Hi Guys,

I just took out a new blackberry 8700g from o2 Ireland.

Just wondering if there are any other users out there of this service? Have a few questions.

I am getting very conflicting messages from o2 on what they will/will not let you access.

I'm having trouble getting OperaMini working. I'm getting the common error:3.0.10:80 error? Anybody manage to solve this?

Also having similar network connection problems with google maps.

Main thing anyway is that I want to get my blackberry going for MSN messenger. Anybody have any experiences with what the easiest way to do this with o2 is. I'm also getting conflicting messages as to whether this will cost me anything or not? They are saying that all WAP usage is free but GPRS is not. And others are saying all GPRS usage is free. I don't think its true that all GPRS usage is free. But anybody have any ideas as to what the actual distinction is? What usage is covered and what is not. Since I'm assuming that it all goes via the one access point anyway?

Somebody told me they thought there was more than one access point and that accessing through one was free and the other was not.

Is this true? How can I see in my blackberry what servers it is using? And how can I set up third party apps to use one or the other?

Any ideas from Irish people or those from further afield with similar experiences would be great.

From what I can now tell I don't seem to be able to use any third party programmes to access stuff on the internet. Any ideas?

Dereklander I'm with o2 ireland and own a 8700g. do you have the correct tcp settings on your phone. They should be as follows:
Click options
Click advanced options
Click TCP
and enter the following
APN:open.internet
Username for APN:gprs
Password for APN:gprs
Save the settings

now see if opera works

WAP is free with O2 internet but GPRS isn't. Wap is slow gprs is not. Surfing the web with the above settings uses GPRS. I dont have the O2 blackberry contract. What i actually did is somewhat different and cheaper. Contact me via PM and i'll explain. I dont use msn messenger as i'll wait for a proper RIM approved program. I do use yahoo messenger and google talk RIM approved programs with no problems. I also can use google maps too.

well other than the cost of using the internet there are no extra hidden costs involved in using the above settings
