Default Data not working, unlocked 9530

Please Login to Remove!

Hello Blackberry Gods,

I am having trouble getting internet to work on my new UNLOCKED 9530. I just recently upgraded from a Curve 8300. I popped in my SIM to the 9530, set it up and everything seems fine, i connect to network, I get "edge". I did a work-around to get blackberry browser on, problem comes when trying to use anything internet based. It seems to work on and off. For example, I will open BB browser and try to load google.com, it will sit on REQUESTING for about a minute or two and then it will begin to transmit data (data arrows on top corner), it will do this for about 5 seconds and then stop for another minute or two, so pages like google will take up to ten minutes to load. This happens with any program (Nimbuzz, Opera Mini, Shangmail, etc). I did not have this problem with the Curve, I can just pop it in, and internet works like a charm. I even matched the settings from the Curve to the Storm and no luck. Is there anything you think I'm missing, some special setting that applies to storm and not curve?

Here is some phone info:
Blackberry Storm 9530 (unlocked)
OS: v4.7.0.148 (Platform 4.0.0.181)
I tried upgrading to 5.0 but the apploader does not detect the new OS, just shows me 3rd party apps. I followed step by step instructions on another thread here.

P.S. I am in Costa Rica, I dont have BIS or BES (too expensive here), I just have regular unlimited internet with the phone company here.

You need a BLACKBERRY data plan.

You also need the proper service books. If your carrier supports the device, then get the BB data plan as said above and they will send you the correct service books. If you want RIM based services, then you have to have the BB data plan.

Check our FAQ for info on why you need it and what you can and cannot do with a generic plan.

If not then, look at the yellow sticky at the top of the 9500 section for using the 9530 on ATT and TMO. Might work for you, might not.

Thanks for your replies. I got it to work. I completely wiped the phone and installed fresh with 5.0. Its not perfect, but it works 95% of the time. I dont NEED a blackberry data plan, I installed service books with the anworm service book, and I got push email with shangmail. Now if I could only get the service books to be able to use messengers (MSN, Yahoo, Google Talk, etc).

Once again, thank for the replies.
