Default UMA question

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

So I used to get cell reception where I live through my wireless on my old blackberry. Now, with the new one, I cant seem to get it to pick up the wireless. I used to close all my connections, then restore them to get the phone to recognize it, but the new one doesnt. Any ideas?

thanks!

Your T-Mobile plan may not have the service option. It must be activated on the BB by them.

Just call the carrier and ask. T-Mobile does charge for the use if for calls so they do allow it. Data would be free if you have an unlimited plan.

The Pre-shared key is the security key/number that allows you to use the router.

Have similar, caused by not having BB locked to network. Used Phones 4 U as best upgrade deal. The two BBs supplied are unlocked so no UMA software.
