Default BIS Addresses

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way for me to add email accounts from my Sprint BIS account to my AT&T BIS Account?
Both my Sprint and AT&T phones are also on BES.
Example: ********@sprint.blackberry.net to my AT&T *****@att.blackberry.net?

Also, any idea why Verizon disables the GPS in 8830's?

I think forward is the only option. But you can always try it and see what happens.

I do not recommend using the carrier addresses however. You are opening yourself up for SPAM as they are unfiltered and since you don't own them you can't take them with you when you change carriers and they are subject to change at any time. Plus you can only view email to hose account on the BB, so in case of a BB outage you are out of luck.

Officially, Verizon states that they are concerned about security. Verizon's approach to GPS uses both the GPS chip and some additional information that's acquired via the network. While their VZ Navigator software encrypts, they don't trust third party programs.

Or, Verizon is being greedy.

Your choice.

Bottom line is that Verizon doesn't allow third party GPS on Blackberry devices on their network. There is a class action suit about this, but my opinion is that the outcome will be that Verizon will have to clearly state in their ads that these phones are GPS enabled ONLY for E911 and VZN. I base this on past court decisions about Verizon disabling certain Bluetooth profiles.

If you want GPS on your BB, either pay Verizon for VZN or switch to a carrier that allows it. Or, see recent posts about using Garmin's new "network free" offering and using it with Verizon and a GPS puck.
