    OKAY IM Planning On Buying A "9550Storm2". DOES ANY ONE Have The BB data Plan Running Full EDGE With T-mobile?

    when i mean BB data im referring to: MMS,Email,Internet.. fully functional

    Crackberry members I want to confirm that the "Storm 9530" was only affected were "EDGE" Is not staying soild and ONLY "edge" is present to this day. As i read threw posts, some users report having a working MMS,email, internet features working well on the Storm and storm2

    DO NOT BUY A STORM, you will get edge and not EDGE but the internet will work, you will have basically access to the internet using any third party application, like opera mini, or bolt.

    Any third party application will work, but not the stock application like the blackberry browser or email.

    So get the 9700 instead of 9550.
    If you still want to use the storm, I know that AT&T and Verizon are the only working options for you for now.

    That's not completely true. I have Storm, right now on T-Mobile and it is showing full EDGE, not just edge. It only had an issue for a day for me. Everything works fine right now even the BB specific browser, BBM, and e-mail.

    I know some people are still having issues, but mine works fine (I live on the East Coast directly south of DC). I followed the instructions here to upload the T-Mob service books and then went online and resent the service books to get this bad boy updated with the current books. Worked fine.

    For reference I have the Even More Plus plan with unlimted data/texts, not the older BB exclusive plan.

    My Storm use to work just fine where others had No Browser and no emails issue.
    Since a week I am in the same field like others. So it is a matter of time then you'll be in.

    I hope, I am mistaking.......

    Theres rumors around that t-mobile yesterday fixed the edge issue from there network. "THE FIX" is by switching APN setting to epc.tmobile.com

    May Any One confirm this? i have S2 shipment on the way...


    does changing apn setting to epc.tmobile.com bring EDGE back with all you data including email mms an internet with apps like facebook working an pandora?

    Comment down only CRACKBERRY MEMBERS that have the "BB add-on plan" for t-mobile ["BIS", "BES"]

    Please comment down if yes or no

    Not sure why you would comment down someone that has the BB add-on plan. Even with the newer plans, you still technically have this feature on your account. You are just not charged directly for it since the plan price is locked in for smartphones. It still shows me as having the "Blackberry Unlimited Web" as an add-on.

    Anyway, yes my APN is set to epc.tmobile.com. It always has been since I have always had the BB plan on my account and I changed it from the older voicestream one a year ago (before I got my Storm).

    Hope this helps.

    There was a major problem for Storm owners and Tmobile for most of the month of June, but it is supposed to be fixed now. I had problems for a week or so, but am now back on EDGE, internet, sms, mms, etc.

    I have been using my Storm on Tmobile for the past year and have been very satisfied. Love my Storm!

    (you can go to the Storm1 forum and peruse the 70+pages of the thread re: Storm/Tmobile problem and confirm that Storms are back up and running at full capacity again)

    Maybe you can help ALOT other T-Mobiler users? by perform the following task? It wont damage your phone or cause any major issues. Cuz the APN are just network settings and you can set anytime.

    1. Uncheck your APN settings. leaving it uncheck and blank. Then try to surf net, use BBM, native WLMsn and test email. Do you still see EDGE? if requires.. turn off/on your mobile network for few seconds to detect network again.

    If by perform item 1 and you still see EDGE, that would mean... you dont even need to set the APNs cuz your HRT aka Host routing table already setup your BIS apns.

    let us know your findings.

    ps...FYI... not all apps uses the TCP/IP apn...storm2 facebook, browser, WLMsn etc all uses native HRT apn.

    those that can use TCP/IP apn are mainly the 3rd party software. e.g. Nimbuzz, bolt, opera IM plus, etc...whenever TCP/IP apn are activated, from my understanding they will switch you out of BIS network.

    I am using 3G/GPRS/EDGE. My TCP/IP apn are unchecked. All my 3rd party apps settings are set to using auto network detection or BIS only
