    I bought an sprint tour off craiglist and am trying to use it in India with a Vodafone SIM with BlackBerry data plan. The phone accepts the SIM, registers with the network and I am able to send Text SMS as well as Browse the web as well as use 3rd party apps that make use of data.

    Under Options>Advanced>SIM>MEPD it shows everything as Disabled. There is no "Activation Required" written anywhere. So the phone seems to be unlocked.

    However, I am not able to make or receive calls. It simply disconnects as soon as the calling screen comes. Also, the number appears to be not reachable from other phones.

    Am I missing something or is the phone really not unlocked yet? Is there a solution?

    Maybe your carrier blocks service from foreign carrier devices.

    I was in India just this summer with a tour. It seems that Vodafone India blocks foreign Blackberry's to promote their own branded devices. This was explained to me while I was in a Vodafone store.
