Anyone having any issues with YakOn with an 8700 with the new OS and T-Mo. Made sure the TCP was set to wap.voicemail.com, but I get the error "Could not sign on to MSN after 3 tries...."

I KNOW the username and password is correct, I checked it with the MSN Messenger software I have. Anyone have any other ideas. I contacted Softcentral but thier support is a little slow.

Thanks,
Michael

Hey, I have a question... I first downloaded and executed the initial Valenzuelan version .66... I have not loaded it to my BB. Only expanded it and removed the xml file. It is ready to update my OS, when I open DM, it ask to update.

However, now, I would really rather go with the Chinese version .85. I have it downloaded right now, is all. I have not executed it.

How do I kill that .66 update and not have them both... i need to kill the .66 update ready to run?

Go to windows control, add and remove program and uninstall the software.

Or just install the newer one. It will ignore the old version

Your APN should be set to wap.voicestream.com, not wap.voicemail.com.

So once again, my damned BB failed spectacularly at displaying Chinese despite upgrading. I'm starting to wonder if I should restart with a virgin install (i.e. no restoring of any information). Anybody else out there think that this might resolve my problem of not being able to display Chinese characters?

During the upgrade, are you sure that the Chinese language modules were checked off (i.e. to be installed) during the upgrade? When I upgraded using the Chinese version of 4.2, ironically, these packages were not selected by default, I had to place a check mark in the appropriate boxes. If they were checked off during your installation, one other suggestion I would make is to use desktop manager to uninstall the Chinese language support. Reboot the handheld. Then re-install the Chinese language support modules.

Ya, I selected chinese, both simplified & trad. Interestingly enough, even though I'm not able to view chinese characters in emails, I am able to view chinese characters in text messages. How jacked is that!

Then you didn't install anything. Did you delete the vendor.xml file located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader ?

Default Went back to 4.1

I tried both 4.2 releases and while I didn't have any major issues, two were enough for me to go back to 4.1. 1) Volume was noticably lower on ringtones and alarms and 2) I could not paste in some entry fields in the browser. Not enough good stuff to justify "upgrading" at this point. Speed was also a bit slower with 4.2

yea, I know it won't work but within that string it says the update would be available in about 2 weeks for the 8703. It is now the end of the 2nd week.

Thanks for the reply though

Ooops, that was a typo. It is. Turns out I needed to Download the latest version of YakOn, and now it works fine.

Don't hold your breath based on a rumor. The 4.2 OS for 8700 has been talked about for months and it is just creeeping out now and it is not even on any big carriers in US (eg Cingular).

Default T mobile 8700g on BES

I have an 8700g from my large corporate employer on BES...seems like if I try these upgrades it will totally mess up the device since so much is controlled by my corp IT people??????? Will I have to wait until t mobile official upgrade and for my company to decide to make it a system wide update..if this every happens ????

Also, was playing with a Pearl today and noticed that its Calendar app in the Agenda view had an option to show days with no appointments...does the 4.2 update for the 8700 add this functional feature?

thanks
