    I recently purchased a BB 8530 that is unlocked from a credible storefront outside of the US. I am currently purchasing pre-paid credits on a SIM card from Movistar in Buenos Aires.

    1) My BBM says active however when i add contacts they always say pending(awaiting request). I have a PIN, display name, barcode, etc.

    2) When i go to set up an email, the only choice I can get is "I want to use a work email account with a Blackberry Enterprise Server". I.E i cannnot have the choice to sign up for gmail, hotmail, yahoo or any account such as these!

    3) I DO have a browser and can view websites, so i know a data communication exists.

    What am i missing here? Is there another chip or something else that needs to be added to the phone for these functions to work? Please help. I need to get BBM and email access via my travel phone.
    Thanks

    Make sure your prepaid data plan supports BIS (Blackberry Internet Service)
