Yesterday inexplicably all the applications on my 8700c that required WAP connections (Opera Mini, BBToday, BBWeather, Ramble) were non-functional.
The problem was isolated to Cingular when I learned that a family member with another 8700c on the same Cingular account was also experiencing the same symptoms. After 3 lengthy Technical Support sessions with Cingular (2 on the phone including one escalated to RIM, and one online chat) we exhausted a tiresome list of "fixes" without results.
We checked APN settings, each application's setup, several reboots, deleted and added all service books, re-registered the host routing table, etc. nothing worked. As a last resort I even completely wiped the data and OS -- zippo. Frustrated, we hung it up for the day.
Shortly after midnite EDT as mysteriously as the things ceased working, they began to function normally on both BB's.
The point of this post is to alert members that despite our best efforts, often times the solutions are out of our control. If you experience similar issues, you may wish to give things a day or two before running the entire troubleshooting gauntlet. If nothing else, perhaps you may be saved a day of utter frustration.
