Default Jivetalk Question

Please Login to Remove!

I emailed them this question and got no reply.

Currently Rogers in Canada has a $15 unlimited email plan but there is no data.

IM+ still works but I would rather spend the money and give it to JiveTalk. Is there anyway to make Jivetalk work on this plan like IM+ does.

Well, you may just have to try it (free trial) to find out... but normally it needs data to operate, not an email plan. Enter the TCP/APN settings for Rogers, and it could.
Experiment!

IM+ and JiveTalk use data, sounds like your going to have data charges since you do not have a data plan.

Two answer both. I tried Jivetalk it will not connect. But IM+ will connect
To cliff, When the $15 BB plan is added the data on the account is disabled but for some reason there are apps that still work. And if they ding me for data I will just get them to credit it because there own internal system (I work for them) says that data is disabled.

The difference is the $15 BB Plan is NOT a data plan. So it's not really the same. :-p

So, it's obviously not gonna work for you. You need the BB Data Plan to get full internet, data and push email.

But if IM+ works why can't Jivetalk. What is the difference between them?

BlackBerry Personal Email

Personal email on blackberry.

People have found out that IM+ Works, Opera and some other apps works and no one has gotten dinged with data charges yet. Thats why I was hoping there would be a way to mike jivetalk work.

i was wondering, does anyone know if jivetalk will work using wifi? i know that you need a data plan/BB plan to use it but im with Rogers and we don't have unlimted data so i was planing on using the bb/data plan for back up and mostly use the wifi to chat on jivetalk since i am mostly in a spot where i can pick up wifi signal. Also anyone who is a Rogers customer, i was wondering if you guys can tell me what is the best plan for BB/data plan that rogers has? I'm thinking about signing up..Thanks in advance.
