| | Need help with Ebay 8700
Please Login to Remove!
I'm hoping someone can help me out here. I currently have a Blackberry 7290 with Rogers that's on it's last legs. So I picked up an unlocked Cingular/AT&T 8700 from Ebay. The device arrived today and from what I can see it is indeed unlocked with no IT Policy in place. Here is my problem though... I can't seem to get it to find the network.... It always says 'No Service'. If I go into Mobile Network it shows as set to * None *. If I look at My Preferred Network List it shows Rogers Wireless in the #1 position, but I can't seem to get it to come online (the sim card from my 7290 has been inserted into the 8700 of course).
Does anyone have any suggestions or is this just a bum unit? Also, If and when I can get this to see the network, do I need to log into my Rogers homepage and update my device PIN and IMEI? I tried doing this once and the page came back saying 'Info provided is not valid for this provider'. So now I'm really confused.
Any help would be greatly appreciated at this point!
