Default No BlackBerry Browser for 7730?

Please Login to Remove!

Well, I recieved my 7730 today (first to arrive of two older school devices I bought), and my first order of business was to get it upgraded to 4.0.2.93 (Cingular load).

Now, normally I would have expected to receive 3 browser configs with my service books (BlackBerry, T-Zones, Internet E-Mail Setup). I only received the latter 2. I tried all of the normal things like soft and hard rebooting, re-registering, etc., but I still only get T-Zones and IES. I can browse the web just fine, but I can't import the bookmarks from my 8700 because they are BlackBerry Browser bookmarks.

Any thoughts?

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the Blackberry Browser connected to the MDS through a BES? I believe you have to have the MDS enabled on the BES and the service books pushed from your IT tech for the Blackberry Browser to be available.

Not in version 4.0+. I have uploaded the absolute latest 4.0 I could find, which happened to be put out a little over a week ago by Cingular for the 7700 series. Anyway, in version 4.0, BlackBerry Browser no longer required MDS, just TCP.

Although, now that I think about it... Cingular only allows the WAP browser from their devices, so maybe I need to try a different load. I'll load someone else's 4.0 package and report back.

Nope.

I double-checked that.

I am a relatively new BES administrator and was wondering if we should even have MDS enabled on our BES. We are running BES 4.0.3.

What reasons would justify having MDS enabled on our server? Is it a security risk?

I don't think there is a security risk, and your users will like you if they are able to browse the web a bit. There are actually advantages to that such as when users are on travel they can check itineraries on the go and such...

The only reason I have it enabled is for testing of remote desktop for blackberry devices. Very cool. I only have it enabled for a few users, but I didn't know many specifics of it, so I figured I would ask. Users should be able to browse the web with the cingular browser regardless, even though that browser pretty much sucks.

I don't think users can browse the web on BES without MDS enabled, but I'm not an admin, so I don't know for sure.

Entirely possible. Perhaps my 8700 thinks it is being replaced? :(

Anyway, It appears not to be OS related. I loaded the latest T-Mobile load, and it still doesn't have it.

I have Cingular on the BIS and I have two browsers, Cingular abd Internet. On my webclient Profiles page I have a button to send the browser service book.

Hope this helps.
