Default "Data connection refused"

Please Login to Remove!

I got this when I put my wife's T-Mobile SIM in my old BB, which is network unlocked. The phone works fine.

(1) Am I getting "data connection refused" because I have yet to call Vodafone to release the PIN?

(2) It was setup for work (BES) and I want my wife to use it for internet email - is that going to be a problem?

thanks

Does the TMobile sim have a "Blackberry" Data Plan?

When you were on the BES did you have any restrictions? If so, those restrictions are still there unless you remove the IT Policy.

I removed the IT policy, and that worked fine.

Thanks for the tip re Blackberry data plan - I will call Vodafone to release the PIN and then TMobile to get the plan.

I was wondering what "data connection refused" meant - I guess it's because I don't have the BB plan...

If the phone was only on a BES then you won't need to have the PIN released. If you used it on BES and BIS (personal email) then the PIN could still be connected to your account.

Yes I used it for both.
