Default Noob in need of answers for some basic stuff...

Please Login to Remove!

hello, i recently bought a blackberry 8700c in bulgaria under the service of vodaphone,...
1. ...but it turned out that the device doesn't support cyrilic encoding (cp 1251), which kinda negates half of its functionality, cause i receive cyrilic e-mails mostly... I called the local wireless network provider (vodaphone's protege here in Bulgaria) and they nicely explained that in order to read cp1251 fo now, the only way is to install the multifunctional enterprise blackberry server, called BES, which of course i cant do... I asked also: "well, is there a way to modify the firmware then...?" and they explained that NO, but even if i do the warranty will go to hell. So what is that all about. "There isn't any way, BUT if I very accidentally DO upgrade the firmware, it will result in void of warranty. So i don't care, i want to install anything that will make my blackberry read CP1251... pls help.
2. i have a gmail account set up on my bb, everytime i send email only from gmail, i recieve the email i just sent back to me, as i wrote to the senders field, not only the recipients address but also my own, which i didn't... ? i am sure everyone here that uses gmail, knows about this... this is true only for gmail accounts

10x in advance

Read the Sticky Note at the top of General Discussion Forum...

HOW-TO: Prevent G-mail "Sent Items" from being sent to your handheld.

You would do well to read through many of the sticky notes at the top of the forums and the Blackberry FAQ forurm as well...

I can't help you with the first matter, good luck.

Maybe try hosted BES for #1? Check with the providers and see if they can accommodate you...

For #1, try this URL: Почтовый декодер from blackberry.

You will need cut and paste email text from email to the form in that Web page, it will convert it to readable text.
Not very useful for hundreds emails a day, but if you need to read just few that can work.

Also, tell your friends email you in UNICODE. Cyrillic in UNICODE works just fine on blackberry. It is simple configuration setting in Outlook Express to make it send emails in UNICODE. 'Big' Outlook does it by default.

Finally, get back to MTel and make them open ticket with RIM for that. If they want to sell devices in cyrillic country they should know that people want to read emails in cyrillic there.
