    Thumbs up 8700 Questions ..

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone.. I want to thank all of you for your help so far... As some of you know, I had the good fortune to get an 8700 very cheap ... Then I got it unlocked so I cna use it with my current cell phone providor.. I pay $50 a month and get unlimited anytime min to anybody in anynetwork in north america (landline or cell)... I also get unlimited Txt messages, and unlimited Internet... all si great.. but here is my newest problem...

    (1) I called yesterday and got the itnernet reactivated on my account.. I explained my situation to them, and they told me theri network is not compatible wiht Blackberry devices yet (they do not sell an of them either). But, they gave me all the settings for the APN network that I need.. but when I tried to enter them, it still says ther are insuffient network resources to process your device.. or says network connection refused... I don;t really need the whole "Blackbery Experiance".. I am just looking to surf websites in a pinch, or use instant messaging... (Also, coudl oyu reccomend a good yahoo or aIM baised IM program)... Any suggestions?

    (2) Do any of you have any extra accessories for the 8700 that you no longer need and woud lbe willign to sell and ship cheap ? As I said, I only got the 8700 itself... nothing else.. luckily I can charge it usign the USB, outlet charher, and car charger that I has for my Motorola MPx200 phone. I would like to get a leather case or belt holster and a bluetooth headset... Thanks in advance

    (3) Is there a version of Windows Mobile (CE) for thiws device.. I am much more familiar with that OS after having it on my MPx200 (I upgraded to the 2003 version on that). I really liked the lay out, and have a ton of programs for it that I downloaded...

    Thanks people for reading this and possibly helping me out.. I really appreciate it that you take time to help out this BB noob -=Teej

    I haven't heard of anyone putting a windows OS on a BB. Personally one of the great things about a BB in my mind is that it is NOT a windows device. Windows is always so unstable.

    Re: 8700 Questions ..

    I personally found my MPx200 to be a great phone, and is based in wIndows.. has a great NES and Geneisis emulator.. but if there is no Windows for it, I will live with this OS.. I have another question.. When I get a TXT (SMS) message, my phone light changes fro mflashign green to red.. but it makes no noise to indicate I got am essag.e. where is the setting to change that? Thanks

    You may not want the whole "Blackbery Experiance".., but if you want to get ANY data services on your blackberry device, you will definately need a BlackBerry Data Plan. If you carrier doen't have an agreement with RIM to provide Blackberry Service, you will not get data services. No Browser, No data based IM, and I don't even think that there is an SMS based AIM IM app.

    Sorry to disappoint you.

    (2) - have a very nice leather vaja case for the 8700, it's got a scratch across the front of it but it's normall 80 bucks with shipping
    pm me if you are interested. I have pics

    (3) i never heard of anyone putting CE on a BB. I'm pretty sure it woudln't work not to mention i'm sure there are some licensing issues there.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~hi teej, I don't think your first query has been addressed.If your current provider can't give you BB data functionality,I'm afraid you will be limited to Voice and SMS.Unlike "ordinary"mobiles you don't get web access with a BB unless you have a BB data plan. So I'm afraid you can't pick and choose from the "BB experience".Its either the whole nine yards (web/email/voice/SMS/MMS) or just voice and SMS, sorry.

    Re: 8700 Questions ..

    Interested in a seidio skin?? I also have the clip that goes with it... My skin is the translucent one... I also have the extended battery with door cover which was never used... I also have a seidio holster that will fit the 8700 WITHOUT a skin... Any or all of these I'll be willing to sell...

    I thought so too. Then I thought, "maybe it's a posting timing issue" but the second post was 12 hours after yours. Ah well...
