Can not get the general GPRS on my Blacberry Bold 9700...!?!

[ Edited ]

Hi!

My name is Ashish Verma, Right now I am living in Pune, India. I have recently purchased a Blackberry Bold 9700 mobile, I was having an Bharti Airtel (Mobile Service Provider in India) SIM card already, which I was using with my previous phone. The problem is that I am trying to activate the general GPRS service (not the Blackberry services) on my phone, but I am unable to get the settings from the Airtel for activating it, in-fact they say that your handset is not compatible for that..! I am very much deceived because of that, I thought I have purchased on of the best mobile set and service available, but it doesn't seems. Even I tried to activate the plan of internet and got the message after that "You have activated the plan", but still I am unable to access the service..! In-face I received a message after some time from Airtel saying "Your phone is not provisionable"..! I do not understand, how a advanced smart phone like Blackberry which has everything inside it, can be incompatible for a simple service like GPRS..!? Please let me know what I can do..! Thank you.

Airtel just wants to drain you out of money. Either have Airtel 899 plan to get internet on your Blackberry, or throw your Blackberry and buy some other cheap Smartphone to get a Rs.100 -unlimited internet plan from Airtel. Or better still change your service provider. You can t have Airtel and Blackbeey both to browse the internet on phone.

 

Airtel sucks, I am waiting for the day when Number Poratability is implemented across India, then these people will be begging to the customers.

Ashish blackberry handsets are not only handsets instead it is a technology
with its server of its own.Blackberry technology is over n above GPRS service provided by ur carrier.It is the mistake of operator who has educated you about the same.Plans which allow full web surfing are pretty expensive.

If we choose a smartphone then we must have a better GPRS plan for our mobile instead of choosing general GPRS. Why don't you a better 3G plan for your blackberry smartphone. Recently Tata Docomo planned to launch unlimited voice and GPRS plan for BlackBerry Z10. So you can go with this service provider or you change your Blackberry Bold 9700 to Blackberry Z10 which comes with huge array of features as compaire to blackberry bold 9700. If the upcoming Docomo GPRS plan works well on your mobile phone then it is nothing to say otherwise from my point of view you just change your handset.
