Default Servicebooks With USB?

Please Login to Remove!

first let me start by saying that i am not new to the blackberry... infact, i am one of the original users (NEXTEL) before they became amazingly popular...

anyways, i have not use one for about a year. i picked up the pearl a couple weeks ago and had issues with it, so i exchanged it out. I do not use a blackberry data plan, because the Email server i use dows not support POP or Forwarding. i have just as fast service with a media package and for alot less, I check my Email with opera mini... since i had to do a 30 exchange, i lost the service books i had on my last one.

to get to my question, is there a way to get the service books onto my blackberry without adding the plan on then removing it?

thanks in advance

I don't beleive the Service Books will help you. Without a blackberry plan there is no email capability.

I could be wrong...

you are able to maintain your Email using a web browser... no matter what they tell you, you can do just about anything with a blackberry, include manage your Email without a BB data plan. its not as convient, however when the normal way of the blackberry does not work for my Email system... there are options. the way i have it set up now is i have alerts sent to my blackberry when i recieve an Email. then i goto the bookmark in opera mini and read/send my Email that way. takes a little longer than the way the blackberry was intended. I knew that i couldnt properly use a BB, i just needed a QWERTY keyboard. since i am familular with the BB, it only seemed right.

there are a couple way to get Email without a blackberry data plan. one is to forward the Emails and the other is to recieve an alert, then check them using any browser on the BB. however, without the servicebooks you cannot even access the web using opera mini. and to unlock the blackberry browser, you also need the data plan. its simple to just call in and add a blackberry data, then to call back once you can access the web, but then that just ties up the lines for the people who have real problems...

No. No Data Plan, no service books.
