Default BROWSER BOSS (The non-MDS solution?)

Please Login to Remove!

BrowserBoss

Currently I am running this software without a BES or MDS and have full html access to any wap site I have tried and several standard format http sites. All this with T-Mobile's tzones for a cheap $4.99 per month. I don't know if I stumbled on a goldmine or what but it works. This is what I did:
  1. Applied the RBRO trick to enable HTML and WAP browser access.
  2. Turned off wireless (phone) connection.
  3. Removed all Service Books except WebClient (cmime) in -Options\Service Books-
  4. Installed Desktop Manager Software along with download/install of browserboss. ***may require uninstall/install of existing Desktop Manager***
  5. Follow the FAQ steps listed for WAP Gateway access on the BrowserBoss FAQ site.
  6. Begin browserboss (with wireless phone still off) and change BES or MDS Enterprise selection to WAP Gateway ***Important: if WAP selection is not selected you cannot change it again. You must uninstall/reinstall to the BB Handheld.***
  7. Input WAP carrier information (i.e. GatewayIP/APN/PORT) as listed on the BrowserBoss FAQ previously mentioned.

Congratulations, you should now be able to connect to any site via your CELL providers cheap WAP gateway. Good Luck and feel free to email me or post questions. I have not determined whether this program will provide me Internet without a subsciption because I am using their "free 2 week trial". I will keep you updated as to the performance and criticizms I may have in the future. In two weeks I will also have an answer to the subscription requisite.

Good Luck,

This is almost moot, when carriers upgrade their backend to version 4.0 (Rogers just did) full HTML browsing is enabled..

then the browser is also upgraded in the new OS 4.0.. third party browsers will be a thing of the past!

Is that full HTML browsing using only their WAP data service? (i.e. gaining access to the entire web minus some Java site errors without purchasing the more expensive Blackberry service)

FYI I'm connecting to any and all sites that were previously available to my via the additional Blackberry Data add-on + $29.99 with only a standard voice service with the t-zones $4.99 add-on. I do not have the Blackberry service at all. Instead I have just removed the service books that inform the registration server that my device is anything more than a standard WAP enabled cellular device. I can assure you that T-Mobile is not going to allow ResearchInMotion to enable all BB's to turn their $30+ Coporate Cash Cows diminish to $5+ T-Zones text tricks.

I was under the impression that many were facing the inability to access the full web (i.e. HTML &WML) via their add-on Blackberry accounts (i.e. the $20-40 data add-on service). Though I still face the same Java site obstacles, as many others have, I thought it would be useful for all blackberry owners to know they can benefit from all their current bb features without paying for the extrenuous Blackberry plan.

If I am mistaken please let me know. And just a little background info on myself: I am a former employee of T-Mobile and managed to recieve my Blackberry free of charged based on my achievements as "Best of Region" in sales/technical support of this specific line of products. Though I understand there is much I have yet to learn of this fine device, I do have a fairly extensive knowledge/background of it and have spent countless hours doining my own research. It's also helped having direct contact numbers for the local development strategies reps as well as access to Tx3 TSupport if I'm ever really in a bind.

1 question that needs an answer, please respond A.S.A.P.: Will Browser Boss work on phones other than the BlackBerry?

I have a friend who wants an HTML browser for his Nextel i730. He had downloaded REQwireless WebViewer onto his phone from Nextel, but now he can't register it because of REQwireless' stupidity.

EDIT: Nevermind, I looked at their website. BlackBerry ONLY. Also, Browser Boss is NOT free, like I had been led to believe over on HoFo. Damn.

I'm sure it would work fine for browsing, but what of blackberry e-mail? I imagine if this is currently working it will suspend sooner or later.

There's also an Evol who DJ's hardcore techno out of California. That's a common name it seems.
