Re: Help!! blackberry 7290
Cantact your network provider and ask for a sim update and a gprs install message this may solve the prob.
also check the message centre number is in the phone correctly, goto message settings and message centre number, insert the correct one from below save it and then you should be able to send messages.
Network operator SMS Centre Number O2 (Was BT Cellnet / Genie mobile) +447802000332 (contract) +447802092035 (pay as you go) Alt: +447802000334 T-Mobile (was One2One) +447958879879 Orange +447973100973 Alt: +447973100974 Vodafone +447785016005 Tesco Mobile +447802092035 Virgin +447958879890 3 / Three +447782000800

i'm a business traveler and travel to a lot of foreign countries , in my experience unlock codes
are the very best method to unlock Blackberry phone , i used unlock codes procured from http://www.unlocking4u.com/
to unlock my phones and it worked wonderfully well
I am actually unsure what could have caused this. It might not be unlocked correctly or could have been damaged when the software was modified. But T-Mobile carried the BB7290 so if you can get ahold of the person who unlocked it for you I would ask for a branded T-Mobile phone.
Like you being with T-mobile, I bought a cingular phone off ebay that wasn't unlock. My sims didn't work either. My network just said call Cingular which is now AT&T and they gave me the MEP code to unlock it. Beware, you need to confirm all of your information from your network before they will help you.
It sounds like the device was originally activated and worked with a Blackberry enterprise Server, where the administrator had voice calls blocked for the users, so that they did not run up bills - in other words, it was programmed just to do email. If this is the situation, there may not be a solution available to you.
Call your phone carrier and ask them to help - make sure you have the correct "plan"...
