    hello new user

    Advertisement



    Hello everyone i am a new user i just got my first blackberry at 4:30 and have been on the phone with cingular/At&t for 5 hours even though i am glad i bought this thing its great i still haven't figured everything out yet but i will get there i finally figured out the blackberry email stuff..

    i need to figure out one thing though download ring tones when i hit the link for the rink tones on the browser page it just comes right back to the same page hummm is it the user or the internet dunno.

    well i like this thing a lot i used to have a moto v557 flip to a 8700c blackberry night and day. the text messaging stuff is harder cause you cant text you have to email it.. somepeople i know dont have a BB then what text it to my BB account i hope that works but i cant figure out how to email/ text things to a regular cell phone. probly the smartest thing to do is get on a plane fly to FL and have my Cuz figure this thing out

    CAUTION USER OF THIS BLACKBERRY HAS NO IDEA WHAT HE IS DOING LOL

    Re: hello new user

    Id be happy to figure this out for you... hint hint hint.

    Thanks for joining cuz.

    Anyways, as for the ringtones, what format are you trying to download, and from where.

    Try here for tons of ringtones... http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com..._websites.html.

    Or even the multimedia forum... http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ultimedia.html.

    When you hit the ringtone from the BB it should open in the media player, then you can save it to your phone. Make sure to use mp3, thats the best for your BB.

    As for text, this may have to be a question for users with the same carrier as you. Can you text without a plan, pay as you go? Im not sure, but you should be able to get something going.

    Why can't you text? If you have a "data plan", you can text (SMS).

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~yes but unless you got a txt package its 15 cents a mesaage. Good news is its only 10 bucks more for 1500 or 20 for unlimited. Well some may think that's expensive but I don't

    Well SMS is SMS, it shouldn't matter what phone sends it, whether it's a BB or not. Your SMS address is your phone number converted to an email address, same as everyone's SMS. Did it show a little "D" on the check mark of your sent SMS message?

    Do you have a text plan? I hope you are going to be charged for all those sent and received.

    If it didn't show the "D", it wasn't actually delivered to that user.

    The open letters will remain that way. If those didn't go through, you would get a red X, SMS will give you the check mark w/ a "D" above it if it is successfully delivered to the recipient.

    The only thing I would question with you is if you do actually have a "Blackberry Data Plan". If you are only paying $40 a month for your service, I would seriously doubt that would include the BB Data Plan. My plan w/ Alltel, Cellular service, BB Data Plan, and unlimited messaging is $120 a month and that is on a business account so only paying $40 a month would make me skeptical in thinking you had a true BB Data Plan.
