    Help - 8700 in China to use China Mobile BB Service

    Advertisement



    This is for my boss' 8700g, which I am studying now.

    It was a device for T-Mobile (Carrier code 114). My boss subscribed China Mobile BB service. However, when his SIM card was inserted, the signal still showed "edge", not "EDGE". As a result, he could not activeate.

    Anybody has a clue on this? (Note: there is no BB formally for China Mobile. All BBs bought in China are so far for other international carriers (e.g., Vodafone, T-Mobile, etc)

    Thanks!!

    As far as I know... China Mobile does not support BlackBerry data provisioning. Thus BlackBerry will only work for voice (phone calls) and not for data (BIS email and internet).

    Actually in some areas in China you should be able to use BB roaming there, I would guess big cities like Beijing, Shanghai or Shenzhen, thou, I am not really sure about this one.

    are you reffering to voice or data roaming? I agree with voice as mentioned above, however not sure about the data at least with china mobile

    Well, they have BES plan now, so I would guess they will accept data service roaming for BIS. Also I am with O2UK, and China mobile is one of the few telecoms mentioned on O2's website that you can roaming to for bbs

    Hutchison is the provider for out Hong Kong and Beijing offices. Our US users have been able to roam on their network with 8700's (T-Mobile and Cingular) when they travel.
    It doesn't record video. Get over it.

    I bought a SIM last month from China Mobile in Beijing. All I could get was GSM, no edge or EDGE in my 8700C.

    Currently you can only do roaming in China, and if you want bb service in China, you only get BES, then you will need to have the server yourself.
