Newbie Needs Help Please
Ive been given for free a bb pearl 8100, this is my first ever blackberry and im really impressed. Just a few questions:
When i set a song as my ringtone, it takes about 5 rings before the music kicks in, is this normal?
When i select the map function all i get is green lines, do i need to put the maps on?
Is it possible to use this phone for sat nav?
Can i connect this phone to my wireless internet at home?
And my last questions is what cool applications are out there for it?
Thanks in advance
uhhh . lot of questions ....
1. no that isn´t normal. try an other song.
2. sat-nav >> no ! the 8100 has no gps on board
3. wireless >> no ! the 8100 has no wlan on board
4. i like vlingo (www.vlingo.com) and viigo (www.viigo.com). check them out.
regards from germany
8110 has gps
8120 has wlan
Ok thanks for the quick reply, not to worry about the satnav, already have one in my bmw,
What is vlingo?
Thanks from England
vlingo gives you the opportunity to speek a lot of commands for example:
* open contacts/messages/ calender
* call ..... at office/home/mobile
* search .... (web search)
* send message to ....
* new task
* new memo
* send email to ...
OH ok that sounds gd, i downloaded it but cant seem to put it on the phone, its in a .jad format, do i need to change it?
Thanks for the help
start your desktop manager sw. connect your bb with your pc. choose "application loader". add the vlingo-file you´ve downloaded.
Yeah i tried that, doesnt seem to want to do it, have you got a link for me for my phone on vodafone?
go to www.vlingo.com
choose "Other" as carrier
choose your BB-model
type your e-mail adress
and submit. They will send you the rest.
I haven´t had a problem with this.
Yeah thats what i did, then when i put the link in comes up with
Please select the appropriate download link for your BlackBerry.
Download for 0s 4.2.1 or 4.2.2
Dowload for os 4.3 or 4.5
Download for Os 4.6
I downloaded 4.2.1 as my os version is v220.127.116.11. Then when i come to add it with desktop manger, it cant find it because its not a .alx file. When i search all files i find it, then when i select add it comes up with an error saying "no addition aplications designed for you device where found"
So im abit confused, im using desktop manager v18.104.22.168
