BIS Activation

Hello, guys.

 

I have BB 9930 Verizon which has been unlocked. 

I'm using T mobile prepaid now, but 3G does't work. 

Also I can't get BIS. I don't know why. I already called to T mobile customer center but they didn't answer me anything. 

 

So I plan to verizon prepaid now, is verizon offering BIS?

My problem is if I go to email set up I don't have Blackberry internet service. Just only I see is enterprise activation. 

 

Also if I reinstall OS, is that worthy to work?

Anybody give an answer. I'm being crazy now!!

Is this on Tmobile USA?

 

You will not be able to use the 9930 on Tmobile with 3G as Verizon devices are locked within the US to their 3G network and you will get only EDGE at the best on Tmobile. And that as well will be locked.

 

Likely, the only thing you will get on the 9930 on Tmobile will be voice and SMS, no data, no email, no browser etc.

If you connect to a Wifi router you should be able to browser the internet on the browser, but I do believe you may not even get the browser icon..

I'm in US, it's has been unlocked as I mentioned. 

Mostly people said it's possible if I unlocked the phone, I can use data.

And when I talked to T mobile customer center, they have no dobut about unlocked. 

They thoght it's wired too. 

I don't understand why it's not working.

Re: BIS Activation

tkdgusdid, those "most people" lied to you, or didn't know what they were talking about.

 

Unlocking a Verizon BlackBerry is completely different than unlocking an ATT or Tmobile device.

Same with Sprint devices... even if "unlocked" the data portion of the device is still not open on ATT and Tmobile.

 

Now, you take that Verizon device to Europe on Vodafone or Orange or other networks, you'll be ok.

 

Trust me, don't try to use a Verizon BlackBerry on Tmobile or ATT, you will go mad trying for data.
