Hi everyone! New to the Blackberry world... transitioning from the T-Mobile Sidekick.
I went with NEXTEL because they are the only company I can get cell service with where I work. I don't have broadband internet access or land telephone line access where I'm at also so thats why I went with NEXTEL.
I recently purchased the application, and although the NEXTEL network isn't that fast, it works pretty well. It's better than nothing. I started this thread to post problems that I've encountered while using the Shark Modem. Hopefully someone out there (or the Shark Modem folks themselves) who has also experienced these problems can give some assistance on how to correct. Maybe this thread will has a Sticky! attached to it someday!
Here are some websites I'm having problems with... (using Firefox, but have also tried IE with same results)
- can't seem to access GMAIL (www.gmail.com
) error message comes up on screen saying "document contains no data"
- can't access Yahoo! Mail also. Just doesn't load... seems to be transferring data, but never loads after the log on screen.
- Hotmail... nope no luck there either. After the log on screen, it appears to load... but I just end up with a blank screen and loading says "Done"
- AOL Instant Messenger (AIM). I have all the connection settings set to what was displayed in the Shark Modem user's guide. It goes to step 2. "verifying user name and password" then all of a sudden drops off and says "connection lost. check your internet connection"
Thoser are the main problems I've been having. Basically, anything where I have to log on... it locks up and doesn't load. Message boards seem to work fine (including this one!), but other websites like webmails, banking, myspace don't seem to work.
I can however, access these sites on the Blackberry device itself.
ideas? fixes? settings need to be changed? Appreciate the help!
