I am in Athens, Greece.
Blackberry service is not supported from the Greek Mobile providers yet!
Allthough the service is working through roaming if you have a US or UK provider.
I have a 7230 device from Vodafone UK, SIM unlocked, with OS 4.0
when I use the Vodafone UK SIM everything is OK.
it roams with Vodafone GR and it works fine, receives mails fine and I have a "GPRS" signal
when I use the Vodafone GR SIM I get the "gprs" signal and a "Data Connection Refused" warning
and ofcourse I don't receive mails.
make sense though that Vodafone GR doesn't support Blackberry
but the other thing is that I don't have internet tcp too.
I can't use it with Webviewer or Verichat
allthough the GPRS internet connection in the Vodafone GR SIM is activated and working..
I have set the APN information that Vodafone GR uses but nothing happens..
I even set a Cosmote SIM (other Greek Provider) GPRS internet enabled etc.
with the APN information, but nothing changed.
from the programs I use I get cannot connect or DNS problems etc.
what seems is the problem?
because the 2 Greek SIMs I tried are full GPRS enabled and they are tested with other devices and they are working!! (other mobile phones connected with notebook and Vodafone GPRS pc card!!)
the OS 4 of Vodafone UK I think is supposed to support TCP stack..
so why the internet applications are not working?
is there something else that I have to check?
or if the blackberry device warn about the "data connection refused", drop all the connections????
thanx a lot!!
