| | BB Browser working with MediaNet UNLIMTED, without BES/BIS
Please Login to Remove!
So I bought a refurb Curve 8310 from AT&T. Switched the sim into a Nokia 2610 and then enabled MediaNet UNLIMITED $15 plan (I did not have any data plan b4 this), and then popped the sim back into the Curve. I've been using it for a week or so using Opera Mini and GMail since I figured I couldn't use BB Browser and download OTA.
So today I clicked on a link for an OTA only BB theme and...IT WORKED! I was browsing through Opera Mini and then it directed me to the BB Browser and completely downloaded and installed the theme.
I did some research and it seems that people who usually do not have BIS/BES plan cannot download OTA because the browser doesn't work at all but for some reason my browser works completely.
I know of people who have been using a blackberry with the MediaNET Unlimited plan for months and AT&T hasn't found out but I have never seen a BB with enabled BB Browser without BIS/BES.
I don't want to abuse this feature and let AT&T figure out that I am using a blackberry, but I would like to use Push E-mail if I can. Should I just use the BB Browser to OTA download and use Opera mini + Gmail for everything else or should I use the BB Browser for OTA, use Opera for browsing, AND use Blackberry Push E-Mail for my e-mail.
I don't even know how to set up push e-mail so I haven't even attempted, I figured I'd ask here first.
