    Sounds like you don't have the Blackberry feature code.

    Go to Cell Phone, Cell Phone Plans, and Cell Phone Accessories - Alltel Wireless and login to your account. Check your features, and see if you have "Blackberry Personal Edition" or whatever listed or if it says "Smartchoice Data" or something like that.

    I actually am selling my configured Storm (and will update the settings for a buyer). I went back to my Curve cause I'm using email a lot more for work stuff so I wanted the ease of use oft he physical keyboard (although I really REALLY ilke the Storm one I just type faster on the physical and I need that for work).

    Ok quick question. I got a storm did all the steps got my storm activated on alltel got the internet working on 1xev everything working great but when I go to my mobile network it says Verizon. I checked my curve and it says alltel. But I know I'm on alltel. Is this a bad thing?

    That's fine. It's based on the coding in the software, not the actual network. It just assumes if you're on your "home" network its VZN.

    EVDO is about 10x faster data wise than 1x.

    I really doubt they'll find out, they have bigger things to worry about.

    Not to sound like a "hater" but Alltel uses esn's so there is nothing to unlock, simply call tech support get someone to request the esn be added to the device management data base like my Sprint friend did with his & voila you are in....Verizon doesn't advertise it....plus Verizon owns Alltel, cdma works on cdma....gsm has to be "unlocked"

    Is it possible to use these steps to turn an 8330 curve from sprint and use it on Verizon?

    Did anyone get a 4* PRL for STORM. We are getting only 3* series when I update PRL OTA.
    05-04-09 10:24 AM
  23. digitard's Avatar
    You will get the 3 series. The reason is the ESN/info is not known by Alltel's system to be a Blackberry device so it's shooting you the a non-BB PRL.
