Re: how can i install uma on blackberry torch

Hello vincehartley and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


When you use an unlocked BlackBerry device on a mobile carrier who does not have that device, you are not able to get all the features of the device.


Also, with UMA, you need a device branded to the carrier who provides the UMA service. Since this BlackBerry was unlocked, it won't be able to use UMA service.


You can only install software designed for the branded carrier. Even if Orange did have a Torck 9800 in their line up, you wouldn't be able to install it on your BlackBerry since it's branded another carrier.


Hope this helps.
