Yes. This guide was written for OS versions below 7.

This comes the closest to the issue I've run into, with a 9900 from 2011:
purchased 9900 unlocked, but not from a carrier
went to use it on T-Mobile, worked fine but no Wi-Fi calling
Spoke to T-Mobile, who said to update it to 7.1 for Wi-Fi calling. Worked fine on cellular band. But couldn't load OS 7.1. Then found your other post, John, mentioning deleting the vendor file on the PC.

That let me load the 7.1. But it still doesn't permit voice calls on Wi-Fi - the 9900 OS 7.1 just does data on Wi-Fi.

Pressing ALT + CAPS + H shows Vendor ID = 612
But this isn't T-Mobile's Vendor ID.

I'll try to see if the last comment you made will let me change the Vendor ID, but I've heard that this can't be done with the newer OS versions.

Any suggestions for easier way of changing the 612 Vendor ID to T-Mobile's Vendor ID?

Thanks.

You will need to follow the instructions for enabling UMA. However, the certificates are no longer available for download which makes it tough to enable UMA/WiFi Calling.

1. Download the certificates for TMobile from here: (use the links in the second post)

http://www.port3101.org/port-3101-be...tificates.html

2. Now you'll need to unlock your engineering screen. To do this click alt + rt shift + H on your keyboard to get to the "Help Me" screen and fill in the info from that screen into the key generator at the site below. Don't back out of this Help Me screen until you enter the code and get the new menus. If you back out you'll get different uptime and you'll have to re-enter the info and get a new code:

You'll need the PIN, App Version including the (xxx), and the uptime without the "secs". Enter that info and choose the amount of time you'd like to keep the screen available.

Zibri's Blog: Hidden things are usually the best

Once you get the code, simply type it on that same screen. Use alt when typing numbers and don't use caps with letters. You won't see anything being typed as you enter it. Once the code is accepted you'll see a new menu list. If not, go back and make sure you are entering all the info correct and try again.

3. Once the new menu appears, click on "Mobile Network Engineering Screens"

4. Click on "Utilities"

5. Click on "Session Manager"

6. Press the menu key (left of trackpad) and select "UMA Options"

7. Press the menu key and select "New"

8. Enter the following:

Display Name: T-Mobile
Operator Name: T-Mobile

9. UNCHECK "Use default UNC address"

10. At "Provisioning UNC address:" enter: punc.t-mobileuncs.com

Leave Provisioning UNC port: 14001 as is.

11. UNCHECK "Use default SEGW address"

12. At "Provisioning SEGW address:" enter: psgw.t-mobilesgws.com

13. Under "SEGW certificate" choose the TMobile Engineering certificate downloaded in the Step 1.

14. Under UMA protocol version: use "UMA v. 1.0.3"

15. Save your settings.

Reboot the device. UMA should now be enabled!

It will never function on a 9850.

No. The service books are no longer publicly available for you to sideload onto your device, and the focus for all providers is on moving towards generic data plans that the BB10 devices and all other smartphones can use. You will expend much greater effort trying to get a 9850 to work than you will to sell it and get a T-Mobile approved device.
