I need help urgently, as I am about to throw my phone through the wall. I recently updated my blackberry software. EVerything worked fine, I has no problem updating. When I put my new sim card in (brand new sim, never been used), my phone registerd me on the verizon wireless network, even though I am livning in south africa with a south african sim card. I can send sms and make phone calls, but that it is! Before I did my sim swop and system update, everythin worked fine on this phone. I cant bbm, use the internet etc etc.
I have tried everything. Tried to resend registerstation message, manually connected to 3G vodacom network and resent registeration msg. I have called my service provider. I have rebooting. I even tryed restoring data from a recent backup i did when my phone worked, and that did nothing. EVERYTHING, and im on my final straw. I just want a working phone.
Please please help me. Oh also, when I go to advanced options to try and see if my phone was locked - its not. Everything says "disabled" next to it, but next to network it says "invalid' or something.
Please help asap!

Go to your Manage Connections screen > Mobile Network > Network Technology.
Make sure that is set to GSM/UMTS.
Now see if you can find your Vodacom mobile network.

I desperately require your assistance. I have just brought back a unlocked 9930 from USA, when I put my South African Vodacom SIM card in I can make calls and send sms's but the phone is not registering on the vodacom data network for BIS even though I have BIS activated on my contract.
After some some research and troubleshooting I realised that there is no settings under HOST ROUTING TABLE and I think this might be the issue , I have tried registering the phone but dont get a response from any vodacom or blackberry server...

Nothing worked for me. Apparently the 9930 doesnt work in South Africa, cos of some radio setting or something. Only the 9900. I had to go back to using my old bold.
If you do manage to get yours working however, please let me know

Vodacom told me, twice! And then I sent my phone into an little indian/chinese repair shop as last resort and they also couldnt do anything. They offered to trade my phone for 9900, but wanted to charge me an extra R2000! So passed on that
