Excellent. Sounds like your BIS plan had never provisioned to your account.

Good luck.

You guys that are on ATT, have any of you noticed when you use streaming Apps, like Flycast, Slacker or Pandora you drop down to edge? Usually i hold full EDGE well, but when i stream is drops to edge and i lose all data capability, but yet the Apps stream fine. I cannot do sms, bbm, anything but make calls. If i close the App and turn my network connection off and back on, it will go back to EDGE, no problem. Of course, when i am on Wifi, this does not happen.

Anyone have any suggestions?

This is really my only issue with this phone on ATT. Besides MMS, but i don't wish to try and fix that, my browser works fine with my current service books and i don't want to risk losing my browser after every reboot.

I have only tried 5.0.0.517 or hybrids based of that OS. Currently i use .517 with the full Java files from .643.

I have a 9550, btw.

Every time I restart the device I get a 'Registration' email saying I've been registered on the mobile network. Not critical, but annoying.

Tony, I've never experienced that. If everything is working well for you, I'd ignore them. At least you know your connected to your network.

Yes, that was my experience, as well. It's discussed here in this thread a couple times, but there's nothing you can do (or that I could do) because of the type of data stream those apps are attempting to access.

TRUE. I'd hate to tweak something to get rid of the message then hose something else.

If it 'aint broke...

Thanks amigo.

I would suggest that you inquire of that friend and have him explain specifically how he has done this!

No. Neither 9550 nor the 9520 will work on Tmobile's 3G network. You'll get EDGE if you follow the directions in the initial post in this thread, and you'll have WiFi.

You can upgrade the OS (you calll it "reflashing") if you want, that's up to you.

Tweaking, yea. Again, read the initial post in this thread.

Some streaming media apps (Pandora, for one) won't work. I don't know what software Tmobile has that you speak of, so I can't comment on that.

Default Storm 2 Saga .. Cont.

1. Can you get UTMS (3G) coverage in the states with the Storm 2?
2. I followed the directions but can not get the IMEI to register with att. Can I do that or does a store/customer service need to accommodate that request?

I believe this lack of registration is causing me to lack the ability to register on the network, download service books and use data services. Voice and Texting Does work.

3. Is it possible to have the phone configured such that it "dual boots" between carriers? If I can us the memory card as a storage for that data and service books?

4. Is it possible to "manually" enter service book data?

Any luck with this yet? I know it has taken me 20 attempts before the IMEI registration worked.

3. Is it possible to have the phone configured such that it "dual boots" between carriers? If I can us the memory card as a storage for that data and service books?
No.

4. Is it possible to "manually" enter service book data?
Yes, that is what THIS process in the initial post does.

What carrier are you on?

Look at your Options > Advanced > Service Books.

Do you see an entry for MMS Client and MMS Transport?
