Default eSpell headache

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I wanted a spell checker for the built in mail program on my BB. I went to Handango and got eSpell. When I tried to install it I first had to install this big program on my computer, then it insisted on intalling eFile in addition to the spell checker and pushed me towards installing a complete office package. I only wanted a spell checker. This is what Handango advertise it as:

"eSpell - device based spellchecker, fully integrated with native BlackBerry e-mail composer."

On top of this I couldn't get it to work with the built in e-mail program on my BB.

Finally, I also started getting e-mail about the full office package. Really annoying when all I wanted was a simple spell checker.

I just wonder, does eSpell work with the built in email program, and can it be installed like other programs without something in addition like this eFile thing I do not want?

I gave up and went and bought LexSpell (free, but I decided to pay the $10) which works great. I am going to try and have Handango refund the other one since it's not what they advertise it to be.

However, if someone here can show me how to use it with what I've got and how to install it without eFile (which our admin says we can't have on our BB's) I will reconsider.

I tried eSpell as well but also followed your route, and purchased LexSpell. It was just easier to configure for me, and does what it needs to do.

I agree that LexSpell is the best, but the way Handango presents eSpell is misleading to say the least! I hope they will refund me the purchase price.
