Hello All. Long time reader, not a big poster, but i did want to talk about this as i just moved my storm over to AT&T
i'd like someone to chime in if they see any problems or something i may be missing. i didn't have to do many of those steps to get my storm to work on AT&T. i did get it unlocked, and i had to change the number that appeared on the screen, as well as go into mobile network options and change it to GSM. once i did that, i rebooted the phone and it came up capital EDGE.
now, i don't have the usb cable so i couldnt' do the service book swap, so i thought i was SOL. i assume (may be wrong) that the service books is what gives you browser and data capabilities. i checked my service books and i saw that provisioning showed up, so i thought "well at least i can setup BES". so i had my email reprovisioned and activated it. well as part of the email reprovisioning, apparently our email provider (usa.net) downloads EVERYTHING because i got my browser working, some additional code modules, my BB messenger contacts, as well as the standard email/cal/address book.
so here i am right now installing FB and all these other apps on this storm and it seems it's 100% functioning w/out swapping service books.
am i missing something? has this happened to anyone else or does this make sense or am i lucky that my email provider provisioned me with the proper service books? just wondering what some of you pro's that understand this more have to say about it. Thanks!
