Ok, so here's the problem. I live in Germany and have a BB data plan for my pearl through T-Mobile Deutschland. I recently purchased an unlocked 8310 from Ebay in the US figuring I should be able to pop the SIM card in and be good to go. Unfortunately, I get a lower cased "edge" and am unable to access the internet nor am I able to get push email. I had the same issue when I tried to put the data plan SIM into my wifes unlocked pearl. I was getting the "data connection refused" in that case. If I have a SIM with BB data plan, shouldnt it work in any unlocked phone or is there something else I need to do? I tried resending the service books to no avail. Are the data plans tied to particular PIN or phone or should it work regardless of the phone? Please help cause I would hate to have purchased this curve for no reason. Thanks.
