Default Unable to get GPRS connection on 8707

Please Login to Remove!

I've got a stack of faulty O2 8707's on my desk which seem to have problems connecting to GPRS, they are stuck on GSM. They attempt to get a GPRS connection and it goes "gprs" then "GPRS" but then reverts to "GSM" until the device is restarted and the process repeats. It definately a device problem as if I put the SIM in a different BB it works fine.

Is there any fix for this or should I just bin 'em?

Thanks,
Matt

Hi, thanks for the reply. I've checked the firmware from the list and I already have the latest on the devices. From about:-

Blackberry 8707
Wireless Handheld (3G)
v4.1.0.378 (Platform 3.2.0.9)

Any more ideas?

Perhaps try one from a different carrier. Looks like the 8707 has 4.2 software...

BlackBerry 8707 / Pkg:4.2.1.148, App:4.2.1.94, Plt:3.3.0.21 (PROXIMUS)

Unfortunately the Proximus download only offers 4.2 for the 8707v and i've got 8707g's. Any idea where I can get the 4.2 for the 8707g or if it even exists?

Cheers!
