Unlocked tour 9630 cannot connect to internet

Recently purchased an unlocked verizon bb 9630 tour. I have connected it to my verizon account and I have a data plan, but i cannot connect to the internet. There isnt even a browser icon on the phone. How do I set up the network? Verizon doesnt let you have a bb unless you pay for a data plan, it would be pointless to have it without internet working!

Re: Unlocked tour 9630 cannot connect to internet

Hi and Welcome to the Community!!

I suggest the following steps, in order, even if they seem redundant to what you have already tried (steps 2 and 3each should result in a message coming to your BB...please wait for that before proceeding to the next step...if any step does not complete as written, then STOP and fall out to the end):


1) Register with VZW

  • Dial *228 and select Option 1
  • Dial *228 again, this time selecting Option 2 (you should actually do this Option 2 monthly)

2) Register HRT

  • KB00510 How to register a BlackBerry smartphone with the wireless network
  • Please wait for one "registration" message to arrive to your Messages app

3) Resend Service Books

  • KB02830 Send the service books for the BlackBerry Internet Service
  • Please wait for "Activation" Messages, one per already configured email account, to arrive in your Messages. If you have no already configured email accounts, please wait 1 hour.

4) Batt Pull Reboot

  • Anytime random strange behavior or sluggishness creeps in, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot -- ~5 minutes. See if things have returned to good operation. Like all computing devices, BB's suffer from memory leaks and such...with a hard reboot being the best cure.

Hopefully that will get things going again for you! If not, then you will need to work with VZW...I do not know if VZW natively supports the 9630 or not. If they do not, then getting full BB-level services to work will be quite challenging. All BB-level services are a matter of having the proper Service Books on the BB. But, the carrier systems typically only deliver the SBs for those specific BB models that they directly support...so, if VZW does not natively support the 9630, then their system won't push down the necessary SBs. But, again, you need to work with them to be sure.


Good luck!
