re: NewsBerry v1.1 (BWC)
i have assigned the proper WAP settings, and am able to update the feeds, but the final results are mixed - the title and first bits of each feed are shown (as expected), but there is no available link to the actual article.
my 7100t is updated with the latest 188.8.131.52 from t-mo, and i have attempted OTA download and Desktop Manager installation of NB. i have no previous experience with RSS feeds, wireless or PC-based, but i have a basic understanding of it, and know a link to the full article should be available.
on a whim, i attempted an install of the BES/MDS version, which met with some success. i was not prompted to enter WAP settings, and the inital update following the install completed. when reviewing the feeds, i did see a different menu, and this menu now included an option to navigate to the article in full. the app was working as i expected it to, but then it decided it didn't like me.
after adding a feed or three, i attempted an update, but received an error identifying the MDS settings as an issue. i'm not operating via MDS, so that's to be expected, but then why did the first update work?
i have gone through standard trouble-shooting, with installs, uninstalls, resets, update-with-modified-feeds, update-without-modified-feeds, BWC, BES, OTA, Desktop... i'm at a loss.
i have submitted an email to 79bmedia support, and am currently awaiting response. i have used their applications on Palm previously, and have not been dissatisfied. i have considered other RSS readers, but before looking further, i would like to solve this error, or completely disqualify NewsBerry.
while awaiting response, i was hoping to hear from any NB users who have used either version, and how it works for you, especially if you are handling a 7100N. any ideas as to how to correct this, or steps you may have taken to have it function properly are appreciated.
