    Award For DumbA** Of The Month Goes To...

    Advertisement



    ME!

    Okay, so since Satuday I have been like WTH is going on with my Pearl. Many of you know that TMO had a massive service outage on Saturday.

    Well, I was thinking "hmm...maybe the pearl somehow got fried" because I was unable to send any emails, use the internet, blah blah blah, but I was able to make calls fine and I was in EDGE coverage...

    Well, it really didn't bother me because honestly, I only use the Pearl as a backup anyways, and have had no real use for it the last few days.

    Sitting here today I was like "okay, this is kind of annoying now". I was thinking that either the device was fried or TMO decided to teach me a lesson for the MyFaves on the 8700.

    I had already tried all of the usual suspects: Battery Pull, Wireless On/Off, Diagnostic, logon to TMO to make sure I didn't somehow delete the BIS plan, etc and could NOT get onto the BIS.

    Okay, well, yep, believe it or not yours truly decided to call TMobile and see exactly what the deal was.

    So I am sitting on hold and it dawns on me...

    Options....

    Network...

    Don't tell me...

    Yep.

    I had shut the data services off on the phone.

    Saturday night during the outage I was playing around trying to bounce onto Cingulars network with my Pearl. I was trying a bunch of different things and had turned the data off at one point when I was trying to just use the phone services.

    Well, Obviously I never turned it back on.

    Talk about a close call...I had already said "BlackBerry Support" when the TMobile recording thingie came on the line.

    BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    So here is my admitting that I was a complete dumbass and it was all my fault.

    Meh...See...Even "veterans" sometimes screw up.

    You responded WAY too quick to this post...

    You knew I was writing it...And I can see it...You were probably sitting at your computer hitting the refresh button so that you could comment as SOON as it came active.

    Well that's sucks for you since you spent all that time trying to figure out what was wrong but I guess now you have some experience with this problem.

    Actually a pretty funny story. Just my .02 cents,

    It happened to me last weekend. I turned off wireless to take a flight, then forgot to turn it back on. I kept wondering why I didn't get any calls or email all day (I didn't have a chance to call anyone or use the Internet).

    At least I figured it out before I called tech. Bwhwhahahahaha.

    I am thinking there needs to be some icon or notification on the homescreen when you have your data turned off, but your wireless turned on.

    Usually if you have your wireless off, it says OFF atleast...With just the data turned off, you still show EDGE/edge/GPRS/gprs.

    Great story. Honestly, saturday the same thing happened to me. Except that I didn't notice until around 4 30 pm I had about 40 emails shoot to my phone. It was then that I realized that my network had been out of reach.
