View Full Version : BB 8700c Spell Checker & Apps on BB 8700c

06-02-2006, 08:05 AM
The partners in our firm recently purchased BB 8700c's and had an engineer come in to setup/configure a BES server for us.

I am not an engineer and am extremely boggled down with work. I am hoping that someone will:
1) not be offended by my asking your advice with the below 2 items.
2) be kind enough to help/offer your advice on the below 2 items.

Thank you very much for any assistance/input you may be able to offer.

How do I do spell check with the BB 8700c?

Spell Check
The BlackBerry does not have a Spell Check feature. However, there is an auto text feature that detects and corrects common typos.
Spell Check is one of the features available through MetaMessage.

Also, eSpell

How does the dynocorp product differ from the metamessage application?
Which is better?

Do we currently have Word, Excel, Adobe, Power Point capability on the BB 8700c? I checked my device, and it does not appear so. I frequently get attachments in all of these formats that I would like to be able to view on the BB. This third party application also has spell check. It's only $199, and I have no problem paying that cost myself so long as you can install it and can check out the product first to be sure it's a good one (and to be sure there's not something better out there). Let me know. Thanks.

With BES properly configured you can view all those attachments without dynoplex. I prefer bbSpell, and you can see notes on it on my tips page for spell checkers.

I've only used the espell on my bb devices and I was satisfied and never even looked at using a different application. My suggestion is to test each version and get the one that fits your personal preference.

Consider me a fan of eSpell also. Device-based (no data communication with servers) and it works very well. It also allows one to create a user dictionary.

eSpell is real good
