    New Blackbeery user, wiped phone, now going crazy

    Advertisement



    Hey guys,
    I'm brand new to this blackberry thing (by a few hours). My father just got a t-mobile dash, and gave me his 7105t. I wiped the device as soon as I got it for a fresh start. I then went to the t-mobile site and downloaded the update. Now, the browser is gone and so is my e-mail configuration abilities. I try and reload it from the desktop program, but it says it already exists. I've installed opera, but I don't have e-mail! Help me please!
    Thanks,
    Rev

    i would go to previous version of the OS and run it for a short time to make sure it works then try to upgrade. Also look under the securites optin to see if there and IT policy on it, if the phone was used and came from the internet there is a strong change it does. I would try to remove it than install the latest update if it has one

    Hey Rev,
    Email:
    First, log in to your account on TMo, go about 3/4 way down and on the left side you'll see the link to "Set up Blackberry Email". Click that link, and it will ask you for your email address and password to set up the account to push to your BB. This takes a while to go into effect sometimes, so have patience while TMo sends you the service books. If still nothing after a couple hours you can log back in and resend the service books and when you get them, the mail icons will show up in your BB.

    Browser: I assume you have already gotten a data plan with TMo considering you're trying to do the email thing, so I'm guessing you haven't completed the Activation. If you have, then i'm at a loss and I hope someone else can give more insight to you.

    Adding to Jade, you've got to have a BlackBerry Data Plan associated with your SIM.

    Then register your device with the T Mobile BIS.

    Then you will have service books pushed, including browser(s).

    But the first and most vital step is the BlackBerry Data Plan, no way around that, if you don't have one, you won't get email or internet browsing.

    Thanks guys!
    Turns out, my father had the service and I didn't, so the browser was removed on the next update. I signed up for BIS, and expect it to work within 24 hours.
    Cheers,
    Rev.

    P.S. So what cool things can I do with this thing?

Plus you'll be able to receive your email through an amazing technology called push thru technology developed by the award winning team at research in motion. And you'll be able to do all this from a device that's easy to use and stylish to boot!
