Default incoming phone not answering

Please Login to Remove!

Hi again, I yet another question I hope is easily answered. I have a 7250 on the Bell network in Ontario. I have the phone working but no data plan. I can call out without an issue. The problem starts after a period of inactivity, the phone will not pickup an incoming call. It seems like a power saver or something.
I have tested turning off the wireless and turning it on and unless I make an outgoing call the phone will not answer incoming calls. The caller gets " the customer you have dialed...." But after I make an out going call it seems I wake something up and it will receive calls again but only for a short period and it goes back into power saver.
Very frustrating.

Have you tried using some other sim card on your BB? Does the problem remain same?

The 7250 does not use a sim card that I'm aware of. I purposely left it out of the holster last night before bed but plugged into the computer to charge. I made sure I could call out and the phone was receiving calls however this morning when I tried to call the BB all I got was a was Bell's greeting that "the customer..."
Must be a sleep setting on the wireless or similar.

According to Bell my phone will continue to do this until I get on a data plan...?
What is happening is the Wireless is basically saying that I'm going to report myself as unavailable after a few hours of non usage. However once I add a 50 dollars a month data plan the wireless will remain on all the time... umm ya.
Anyone hear anything like this before?
