We don't ever loan out the Blackberry devices for issues. But to answer your question, our SIM engineering team removed the option from the cards to stave off any insane amounts of roaming. Updating the device won't enable this option, and only certain execs and engineers have the option available on their own SIM cards. I had a Nokia 3300 on old, blue AT&T Wireless and was able to do it with an AT&T SIM card. When I unlocked it for Dobson and put my Dobson SIM in it, network selection is not present. Anytime I put my dead AT&T SIM in there, it's present, so the option has to be pushed out by engineering, and they ain't gone do that for a regular consumer. Make sense yet? Remember, it's all about "money". Evil world we live in, isn't it?
