    If you updated your firmware then you need to make sure to delete the vendor.xml. Or do you mean that you're in the UK using a US storm?

    Oh - and you meant the storm 9500/9530, not the bold 9000 - right?

    To get internet etc on your storm you need a Blackberry Internet Service bolt on from o2. This is not available on pay and go.

    Look at o2 simplicity sim's, you can get the Blackberry bolt on free on the 20 simplicity package.

    They are not identical.

    The 9500 is GSM-only. There are no CDMA radios in the 9500.

    The 9530 has CDMA as the primary radio set, with quad-band GSM (EDGE in the USA, 3G outside North America).

    Both have different firmware versions. When updating, you need to make sure you are grabbing the correct version (9500 or 9530).
