Default Urgent Help!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Just bought a Blackberry 8310 Curve today and I'm unable to connect it with my laptop. I've installed the software (Desktop Manager) and it's still not recognising no matter what I do

Also, I've installed Google Maps, Google Mail and Google Sync but on each application it says "this programme requires a working data connection"

But yet I'm able to connect to the mobile internet fine. Is it that I have to get the Enterprise Server pin number for these to work?

Many Thanks

Do you have a BB data plan or just a regular data plan? You need the BB data for Google Sync and Google Maps. DM might also be looking for it on the initial start up.

I've spoken to Vodafone and the cheapest I can get all the Blackberry services for is £7.50 a month.

Is this the same with the iPhone and the Google Android phone where you have to pay extra to use google services and emails etc... ?

Also, if I go on Vodafone live the msn hotmail website is blocked..........is this done on purpose by Blackberry?

All of that sounds like a carrier issue. I dont know why they would block it but at least here in the US (I'm with Tmobile), we have no restrictions whatsoever.

Whenever I try to access the hotmail website address I get the following error

"WML Converter was unable to convert the data. Only page zero is supported"



Any ideas what it could be?
