I JUST RECEIVED THIS MESSAGE FROM MY CARRIER,
"In reference with your email, we have checked the complain references 7848409 and
7848410 and the feedback we received was that no abnormality found in
terms of your connection."
FROM THEIR SIDE IT ALL LOOKS FINE,,,,FROM MY SIDE I HAVE TWO UNWORKING 9930’S BIS’S

Any 9930 Expert that can answer to my problem? :-),or at least tell me why its not working(bis not working),,,,,,
What I came up with is that unlocked 9930 lacks the USSD option which makes it unusable in Malaysia...To restore USSD I have to lock the phone to the local mobile company spec's, no?

I came to the conclusion that all xx30 & xx50 Blackberry's DONT support USSD which is required in countries like Malaysia to be able to activate SIM card, Activate BIS and have an Actual BIS service....
SELF NOTE: make a list of countries that use USSD and bring to these countries a USSD Blackberry...
USSD: Unstructured Supplementary Service Data

IF ANYONE IS STILL FOLLOWING MY CASE, HERE IS AN UPDATE,
-14th of June, I had no BIS service on two 9930's upon landing in Malaysia...One of the 9930's BIS service did work for few days over wi-fi only, then the service went dead.
-27th of June my BIS service is back on one 9930 without me doing anything special, still in Malaysia, the 9930 that is working now is actually the one that didn't work from day one in Malaysia....
My carrier(etisalat) give up a while back and couldn't help me, blaming Malaysian carriers.....
I still don't understand why the service came back on one phone and skipped the other...........

I'm currently facing the same problem with my unlocked 9850. The difference is that I was never able to connect to the BIS from my carrier.
Can I know which local telco you were using the BIS from? Because I might need to switch carrier and all the representatives here are very well ill-informed.
Also, were you able to solve this issue at all?
Looking forward to your reply. Thanks.

Thanks for the reply Heraiz.
Sorry I forgot to mention that I am from Malaysia actually. I'm currently with Celcom and it seems to have the BIS issues with CDMA+GSM BBs too. I was thinking of porting to other carriers but since you've mentioned both alternatives, I guess it wouldnt solve the issue I'm facing as well.
Is your carrier in the UAE proviiding GSM based network or CDMA? If its GSM then my guess is that our local providers are just too unknowleadgable and couldnt care less about solving these unique issues.
