Default Free push services for 8700c?

Please Login to Remove!

I have not done much exploring with my 8700c, but I'm now trying to figure out whether there are free push services available and where I can find those. I have read messages about you need the Blackberry Browser, which I have. I also have Internet Browser and Cingular Browser (I have Cingular service). By mistake I downloaded Newsclip the other day and the BB forum helped me figure out how to delete it (I didn't realize there was a fee for it). Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance. Keep in mind that I'm really new at this!

your free bis services only come form Cingular your provider or use the desktop redirecter but your computer must be on 24/7

If you're referring to browser push services they're listed in your browser bookmarks page under Browser Channels. Is Newsclip a browser push channel or an app?

I believe Weather is the only push services now. On your internet browser (on the BB) open up the home page and click on Push Services.

You'll actually have to use the internet browser not the BB browser for push services.

The address is mobile.blackberry.com
