The indicator that the phone is properly connected in my situation is
the "gprs" message SHOULD turn to all capital letters - "GPRS" - when it is properly commissioned and attached to the Blackberry system etc..
I HAVE had it shown the capitals GPRS several times,
But it always ends up dropping off and reverting back to the 'normal' / non Blackberry 'gprs' status..
This has been driving me crazy all week,
No amount of reboots and service book sending has brought this phone back to life..
There was half a morning when it was working, but its never worked since..
Of course the O2 operators have no idea about Blackberrys and are just reading from trouble shooting scripts - and refuse to connect me directly with a tech to speak to..
After about 6 epic calls on the subject the final word is - "it must be your hand set..."
I will go to the store (I think the manager has a BB) and see if my sim card will pick up the RIGHT GPRS signal and hold it - in HIS phone..
Anyone been there done that - got the t-shirt..?
I am in N10 London, UK - lots of hills around here...
Any advice? This has a grim start for me...
