hope I am wrong.

    Each model of the 8700 is designed for a specific carrier. Not sure who the V is for~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
