    Question BB 7290 from Ebay with no browser

    Advertisement



    I just bought a BB 7290 from Ebay and for whatever reason it doesn't come with a browser I did notice an icon for "Enterprise Activation" (not sure what/how to use it). I sent this BB in to get unlocked to use for my T-mobile plan. I was using Motorola RAZR v3 with the web plan for $4.99/month. My question is, where can I download or activate the browser for my BB 7290 so I can access the web? Please help!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~your browser icon should pop up on the screen once you register with the tmo network.

    So you're saying that the browser icon will appear automatically if I get the signal from T-mobile long enough? That must be the problem, 'cause I dont get good signal at my home for T-mobile.

    You need a BlackBerry Data Plan, not some unlimited GPRS package a BlackBerry Data Plan. No BlackBerry Data Plan no web, email, data apps etc. Once you have a BlackBerry Data Plan added to you plan the service books will be pushed to your device and you'll see you see your browser appear. No there's no work around.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~well sorta. First, do you have a Blackberry package from Tmo? They have a couple to choose from. Second, you need to register with the network. To register, Go to host routing table. Click your trackwheel. It should pull up the option. Click register now. You should get your icon then.

    Another thing to consider is this:

    When using desktop manager to add / remove applications, it is actually possible to NOT install the browser.

    It may be that this particular BB was restricted by whoever was using it before you bought it to not use the browser by not installing it at all.

    This is a "feature" for enterprise users who wish to diable certain applications on the device.

    Welcome to purchasing BB on eBay, here's to hoping when you activate your BlackBerry Data Plan that there's no IT Policy and the previous PIN/IMEI have been released!

    If it still doesn't work, from the home screen, hold sly and click the trackwheel. Go to show all apps. Just throwing that in...

    Definitely start with getting a Blackberry data plan as it's a prerequisite and you won't get a browser icon without it. If, after provisioning kicks in, it still doesn't show up, try registering. If that fails, call customer service and have them push the browser icon. If at that point, you still don't have a browser icon you will probably want to check into whether your device has an IT policy restricting browser access. In that case, you'll need to search on how to remove an IT policy or push a blank policy to your Blackberry.

    Thanks for being so helpful all! I called T-mobile PDA support and walked me through (not sure what they all were) but I got the browser working. Anyone know who has the cheapest program for BB users out of T-mobile, Cingular, Verizon, etc ?

    Re: BB 7290 from Ebay with no browser

    Yes they do. I am on the Unlimited BIS plan for $29.99 USD. This plan has no minutes as I use my BB for messaging only. I also have the Unlimited Messaging Add-on for $14.99 USD and I have Equipment Protection (A MUST HAVE for peace of mind) for $5.99 USD. Here are a list of BIS and BES plans. If you are not on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, ignore those choices.


    BlackBerry Enterprise Server Plans

    Plan name Whenever Minutes Weeknight Minutes Weekend Minutes Price per month

    BlackBerry Unlimited w/Enterprise E-mail No minutes $39.99

    BlackBerry Minutes & Mail Enterprise 1000 Whenever Minutes No Nights No Weekends $69.99

    BlackBerry Minutes & Mail Enterprise Ultra 1500 Whenever Minutes No Nights No Weekends $89.99

    BlackBerry Internet Service Plans

    Plan name Whenever Minutes Weeknight Minutes Weekend Minutes Price per month

    BlackBerry Unlimited No Whenever No Nights No Weekends $29.99

    BlackBerry Minutes & Mail 1000 Whenever Minutes No Nights No Weekends $59.99

    BlackBerry Minutes & Mail Ultra 1500 Whenever Minutes No Nights No Weekends $79.99

    Hope this helps.

    Nice info Erica! Please note, if you have a voice plan bundled with a BB data plan the price is $19.99 instead of $29.99.
