Maps cannot receive data...

Hello !!

 

Something very strange happens to me and I'm very embarrassed...  I try to explain

I live in China but previously, BB hadn't service provided by China Telecom, so same than everybody here, I has a BB account in Hong Kong.
For daily communication, I have also a Pocket PC with a China Telecom SIM card.
Since 1 month, as BB is now available in China, I applied for a BB account for my China Telecom account.

So I have 2 SIM cards : 1 in Hong Kong for BB account and 1 from China Telecom for also BB account.

Here what is my problem.
When I insert my China Telecom SIM Card in my PPC, MAPS runs perfectly (satellite views are downloaded, location is provided, ..)

This is the same when I insert my BB HK SIM card in my PPC, everything is perfect !

 
With my Curve device, there is a problem.

With my BB HK SIM card inserted, in Maps, satellite views are downloaded and location is detected.
But when I insert my China Telecom SIM Card in my Curve, it doesn't work. Data cannot be downloaded whereas no parameters are changed. That's very strange and very frustrating !

 Does anybody can help me ?

Re: Maps cannot receive data...

hello,

do you have a data plan with your China Telecom subscription ?

Re: Maps cannot receive data...

in the US, some carriers disable the Blackberry Maps application. Check if China Telecom does the same.

But what is very strange is that with the same SIM card and the same carrier, before the upgrade to BB account (so, just with the phone and dat contract, Maps ran perfectly...
