    hi,
    i am using a vodafone unlocked storm but my service provider is not able to provision the service. the phone can basically do everything, make calls, send sms, etc but it won't provision
    when the sim was removed and put in another phone it immediately provisioned. could the phone actually have a hardware problem? i am finding that hard to believe as it is new. i have tried several os, but to no avail.
    if anyone has any solutions, other than replacing the phone, please let me know.
    thanks

    Do you have BlackBerry Data service activated on that sim card? Is the device switched from UMTS to 2G?

    Hi,
    the SIM has a dataplan as the service was activating on another blackberry. Regarding UMTS and 2G, I am not sure, what I can tell you is that 3G is constantly showing under the the reception bar.

    Sorry for the late response, I am kinda new using Crackberry forums.
    thanks!

    Dataplan is vague is a BB Data Plan?

    Unless your on the branded devices carrier network you need to switch it to 2G under network settings.

    if the phone was claimed as lost or stolen, you can still unlock it..however this would mean that you couldn't use it on Verizon anymore..but could still use it on any other GSM carrier

    The other thing you should be careful of, is buying a phone whose pin is still locked to the network that it originally came from. This basically means that the pin hasn't been released from the network..and can only be done by the owner that it is registered with

    Let me know if you're interested in getting your Storm unlocked. A Verizon storm can be unlocked for $15 cdn and in 5 minutes

    It can still be released without the owner as long as you have had a BB account before.
