I have a T-Mo 8700g. I was using it with BES. I recently got an 8800 and gave the 8700g to my wife. I signed up my wife for the BB Unlimited data plan, or whatever they call it. She loves it.
When I gave it to her, I wiped the device (wrong password 10 times) and upgraded to the latest version of the T-Mo provisioned OS. Upgrade went off without a hitch (I thought).
I set up her email on BIS (she has a yahoo pop mail account). That is working great!
Problem is, the browser is missing. The WAP browser is there and T-Mo WAP sites work, but the BB Browser and the internet browser are not. I cannot get to internet sites (obviously).
Searching the forums, I "re-registered" the device by selecting that option in the handhelp Tools->Advanced->Routing Table->Register Now menu.
I also logged into the T-Mo BIS Site and "resent the service books".
Still no joy.
When I look at the installed applications in the BB Desktop, I see that the browser application is checked but greyed out. I cannot change the check box to unchecked (to uninstall and reinstall).
I have never see this before, and I am stuck. Any ideas.
Thanks in advance.
