    I suggest wiping with jl cmder and then reinstalling the OS and see if that works. My youtube is YouTube - KillerNumberX's Channel and I show you how to do it.

    If the SIM came with the phone it is almost certainly deactivated by the previous owner. I'm suspicious about the password, most owners would wipe before shipping to ensure their data was gone so you may find its a stolen device and the IMEI is also blocked.

    You need to source your own SIM and have it setup with voice and BlackBerry data service, but I would have your service provider check the status of the IMEI against the UK Stolen Phones database before you commit to a contract.

    [Edit] You should also ask your provider to check the phone's PIN is free and it can be registered to your account. If the phone is stolen it may be blocked, and if the previous owner forgot to release it you may have problems getting full BB service.
