    I think it's more likely that RIM told t-mobile "no more exclusive phones for you if you try to fight this". Verizon is at the bottom of this bc of that AT&T settlement. Blocking phones takes it a step to far though. I contacted the EFF today to see if they can look into this.

    Agreed! However, T-Mobile's big push is Android so its really no skin off of their nose. RIM made a mistake here. All they did was gave Android more market share.

    I agree. If it turns out this is RIM i'll probably get an android phone. I have it loaded on my iPhone and it's not too bad.

    Next week Verizon is announcing the Droid X. It sounds like a killer device. I really wanted to stay with T-Mobile and take advantage of their HSPA+! So I am on the fence right now. Its kind of sounding like the Droid X will have Flash on it too:

    I tried reading most of the 49 pages of this thread, but am still a little confused. Can someone pleas clarify for me, is it only BIS/BES and BlackBerry push e-mail that is not working? Or is it ALL data period If you stay away from all RIM specific stuff, and just enter the T-Mob APN and run the Diagnostic, does "Radio DAta Activation" say "Yes", or if you open Opera (or some other non-BIS/BES data connection) does it work? If the last 2 work, and it's only BIS/BES stuff, then it's a RIM issue. If NO data is working, then looks more like a T-Mob issue.

    Just for kicks I figured I would try tethering with the lower case "edge" and it still tethers extremely well. I see no difference in tethering speed whatsoever. In fact, I am typing this post from my notebook and tethered through my lower case "edge" Storm. So at least tethering still works with T-Mobile's network, which I guess is further evidence that RIM is the culprit here as the BIS is what is not working. So yes it is looking like RIM is the one causing this!!!

    50 pages of discussion, headlines on tech sites, calls to networks, and one week later still result in no official statement from either party responsible smh. That is insane.

    JN, it's not only insane, it's customer abandonment. I mean seriously, why do companies feel they have the right to treat PAYING CUSTOMERS this way, and leave us in the dark? To be sure though, I bought the 3g slide and threw my blackberry up on ebay. Haven't gotten any bites on it and I think I'm going to have to take a loss just to get rid of it. The slide is an awesome device fwiw, so many free apps and uber customisable.

    Oh, ok, then it's RIM specific stuff.

    Actually, I'm in Europe with 3 different SIM cards, 2 BlackBerries and some "regular" phones (SonyEricsson, Nokia, etc). All my phones were working fine with data just using APN. Suddenly about a month ago my BlackBerry data connections stopped working (APN) on 2 of my 3 SIM cards, but no problems with any of my other non-BlackBerry phones I can only guess these 2 operators suddenly decided to block all "rouge" BlackBerries (ie: without BIS/BES) from APN access to force them to take BIS/BES plans.

    I like BlackBerrys hardware, and OS, but I'm really getting tired of these "special" restrictions. I don't think I will be considering any BlackBerries for future phones. Probably Android or Symbian or something more "open"...

    Well, I fired RIM and switched to android. Not too bad really, it'll take a little getting used to. It seems that T-Mobile upgraded their network and I'm getting over 4mbps downloads now! Yikes.

    Has anyone done a before and after on RIM's. Verizion and or T-Mobile's stock market quotas? I bet they've shifted a bit. I hear Investors don't like bad news.
    I wish I knew somebody on Wall Street I'd sure would give em a heck of a stock tip!
