Can someone shed some light on this for me please?
Data is for internet and apps.....phone calls and texts just use the radio signal. Just to be clear. They're 2 different things. You don't need data for calls and texts. I think you know this, but wanted to be sure.
Do you have the new Telus or T-Mobile radio flashed? Only those 2 work on anything current. So what rom or stock version are you running? With the proper radio and apn settings, it should work.
Tho if its an issue caused by unlocking, then I'm not sure.....never done it myself. Did you Google the issue??
