I bought a cell phone at a HamFest that had an IT profile on it that disabled the phone service. I updated the OS to the latest I found on BlackBerry's web site after wiping the device. Everything works fine.
I live out in the middle of nowhere, so I am used to the cell phone losing signal when I am at home. However, on my other phones, as soon as a signal was available, the phone would connect. This BlackBerry doesn't do that. If I drive into the city, it continues to say "No Signal". To get it to lock on to the signal, I have to turn Wireless Off and then back on. That just doesn't seem right.
Oh, BTW - this is a Cingular phone with an AT&T sim card.
