Free Blackberry Internet On Pearl 8100
Ok I tried and tested this on two pearls so far and wanted to spread the wealth and hopefully it might work for others!
I tried this on one flexpay T-mobile pearl and one contract T-mobile pearl.
so this is what I did i upgraded the pearl to the new OS 4.5 and when your done the blackberry maps is gone from the device apparently not included with the new OS.
so I wanted blackberry maps to be reinstalled and i tried via the bberry site but it would not recognize the device so after searching the web i found it. the service books needed to be sent back to the device.
ok so heres where the fun part comes in i called into customer care and they kept saying it was because i wasnt subscribed to a data plan (they will keep telling you this ignore it)
so i said can you send the service books anyways for the maps? and so they kept saying you dont have a data plan and i kept saying well just send the service books anyways and i just want to get the maps back on my phone.
so now they will say maps needs the internet and they might have to send the internet service books too they will probably reiterate you dont have a data plan again ignore this and tell them your friend had the same problem and a previous rep did it and it resolved the matter.
so after talking with them for maybe ten minutes they should send all the service books and once your maps are up and working Wa! La! your internet will be on and free!!!
again if this works for pre paid which they will never give you anything for free without you paying first i have to assume this is a lil glitch in the sytem so
everybody try it and post your results.
also dont give up and dont give in..
pm. me if all goes well to say thanks
sounds like you got lucky dude. Update us if your data bill goes extreme
no i have it on prepaid as well thats why it works because you cant get a bill from prepaid i think this will be a nice secret lil trick as long as its not done in the thousands lol
i dont know if i believe this. either way data is going to register somewhere.
if im wrong great! good luck though
There are other ways to go about this method, but the principle is pretty much the same. It does work.
Pretty sneaky and dishonest IMO. But do what you want.
dishonest??ill bet you never stole cable either right or took a penny without giving a penny from the "take a penny plate" lol thats why its your opinion because we all have one just like that other thing we have it rhymes with fastpole!lol
Hey yes we all have an opinion, but keep the reference clean. No need to go there, no to mention if it goes any farther the mods will be on you. Just my 2cts.
