T-Mobile Opens Blocked Blackberry Ports

Comments

Last December T-Mobile Blackberry users on a WAP connection may have noticed that their 3rd party programs stopped communicating with the internet. Things like their favorite Instant Messenger program stopped working because T-Mobile blocked any applications other than e-mail and the Blackberry Browser to stop working. We reported on this before and had someone from T-Mobile tell us early February for the fix. Well he was right, they have finally fixed the issue and users should now be able to surf as normal. The issue was first caused by a billing issue, took them awhile but we are glad to have it resolved.

We have now confirmed this by using Idokorro’s Mobile SSH program to telnet into our hosting server.
