    Question Hello.. New pearl user here w/ some help needed

    Advertisement



    God i love this device. Its sure beats my sprint smartphone(ppc6700).
    There are only a few little quirks with it though.
    The browser doesnt open alot of the pages i visit with my regular smartphone (bank, credit card sites.. ect).
    Is there a way to get a different browser installed?

    I love the service through TM though. Im cancelling my sprint contract as soon as im comfterable with the phone and i can give out my new number to all of my clients.

    One other thing though, is it possible to get rid of the "Sent via BlackBerry from T-Mobile" footer it sends on the emails?

    Thanks!

    1. Browser: Download Opera Mini and you will be able to access them.

    2. Signature: Log into your TMO BIS service thru the tmobile website, go to set up internet email, pick the email address, and edit it.

    I installed OpMini, and when it does the setup it says "Failed to connect to the internet". I can still use the regular browser though..

    Probably a stupid question, but how can i get my number displayed on the phone. I still don't have it memorized

    1. Go to Options/Advanced Options/TCP and where it says APN put in:
    wap.voicestream.com
    and click save.

    2. If you press the Send Button Once and it brings up your call log list, it will be listed right on the top there.

    Thanks for the quick response. I did the voicestream thing and still nothing. Should i reboot the phone? Or could there be something else messed up with it?

    Yeah...I would try a reboot...Sometimes Opera Mini is a PITA which is why I use it like I do Ramble...Backup only.

    No. When you first got your pearl and tried to get on the Internet from your Pearl it says you need to set up a BIS account. He means to log into that and then use the steps from there. I am not 100% sure if this is what he is talking about, just a guess. If you don't remember your BIS account username then you have to call you service provider. Correct me if i'm wrong fellow stackers.

    I went to Tmobile.com and found the place.
    Weirdly enough i kept trying the Opera thing and disconecting the battery. After about 15-20 times of doing this througout the day, it finally just worked..... WEIRD!
