Hi, I've just hooked my curve 9300 up with a PAYG President's choice data plan, the $35 one, with the data add-on.
Its PC telecom dot ca, if you want to check it out.
This company uses Bell's network but don't really support blackberry, or use BIS... but my browser works and I can check gmail this way.
I would like to know, is there any way I can get a better gmail service.. I would like to get some kind of a notification when I get a new email, for example. Also, can I get gtalk at all? Right now if I try to use the app I just get an error message saying the phone isn't set up for the app to work. I don't use BBM so not bothered about that.
I've been messing with this phone for a couple days, and originally app world would work... now it won't, hehe, but I wiped the phone etc about 10 times before I realised why stuff wouldn't work
The other thing is, I like to geocache with my phone- I used to get really good accuracy with the GPS before, when I had it on a Rogers blackberry plan. Is there any way I can still use the phone for GPS maps/geocaching? The app I used before is blackstar.
I don't really want to change plans/companies as my husband is on the same network, and we get a really good deal, can call each other for free etc. Just trying to get maximum use out of this blackberry, on a normal data plan.
