Default Help me understand

I dont understand. Once you unlock a blackberry is it not just a cool phone that can be used only as a phone on any gsm network.

Should you be able to use every feature of the phone without changing any settings just because you unlocked it?

Is no one having these issues of wanting to use a unlocked blackberry from a diffrent provider as a blackberry on your provider? I guess it only makes sence to people on a fido plan that have $40 a month unlimited minutes and no blackberries phones to choose from

Does anyone know where the
DNS setting is or the WAP APN, or the regular APN settings are located in the phone

flyguyry, welcome to the BBF.

Unlocking a BB simply unlocks the carrier on which it can be used. This does NOT unlock it's network capabilities. GSM devices must still be used on GSM networks, (i.e. TMo, AT&T, Rogers). CDMA devices must still be used on a CDMA Network (Sprint and Verizon).

Your APN is set at Options > Advanced > TCP.

Just cause the phone was unlocked you would still have to change data setting to your provider. And why people don't make a new post about setting the bbfaq has a lot listed and you can def even search the net for the info. Hope this help
