    Hi All,

    Sorry for asking what possibly may be a very stupid question but i figured somebody here may be able to help.

    I upgraded to a 9800 last week after finally tracking down a handset at Phones4u, all was well untill i noticed that the UMA feature wouldnt work (previously had a curve 8900 that worked fine). I have called orange and they told me that they dont offer the UMA feature for handsets that were not bought through them :cry:

    Now, does anybody know if i can get around this by installing an Orange firmware for the 9800 on my phone or do you think it will be locked out by PIN?

    Sorry if these are stupid questions but im a bit out of my depth here lol

    Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) requires support from your carrier and a properly provisioned BlackBerry.

    This link will guide you through the process of manually creating the Orange UK provisioning on your BlackBerry.

    Wierd, looked at my phone last night and it is now using UMA without having to mess about with it, have orange started letting non orange branded handsets use uma all of a sudden?

    I am in a similar situation (phones 4 u, with orange, unlocked and no UMA), just last week UMA started working. Orange must have done a bit of an update. It was appreciated.
