Default Nightmare with Unlocked Sprint Tour overseas: No Browser, no BB services.

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all,
I've read through the posts and searched to no luck...ongoing nightmare with this phone...
I am currently working in Thailand, ordered a new Sprint Tour from Ebay...unlocked it with a code, and signed up for the major carrier here AIS (which hasn't officially released the Tour but offers full BB services).
The calling works but the Browser and BB messenger and all other BB services do not work.
Apparently only unlocked SPRINT Tours have this problem in Thailand... can anyone help with this? asking around, the unlockers here are waiting for some kind of software to be released next month that will solve this issue, and many are sitting on tons of useless, returned Sprint Tours until this comes. I heard something about rerouting my service books to the carrier? is that a solution and how do i do that?
Please help. I've never been this aggravated by a phone before.

You should have done your homework before you bought the Tour. Sorry this happened.
