Default just got the 7250

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all I finally recieved my 7250. I just did an ESN swap and its working. Couple questions if I may....

Theres an enterprise activation icon on the deskop. Im not going to be using BES or BB data plan I just got normal evdo data so do I do anything with this?


Also is there a way to have the backlight on when you press any keys?

I tried searching google and this forum for these answer but was unable to locate them.

thanks guys.

Two very commonly asked (and answered) questions...

1 - Hide the Enterprise Icon; press the ALT key and press the trackwheel - a menu with "Hide Application" will appear.

2 - Search for BBLight and download it....

if I sign up for BB data plan for a month to get the services books then cancel it and just use EVDO will I be able to have the browser on the main page and use google talk.

I am assuming once I sign up for BB data plan all the service books get downloaded.

The minute you cancel the BB data plan you will lose EVERYTHING except voice and SMS.

In order to install programs on the BB, it MAY be necessary to also install the handheld OS software onto your PC. If you are going to download programs over the air (OTA) you should be OK.
