Default Cingular 8700c - Instant Messenger & MP3 Ringtones

Please Login to Remove!

ATTENTION ALL CINGULAR USERS OF THE 8700c:

In order to get the web messenger clients and chat services to work, such as AIM, Yahoo Messenger, & MSN, etc. you have to call cingular and ask to have the data connect services added to your plan on top of the Blackberry Unlimited Connect Service. The data connect is a free add-on once you have the Blackberry Unlimited. Just explain to them that you want to be able to use the messenging clients and the customer service agent will assist you. The Data connect opens up the WAP port so you can connect to those services.

DONT ASK FOR WAP FEATURE ASK FOR THE DATA CONNECT ADD ON

You Must Input Manually before then:

1. Go to Settings
2. click > Options
3. click > Advanced Options
2. click > TCP
3. Input these WAP Settings (Case Sensitive)

APN: wap.cingular
Username for APN: [email address]
Password for APN: CINGULAR1

THIS SHOULD WORK IT WORKED GREAT FOR ME
I am using Webmessenger 2.3
GOOD LUCK!!!

MP3 RINGTONES
In Order to get MP3 Ringtones on your Blackberry you must:

1. Just find anysite to upload your ringtones or use a host site such as 3gupload.com. There is a charge I think for some of the services but I think the uploading of files is free though.

2. Make sure all your files are at least 32000Hz-16 Bit format or Higher. 44000Hz is the usual format though.

NOTE:
(a) You can only download mp3 ringtones from the Internet Browser not the Cingular Browser because the cingular browser has a 120k limit.

(b) In order to surpass the 120k limit that the Cingular Browser has use the Internet browser.

(c) So if u do find a site with MP3 ringtones they will not work unless they are made in the proper format. Thats why its better to make them yourself and find an upload site. It will download the improper format but will not play on your devices audio player.

(d) So sending mp3 files to your phone SMS or blackberry email address will not work as far as url downloads or attachments.

(e) When DL the mp3 files to your phone the browser will say loading at the bottom. Once loaded, the file is automatically saved to your tune library and will immediately start playing in your devices audio player.

Well I use 3G Upload and it works fine

When it comes to selecting your phone the blackberry is not listed, so just select a phone with MP3 Capabilities. I picked the S710a being that I still have that phone and still use it.

When you actually start uploading your personal files you will see something like this, Do this before pressing continue to every file you upload because it will not be compatible to the blackberry since its not listed as a device.

Upload a file to your personal storage space:
Choose a file to upload: [___________________] (Browse)

([+]More Options) <-------- CLICK HERE (continue)
once clicked you should see

Ringtone Cropping Options

Choose Start Time: [00] Stop Time: [30] (in seconds) disregard this

[]Do not format this file for my phone <----- click this option to keep your file as is

After doing this access your 3G Locker from your browser and enter your username and numeric pin. After that all your files should be readily available.

GOOD LUCK and enjoy your downloading

if you find any free host sites please let me know.
