Redirector has dies and gone the way of lost electrons. RIM doesn't support it any longer and the latest versions of DM do not have it as an option.

Do you have BB data plan? You need that to have any attempt at working. Don't know if having Metro has any bearing or not, but it could.

IMHO, it never was a good idea to use it.

If your friend has a BlackBerry on Verizon, they most assuredly have a BlackBerry Data Plan.

Verizon has ALWAYS required a data plan for BlackBerry devices.

You need to talk to MetroPCS about getting the data working on Metro.

You can't change the PIN.

Forget the BlackBerry Redirector
Forget changing the PIN

CALL METRO PCS
