BB stuck in GSM mode! - Help
All, My BB has been in GSM mode all day, preventing me from accessing the internet for one. I have done 2 battery pulls but to no avail. Any ideas/suggestions?
is your provider having some issues today or doing some type of upgrade/maintenance to their system?
Not sure, I am on AT&T. We did have some serious storms up here in NJ this morning -- could that be a factor?
1st question, are you in area that does not have data maybe? That happens to my international clients. (some in China right now with no coverage)
Go to options (wrench) -> Mobile Network.
Data Services should be ON
Click Menu -> Diagnostics test
This will bring up the Diagnostics Test app.
Click Menu -> Run
This will run a number of standard tests and save as a report.
Check to see if anything fails.
Storms could indeed have an effect. Give AT&T support a call.
Thanks for the help Threekings. My data services is "ON", but when I ran the diagnostics program, many of the tests came back "No". I'm going to call AT&T.
Last time my phone was stuck on GSM it was because they interrupted my service. I didn't pay my bill. Lol
T-Mobile Curve 8320 - 22.214.171.124 OS Beta!

That tends to happens when you "forget" to pay your bill
My bill is completely up to date, but thanks for the thought. Could it be a type of sim card error?
As long as you can make calls using the device, no I can't see it being a SIM card issue.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
I'd call AT&T Before you post about something like this. It only make sence.
i once had a problem like this with my old tmo 8100. took several wipes before it finally worked. tmo support did not help. good luck

just give it some time(:cry and try calling your provider and see if they are experiencing a "data brown-out" AT&T has them all the time because they are constantly updating their service to provide the best possible coverage, often this is even device specific EG: you live around alot of people that own BB's-they will try to make your service area as BB friendly as possible so people dont cancel their service and go to verizon or sprint...
Tilt is fun with WM 6.1, but not enough to kill the need for my nw iPhone 3Gs!!!
