Hi to all
forgive me if i ask for already answered questions, i am new on this forum (as new as my BB !)
I bought my 8830 Verizon World edition unlocked from a "professional" chinese Ebay seller.
Here are the system and software data of this smartphone:
System version: 126.96.36.199 (Platform: 188.8.131.52)
Kernel Version: 184.108.40.206
I have several problems.
1/ i am using a Mac computer with a 10.4.11 OS which forbids me to use the actual Destop Manager which is suitable only for OS 10.5 and later (Intel machines)
Maybe some of you know where i can find an older version (for PPC Macs) of this Desktop Manager ?
Or am i obliged to use a PC to perform any task with this phone ?
2/I dont have any BB plan of any kind with my carrier (Bouygtel in France) and when i tried to set up a POP account i only had the choice between an Enterprise server and the skipping of the email setup. If i change the software on the phone (i currently have been able to download the 8830uAMEA_PBr4.5.0_rel138_PL220.127.116.11_A18.104.22.168 Version of the system)
will i have the choice of the POP account setting up ? (if i succeed in installing it !)
I must say that i use an Android phone for the moment (Huawei) and that the email setup was a breeze. BUT it is not a very good phone for calling that's why i wanted to have a wellknown standard of the industry as a BB
3/ when i insert my SIMcard, i am not able to download the contacts from it into the address book. It says "SIMcard access error"
The strange thing is that when i insert my former carrier SIMcard (Orange) it is working (but when i change back the card to the previous one, all contacts disappear because i have to remove the battery)
Is there a workaround for this ?
4/ the Opera browser is in Chinese, can i find a french or English version for free somewhere ? or does the BB have an embedded browser itself?
5/ where can i change my phone number identity (for the moment i see an american number showing up saying that it is my number when i try to place a call) ?
Thanks a lot to those who will try to help a newbie like me !
