hello,

I am trying to get my BlackBerry to work. The bottom line is that I had a 7290, which died (broken screen), got a new one off eBay, and created a new account on BIS. My BIS (Orange France) did not complain about the PIN/IMEI being already used.

But - I have no browser icon, I can't send mail, and I don't receive. Updating the service book has no effect. Orange is clueless.

The phone is branded Orange, and seemingly (except for the theme) identical to my previous one.

Since I used to use my 7290 happily I am certain that my BlackBerry data plan is in place and usable.

I noticed I have 3 entris in the Host Routing Table, which I can register with. But it does not seem change anything.

What else can I check/test? What can I have Orange do? Thanks!

Is there an IT Policy on the device maybe? Look in Options >Security Options >General Settings. Scroll to the bottom is there any reference to an IT policy?

When you look in Service Books, do you see the entries for your email...?

Can you receive a PIN message?

Have you pulled the battery to allow the device to reboot?

Well here is a good start....

Check Options >> Advanced Options >> Host Routing Table

and select Register Now....

Resend the service books and do a hard reboot (pull battery for 30 sec)

If all of that does not work you might need to call your service provider and make sure you are registered as having a data plan for that BB

Default problem resolved

Thank you all for your responses!

After trying the various proposed solution I did not unfortunately resolve the problem.

Instead, I worked my way through the various levels of tech support of my operator, who, once a specialist was assigned to this problem, has the issue resolved. It took a cumulative 8 hours on the phone with various experiments, and then suddenly the issue was resolved.

The only explanation was "there was a bug, we know not where or why, but now it seems to be working... so let's stop here." As "just" a consumer, that's fine for me.

Regards,
L. Kremkow

Glad you are back up but sorry that it took 8 hours to do so.... The key thing is that you are back up!
