    I've recently flashed my storm to metro pcs
    everything works fine except for some applications such as Blackberry AppWorld, Youtube App, Pandora App and a few others.

    For example my storm will not allow me to use Blackberry AppWorld. When i try it reads: "Upgrade your service to a plan that allows browsing" my phone does allow browsing so I am very confused.

    Pandora App one of the many apps that also doesnt work because of the so called unability to browse
    and the Youtube App just never fully loads( waited an entire day and nothing)

    So i was wondering if anyone who had the storm flashed to metro pc had the same probllems and if so i would like to know how to fix it.

    Thank you so much for even bothering to read this and i would appreciate it greatly if someone gave me more info
    Cheers

    Similar problem happens to my friend's phone on ATT. He has unlimited data and everything on his phone but his line is not setup for blackberry internet access so alot of the apps he can use are disabled =\. I don't know how to go about fixing the BIS problem with Metro

    Do you have a data plan with them?

    How do you get the phone flashed?

    Sorry bro but its one of the problems flashing devices to and other carrier as you know you are using the web browser whit the metronet.and blackberry app world works under the blackberrry data plan without that its useless trying to open the apps that works for bb data plan you can used other apps 3th apps either you cannot used the bb messenger its because theres no blackberry internet service in your storm to see it clearly go to manage connections>services status>blackberry internet service conection :NOT CONNECTED

    Sergy is totally right even if you had flash you blackberry storm to metro and you are able to send pic messages and use the web and even if you are paying the blackberry plan It wont work because metro has in their network data your phone as a non metro pcs AKA Flashed phone, if you call them to put your phone in their blackberry database they will refuse (Don't ask why) because they say that service is exclusive for metro blackberrries.

    the only solution is to somehow put your ESN/MEID and PIN in the metro pcs Database as a metro Blackberry

    Metro (ghetro) PCS is horrible. Why own a storm and have slow data!? That makes absolutely no since to me at all! You couldnt pay me 1000 bucks to flash my storm to metro! I worked for metro corp but I saw the light and went to vzw. lol

    I have metro flashed storm and i can use about 75% of the apps because i purchased their curve and got on the bb data plan then i had my service transferred to my storm and sold the metro curve on craigslist. Only app im really having trouble with is youtube but i believe metro blocks streaming

    Aqui una pila de descarados que no dan nada y solo piensan en cobrar por algo que no es ni de ellos. Acuerdate antes de pasarlos activar Legacy SB Restore.
