Default Cingular Issue

Please Login to Remove!

I am posting for a friend of mine. He's got a Cingular BB 7290. Since last night he told me that he's only getting GSM and not GPRS. Is anyone else having data issues?

I haven't had any issues - I will ask the typical question for people with new BB's though.. Does he have a BlackBerry Data Plan on his Cingular account?

No issues here, try pulling the battery? Has he received coverage at his current location before?

Go to Options > Host Routing Table. Press the scroll wheel and select Register Now. Then take the battery out for 30 seconds.
