I just bought a Bold 9700 on Ebay. It was originally for T-Mobile but the phone has been unlocked. I am able to send and receive SMS/MMS and to make phone calls. I'm also able to connect to wi-fi and use WAP internet connections.
I am, however, unable to use blackberry service apps (facebook, live messenger, bbm) and unable to use blackberry for e-mail (other than using the browser to access gmail webpage).
I've tried getting service from two different providers and none of them worked. At max i get an "edge" or a "3G" connection.
My Host Routing Table is always empty, even though I have contracted BIS services. Also, even though I contracted BIS I get the menu option "Enterprise Services" under the "Advanced Options" menu. When I inserted my SIM card into my friend's phone, her phone automatically registered into the the network and her Host Routing Table got populated.
I tried downgrading and then re-upgrading my phone software, but I'm still stuck in the same spot. It's as if RIM did not recognize the existance of my phone. But I am able to use my PIN to access WorldAPP (through wi-fi).
I feel like I'm driving a Porsche at 10 miles per hour. What can I do to get my BOLD 9700 to register on the RIM network and have my BIS service package work?

thanks for the reply. This is the same reasoning one of the people at my service provider came up with when I called for the 20th time. I then called T-Mobile, but they were not very helpful.
I'm trying to contact the vendor at the moment, to see if he can have the PIN released.
Any other suggestions on how I can get this to work?

Nothing can be done as far as I'm aware your end other than do what you are doing and contact the seller.
Data protection means that no-one other than the last registered user will be able to de-register the PIN.
