    At&t "edge"

    Advertisement



    I just unlocked my blackberry pearl 8100 so i could slip in an at&t sim in it so i could use it as a go phone since i'm going on a trip and im just doing it temporary to avoid roaming charges and such with my current carrier. Ever since I slipped the sim card in for "go phone" ive been noticing numerous problems. For instance one of them was everytime the phone started up I would get an error message 453 or something like that and i would get charged for it everytime and also I noticed when i slipped the sim in it right away my browser icon changed to saying "media net" and i'm not even using it and it keeps charging me a few cents here and there and when i look it up on my go phone account it says the charges are for "GPRS". Is there a way i could turn the *data* off or anything so i could just use the phone for voice and sms? I notice in the corner it says "edge" in lowercase. I just need help to fix some setting or something to avoid these charges i'm getting for "GPRS". I also know i'm getting charged because everytime i use the phone for txt, voice and supposedly the data im using (im not) i recieve some kind of txt saying my balance and how much i just got charged.

    Go to Options>Mobile Network>Data Services: OFF

    That should stop your data.

    Not exactly sure what it's doing to charge you though.

    I am wondering the same thing. I was reading this last night and trying to understand. I haven't dealt with go phone accts, only Virgin Mobile pre paid.......like Red said you can turn data off but not sure why you are being charged for other things...

    Well I got everything to stop finally with the little charges here and there. I turned data off and also deleted the APN under the TCP settings.
