Data Plan Required?
 
I would possibly like to subscribe to XM Radio for BB as well as the Telenav Navigation. For these things, is a data plan required? I want these things, but don't want/need a data plan. Thanks!

Yes, you need a data plan for both of those applications.

wan3212 06-26-2008 06:09 PM

Shoot, OK I guess I won't be getting them then....Also when does the new firmware for the 8310 OFFICIALLY come out will allow users to take video?

wan3212 06-27-2008 08:55 PM

Anyone????

JEGO82 06-27-2008 08:59 PM

Yes I've seen the thread, but it sounds like it is not very stable. Thats why I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about the official one being out.

Also, could someone give me a quick explanation of what is included?

wifi suplement Data plan
 
Hello All

I just picked up an 8320 and do not have a data plan. I read the FAQ at : What do I need a Data Plan for? - BlackBerryFAQ

I suppose my question is if you can suplement much of the need for a Data Plan with being frequently connected to WiFi?

Are there limits to the functionality of this device when connected to a WAP rather than the Edge network?

I have tons of other questions but I will try to answer them myself first.

THanks in advanced for any assistance.

Without a data plan anything that is not able to use a wireless connection will not work. You will also not have access to BIS email.

As stated above, it IS an official version, released by Vodafone. Rumors that AT&T would release a version last week turned out to be false.

Its an official version that was rushed out. It IS official but does have a few bugs. Its not a bad release for ATT users, though.

Downloaded it, but it makes everything very slow...Is this normal? Also It wont let me delete videos, it tells me they are in use. How do I delete them?

CaptSwerve 06-28-2008 06:17 PM

Try going into your media player, hit the blackberry button, go up to now playing, hit stop, and then back out using the back button and not the end call button. Then try deleting the video.

wan3212 06-28-2008 10:54 PM

^Thanks, that worked. I also got it to become fast again. The problem was I had no more room on my phone, so I just moved some stuff to my 4gig card. Another thing, Telenav maps stopped working with this new firmware. When I try to open it, it says "Uncaught exception:java.lang.NullPointerException"
anyone know what it means?

John Clark 06-28-2008 10:59 PM

Go back and install Docs To Go and that error will go away.

wan3212 06-29-2008 08:50 AM

I don't have enough room :( I can't install apps on the memory card, right? OK So I have to start deleting stuff now then. What are some helpful things to do to free up some space?

NickfromIL 06-29-2008 08:54 AM

That answer is in JC's signature.
