How About a "Will Not Do Section"
How about details on what a specific model will not do. Examples:

8830 does not do generation or editing of Microsoft documents without third party software.

8830 does not allow for receiving emails of media and playing videos or music attachments.

8830 does not allow for streaming video or audio.

I think you get the idea.

Time for some Jungle Lunch!

Sorry, Tboltram, those are not Frequently Asked Questions.

Don't you get the idea?

Most users don't "frequently ask" what will my BB not do?

Well that's because the BB does everything.... :)

My suggestion was made after reading the threads on this and other forums and wondering if a list of what the BBs will not do would be helpful. This is assuming that the reader knows to check the FAQs or search first.

By the way I assume that your iPhone is hacked as you are on T-Mobile. How does it work? LOL

JSanders 08-27-2007 08:20 AM

Odd, I haven't seen those questions posed here, "Please tell me what my BB will NOT do?" You may have seen that, but I really don't read every post on here, but when some issue or question is posted continuously, we do often notice it. That is not one.

A Bit of Clarification

1. SMS messages no longer than 160 characters, I see threads on this.
2. You cannot use the media card as general purpose storage, I see threads on this.
3. You cannot print directly to a regular printer, I have seen threads on this.

I may have not been clear as to my intent, but this should make the intention or suggestion a little clearer.

Your forum is a great service and I appreciate the work you put into it. Where else can one get education and enertainment in the same location!

JSanders 08-27-2007 10:17 AM

Thanks, I understand. Good general suggestions. Most of those are really across the board BlackBerry use restrictions, or like the SMS, limited by the carrier on ANY cell phone. Some carriers vary on the SMS 160 character count. Likewise, I use my Media card for general purpose storage, I have a folder on the micro SD card with some personal files I could need in a pinch, which are not viewable at all on the BB, only on a PC.

Thanks, the FAQ site needs additions and new subjects are added to it almost every day (I know I added 3-4 in the past three days). All suggestions are welcome.

A section on PIN messaging. All the ins and outs, and the fact that posting your PIN in your profile won't result in anything more sinister than receiving unsolicited messages.

JSanders 08-27-2007 10:49 AM

Thanks. Did you see this: ( I will add your suggestions).

Kris, I have some documentation that I'll post (or give to you to post). I need to sort it out first, remove some specifics, etc. It may be updated information to what's already there.
