Headphones with microphone for mobile phone

Hi all,

Sorry to trouble you but i have a question which i am hoping someone can assist me with as i'm not very technicial minded sorry.. I got a pair of headphones with a microphone that have a microphone that were supposed to act as a handsfree for a mobile phone. In saying that they were under @10.00 in tx max(urban beatz is name of them) so perhaps the mic might be damaged but when i try to make a phone call with them you cannot hear anything with them... I have a blackberry curve 8520 so perhaps it may need special ones or something? I can hear music through them no problem when i use my phone as an mp3 player but as for making or recieving a call it doesnt work. Is there anyone can shed a light on the matter? Much appreciated as always.
