Please Login to Remove!

try going to Mobile options>mobile network then adjust the network technology to GSM/UMTS
later if you have activation required written on ur home screen this can be removed also

Thanks Godzilla for your reply. Yes I have gotten rid of the activation required message and done with that. I also changed the network tech to GSM/UMTS however, I still can not get network connection even though I had requested the blackberry activation from STC. I don't really know what else could be done. I even called up STC again to double check if the bb service is activated and was told it is. Might need some time to kick in???

It's one of the top rated sellers on ebay (ABE-123) and has been very supportive so far.

It's working finally

It was STC that delayed activating the service as it appeared that they had a network problem yesterday.

Now I feel content with my Storm 9550 that it is fully functional

I want to thank you Godzilla and Alizawi for your support and helpfull feed backs. I appreciate it.
