This is a question for Mark...

Quote:
"Configure your BlackBerry & Your Carrier
On the BlackBerry handheld, go to Options -> TCP
There is a new option in BlackBerryOS 3.8 and later. Then fill in APN with the provided APN listead in the below post, that is appropriate for your carrier. If no username or password is provided, leave these blank. If only a username is provided, then leave in the password. Also, ignore the Gateway IP address, unless your Blackberry specifically has a textbox to enter the IP address in. "APN" means "Access Point Name". Once you have saved the APN information, you should reboot your BlackBerry by removing and reinserting the battery."
Mark, if I don't have the Blackberry unlimited plan or call Cingular to have them add the line items you discussed in your FAQ, then will configuring the TCP like you described still work to give me increased browsing capabilities?

You will probably have to call Cingular to get this to work. You'll want the unlimited plan if you want to do more than a little surfing. You may find that the Cingular reps can't/won't do this, and are likely to do it incorrectly when they try to help.

After spending over 12 hours on the phone with Cingular, I gave up. Some have been luckier than I, but cingular does not like to enable APN without some kind of fee, and I've never been able to figure out what that fee is.

You may be able to get this done, but you will waste a lot of time doing it.

I went with the low-stress solution of a hosted BES (link2exchange). I feel much better now.
