    Got my BB8320 and wow ..... what a neat lil phone. I got it unlocked with no sim. Atm ive got an 02 payg sim in it but not regged yet. Ive updated the OS to 4.5 and tried a few other apps.

    Before i go any further and possibly mess it up any good pointers?

    Whats the best payg carrier atm?

    Why dont msn install?

    Thanks in advance for any help. Now back to research on this 8320.

    Congrats on your new phone. Well as far as apps go, if you are into messaging , I recomend JiveTalk, if you have facebook , its also a nice app to have.. Viigo is cool too. I guess it depends what are you into. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I think the problem with the PAYG deals is that you can't add the BB data add on to them. You might want to consider O2's Simplicity (sim only) plans, which you can add the BB add on (Unlimited or Pay as You Use) to. You can then use BB email, and data.

    We've only recently gotten MSN pushed. Have to go thru email set up.
    I don't have 4.5, so I don't know if you need Opera Mini - check it out.
    As indicated above, Viigo is popular. You can also try Twitterberry, Facebook, access your MySpace, set up your Telenav or the new Garmin, and Beyond411 ~ TellMe ~ Windows Live Search, etc.
    Check out the new Google Mobile Updater for all the fresh and usefull Google apps. I love IM+!

    Not sure about the UK but here in the US you MUST have the BB Data in order to use the internet even with WiFi.

    Jim, if you're trying to download and install the Yahoo Mobile app, go to Yahoo and download YahooGo!
    If you're just trying to push your email, go to the Personal Email Setup icon and then set up your accounts. It's pretty much self explanatory. You enter your Hotmail address and a password, and wala, it's pushed to your BB. Same goes for your Yahoo and Gmail addresses, if any.
    You can also set up a BB email address.

    Erica has a point. You've got to have BB internet on your plan to do any of the above!

    Jim, I hadn't heard of the tweaks outlined on the page you linked to. The info is at least three years old.
    Do carriers still allow free access to the internet using that protocol?
    You need to contact your carrier and find out if they do, and if so, what their current settings might be.
    If not, select a data/internet plan with them in order to facillitate what you're trying to do

    Jim, I don't understand your paradigm. Blackberry owners Crack constantly, on the go.
    Am I understanding you correctly inasmuch as you're trying to use your pda as a home computer?

    yes and no. I want msn and web browsing on the go which is my main objective. Then i will make use of more of the other features. Being as my job involves alot of travel and communication. I was just tryin to wriggle out of the blackberry service.

    Hi Jim

    You are a bit limited on what applications will work over wifi.

    The Opera mini browser will work over wifi and Jivetalk as you have discovered.

    BTW if you get he o2 simplicity sim it is only a min of one months contract but if you add the blackberry bolt on to it this is for min 6 mnths so in theory you have to keeo the simplicity sim for the duration.

    There is a special offer at the moment for the simlicity sim, it used to be Ł25 but for the month of August it is Ł20. This comes with, if bought online 600 mins and 1000 texts and also includes International Travel Service free (good rates when travelling)
