I was told that since my 9810 is unlocked, I could run the update again with a T-Mobile SIM installed and would regain Network Mode, but them the moment I put back in my AT&T SIM, it would be disabled again. Freaking AT&T !!!!! That may be why they never officially released the 7.1 update yet.
    Sorry for the delay Thullraven, as I have personally spoken to another BBOS Team member regarding this issue, and after some though, I agree with you 100%, it is as a matter of fact, AT&T has disabled this feature for OS7.1 members who have installed this on their BlackBerry OS7 devices.

    It was thought if you inserted your AT&T SIM card, and this feature is disable, only to find out by inserting a T-Mobile SIM card, then obviously AT&T has disabled this on their end.

    It seems AT&T has disabled it via their infrastructure networks, and it isn't fair to customers of AT&T, so all I can say is contact them and find out why they do this, when other mobile carriers do not, if they cannot supply you with a satisfactory answer, it may be time to switch to another mobile carrier.

    Hope this helps my friend.

    Thank you

    The BlackBerry Curve 9360, and the BlackBerry Curve 9380 has the FM radio feature with OS7.1 installed.

    Thank you.

    Hello kruel, and welcome to

    The BlackBerry Torch 9810 does not come with the FM radio feature, which is only available to BlackBerry Curve 9360 & 9380 owners.

    The media share feature, is available to BlackBerry Torch 9810, via the leaked OS7.1.0.402, which I will provide to you below.

    Downloads: 9810_7.1.0.402

    Thank you.

    Grimreaper my friend, I've spoken with AT&T.They said they eliminated the network mode option because they are discontinuing their 2G towers in the near future. I noticed all of their newer phones do not have the network mode option either. Just thought you might be curious as to the reason.

    Thank you Thullraven for your response, and I sincerely appreciate it.

    I can understand why AT&T is getting rid of 2G wireless networks in the near future, to make room for the current 4G (H+), and the enhanced 4G LTE wireless networks, which would also explain the elimination of the Network Mode option.

    For example, I currently have the option to choose 2G* 3G/H+* or 3G/H+ & 2G* wireless mode option.

    It wouldn't matter even if my mobile carrier got rid of 2G, as most wireless carriers use 3G and 4G (H+) and now 4G LTE in my area now.

    Thank you.
