Default Auxiliary keyboard

Please Login to Remove!

I am looking for a keyboard to use with my 8703. I am on a BES, am not allowed to connect the blackberry to a computer, but am allowed to download software over the air. I would prefer to have a bluetooth connection if possible, but would take a hard-wired if that's the only way I can go. Thoughts? Thanks.

The bluetooth keyboards require new policy to be pushed to your device. Likely if you are restricted from connecting to a computer you are not going to be able to connect a bluetooth keyboard either.

Talk to your IT department about the BT keyboards and see if there is one they support. They need to open the firewall/permissions for "keystroke injection."

Default Keyboard

Hi, I use a Bluetooth Keyboard that works over the bluetooth protocol. It works well and I have no conection problems. You can download the needed software on your handset via wap. Have a look at the following site Freedom Input Ltd - Home

Are you connected to a BES? The original poster is on a BES which creates an issue because it blocks the necessary keystroke injection required for the keyboard to work. If on a BES you will likely need help from your BES Admin to get it working.


Also, Freedom's drivers won't work without a registration code that is printed in the documentation of their keyboard. You have to purchase a license to use their drivers on another keyboard.
