    Welcome to the forum. I'm not familiar with that phone, but hopefully someone here can offer some help.

    When you performed the FDR (factory reset) did you turn off the Automatic Backup option? Sometimes the same problem app (s) or settings are downloaded right back onto the phone if that option is checked. After the FDR, did you try to make a call & send a text before installing any apps again, before updating any apps?

    I've changed the title of your post to better reflect your problem. Including model name and a short description of your problem will often lead to more help more quickly, though I'm in the same boat as @Sajo as far as not having heard of that device before.

    Best I can suggest is to confirm that the cellular network settings are correct for your carrier. Just because the SIM works in a different phone doesn't mean the pre-programmed defaults in your phone are correct.

    Is there a chance your network provider has blocked outgoing calls and texts (SMS) for some reason? Maybe get in touch with them and verify your line is not blocked from outgoing traffic?

    Have you even bothered to double check the network settings yet? Or are you just assuming they're still correct because the phone used to work? You never told us what carrier(s) you're using so its hard for us to help.
