    I bought the BB from my roommate, whom is trustworthy, and both of us are boggled as to why the phone is not working. I spoke to both the staff at Virgin and Rogers. Both confirmed the phone is unlocked. Yet, the phone displays "Call Failed" even when trying to call Virgins support line (#111). I set up my account online and added $15 pay as you go minutes...all good until I tried to call to activate an add on. "Call Failed" is all I got. The mobile network signal symbol says "SOS" in a red light. But what does this mean and why??? Please help. No one seems to have any idea as to why this is. Thank you kindly.

    I'm not aware of the 8250 model, perhaps you mean the 8520? If so, then it won't work on work on Bell/Virgin because the 8520 has only GSM (2G) bands, and Bell does have a GSM network.

    So to recap, the 8520 will only work on Rogers or Fido.

    It's worth noting ATT is also gsm. Virgin is cdma. So it should work on att as well. However to my understanding I don't believe the produce different models with different bands all the phones regardless of carrier should suport any band the phone was designed to support. which is why I can send this on a Verizon Q10 over the ATT network.
