Default can't dial neither USSD codes / nor GSM codes on my BB Storm 9530

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all! I have issues with my blackberry Storm 9530 GSM / CDMA. FOR THIS MOMENT , I'm using the gsm Network but, I m not able to dial neither USSD codes / nor GSM codes; for example when I dial *120# SEND to check my balance, or #21# SEND to disable call forwarding, it goes like a call and the TAPE tells me that "NUMBER DOESN'T EXIST" . Can anybody tell me please how I can fix this issue??? Thanks in advance!

Those numbers are usually carrier specific. Are they the correct ones for your carrier?

of course they are! The device supposed to show me a short msg like ""Your balance is..."" instead of dialing the number like I was making call. I don't know if it's because of the CDMA system or how can I fix it?

THANKS!

Some carriers block Short Code SMS messages. If you call them they will enable it on your account. Sprint does this because so many scam billing schemes come this way. Users suddenly get a $10 recurring monthly charge because they "opted in" on one of these schemes without even realizing what was happening, all because they answered a harmless looking text message. Then Sprint fields a bunch of angry calls to customer service, asking what the heck such-and-such charge is for.

If the carrier has short code sms disabled, there is no way to use it other than calling them and having it enabled. Sprint now blocks it by default and you have to specifically call in and request it.

I saw this on another forum and hey it worked strangely enough.

1st - Make an ordinary call to a USSD code WITHOUT the * and # e.g 120
(the annoying lady should say its an invalid number), don't hang up.

2nd - While that call is in progress, enter your preferred USSD code e.g *120# and wahlah,it works
