I've been browsing the internet for the last month in search for a solution to my problem. I'll explain in detail what I have and what I've done so far so that it is as clear as I can spell it:
I got a BlackBerry 8100 Pearl for christmas. The gadget is branded TIM (italy) but it is not locked (it works with orange and cosmote, i'm from Romania).
What I want from this gadget is to use a browser (opera mini), one rss reader and y!m or gtalk. I don't need the data plan for e-mail push and other stuff.
APN is set as it should be, all settings (those I can modify) are ok, but it doesn't work. All I can access is Orange World (wap, and this with the bb browser) and no other internet activity works.
I've downgraded it to 4.2, then reinstalled 4.5 for my carrier (orange romania), still same problem. Nothing works but BB browser on orange world.
What else can I try? Can it be that the phone is partially locked on TIM? both orange and cosmote sim cards work, only the internet doesn't work.
On orange I have a prepaid sim, and on cosmote I have a plan (no BB data plan, but the net works on the other phone, so it's a BB thing...)
Any suggestion is welcome
