If you are connected to your corporate network (either on the network directly or via a VPN) then the re-activation will occur automatically. You ALWAYS have to re-activate after upgrading - the issue is whether it is done automatically or whether you need an Enterprise Activation password from the BES Admins.

Default Blackberry Maps

It loaded perfect.
Only one Problem.
When I start Blackberry maps, it says Blackberry Maps is deactivated.
I reinstalled the OS again, and the same message comes.
How can I activate the maps again?

Edit:
I have no Browser! the standard Browser ist missing...
Can anyone help me fix this?



Please Help.

Thanks
Tim

Default Blackberry Maps.

I manually erased the Blackberry Maps from my 8800.
Now I can not get them back on there.
The Browser is working, T-Mobile had to send me the service books again.

How can I get the 4.5 Blackberry maps back on the 8800.
In the desktop Manager, Applications, there are no longer listed there, and the i click add, and I get a error message.

Any one know how?

Greeting
Tim

Tim, if you go back to Application Loader in your Desktop Manager, is BlackBerry Maps listed in the applications, with or without a checkmark in the box.

UNchecked means not loaded. Checking it should load the app. For some of us AT&T - US users, a service book for BB Maps to be enabled is required. I don't know what TMO might be doing in Germany, if similar?

Hi, that is my problem, it is no longer there. With or without a check.
it is totally gone from the list.
i just tried to delete the Service book with the hope that i could see it again in the list.
Not the service book is gone and the option to install..

See. I have just the opposite issue, I don't know BB Maps installed to the device, and everytime I plug into DM, it asks me if I want to load it. I should just delete the COD file from the Java folder in the install directory.

Maybe you need to look there to see if the cod file loaded, or even re-install the OS on your PC?

I hate to ask, do you have to use BBMaps? Here in the US, many of us are beginning to find there are as good and better alternatives.

but they all cost additional fees.
In Germany BB Maps is free and it works...
it would be nice to get this running again.

Anyone wants to comment on the stability or speed? Is it worth installing or should I wait for a later revision?

Thanks

My only issues with this release were in regard to the browser text entry box, and the ability to click on some "send" buttons after text entry.

Speed - great
Stability on this release (referring to EDGE signal stability) - great.

I just updated to this version and my phone keeps restarting about every two minutes. Does anyone have any ideas? It's an AT&T device.

I'm on a BES, previous OS upgrades required me to request an activation from my BES Admin but not this time. I wonder if it has to do with the fact that DM 4.3 is connecting to the BES and recognizes that the PIN associated with my account matches the one of the device connected via USB.

The only thing I noticed it that my calendar has a bunch of double entries. Application loader restored my calendar at the end of the upgrade process then the BES activation reimported my calendar, so pretty much everything is doubled now. It didn't do it with the contacts, notes and todo.

I deleted the vendor theme and I'm stuck with only att themes. Is there a new alx file to unlock themes or do we use the old one?

Just delete the "_VendorID=" entires from the blackberry.alx file.


By the way, I think that removing my microSD card has fixed my reboot problem.

I love you guys......
