    Advertisement



    So im new to this forum...but i had a few questions......Is it possible to get internet without haveing a data plan.....On my previous phones I was still able to check sports scores but on this phone nothing?

    Is this possible I have a link for a site that says the above is possible...Since I do not have an apporiate level I can not add it....If anybody can help with either one of these questions I will send the link to you individually and then maybe you can post it........


    Second question.....I left my Usb cable at my home..I am currently at college so is there anyway to load a theme or software program through bluetooth or through a microsd card....I can see it on my microsd card but I cant do anything with it......????

    Any help would be greatlly appreciated.....

    1. I can't help here. Maybe? Who's your carrier?

    2. You can install themes OTA (over the air) if it's available, you can also do it with applications if they are available OTA.

    Re: NOOB...Need Help

    When you download or load a file using the application loader what folder does it get sent to on the blackberry and is there a way to access that through the phone its self? Possibly to move a file thats on the sd card into there so it works that way?

    That depends on the file.
    what type of file are you trying to use?

    all applications are stored on the device memory. you can't run applications off the sd card. Sorry

    you're stuck in a catch 22 man. First you need to get Opera Mini onto you BB. If you don't have a data plan you need to use the DM to get Opera Mini on your BB. So since you don't have your cable i don't think you can even attempt to get free internet untill you get the cable.

    The site looked fine. I'm not sure if it will work though.
    There was a loophole for TMO like this, but they plugged the hole about a week ago. I'm not sure how Cingular has things set up.

    bluetooth is pretty crippled in the BB. If you can get it functioning it works well. It took me about a few days to get the ability to sync with bluetooth, but I think that was because my dongle is a POS. I don't use it for anything other than transferring files and syncing with Outlook.

    As for the cable, if you have a PSP or digital camera with a mini usb cord it should work fine. I use my cable with my PSP, because I bought it second hand and it didn't have a usb cord. If you don't have either then i think cables are pretty cheap. 10 bucks give or take. you could find one at radio shack or a store along those lines. Best buy etc. Just look for USB to mini USB...i think those are the connections. (EDIT you want the 5 pin mini usb NOT the 4 pin)
