Default Bold and T-Mo; Internet access via Mobile Network (not WiFI)

Please Login to Remove!

I am a beginner at this and would like to know if there is any patch that allows an Unlocked Bold to access internet (data) via the T-Mobile mobile Network (not WiFI). If there is no Wifi present and I attempt to access the Browser I receive error message "This is a Wifi service..." The device will not attempt to access mobile network even though I have all BB services active.
Can not modify Browser configuration, only option is "Hotspot Browser". Anybody????

Tmo does not support the Bold and you will not have a web browser. You will need to downlaod a separate program like Opera Mini. Did mine today. You can send the link to your phone through a SMS msg, then u will need a wireless connection and with your wifi on, you can get to the link and downlaod the program!

or you need to trick it into loading generic browser service books. see: HowTo: Get All Features (WAP Browser, MMS) Working on T-Mobile USA with Unlocked Bold - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com

Default Thanks works GREAT Now.

Thanks for the help. I followed the service book substitution routine and the Bold with T-Mobile is working great.

Follow the link above, and instead of getting the servicebooks from post #65, get them from a later post by the same author, PLTaylor. He has new servicebooks with AIM, which should resolve your problem.
