Question Unlocked Verizon 9550 & General questions

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, everyone!

I have been playing with my unlocked Verizon 9550 on AT&T for several days, but I'm still confused with some problems on the device.

Currently, I dont have a BB personal service, only regular unlimited data plan. There is only "Hotspot browser" which is WIFI only broswer on this device. Is it because I haven't done the registration with PIN & IMEI Number on AT&T?

How can I have that "Internet browser" showed and activated on my storm 2 without BB personal service?

I'll really appreciate your help!

You must have blackberry data service to use the blackberry or RIM data applications. That's the bottom line. If you want to use the blackberry browser, email, blackberry messenger, and so forth, contact your carrier and purchase the blackberry data plan.

You can try to download Opera Mini and see if you can get that configured on the generic data plan. Some do, some don't as it seems to be a poor workaround for the BB browser.

Check our FAQ for two articles. One being "What do you need a data plan for" and the other "How to use a BB with a generic data plan".
