Default APN for Nextel ? Laptop Connecting?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Ya'll,

Does anyone know the APN for Nextel. I have a 7520 and can't get BB Weather to work properly.

Also, has anyone figured out how to connect this to use with a laptop? I recall seeing a lot of posts about 3 mo ago, but no one had figured it out then.

I greatly appreciate your help!

Mike

Check here. I did a "search" on "Nextel APN" and came up with this -

BlackBerry Internet - MSN/chat/web/telnet/TCPIP - No BES!

Good luck!

Make sure you "Disable MDS Proxy" in the preferences when you use the wheel to click the weather section while using the bbtoday.
