Which Data plan are you on and should I switch?
I am on the BlackBerry Unlimited Add-on plan for $19.99 a month. it has been great. However I can not seem to get any of the T-Mobile bundles to work with my service. I can MMS but that's it. No VVM settings or tethering settings. I dont want to miss out on the fun stuff
I am on a 3G with 3.0

I'm on the Blackberry Unltd Addon $19.99 as well. My Internet, MMS and tethering work perfectly! I've been on this for over a year now with no problems.
One of my co-workers has the $19.99 web2go (I think it's called) and her MMS, Internet and tethering work fine too. She's been on it for close to a year.
We're both on 3G phones. I'm on a 16 black she's got the 8.

Ok you have a 3G so.. you should be able to tether. I think it's a problem with how the package installs, resetting network settings, trying to uninstall and reinstall the carrier settings package should eventually get Tethering to come on.
I had this problem, trying to work it around by resetting and reinstalling.

Log onto My T-Mobile.com, change your phone to a Sony Ericsson TM506, then go under services and unselect whatever plan you have now and select the Web2Go plan.

Are you on FlexPay or Postpaid?
Try calling them about you having a new phone and wanting to change your data plan... they'll usually ask for the IMEI of the new phone but if they do just tell them you don't have the phone in front of you or call back and get a new rep. Or get the IMEI of a T-Mobile phone that isn't a smartphone.

I'll tell ya right now they never asked me for an imei take the sim outof urphone select a non smartphone like a razr tell the rep u want to be able to switch phones aroundbut still have Internet access. They actually recod the web2go for my gf's memoir I told them I would also be using an iPhone which btw the tower knows ur using cuz last week when I called the rep said " oh I c ur using the iPhone our towers pick up ur imei " but not a problem (see my previous post on this for full details on the wap not working thread)

Alright-Just talked to Tmobile and they switched me to the web to go... I will see what happens on the carrier bundle install.
08-03-2009, 02:19 PM #15
I changed my data plan more than 5 times in July, only once did they not ask for an IMEI.
08-03-2009, 02:32 PM #16
I put the carrier bundle in and all seems to be good now. They did ask for the new IMEI# and I told them I did not have it yet. They switched it anyways.
Saving me $10 a month is awesome...Thank you
