    So I have Storm 2 9550, OS is v5.0.0.1015,from Verizon. It is unloked and works perfectly in Georgia, all the BB services are available there. Now in Iraq, non of the operators :Asiacell, Zein ect, are able to set up blackberry services, they don't know reason, just "instead of EDGE (capital) is written edge

    Now if I upgrade OS will it help?
    Or what can be done to use my device as normal BB not just phone?

    please advise..

    Thanks for your help.

    Radio data activation: Yes
    Signal Level:-87 Db
    Radio Access: EGDE
    Network:Asiacell
    IP:
    Blackberry registration :NO
    Connected to Blackberry: Abort
    Blackberry pin-pin: Abort



    What I can do?
    Welcome to Gianni


    Verizon US Storm (9530 & 9520) owners are no longer allowed to register with Vodafone India Blackberry Service.

    Vodafone customer care confirmed that starting June 2011, all US Verizon unlocked phones will only work as a normal phone and will NOT register to Vodafone carrier to provide BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service).



    What this means is the unlocked device from US has to be used only for phone calling.

    Since the unlocked Verizon blackberry devices are not getting 'registered' with the Indian carrier, "EDGE" will appear as "edge" irrespective to OS wipes/books, etc....

    Apparently, the mobile provider is blocking use of Storm 9550 & 9520 device model(s).

    The only other solution is to contact the carrier directly to confirm if this is in fact true, and what other solution can they provide.

    If you have any changes in your issue(s), please reply back.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for your reply..
    First of all I'm in Iraq, Kurdistan now and using Asiacell, besides 2 weeks ago I was in Georgia and there my blackberry was working on Magti and Geocell operators, without any problem. That's why I'm confused, if it is blocked from Verizon, that how come it works in Georgia and not in KUrdistan?

    thanks

    Yes, that is correct, Gianni.

    Please contact your current mobile provider, and see what solution they can offer you.

    I can only do so much from my end.

    Thank you.

    Thank you so much for your help...

    I was giving them **** last 5 days, but nobody knows what to do, they only say it is blocked and I have to buy new BB in their office
    So if it is blocked from Asiacell, there is no chance I can get BB services as I guess.

    not good news

    OS 5 is the highest you can upgrade to. The latest version of OS 5 for the Storm 9950 is here... AppalachianWireless_9550_5.0.0.1082 - Downloads - BlackBerryOS.com

    Check this thread and you will know all you need to regarding Blackberry Protect. It is compatable with devices using 4.0 OS up to the current OS releases.
