    I cant seem to be able to setup my email accounts using the email setup on my phone or eevn on the T-mobile BIS page using a regular pc. I did registered the device and got the service books, i got browser, WAP.. whatever that is, sms, mms... everything seems to work.. i just cant setup my email, when i do try and set it up it says it cannot connect to server. could this have anything to do with the TCP/IP settings, or anything else. The phone is unlocked from verizon and i got it new, not used from a previous user. Thanks a lot for your help.

    Did you change your phone to the 8820 on your my.t-mobile.com account?

    well i changed it on my.t-mobile.com and i still get the same message

    EDIT: I changed it and now I dont get EDGE or even edge, i just get GSM. now i cant connect to any of my apps or anything. I even changed it back and it still says the same thing

    EDIT 2: EDGE finally came back, but the message went back to cant connect to the server instead of connected but the provider wasnt connected, or something like that.

    Change it to 8800, send the service books, then battery pull the phone. See if that sequence kicks the phone from GSM to EDGE. I originally said set it to 8820, I apologize, it's 8800. Do that and follow the instructions in the next post.

    By the way, I knew I had saw a Storm thread in this forum section that dealt with this issue and I just found it. Try this solution, it should fix your problem. http://forums.crackberry.com/f69/e-m...moblie-205095/

    I really have no clue then if you did all of the following that have been posted in this thread. Only thing left for you to do is to call Customer Care and have them transfer you to BlackBerry Support.

    Change your phone to the 8800 on my.t-mobile.com. Then do the steps in the first post in this thread: http://forums.crackberry.com/f69/e-m...moblie-205095/. Once this is done, send the service books and pull the battery to be on the safe side. Once you put the battery back in let everything boot back up and hopefully everything is up and running like it needs to.

    You can go to the BB storm Tips and tricks section and that should take care of you. Mine has been working since day one after setting up everything

    excuse me, im new to the forum but i've participated in other forums and discussions and i believe thread hijacking is not something that the community appreciates.. at least ask!

    Well i didnt mean to "hijack" your thread. we have a common problem and the info should have pretained to you as well. you could have participated in asking questions and, in fact, still can. better to group common problems in one thread than to have the same question repeatedly asked on the forums. just saying.

    well if the problem is the same im going to find the answer for you right now. I found another thread that did the trick.. Basically find someone's blackberry that belongs to Tmobile>put your sim card in their phone turn it on>go to the Tmobile website then setup the emails>go to device settings and change the pin and IMEI to yours>save.. now you should have emails and you can also set them up.. dont forget to select your phone on the tmobile site as the 8800.

    It works like a charm.. so dont look for any others answers.. i spent ours with t-mobile on the phone, blackberry support and even RIM... they coulnd't help.

    PS_ Make sure you enter under Options>TCP/IP>APN>wap.voicestream.com

    Hmmm, that's kind of unusual. Service wouldn't just get poor in your area for no reason, which leads me to believe that it may be the device's signal.
