phone indicates not in service area when I am

Hi, I just received my daughters blackberry curve from her as she just upgraded.  I cannot connect to the wireless network and the phone indicates that I am out of service area.  However, when I put my sim card back in my old phone I have service just fine and always have sitting here in my home.  I made sure that the wireless network is turned on, etc but no luck.  I am new to blackberry and not to techno savy anyway so help would be appreciated.... Thanks

You should call CS and have them switch your IMEI to the BlackBerry. You'll also need to sign up for a data plan.

Was your old phone a 3G phone?  There are areas that are 3G only, and I don't think the original Blackberry Curves were 3G.
