First off, I have been reading these forums for almost a week now and have tried searching for an answer to my problem but have been as yet unsuccesful. I feel like such a huge newbie idiot drowning in a sea of information that is so close to what I am used to and yet so very different.
That said, I'm having trouble getting third party applications to load OTA or even run properly once they have been installed via the desktop manager. I've tried a ton of the different midlets in other threads and always get a file size of 0 which leads to a 907. I figured this might be because I am not using MDS so I needed to get TCP/IP setup.
I have a 7100t and just upgraded it to BBOS 4.0. I am running through tmobile with the blackberry addon to my voice plan. I have setup the APN as wap.voicestream.com and have tried my username for both the tmobile website as well as the one I used for my tmo.blackberry.net email. Nothing seems to change either way.
I called the tmo wireless data group and they were absolutely zero help
and in fact asked me where I got the information for the APN and started badgering me until I could tactfully slip out of the conversation and end the call.
I am at my wits end with this and really want to be able to use my blackberry as I do all of my other geektoys, as a power user. I am a developer and really want to see what this is capable before I start playing with writing applications for it.
Also, I looked at ramble IM today but noticed that it requires MDS. Does this mean it will work with MDS only or would having TCP/IP setup bypass this requirement? I'm still trying to differentiate between all of this new terminology.
Thanks in advance!
