    8707v + t-mobile usa = no browser service books?

    Advertisement



    i recently purchased an unlocked 8707v for use while overseas on ebay.

    while my email works fine, i'm having problems getting browser service books sent to my phone. i've changed my handheld using the t-mobile blackberry setup web app, i've registered my handheld numerous times, and i've resent service books numerous times (via the web app)... but still no browser service books (and as such i can't surf the internet).

    i normally use an 8700g on t-mobile usa, have a blackberry plan, and use BIS (not BES). i am having absolutely no problems at this time when i use my 8700g.

    i tried my friend's cingular sim in my 8707v and everything works fine within seconds of start up - browser service books, internet surfing, etc.

    has anyone had success with the 8707v and t-mobile usa?

    ercinho, I'm not on TMO and am only on a 8700, so can't really help here, but just wanted to Welcome you to PinStack.

    Have you tried asking tmo. I take the view that its none of their business what handset you use as long as you are paying the bill. However, do tmo support a 8707 of any sort? (In the UK, I think its only voda at present).You've got to at least ask....

    In the meantime why dont you download Opera Mini and use that as a browser, until you get this sorted out.

    Could it be the previous owner was a BES user and had the browsers blocked? Just a though.

    Wouldn't clearing books and resending them clear that up though?

    Not if there is an IT Policy Blocking loading one of the Browsers.
