    BB 7230 probs, call failed, phone not working

    Advertisement



    Can any one help please, have got an O2 badged 7230, it has been unlocked, mepd shows everything disabled and network inactive. mep2 doesnt show anything so am confident it is unlocked.when itry to phone out it goes thru the motions for a second and then call fails comes up. it has full strength on the arials and the gprs is in lower case so it is not working but am not bothered about that, just want it to phone out and sync. interesting is that i can send SMS messages ok and it is contacting the service provider because i have been looking at call blocking and with a voda card voda say what is password, orange are saying no blocking allowed.
    any body got any toughts as to why it wont phone in or recieve calls

    skipperstu, welcome to PinStack.

    Not really understanding, but you do have an account with Orange? You can't make a phone call, but can send SMS? What does Call Blocking have to do with this problem? Are you trying to call someone that has blocked calls from you? And if you are on Orange, what does Vodafone have to do with it?

    Hello
    thanks for the welcome.
    the phone was with O2, I have a contract with orange and vodaphone, i have tried orange and voda sims in the 7230, both can send sms but will not make phone calls, gprs is enabled on both but will not work ( i suspect because i havent enabled it to the BB) gprs is not the prob at the mo. the blocking was mentioned cause on voda i can click on it and she talks to voda and at one point i thought it might be call blocking on my phone.

    Found the prob, it was blocked by O2 because the previous owner had cancelled his contract, i finally got some sense when i insisted on being put through to the dedicated BB techies.
    checkmenddotcom was where I was pointed to check the imei number to see if it was blocked.

    Glad to know you found out why. Now, did they unblock it, or do you still have a useless brick of a cell phone?
