BeamBerry won't install correctly on my phone...
Hey guys, I just tried to install BeamBerry on my Pearl that I just got. I followed all the instructions explicitly and at the very end on my phone it said some sort of Error 0xac0208520394 (I just made up that number, but it had the 0x#### format). The icon showed up on my blackberry's desktop, but when I click on it nothing happens. I uninstalled it, and then reinstalled it. I didn't get the error, but I had the same problem. Also, the second installation was a MUCH MUCH shorter time length, implying that my phone never completely got rid of the program during the first installation. I don't want this leftover crap on my new phone. Does anyone know what I can do? I backed up my phone before the first time I installed BeamBerry, but I'm not really sure if I should go ahead and restore my blackberry (and if so, I don't really even know how to do it). Help please?

Oh upon uninstalling it the second time I got this error, which is what I got when I installed it the first time. "Uncaught exception: ApplicationRegistry. waitFor(0xac3ae76427d17f19) timeout"
What the hell does that mean? Also, I do NOT have a data plan. Is one required for BeamBerry? I just want to view files off my MicroSD card....

Yes, Data is required for BeamBerry to operate--being able to transmit and receive email and data is at the very heart of how BeamBerry operates. You may want to read more about a potential app before you install it.

And btw, you can't view files (pdf, doc, xls) off your microSD card. You'll need to attach them to an email to yourself and view from the attachment.

But you don't have email...

What about the "Documents to Go" program from DataViz? Does that one REQUIRE a data plan too? I thought the whole point of the program(s) was to let you view those file types.

Does DataViz make a BlackBerry version of Documents to Go? If so, you might want to check it out. Last I read, I don't think it was. I have not used it--i honestly don't know if it requires a Data Plan.

Viewing those file types is the point of BeamBerry, but its point is made by sending the file via data connection to BeamBerry for rendering and ultimate viewing.

I believe I answered the question best I know about viewing pdf, doc, xls files on your MicroSD card. Sorry.
