I just bought an unlocked Curve on e-bay which is branded by AT&T but I plan to use on a T-Mobile network. I am having some trouble setting up all of the features.
First, I can receive and make calls and the phone recognizes that I am on t-mobile's network, but it says that I am roaming in the "Services Status".
Second, it recognizes my e-mail address and says it has been set up successfully but I cannot send or receive messages on it.
Third,I am unable to send text messages due to an error "uncaught exception: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException". However, I can receive texts.
Lastly, I am unable to activate the GPS feature. While I can get to the screen where I download it from (ota.telenav.com/ota/at), the download always fails. The error reads "907 Invalid COD HTTP Error 502: Bad Gateway"
I have only added the unlimited blackberry feature from t-mobile today and suspect that it might take some time to activate.
Any help with these issues is greatly appreciated.
An old SIM card can indeed throw a monkey wrench into the works. When I was trying to get my Curve working on T-Mobile, long before TMo released the Curve themselves, the only way to get a working web browser was to use the OS from the British carrier O2. But even with the new OS properly installed I had no joy. Turns out my SIM card was too old (from when the 7230 was the latest hotness in the BB world) and needed to be replaced. Once I did that my Browsers, both the WAP and standard Blackberry ones, showed up instantly.
