Default Few questions from a 1st time blackberry (8800) user

Please Login to Remove!

Hi

I use a hosted exchange server ($6.99 a /mo @ 1and1.com) which is a extremely cost effective means of keeping my email/contacts/tasks/calendar synced with my desktop, laptop & phone

I have a lot of experience with palm os & winmo over the years but the 8800 I picked up today is the 1st blackberry ive ever used so it is taking some getting used to

What I can't find on the blackberry is where do I enter the exchange info? On the past 2 WM phones I used (the tytn & htc 4350) all I have to do is enter in the exchange login and it automatically updates everything

Right now I have the desktop redirector running but this doesnt seem to do what I want because its been running for hours and the blackberry is still not up to date, theres always items in the "pending to device". Does the desktop replicator do the contacts/tasks/calendar as well or only email?

so my question is, is the blackberry compatible w/ exchange servers or does it need to be a blackberry enterprise server ?

if someone could point me in the right direction itd be much appreciated

The BB is quite compatible with Exchange. If you are wanting wireless sync for all your PIM info then the BES is the route for you. Check out the hosted BES services such as ExchangeMyMail.com.

You're going to need a hosted BES if you want to wirelessly sync PIM data.

***EDIT***

I'm too slow

Thanks!

Just signed up with exchangemymail


I have another question, I setup my blackberry email addy and I'm able to receive the emails on the blackberry (almost instantly ) but when I click to reply to the email it says " No message services configured. You will only be able to Save Draft "

I already added the email through the setup email app so I figured everything would be done??

Your device is missing the appropriate service books. You need to check the provisioning with your carrier. Have you paid for a BES plan, not a BIS plan, as to use a hosted BES solution you need to pay more $$$ per month...

If that's all good then check with EMM and get them to resend your service books..

Hi, thanks for the help

What is EMM and who do I speak with to send service books? I assume this is something cingular does?

Ok, got it, after I clicked "send service books" in the setup email I can now reply w/ the blackberry email

My last 2 issues are I can't connect to medianet (but can connect to the browser), and the none of the AIM apps ive tried stay connected for more than 10 minutes

Yes, I've got the same question about MediaNet. What is it, and why can I not connect to it? I'm a long time convert from the Palm world, and the BB BIS/BES world is a little confusing.

I'm on a company BES, and email/contacts/etc are working great. I can surf the web using "internet", but cannot use MediaNet.

Also, in Advance/TCP. What's the APN used for? I can set it to any number of things (including random typos), and my connectivity does not seem to be affected.
