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

Posted by Dave B on Nov 27, 2009 in Technology

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:

http://absolous.wavegap.com/projects/escreen/

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

hxxp://news.unlock-blackberry.com/how-to/get-mep-code-on-blackberry-without-cable-or-software/

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.

Blackberry Curve 8520

Posted by Dave B on Oct 24, 2009 in Technology

This is going to be a quick post regarding the newly released Blackberry 8520. Let me first say that I am quite disappointed in the features list of this phone. I was quite ecstatic when i heard a new curve is out, but after reading my favorite forums (blackberryforums.com, crackberried.com, boygeniusreport.com) I decided not to purchase this phone. Sure they added the trackpad that replaces the ball, but they still have a substandard lcd screen (which is the same as the old 83×0 Curve), a substandard 2.0 MP camera (non auto focus) – with NO FLASH — are you kidding me?? Currently this is the only 85xx series phone out as they phase out the rest of the 83xx series phones. So this one comes with wifi (UMA support) but thats about it. Sure its beefed up under the hood, but my suspicion is RIM is getting rid of their spare parts from the 83xx series phone. Understood its for the mid level consumer, and they cant make all the BB’s all cadillacs, some of them still have to be the chevy’s and the pontiacs.

I was checking on craigslist for this phone and they are running at approx $400 bnib. I have an old 8300 that is also listed for $300, so firstly, I am surprised how well these phones hold their value, and secondly, ill wait until the 85xx comes down in price (when the 83xx is obsolete) to keep one as a spare in case I lose my daily use phones.

Ill leave it at that.
