unlocked phones
I've travel to the USA and UK a lot, and used to use a Blackberry 8310 iwith T-Mobile and a pre-paid plan when in the USA. However, in 2012 I couldn't get emails and was told my phone was too old. I was given a Verizen Blackberry Bold 9650 by a friend. I asked Verizen to unlock it: they wouldn't. So I purchased a key online to unlock it. Next time in the US I had again a T-Mobile prepaid SIM, and put it in the new phone.

Calls OK (once the settings were switched to GSM and 2G/3G by the third T-Mobile shop I visited!), texts OK: no data services (none of my email accounts were recognised). No T-Mobile shop should fix it Is there a way to receive emails?

Secondly, my phone, especially when in the South, would give me a dialogue box reading 'Congestion.' Never in my life have I seen this before. Do you know what it means?

Thanks for any and all help.

re: Unlocked Phones: How and Why to Do It
Unlocked phones became very popular in Europe years before the US but I'm glad they are becoming more popular, services are getting cheaper and contracts are soon going to be a thing of the past. Unlocked Phones Depot carries a large selection of Unlocked Phones I've found: www.unlockedphonesdepot.com
