    Something Eye Catching? Na, just - HELP!!!

    Advertisement



    My job said it's best if people in our department used BB for the E-Mail services to the company so I bought a 8800. I do not know how I ever got along with out it. Now 3 months later the department is closed till it combines with one of our other departments. ( 1 Yr ) I do not want to keep paying for the BB plan with my Cingular Wireless " The New AT&T" LOL. I would however like to keep useing my BB 8800 to go on the web to use Yahoo and do some of my other Outlook E-Mail like my old Blackjack or Palm Treo would do. I do not want to stop useing my BB... It's to nice to put away for a year. Also along with the department closeing came a pay cut so I need to save money. Please Help--- What can I do and how can I do it???

    Do you use messaging services? If not dropping down to the basic personal BDP will save you $20/mo. If you now have unlimited messaging. Data is still unlimited. After that I suggest two less trips to Starbucks each week. That will save enough to pay the data plan.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    You're going to need a data plan to get on the internet. I don't use Outlook so I'm not sure how that would work. I guess you could still sync because that doesn't use data from a data plan.

    you won't be able to get email pushed to your bb. although, you might be able to sign up for a lower costing medianet package, since you already have service books. without the service books, the data shouldn't work...but since you have/had the bb data package, it might just...but that's just a guess.

    otherwise, without those service books, you cannot get that stuff to work...and like i said above, you won't have the push email feature without the blackberry data plan.

    Re: Something Eye Catching? Na, just - HELP!!!

    We were useing the corporate messaging services but now I will not even need the push e-mail for a long time come starting this Friday. As long as I can get on the internet and go to like yahoo or one of the other free services I can set up some new e mail addresses for personal and some work related mail. I would not even be concerned with Outlook come to think of it. That would get me by for a wile. I have an unlimited data plan now with text messaging so that is good. I hate to call Cingular, I mean AT&T, and let them guide me with out first learning ware it's really at from those here. You can talk to 10 reps and get 6 stories with them. I hate that.. So I guess I just need internet and my unlimited data service with text. Can I do that with out the extra cost of having the special BB package for the push e mail ? Does that take much off of the package cost? Thanks all.....

    You might be able to browse with MedaNET and Opera Mini. However, if you need data then get the Blackberry data plan for $29.
