Default Carrier Has not Changed after OS Installation/Update

Please Login to Remove!

I downloaded a Sprint 4.5.0.311 OS(I deleted the Vendor xml file) and loaded it on my Verizon BB8830.But after the update process,the carrier still remained the same(its showing verizon wireless if turned on).What could be the cause/problem?

You cannot change the splash screen. It will always show Verizon when it boots up.

And by the way my BB has a problem.BIS has stoped working after activation.I've activated BIS 3 times but the browser Icon did not appear on home screen,my Device didn't receive service books(I wiped it),tried battery pulls and called service provider to send service books but the device didn't receive them although data services is on.How can I solve this problem?My handheld is useless minus internet.!!!

I would check with your carrier to verify your BlackBerry data plan didn't get dropped off of your account.

Actually I think the device has the problem because I used the same simcard I use(by then the BIS had not expired) in another 8830 and things worked fine and the browser,yahoo/windows messenger icons and the Blackberry help icon appeared.And if I send HRT registration request using ny8830,I don't get the reply.May be I need to Flash my device(thats what I was advised by some phone gurus),if so then what software is required may be BBSAK?

You are also using a very old CDMA device with a GSM carrier. Airtel may not provide the service books for that device, in which case it will never work.

Nope. Service books do you no good without a plan.

Actually the one I have(if installed) enables/configures the browser automatically and it appears on the home screen Including other services providing a free wireless internet.No need for a data plan
