I am using my Curve on T-Mobile - and had the same experience dhendricks had. I went through all the standard tricks to get T-Mobile working properly, including deleting all the service books, going to my.t-mobile.com and resending them, etc. Still had problems.
In the end, I did a few things, and the phone now works perfectly. Not sure which of these steps really did the trick, however, as I didn't have the patience for true "scientific method" (only changing one variable at a time and seeing what the outcome was before changing another variable)... Anyway, here's what I did in the end:
- Did a complete device wipe
- Installed the O2 OS on my pc
- deleted the vendor.alx file on the pc
- plugged the Curve into the pc, and let desktop manager install the O2 OS on the blackberry
- checked the service books - believe there was only one at that point - and I deleted it
- went to my.t-mobile.com and resent the service books -- hmmm -- that didn't seem to do it! so I got inspired, DELETED the email accounts from my.t-mobile.com and re-added them to the website, and THEN resent the service books, and THIS time not only the email accounts came over, but both browser icons (Internet and T-Zones) appeared on the Curve
At this point, I had working email, and working "normal" HTML web browsing. But when I tried to open the T-Zones browser and go to the T-Zones home page, I continued to see an "unknown error" from the T-Zones gateway.
Curious, I dug through the Curve some more, and noticed that the APN was still, somehow, set to point to Cingular. Perhaps that had been a byproduct of the backup/restore process that the Desktop Manager performed. So - I manually replaced the APN info with the info that's appropriate for T-Mobile BIS:
username and password: -blank- (really blank - nothing in these fields)
T-Zones still didn't work right after that, but that's perhaps because I hadn't yet registered with the site?
Anyway - I noticed, about a couple of hours later, that T-Zones was now working just fine, as well as all the email accounts and regular Internet browser. The Curve is now fully configured to work properly with T-Zones BIS, and it's an absolute pleasure.
