Please Login to Remove!

Hey there,

Just received my Blackberry 7510 with Telus. Still trying to learn this thing. Can anyone help me out with a few issues I am having. Namely,

1. where can I get a document detailing all the possible commands you can do on it.

2.For example, I was trying to enter email and I wanted to go to more than 1 person. How do I add additonal email addresses without using the ones in my address book. It would keep going to address book for the 2nd address and the address was not in my adress book.

3. Is the 7510 RIM OS upgradeable. I am currently running 3.6. Can I upgrade the BB to 3.7 or 4.0 and if so how?

4. I have seen postings referring to an internet browser for the BB. How would this work and what software should I get? And does it work on Telus network?

Thanks in advance and look forward to your replies.

Well, you chose the right blackberry right now.

The 7510 has a public MDS, which is fantastic for the purpose of browsers, etc.

You can get the latest version of software here:

https://www.blackberry.com/SoftwareD...ient=dB5bZddMq

Just select the 7510 from the list.

So that answers your question of upgradability.

You can get a REQWireless browser from here:
http://www.blackberryclub.com/downloads.php

Choose ReqWireless Corporate, as you have Public MDS

Short cuts can be learned either here, in the sticky in RIM Software, and many shortcuts can be learned in your user manual.

Default Awesome!!!

Thanks for the quick reply!! You guys are great.

Just ot reiterate here. So I take it I can upgrade the OS on the 7510 with the download you gave me, right?

And the browser (REQBrowser) was not at that link. There were browsers there but they did not specify REQWireless. Are the other ones listed there the REQWireless browser?

WRT the user guide, the guide I recieved does not have instructions on key strokes for available for the RIM. Do you know where I can find online?

Sorry for all the questions but I am getting there.

Thanks. Once again look forward to your reply.

Yes, since you are using Nextel, it should work.

Also, in some cases, you may want to ask Nextel to get a static IP for your Nextel BlackBerry, since that makes things like instant messaging work much better (if you plan to use that).

Default Mark, I am actually on Telus in Canada

Mark,

I am actually on Telus. Should I still be using the Corporate edition?

When using the personal edition I get error specifying http through WAP not supported on this network.

Telus... Hmm... I am not too familiar with how they work, but since they are iDEN too;

Try testing out the corporate edition.

If it does not work, call Telus to ask them about if they can supply a static IP address for your BlackBerry (since Nextel allows that). You need to get further down a phone maze (like Level 2) before you reach someone who knows enough to understand what that request means. Since it makes Internet apps work so much better on the iDEN network, since you can get a different IP during celltower switches, coming back into coverage, or on-the-fly, etc.

(Note: MDS hosting always provides a static IP address by way of the BES server acting as a kind of a NAT ... but I don't think you need to get that far on Telus, if all you need is working internet software on your Telus BlackBerry..)

Default Response to Mark

Hey Mark,

So you are saying I need a static IP to connect to web? You mention that the IP changes from cell to cell. Now will it still do this with a static IP? Or does the static IP allow for constant connection from cell to cell?

Pardon my questions here but this mobile web stuff is new to me.

I am relaying information because I was told by a few Nextel customers that they needed to get a static IP address to have things working better on their network.

This does not apply to Rogers, Verizon, T-Mobile, Bell Mobility, or Cingular ... just to Nextel and possibly Telus (because they use the same kind of network).

Guess uses Telus to my knowledge, so he will chime in to let you know how he got HTML working.
