Torch, UICC Update Fail 2, Rogers - Blocking the phone?
I have had my Torch on Rogers since it's release in the USA. It has been working fine up until yesterday.
I noticed Rogers has been pushing BULL**** to my phone (Zoompass, Rogers Store.. etc) the last few days and yesterday my phone's data connection seems to have died. I called rogers and they resent my service books.
I received the following error.
When the phone is connected to WiFi, everything works perfectly fine - WiFi, BBM, Browser.
When the phone is JUST connected to 3G, nothing works unless it's an app that uses an APN (Google maps, berryblab..etc). Anything that goes through the RIM network, doesn't seem to work (Email, BBM)
I called Rogers back and the guy just sent the services books again. He said that Rogers is likely "Blocking" my phone because it's not a Rogers phone (even though my phone is unlocked, and I have at least 8 unlocked phones on Rogers, I'm a developer).
Anyone have any thoughts or recommendations?
I'm running .214

I am curious to see if anyone else on Rogers with an unlocked Torch has run into anything similar.. Could be Rogers doing whatever maintenance needed that's been causing delays with other carriers up here, and hopefully means that they are doing what is needed to get the phones out Friday.

i've had an att torch since it came out too, working on rogers no problems at all. Rogers did push all their crap to my phone (backup, music, my account etc) and it loaded fine.
Its working just like any other phone. NOt sure what the problem might be...

Rogers cell customers hit with service outage
Web Staff, cp24.com
Rogers cellphone customers experienced what technicians are calling a "critical, severe shortage" Wednesday night, with many customers across the Greater Toronto Area unable to make calls or send and receive text messages for several hours.
Customers using data services did not seem to be affected, says a representative from the company.
First signs of the outage were seen just after 8:30 p.m., but the system was functioning again by about 10:30 p.m.

I know this is an old thread, however I'm currently using the Blackberry Torch 9860 that I bought straight from RIM and I'm getting these issues as well... and it's 2012. Every time I try to connect on the Rogers 3G network, it is never able to pick it up and it only connects to the 2G. I tried and putting it in a search for only 3G networks and the results come up as Wind 3G. Me having a Rogers sim card means that will not work.
I've tried almost everything and I even updated to 7.1 unfortunately. I've called RIM and I've called Rogers and they said it could be that it wasn't unlocked properly or something like that. Would anyone be able to help?
