    Re: gmail / hotmail

    I've never tried this, but if I was in your shoes here's what I would do to at least TRY (again, not sure if this would work) and get internet and the gmail app without service books. See if it's possible to do a dm install of opera mini (as I'm 99.9999999% sure the native bb browser requires service books), and then use that on wifi to o.t.a. download the gmail blackberry app.

    Not so sure about a hotmail solution unless you use some other 3rd party email client that could use wifi as its data source.

    That's just what I'd try. Someone with significantly more know-how than me might chime in and say 'not possible' ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    You can use gmail through the mobile google xhtml site, and hotmail through windows live mobile.

    You might beable to check hotmail from mobile.hotmail.com ?


    Download opera mini, it should work with wifi.

    Btw: what service do you use.

    I haven't been able to use opera with wifi so I'm sure he won't be able to either. If there is some way to get it working I'd love to know myself.

    Are there any other browsers out there that could be used? If not, installing the gmail client via desktop manager might work if you can't get opera to connect using wifi, similar to what nateshiner said...
