    8700 UPDATE?

    Advertisement



    Hey guys,

    I am new to the board, and have two simple questions I have to ask:

    1. Are there any updates for the 8700's yet from BlackBerry?

    2. I currently have BlackBerry IM, but I've been trying to find a downloadable version of MSN IM onto my BB, running the same wayBBIM does.. Anyone know if I can do that or what I can do?

    Thanks...BTW, I must say.. I LOVE BB's, especially the 8700!!

    Best regards,

    Danny

    To answer your questions:

    1) I don't think there are any updates yet, it's a fairly new unit still.

    2) You can download the following instant messaging programs:
    [There are others, but these are what most people seem to like; I do not believe there is a free MSN compatable program.]

    Verichat - (Multi Network) (Annual Subscription)
    WebMessenger (Multi Network) (Annual Subscription)
    Causerie Messenger (Multi Network) (Annual Subscription)
    IM+ (Multi Network) (One-Time Fee)
    BerryVine Messenger (MSN Direct Connect) (One-Time Fee)
    QuickIM Messenger (MSN Direct Connect) (One-Time Fee)
    Ramble (AIM Direct Connect) (Freeware)
    BlackChat ICQ (ICQ Direct Connect) (Free Open Source)

    Have fun with the forums; I don't mind answering questions that have been answered (as normaly information gets updated), but I will recommend if you want a quick answer to try using the search feature. It's located on the top; the 5th button from the left. - If thats not your style; feel free to type a message and I'll most likely come around at some point to give an answer; or you & anyone else can just send a PIN message over and i'll try and help. Sometimes my reply will be a bit slow though; I have a tendency to forget to set myself as busy.
    PIN: 240F09FB - Feel free to msg anytime.

    Thank you very much for your help Andre! I appreciate it. It is too bad that there is no FREEWARE MSN IM

    Welcome BlackBM!

    There's one more if you can get your hands on it, its the default messaging app for Tmobile phones by OZ. It's "freeware" but works on sms so you'll need a text messaging plan. Its not data like the other messengers. I'm trying to find the correct location for it since tmobile has changed it.

    Push to talk, commonly abbreviated as PTT, is a method of conversing on half-duplex communication lines, including two-way radio, using a button to switch from voice transmission mode to voice reception mode.

    @ Melissaox-Cingular has launched this service and I was hoping that the new software update would make the 8700 capable of using this. It has a button on the side that would make a perfect PTT button.

    I don't think there will be an update for PTT but it is a software and platform update from what I hear....I know nothing else...

    I like the fact that I can not answer when my phone rings. With that said my co workers are good about not calling too much. They only call when there is a real need, so it hasn't been to bad.
