The Storm2 was previously BES connected so I know I'll have to remove the IT Policy to use anything on it. It also used CDMA so there was no SIM card in the 9550 to begin with.
After I unlock and remove the IT policy I plan to use a pre-paid SIM that won't have a data plan. (<= More on this later)
My question relates to these Service Books I've read about. I understand they provide BB functionality such as web browsing, email, MMS, etc.
Some threads I found talk about restoring the Service Books to gain functionality again but when does a BB lose its Service Books? When I put a new SIM card in? When I kill the IT Policy? When I restore the BB OS?
I've made a full backup of the 9550 with the Desktop Software (v6.0.1 B21) and enabled Legacy SB Restore before backing up.
I plan to unlock the phone, remove the IT Policy and restore the OS.
Since I'll be using a pre-paid SIM with no data plan (for ex. BIS) I'm under the impression I won't be able to go into the Host Routing Table menu and "Register Now" since I won't have BIS. Assuming I can't do that there's no way to gain the browser back so I can use the 9550's Wi-Fi right?
