Problem: I bought my Torch 9800 on a Blackberry Retailed outlet and inserted my Old Simcard on it . I enrolled on a BB data plan from my carrier (GLOBE's BB Social ON: pls refer from this link to understand better regarding my Carrier's Data plan ) I can access only on my Facebook,My space and Twitter Apps. All other such as BBM, YM,WM,AOL ang GoogleTalk are not working. For BBM: I tried to add a contact as well as my frend tried to add me but i never received the invitation nor did my friend (my friend also has the same Carrier as mine and enrolled on the same package using his BB Bold 9000 OS 5 with BBM,another friend also tried to send me BBM invite but never received it. When I tried to log-in on my YM app,it says "service not enabled for this handheld".. I tried to go to the Carrier Customer Service to help me with the settings or something and say that my account is already updated to their BB services and I have already the correct settings. I tried to delete and reinstall the apps..did countless hard resets on my phone..but still the same problem..Can Someone help me plz..

I'm sorry to say, but I'm having the EXACT same telecom,...

I'm sorry to say, but I'm having the EXACT same telecom, same plan, same problem. I wonder if the original poster was able to solve his problem. I still can't use my BBM, though the other apps work just fine. :/
