Using UMA on a t-mobile branded curve 8900 on rogers sim

I wanted to share my experience on getting UMA to work on a non rogers branded blackberry, partularly the 8900 Curve.

i found alot of help on the usual forums blackberryforums.com and crackberry.com.

you need to get to the escreen of your phone. you do this by pushing the alt + caps + h keys all at once. You will see a screen called Help Me!

Using your computer go to:

–update on above link… seems that BB is cracking down on these generators. I was lucky to find another one on a blog.

Enter the information from your blackberry on the computer EXACTLY as it appears.

Once you get the unlock code, enter it on your phone, remember to use the alt button to enter the code.

I am pretty much fast tracking this how to as lots of info is mentioned on the aforementioned sites.

The settings once youre in the right screen>

mobile network engineering screens/utilities/session manager,

“UMA options”. Create a new setting and enter the following:

Display name: Factory Provisioning
Operator name: Rogers
UMA protocol version UMA v. 1.0.4
Provisioning UNC address: hbsc.uma.rogers.com
Provisioning UNC port: 14001
Provisioning SEGW address: segw.uma.rogers.com
SEGW certificate: ca.rogers.com

you need to pick a certificate which for Rogers, is ca.rogers.com. I had a tough time trying to find this, so I will share this with you upon request on this blog, just send me a msg/comment.

If you have any questions, feel free to comment on my blog and I will reply asap.

 

**UPDATE: since I have been unable to send the ca cert to the folks that have requested it, I am linking to it here.
download ca.rogers.com

please be sure to leave me a quick comment and let me know how you made out.

  1. I had to pinch myself when i read this entry! I’ve been searching hi and low for the rogers UMA certificates so i can enable my unlocked t-mobile 8520 to use talkspot (UMA) on the rogers network. Please please please send me the Rogers UMA Certificate and i will be forever grateful. THANK YOU

  2. Thank you very much for your help. If I could get the rogers cert that would be most helpful.

    Thank you for posting this by the way, you’re really help us out.

  3. I have sent out the certs to the peeps requested thus far. Please let me know how you make out. I assume people are trying to get the 9700 UMA going as this was recently discovered.

  4. Hi can I get a copy of that cert for Rogers? Im trying to get this setup on my unlocked Bell 9700 with a Rogers SIM. i hear it only works when on EDGE tho as there is no 3G to UMA handoff available yet.

  5. Great post! I’m trying to get UMA working on my 8900. This is the last piece of the puzzle…

    Can you please send me a copy of the ca.rogers.com certificate as well?

    Thank you!

  6. Hi

    Ive been struggling to figure out how to get UMA working all of last night until I finally came across your blog. Thanks alot!

    Is there any chance you can send me the rogers cert?

    Thanks in advance

  7. Same as all these others. Sorry, it must get a bit boring for you, but I’ve been going crazy trying to get the certificate ca.rogers.com to activate my Tmo blackberry on Rogers

    Thanks …

  8. Hey, i got a quick question. My 9800 doesnt have the ca.rogers.com certificate. I cant use bbm, facebook, twitter or anything since my phone isnt connected to RIM. i was told that if i got the certificate it would work. So i tried sending the ca.rogers.com certificate from another phone to mine, but i cant recieve it using email(dont have the plan for it) or through PIN(since bbm isnt working. Is there any other way to get the certificate to my phone? Thanks
