Bold 9790. SOS / Searching for network
Hey guys. I have Bold 9790. And this is my story. I bought this phone from WIND Mobile in Canada and since day 1 i've been getting SOS mode when i'm at home. I was convinced it was just WIND's service. My brother who has WIND as well, has no complaints using a Huawei phone. I tried talking to WIND but got nowhere, obviously. So, still convinced it was WIND and not getting any help from them, i got my phone unlocked and went to Fido. Now i have gotten a Fido SIM card, and i'm back to square one. Always SOS or Searching for network. But just as well as when i was with WIND there are certain spots of my room (orienting the phone in a certain way, whether leaning up or resting against something) that i can get signal. But this is useless to me since whenever i leave my room, i'm stuck with SOS.
PLEASE, please please please somebody help me. I have had to pay off WIND for the phone- a sum of $350. That is A LOT of money considering i'm a student with NO income. I don't want to believe that i've wasted that money for a dumb little brick.
Also, i'm CERTAIN its not the SIM card as it works perfectly fine in my Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro. But i dont want to go back to using the Vivaz Pro, I wanna use my blackberry as it clearly has many advantages over the SE. Please help me, somebody, i'm frustrated and going crazy.
I was thinking- would my phone get screwed up if i used RIM's software for Fido 9790s?
The Fido 9790s have OS7.1 whereas the WIND phones have OS7.0
thanks for listening to my problems..
