Default BB is not receiving anything at all but it connected to a phone signal

Please Login to Remove!

Hey, recently I've had a problem where my phones signal is extremely patchy outside my home, it didn't bother me until my phone just went dead. I receive no Blackberry messenger pings, emails, texts, incoming calls, email and so on. Nothing, the weird thing is that I'm still connected to my Mobile Network and I can connect to wifi. I can't access the internet even with the internet on.

Strangely, when I take my sim card out the wifi works perfectly fine.

I thought maybe my Blackberry Messenger service had run out because it has been a long time but I have not been notified or told it would run out.

Any help? Thanks!

Sounds like you need to check with T-Mobile about your BB Data plan.

Did it get wet or was it dropped recently?

It's gotten slightly wet a couple of times but nothing serious.

what does "slightly" wet mean?

Some devices have been known to malfunction just from the moisture in a pant pocket.

Ditto on liquid water and moisture....doesn't take much.

But in addition to the above suggestions, besides having your carrier confirm your account is properly configured, you may need a new SIM card.
