    MSN on BB storm

    Advertisement



    Hey All!

    I'm new here, but I have a small question about MSN on Storm... I have a BB storm unlocked on AT&T and my questions is, why when I try to connect to MSN I can't do it... It will say connecting and connecting but it won't connect. I don't have a BB data plan, but I have unlimited at&t data plan. I don't know if that matters anyway. Anyone could help me out ?

    Most software that is made for blackberries is specifically made to use either the BES or BIS blackberry services...

    Some can be configured to use standard data plans, but most can't...

    You will need to get a blackberry plan (BES or BIS) before your messenger will work for you...

    Hope that helps...

    You said you are with at&t...
    I believe their bb data plan is $30 for BIS service

    Gives you:
    Access to 10 email accounts on your bb
    Unlimited data for emails and apps etc... (You won't need to maintain your other non bb data plan)

    Have fun... I'm sure you'll find it money well spent...

    Yea I have already talked to AT&T live person chat customer service and they said that its $30 for bb data plan, but I'm not able to get it till tomorrow since I have to call actual customer service will be open again tomorrow...

    Does that mean I have to register my BB storm with AT&T ?

    I was actually assuming that if you had the att data plan, you were using your storm on att for your cellular services as well? Or whose your cell carrier...

    Rather, what exactly do you mean by "register"?

    My carrier is AT&T and I make calls and text from my AT&T service... my question is what is the difference between BB data plan and regular unlimited data plan ? Some one told me that I will have to make a BB account or something like that but if my phone was Verizon and it belong to someone before my BB data plan won't work.

    Once they sign you up with your pin, you have to set up your emails through either your device or your comp...

    If the previous person had bb services on their device, you may have to follow a couple of steps before you'll be good to go ( never had that scenario so I can't say much abt it)... I know there are threads here abt it... Incase that does happen, we can find that info for you...

    I wouldn't be discouraged by that...

    Non technically speaking, The difference is that blackberry data plans route data through a diff channel... and most software made for blackberries is set to use that challel...

    I'd recommend you take it a step at a time, and everyone here at the stacks will be here to help if you run into a road bump...

    This thread is abt bb devices whose pins have been registered before (as in, the device has been used for bb services)...

    Simple enough...

    Should be resolved effortlessly I'd say...
