    Did you have a SIM card from your precious phone? I'm guessing you did as your profile says you have a Rogers Pearl Flip. You should only have to call and activate a SIM if you didn't have one. Put the SIM card in and try it. If it doesn't work, ensure the phone is really unlocked. You will only get EDGE I believe as well.
    I have never had to provide the EMEI as that gets registered as soon as you put your SIM in and start using the phone.

    You need to have dataplan from your carrier to get internet and services.
    it's working in this order:

    1) phone unlocking.
    2) activating your dataplan with BIS
    3) update service book.

    Easy and simple
