    Hi everybody
    I got a new 9860 last week.
    And I bought the bis data plan .
    After few hour I received the SMS ask me to remove my battery . I did so. Then the blackberry icon came out next to "3G". Then I go to host routing table to register.

    After register my service book have only 2 options "wifi tcp/ip browser "and wifi tcp/ip transport"
    And in the service status "bis" is "Not Connected".

    Now I am in South Africa and carrier is Vodacom
    What can I do now?
    Pls help!
    Thanks a lot

    If BBM is working it sounds like you are on a blackberry data plan. What option do you get under Options -setup -email setup?

    So BBM works? Can you use other data services such as the browser or Facebook apps? Under options - setup - email setup what do you see?

    Only BBM works. I can't setup email.
    I think the problem is Service Books.

    Does your carrier offer some different type of bis? Like my carrier has some type of bis like "social" only bbm, facebook, im, and twitter, "business" only bbm and email, and "full service". Each type has their own pricing.

    I bought a brand new 9810 (The store where i bought it said that it's brand new) in shanghai in jan 2012. When i inserted the SIM and did the BIS registration, it said that my PIN was blocked and i have to contact ROGERS. I couldn't sell it because of it so i gave the phone to my cousin and he only use it with an ordinary data plan (without BIS) and i bought a brand new 9860 afterward in Indonesia which is working great till today.

    Looks like that you have to return the phone and ask for another one to the seller.

    Why did you buy phone in china? The blackberry there is expensive plus you don't know if they are brand new or not. HK is much cheaper than in China.
