    curve general questions

    Advertisement



    Hello all! New to the bb experience. I cannot believe I lived this long w.o. this device? I want to ask a couple general q's. Hope this is the right place!
    1)Whatdoes the wap mean before certain webpages?
    2)I'm reading about movie playin on the bb. Is the bb media player sufficient? Is wmp avail?
    3)Bis. Bes. Ibelieve bes is the enterprise client. So if I donot use that do I run a bis?
    4)What is difference of viewing pinstack on the default browser as opposed to the ota?? Version?
    More to come I'm sure. I bought it and want to use ot to the fullest!
    Thanks for input. Anything I need to know, feel free to msg me. My pin is pin:2450d0cb

    1- WAP = Wireless Access Protocol; Internet protocol for mobile devices to display web pages

    2- Yes, for the size of the screen and the movies that are converted to play on it, it is good. There are other media players available for the BB though if you find it unacceptable

    3-Yes, BIS is BlackBerry Internet Service; it is what the carriers use if you are not on a corporate BES server

    4- PinStack is available via wap on your BB browser in limited form. Many things that view on the PC browsers do not view on wap so it is a slimmed down version of the site. That makes data transfer and viewing easier on a smaller screen.

    5- Welcome to PinStack! Happy Stacking.

    Welcome to Pinstack, ncorbay!..and enjoy your BB! We Pinstack users love our BB's and love to discuss them - the problems, the issues and, most of all, the fun we have with them. When you get a chance, update your profile with your device, OS version and any other info you are comfortable putting on it. That way we'll know what device, etc. you're referring to when you have questions and info or report. Thanks and welcome.

    thanks for the virtual warm welcome.. ive been spending the day tricking this sob out.. i had no idea what the capabilities of this unit was.. wow.. all day i tell you.. if you're bored and reading this a little help...
    downloaded a colts theme from the d/l section of this wonderful forum.. downloaded correctly.. did not list as a theme.. it was in the phone under applications.. couldn't click to "use as" or move..
    1) any help to get this to work (already deleted)
    2) where is the default d.l folder, (i figured it would recoginize the ext of the file and save it apporpriatly, it did not).
    thanks again.. ive searched first, couldn't find anything to help

    oh and
    3)is the operating system pretty much the same for all BB's, or is it pretty device dependant when it comes to app's?
    thanks again

    i am going to re-d.l and see what happens.. i did notice that when i first started using it, when i changed an option, it was like it did not do it instantly. so the above makes sense.

    for the weekenders that check this out..
    i want to d.l some apps and want to be sure that that i am doing this the correct way.. new to all the bb .exts.. if I were to d.l opera mini, is it best to do it through the pc then to bb through dm?
    or just download it ota to the bb>? i don't want to run in to any sync prolbems in the future..
    also, is the bb smart viewer that all the stackers talk about the free version or the $ one?
    jsut trying to start this the correct way.. as always. thanks for your help.
