Default No internetconnection possible on my blackberry?

Please Login to Remove!


A few months ago I won a Blackberry Curve 8310. It is not sim-locked.

Today I decided to call my carrier (T-Mobile Netherlands) to ask if a dataconnection was possible on my phone: no.

T-mobile has three internet on mobile options: one for blackberry, two for 'normal' phones. The last two are not possible for blackberry, T-mobile said to me. Also, because I don't have a 'T-Mobile Blackberry' the other dataconnection subscription is also not an option. For that I need the software for T-Mobile Blackberry's. Something T-mobile can't deliver me.

So what are my options in this case? None? Is there maybe an hacked OS for blackberry so I can subscribe for the internetservice for normal phones?

Thanks in advance,

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry Curve 8320)

I'm over in the US but I believe I can help you out. A friend brought a phone from overseas back to the US and wanted to activate it. He too uses T-Mobile. I don't remember exactly what the phone was but it used BlackBerry services and had a PIN but it was not a RIM manufactured device. When he called T-Mobile US to activate it he was told he couldn't have the BlackBerry plan because it was not a BlackBerry. Long story short, he moaned and complained until he convinced them to transfer him to Tier 2 BlackBerry Support. They know exactly what is going on at that level and can get you activated on a BlackBerry Plan. Whether or not its a T-Mobile device does not matter. When they push the T-Mo service books to it, the BlackBerry will know what to do. Hope that helps you out.
