1. How do I transfer my wallpaper/ringtone from Nokia to BB? I am able to download the wallpaper from Nokia to my PC but cannot download the ringtones to my PC. It says copyright protected. I do have some free ringtones in my PC, but I have not figure out how to upload them to the BB yet. Any hint?
2. I am able to connect my BB to my Wifi router. In the top right corner, there is icon WiFi-UMA. However I am not able go to the internet. I open the browser, goto www dot yahoo dot com, and then BB says I am allowed to access to that website!!! Do I need to purchase any special service from TMobile to get to internet? I assume not because my BB is already connected to my rounter/Internet... I could be wrong. Please advice.
3. From Option/Status/About it says "v188.8.131.52 platform 184.108.40.206" What does it mean? Is it the OS version? What the benefit to upgrade the newer OS version, which I saw in this forum?
Thanks a lot.
1. Download Desktop Manager (http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/desktop/);
it will allow you to add media to your device from your computer.
2. Your device isn't connecting to the internet because you don't have a BlackBerry plan. You will need one in order to fully utilize your BlackBerry. You can add one to your plan with T-Mobile for $19.99/month.
3. Yes, what you are seeing is the version of the BlackBerry operating system installed on your phone. Upgrading would give you additional features such as a video camera and HTML email. Upgrading has both advantages and disadvantages so do your research before hand.
