I recently bought an Unlocked Cingular 8100 hoping that I would be able to use it in Pakistan, I received it just 2 days back. excited as hell
I am presently subscribed to a Service Provider (Ufone GSM
) who does not have a blackberry service, but I have GPRS enabled on their network and was using it before i made the phone swap, but strangly I get a 'gprs' symbol (small caps) and a message 'data connection refused' I even tried to tweak the TCP/VPN details but no luck and the browser is also missing
I went to the Service Provider (Mobilink World - Home
) which does provide Blackberry connections, A visit to the customer service center was depressing to say the least as the reps were saying its not possible to use another providers blackberry device and I would need to purchase their device. They did though accept that they were not experts and have promised to send a blackberry specialist to find out if its at all possible in a day or so. But I sit with a heavy heart, until the specialist comes to check it out.
My question is - If the SIM is acceptable (hence its unlocked) we just need to have GPRS/EDGE enabled and then push emails should work, be it from the official local blackberry provider or be it from an installation of BES Express maybe on my server (though I have read its highly complicated) - Am I right
Why is GPRS / Data connection not working on my present gprs provider is there a technology difference which prevents Data Exchange for the blackberry?
Sorry for bombarding so many questions - but I want to be aware of the entire issue before I get hoodwinked into buying 'their device'
Thanks in advance
