    Re: Must Have Software List

    Khyle, welcome to Pinstack. Most if not all of these applications are Java based. If the Siemens will run Java applications you should be okay. There will be a few that are BB specific due to the nature of the carrier and communication connection.

    I'll dig into this a little further and see what I come up with.

    Re: Must Have Software List

    Has anyone here purchased Dynoplex's software (from Handango)? They have a seven-day free trial for most of their office-type applications. I've heard it is worth trying but haven't yet tried myself.

    I tried the download trial but gave up on it. It was slow. I guess BBspell is all I need.

    Re: Must Have Software List

    I tried the trial version and my BB started locking up 2 or 3 days into the trial. Liked what I saw, but didn't have enough time to really ring it out. Tried again about 2 weeks later and ended up with the same results. That time I got a memory error, so I uninstalled / deleted the software.

    Just my experience.

    I use the Eoffice fromk Dynoplex. Work very good for me. I mainly use it for excell spreadsheets. It is the only ap that I know of that you can actually work on the spreadsheet when on the road and then send it back to your main computer via desktop manager when you get back to the office.
    Have a Great BB day
