It's a quite complicated process to make the 9850 work on Tmobile, but can be done.

Re: unlocked verizon blackberry torch 9850 on tmobile

Hi I saw that you got your internet to work on your unlocked blackberry torch 9850, I just got the same exact phone, I can text and make phone calls ebverything is fine, I just can't access internet or any apps or bbm. It's been such a complicated process with tmobile no one can give me the right way to fix this. How were you able to get this done, Is it difficult?

if you don't see the loader directory, then you have not installed the OS to your PC.

 

Please keep this issue to one thread,. You have THREE going, one is enough. Thanks.

no, you need to download an operating system suitable for your BlackBerry. Downloaded it from the internet as directed above.
