I bought an unlock 9700 and no matter which provider I take it to I cannot get blackberry service activated on my phone. I get only "edge" never "EDGE".  Can anyone provide an answer. Thanks.

Re: Data


Do you know if you have a valid "Blackberry" data plan? This would be required to access the BIS network and allow you to setup personal email, use BBM and the like.

A generic data plan will not suffice.

If you are unsure, feel free to contact your carrier and make sure.
