    Hotmail trouble and a couple other problems

    Advertisement



    Hello all. I am new to the wonderful world of Blackberry, and now wonder what I did without it?! This is a great site, but I am finding that some of the lingo people use as foreign because of my lack of experience/knowledge. I have a couple of newbie questions I would like to see if someone could help.

    I have the BB 8130 with Cellular South as my network provider. It has the latest software (one of the many informative posts I have read about here).

    I have attempted to set up a hotmail account that I have had for about 10 years and kept getting a windows live error and something about a lack of JAVA with no way to try and fix it. I was setting it up through the setup wizard and I assume the blackberry browser. Does anyone know how I can get this set up?

    I contacted my service provider concerning the GPS feature and they said that it should work. I stood in my backyard (no trees) for 30 minutes while it tried to "locate satellites" Tried many things including the battery pull and everything I have read here and no luck. Any suggestions?

    I have read alot issues about youtube. Before I wasted my time I talked with my service provider and they said they had no problems during the "testing" they conducted on the phone in watching it. I keep getting errors and have been unsuccessful so far in watching a video.

    Sorry for the long post. I appreciate this site and all that participate.

    p.s. After reading about the Otterbox in this forum, I looked it up and ordered it. Best money ever spent on a phone accessory! Thanks. DM

    For your hotmail question I could be wrong but I don't belive it will work no matter what carrier you are on. Take a look at this thread.

    And for your youtube question are you going to the mobile youtube site? My pearl automatically take me to mobile sites and works fine. Other than that I can't be much help there sorry.

    And for your GPS question. It took A little while to get this working on mine too. I had to let it just keep searching for satellites untill it timed out and then start over I think it took me at least three tries before it connected. After I finally got it to connect it does not take as long now. Hope this helps a little. Or helps untill someone smarter than I has a better advice. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    You need a hotmail plus account for it to work I believe.
