Yesterday I talked a T-Mobile rep into enabling the legendary, "BlackBerry Voice Addon" (BlackBerry Feature Enabler) with my grandfathered T-Zones plan. (What am I talking about?
) If you guys are interested in how I did this, I could make a post detailing all the information I gained from that.
My T-Mobile BlackBerry Pearl 8100 is now clearly connected to an EDGE network. The GMail application now works. I can send and receive picture messages. Google Maps now works. "t-zones" will go to any web page (though I think it did before). There is now an option to "Download Instant Messaging" which will install the OZ client.
However, some things are still not working. Any help would be appreciated: Opera Mini
When I click on Opera Mini (I installed it from the Desktop Manager), it says "installing..." for a long time with a status bar, then displays: Failed to connect to the Internet.
Go to operamini.com/help with your desktop browser or contact your service provider for internet settings. Google Talk
After entering my username/password and choosing "Sign In...", Google Talk displays the rather vague: Service not enabled for this handheld. Set up E-mail
There is still no option for me to "Set up E-mail". My internet connection is at least semi-valid - what do I need to cheat and get e-mail running on my BlackBerry properly?
Are these separate issues, or related? I have input the "wap.voicestream.com" under "Settings->Advanced Options->TCP" - should I remove it now that I have the Addon? Is Google Talk simply not supported on the 8100/Pearl? How does the BlackBerry decide whether to give me the option of setting up an e-mail address?
Thanks in advance.
