I have the same problem too...no one can help me yet. I use the blckberry storm 9530 and cannot check balance or reload credit using the eg *124# command for my network...the phone dial instead of sending service commands...
Even the blackberry service centre and distributor do not know y the problem happens...
This is the worst mistake blackberry ever made.even the cheapest handphones can use this command. Blackberry cannot??? Why?
Even this post - the blackberry support, cannot do anything after we complaint?
Plz blackberry support center... plz at least do something... im tired of this problem. Plz help us... don't make blackberry name shameful jz because u guys cannot settle this problem?

I never knew Storm 9530 was available for "pay as you go" services. I thought was for monthly billing something. But in my case, I dial #225, and I get a free text message from Verizon, telling me what my monthly bill is.

Yeah but im not using the verizon service.i only use prepaid DIGI service in Malaysia...the only way to check balance is by using the *126# but the phone will dial the number instead...

this seems to be a prob with phones Verizon branded phones. at least in my case; I have a 9550 with a "pay-as -u-go" plan on the Digicel network in Barbados. Same prob as you guys. I'm supposed to see a tech guy in an hr or so who says he can solve my problem; will keep everyone posted! Wish me luck!

Hi. I too had this problem and tried to search around for solutions but couldnt find one. So i fiddled around with the settings and it worked ! I can now check my balance. all you need to do is go to Options
> Network and Connections > Mobile Network > Turn on your data servies and set your network technology to global.
Hope it helps!

pls i need ur assistance on d difficulty in checking my credit balance. pls i need ur assisitance on dis. wenever i try checking it just keep dialing like normal number.

This may have come late but i'm sure it will help those experiencing the same problem in future. You need to key in your digits the normal way then before you press the dial (green) button press alt first. On my Blackberry Tour 9630 for example, for my airtime balance i dial *141# then press the alt key then the dial button. hope this helps you all
