    Hi Guys,

    I just bought a 8330 curve from someone who lived out in western canada. I'm located in Newfoundland. It's on the Telus network.

    I can't get this thing to work, it won't send or recieve anything. I've been on the phone with Telus for a few hours and their telling me it must be a hardware issue. But I'm not sure. Here's what I have:

    - Great signal, 5 bars.
    - When I first turn on the blackberry or restart the connections I get a 1xev and after a minutes that changes to 1x. lowercase characters.
    - When attempting to active by dialing *228, I get "call failed"
    - The current SID is 16414, which is the local bell site. NOTE: I also have a working 8830 from work that's on the bell network and it shows that same sid.
    - The homeSID is set to 16422 and the blackberry homesid is set to 17500on the Telus BB. The Bell bb, shows 16620 for the homeSID and the blackberry homesid.
    - I can't update the PRL because on can't connect to anything.
    - I've tried different OS versions, but that didn't help.

    ANY IDEAS!!! HELP!!!
