[Q] Streak on Bell
I have seen that an unlocked Streak should work on Bell in Canada. My current phone is an HTC Touch (CDMA) and I have acquired a Bell SIM card for my Streak. After inserting it into the phone (Twice - once in store and once at home through online site) it finds Bell under Networks, but fails to connect stating the following:
Unable to connect to the network at this time. Please try again later.
Here are the details of the Unlocked UMTS Streak I have originally from Dell.com:
1 225-0059 Streak UMTS Base
1 318-0145 Carbon,Streak
1 317-1902 16GB SD Memory Card
1 331-0805 Black Barcode label,16GB,UMTS,No SIM, Online,Unlocked,Streak
1 331-0789 Dell Streak Documentation & Manual, Unlocked
1 926-0563 Advanced Exchange Limited Warranty Initial Year
Please let me know what I need to change/do to get this activated. I really want to have this up and running and eventually add a HSPA/3G data plan.
Is it any settings that need to change or do I have the wrong hardware? Let me know if further information/clarification is required.
Additionally, from my understanding, the first SIM that was activated in-store(and correspondingly deactivated) was wasted since I had to switch back to my HTC Touch to have a working phone. Is this a valid assumption?
Thanks and I really hope someone can save me. I did not purchase this solely for usage as a tablet. Lastly, in store when the representative tried my serial/IMEI it stated that the phone should in fact work.
