You won't be able to register on your phone with ATT until you get through these steps.

Then you have not installed the OS to your PC. Doing so will create the "shared" folder.

I think that you are right. I think that Social Scope was having an adverse effect as that had automatic refresh in the settings. Once I disabled SS, my EDGE signal has become much more stable.

As an aside with the YouMail app, I set it to check for new messages every 75 minutes and have YouMail send me an email when I have a new VM. The app must monitor the email, b/c my app alerts me to a new message almost instantaneously after I receive an email. Kinda cool!

Scroll to the TOP of this page, and click on the link "General 9500 Series Discussion", top of that page, you'll see the Sticky Note Threads for this 9500 section.

Me too. Getting really frustrating. I want to throw a cinderblock through Verizon's window.

lol, considering the 9530/9550 devices were not designed to work on ATT, that wouldn't be very bright. :(

Follow the directions in the tutorial and register the device/send service books ON the PC. A link is provided in step #7.

Good luck.

I have a 9530 and a 9550 for development testing. I got the 9530 on 4.7 working on ATT in the past using the instructions here, but now that 5.0 is out, neither the 9530 or 9550 are working for me using the same instructions.

Has anybody successfully gotten a 9530 or 9550 working with ATT and full browser functionality?

Yes, I have used the exact same process on the 9530, with OS 5.0.0.323 and .328 to work, as well as the 9550.

It will work.

Wow! I never though I would get it to work, but I was inspired by success stories so I tried again. the only think different is that this time, I had a few beers in mexxx8230; and it worked! I now have a 9550 on att with browser functionality. Go figure.

Amazing with beer and patience can do.

I have the storm 2 (9550) fully working on att. I used a different method of unlocking. I can provide the PDF file for those that can't get this to work the first time...(send me a message)

My only question is, when the phone runs out of battery, or the battery is pulled out - the att service books are reduced from 31 to 14, and the browser is unavailable. all the other data (email, mms, sms, pandora, etc..) still work, just no browser until i resync w/ dm and reinsert all service books. Is there any way around that, so when the battery dies, or is pulled out the service books are still available?

i cant even register on the link (step 7) u gave me.. it returns an error message when i "create a new account"... says "your account is not accessible by HTML browser. please use your device and try again".

now, the browser disappears before i could even register it on my phone. Please tell me how i could register on a PC.

i even called at&t to send me the service books, but same end result: browser disappears.

I would need to look at your instructions to see what you might have left out.

rockstar, scroll up and read. It won't work.
Unlocked Storm on AT&T or T-Mobile

Almost ANY streaming media app kills it. It has to do with the TCP data those apps use rather the BIS.

roy, you don't need to create a new BIS account, if you already have one. After load the service books from DM, you must THEN send them again from the BIS login. Just as the instructions detail.
