Default help with unlocked tmobile - Curve

Please Login to Remove!

I just purchased a Curve for use on tmobile. I've read through these forums, and have followed the instructions on most of the threads i've seen. I've downloaded the o2 OS. I'm not having the problem most are, because I can see the Tzones Icon. However, I can't use the browser and am getting a web server WAP error. Also, my emails seem to send perfectly, but i'm not receiving new emails.

Any thoughts of what i'm doing wrong or what can help me solve this?
Thank you!!

Resend your service books.

Thank you.
just delete ur service books by going to options, advance options, service books and dlete one by one. then take your battery out and restart your phone. go to tmobile.com and login with your number,then go to blackberry setup on the right hand of the page and then go to service books and send your service books.

Did you totally erase your handheld using wipe and install O2? Your problem sounds exactly like my Curve's initially, the only way I was able to get the browser icon was to wipe it and install the O2 os. the T-zones browser icon is useless and sending service books isnt gonna fix this.

Default wipe and install?

By downloading and installing the OS, is that enough? Do I need to "totally" wipe out the os on the phone? If so, how do I do that? thanks

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:

APN: wap.voicestream.com
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.

Default Wipe

How do you do a complete wipe out before re-installing the OS? Thanks.
