    Download crosswords and then solve them on your BlackBerry. Saves you buying a newspaper everyday and carrying it around with you. :-)

    http://www.karlisaac.com/xword has more details. Very reasonably priced considering how good it is too. ;-)

    Oh, did I mention that I'm the author -- LOL!

    Re: Crosswords working on 8100!

    I cannot download any crossword. I consistently receive the error code "java.io.EOFException null"

    I have followed the instructions to edit my TCP settings, and changed the default browser.

    I have unlimited OA internet access, and have accessed, downloaded, and installed various programs.

    Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Re: Crosswords working on 8100!

    Hello, Karl.

    Yes, I am on Cingular. I have tried both configurations (WAP.CINGULAR and isp.cingular ) listed for Cingular at http://www.shapeservices.com/en/faq/sections/bb_tcp.php. The existing profile was the first listed on the website, and I tried the second as well (of course, inserting the rest of the listed information as well).

    I don't have any problem downloading installation programs, jpegs, bmps, etc.

    Thanks for staying with the issue--I have a 2-4 crossword-a-day habit, and it would be fantastic if I could take them with me on my BB.

    Re: Crosswords working on 8100!

    Karl--

    After trying multiple times, I have a new error response today: "java.io.IOException: Failed to transmit failed to transmit"

    I went back in and changed the TCP settings both ways listed for my carrier (cingular), and same error code.

    I'm receiving BB messages over the BB server, and have internet access today too--it only seems to be a new error code on XWord.


    Any new suggestions?
