Default Help me understand blackberry tech for a newbie, please!

Just purchased my new Blackberry with Verizon Wireless and trying to understand how it works.

I basically want to run a Web Browser (Regular and WAP), an instant messager like MSN and AIM and possibly other utilities like perhaps ftp and telnet.

What is MDS and do I need it to run these applications?

How do i know if it is enable or my Blackberry supports it?

What is the Blackberry Enterprise Server and do I need it to run these applications?

If I do need these? Why can't I just be my own TCPIP client and be directly on the internet?


Sorry for all the generic questions, but just trying to understand how my device works.

If you've got rim's OS4, it has a real TCP/IP stack.

Unfortunately, that won't work for 7750's.

Unfortunately, 7750 doesn't include a TCP/IP stack .... CDMA BlackBerries do not have a TCP/IP stack. The 7750 is also much slower than devices such as 7290 (the best BlackBerry, IMHO).

You will need to get a BES/MDS hosting service which costs about $10-$25 extra per month from a third party. This will "add" the equivalent of a TCP/IP stack to your Verizon 7750.

Alternatively, you can switch to Cingular or another service, add their $5 data plan, and get TCP/IP included, and also get a much better BlackBerry as a result. (However, Verizon may have better reception in your area, although Cingular coverage has improved significantly since 2 years ago)

When I do get a BES Hosting Service, and they activate me, how do I configure BES on my blackberry?
