If the Customer Service Officer says that your BIS is activated, yet you cant access the services, you can do this:

  • Go to Options -> advanced -> host routing table -> register now!
  • Then you should get a email saying you are registered to the server.
  • After which, wait for a minute or so, then perform a battery pull.
  • If problem still persists, inform your network service provider immediately.

If somehow you are disconnected from the data connection suddenly, go to manage connections -> turn on and off the mobile network.

If you have intermittent break in connection and the above don’t work:

  • Call up your telco and request them to reset you network. Once done, do a battery pull – remove the battery for about 5mins.
