Default 7100t + T-Mobile...anyone know how to access ports OTHER than 80?

Please Login to Remove!

Title says it all. Just wondering how I can access ports outside of 80 from the BB browser.

I've heard reports that tmobile allows access if I set my APN to wap.voicestream.com. After doing this, it did in fact allow some TCP apps to function (IE: letting BBToday access the weather), but I still can't access anything outside of port 80.

Everytime I call tmobile they have no clue what I'm talking about. Any ideas?

You'll need another program, the BB browser is quite simply... a browser.

You could download an SSH program or VNC for example if you wish to connect to your computer at home; or IM+ for connecting to instant messengers. Those use ports other than 80.

You can also simply use the blackberry as a modem for your laptop and you'll quickly notice that you indeed do get other ports.

My guess is you were trying to FTP or for some reason trying to view webpages on port 8080 or so, trough the BB browser. Thats a software issue, not a T-Mobile issue.

ah i see. well then...any suggestions for a browser that can connect to other ports? I'm still using HTTP, but yes, I'm looking to connect to sites on 8080, 5000, etc etc.

FINALLY! New 3rd party HTML web browser(s)! ^_^

Theres a link for alternative browsers; though I have never used anything but the built in BB browser, so I cant vouch if they support other ports. I would think that at least one of them would though.
