Default 7250 Connectivity Problems

Please Login to Remove!

hi, i'm on a 7250 with Bell, and i cannot figure this out.

pretty much, any 3rd party program that doesn't come with a service book like the google products do, and tries to access the internet, can't. the exception is stuff like berry 411 which is more of a browser extension than anything.

same thing happens every time, like the most recent one when i wanted to try out Opera Mini.

prompts me for http connection allow, i say yes, connecting... connecting.. connecting.. timed out, sry.

is there anything that can alleviate this?

as a side note, i'm not on BES, i just have a BIS account if that has anything to do with it.

Each software will be different. See if you can find configurations for those apps which work with BIS.

Make sure your BELL account is set up correctly, although it sounds like it is.

Bell does not enable full MDS (unlike most other Blackberry carriers).

To access 3rd party apps (that don't have their own service book), you'll need BES hosting.

Yes I just got off the phone with a really cool data support guy. As he put it the problem stems with Bell.

You see, unlike other providers (example Rogers) Bell once they receive the phones from Blackberry set provisions up in terms of connecting to the network. By doing this they claims it saves prople from burning out phones by using software not compatiable with their phone and keeps the network secure.

Having said that what they fail to tell you when joining or signing up is that this also stops you from using programs like opera mini which I have been dying to use as eBay and Ticketmaster and other site (becoming very common) use heavy scripting / Java which out default WEP and Internet Browsers simply can not handle.

So they do give us an update higher then 4.1 on the blackberry and they dont let us use our on software.

Do you feel a little controlled?

With a $500+ bill a month I am starting to question my loyalty.

Amen!
