    Re: blackberry on boost sim need help

    Seems there are some limitations with boost. Found some info from Howardforums.com's member madmarvcr:

    I have the 7520 using a Boost sim. For $0.20 per day you get full unlimited data access, but only at 14.4-19.2 kbps speeds. I keep the boost i285 phone as a backup and pay the $0.20 a day, so I can call Boost customer service and complain when Nextel packet data is not working. Its possible to use a Boost sim without the wireless web option, as long as the signal indicator is all caps "NXTL". But dont expect any help from boost if you didnt sign up for wireless web and packet data is not working.

    using a boost mobile sim in a blackberry, there is no PIN messaging, no SMS, no push email, no html browsing, but there are work arounds.

    What I have found if you dont have a BB plan is to dump as many Service Books as possible. On the BB 7520 i have 5 Service Books

    WAP transport
    WAP Browser
    Desktop [CICAL]
    Desktop [CMIME]
    Blackberry Browser

    with so few Service Books, this essentially forces all the 3rd party apps to use native TCP. If you have all caps "NXTL" in signal, you have native TCP

    My BB 7520 has OS 4.0.2.37:
    here is a list of apps I have working on a Nextel BB 7520 with a boost sim

    I don't need instant push email, I just need to check email when I am out.

    I use Gmail for Blackberries from shapeservices.
    mMail (www.mmail.pl) is a pop3 client that works
    www.imobilemail.com is an imap and pop3 client that works too, I just prefer Gmail.

    SMS is through email, using carriers SMTP format or number@teleflip.com

    For HTML browsing, I have Opera Mini, Minuet and BrowserBoss

    I have never used PIN, so I dont know what I am missing, but for instant communication, I either make a call, DC, or use Verichat.

    From the Desktop, an unexpected surprise, my Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and Notes all sync up with MS-Outlook. The calendar and contacts are a huge plus. MS-Outook Messages dont sync, but I dont need every email going to the blackberry. For important emails, I just set up rules in Outlook to forward important emails to Gmail account.


    Here is the list of apps I have that are working on a BB 7520 with a Boost Sim

    Apps I paid for:
    GMail Mobile 1.3.2 - $30
    Idokorro Mobile FTP 1.0.30 - $35
    Minuet 2.0 - $25
    mMail 2.2.3 - $5
    VeriChat 2.66b - $45/yr

    Free or Demo I have loaded and working:
    BBCorrector
    BBLight 1.8.2
    BBToday 1.5
    BBWeather 0.74
    bblocal 1.0.29
    Berry411 2.6.3
    BlackChat 1.0
    BrowserBoss 1.02C
    Compass 2.0
    DynoPlex eFile 3.200.013
    Google Local 1.1.1
    HelloWorld GPS
    JiveSlide 0.964.1
    jmIrc 0.95
    JournalBar 0.9 beta 1
    midpSSH 1.4.20
    MiMLite
    Mobileplay 1.1.4
    Mobipocket Reader 5.1.0.016
    Mologogo 1.0.4
    Opera Mini 1.2
    Quick Note
    Ramble IM 0.910.8
    SharkModem 1.2.3
    SMTP Client 0.1.1
    Spot GPS for Blackberry 1.3.1
    StopWatch 1.0
    Sudoku by Cellufun 1.1
    Texas Hold'em King 1.0.16

    some gotcha's you have to look out for, when setting this up.
    If you buy a used 7510 or 7520 blackberry from ebay for example, it may or may not have an IT policy (policy.bin file).
    Also, I found things work better if you remove all the Sevice Books, except, WAP Transport, WAP Browser, Desktop, and Blackberry Browser. Remember "less is more".

    I lost WAP service books twice, once at home, and once at the mall. At home I restored them using the Desktop Manager. At the mall, I did a "take the battery out" reboot which restored the WAP service books.

    i don't think that you can get them back unless you backed them up via desktop manager

    Re: blackberry on boost sim need help

    Hey Hayden and Cass,
    What steps do i need to take to load opera mini on my 7100i boost prepaid.
    I already downloaded desktop manager 4.1. Everything connects but I cannot load opera mini on my 7100i.
    I downloaded the advance hifi.alx version of opera mini. Is there another version that I have to download? maybe a lofi.alx version? What did you guys use and how did you load opera?

    help please.....im a newbie to this.

    Re: blackberry on boost sim need help

    Hey, I just bought a BB 7510 naively thinking I could just put my nextel sim card in it and get it to work. But now I'm reading about this Boost idea all over. I'm not very technical, though. Is it hard to set up? There's no browser on the device as is, how do I go about getting Opera and Gmail?

    Thanks.
