Default Getting around Bell Mobility with a 7250

Please Login to Remove!

I just bought a used 7250 and Im trying to access the interweb. Unfortunately Im on the Bell Mobility network and they are the worst provider out there.

I have tried to find a few ways to do it, but in all these posts and all these forums there are never step by step instructions for the first time user.

Where do I put in the WAP settings?

I don't have TCP as an options under "options" so what do I do now?

I dont have a BES and I don't plan on getting a data plan.

Is there anything I can do to even use an IM program?


Thanks for all the help!

There are very definately step by step instructions!
What are the TCP and APN settings? - BlackBerryFAQ
(Options > Advanced > TCP)

First resort (not the last) check the FAQs! AND don't be afraid to ask, just as you did. We are a friendly helpful Forum.

Good luck, and welcome to the forums.

I don't know if anyone actually reads the information they give before they post it but nowhere on that page does it say anything about Bell Mobility.


So, if you read this and you are going to try to give a solution.....please make sure it includes a solution for the BELL MOBILITY NETWORK.

Also, I know this could be solved by getting a data plan. I don't want to get one. Bell is the worst provider already and sucks my money out of my bank account faster than I can count. I don't want to give them anymore money. I need a solution to this problem. Not multiple people telling me to get a data plan.

So, please.......solutions only.

Kellan, quite the unappreciative sort, eh?

If you read that page (but you actually need to read it) you will see the portion that reads:
"Carrier specific APN/TCP settings"
and
"Other carrier's settings"

And, you will actually need to click on those links to read the information needed for Bell Mobility. You will see on both it says that TCP will NOT work on Bell Mobility. That is one solution. It won't work.

If you read further, you will note there are settings shown for Bell Mobility. Try those, as those TCP settings shown MAY BE the second solution. You will need to determine that.

Now, I enjoy helping users find solutions to their BlackBerry problems, such as yours. I enjoy doing so with a passion. If you come back to post again here with an unappreciative attitude, you will be on a vacation, and can find another Forum to spend your valuable time.

Oh, and to add, thirdly, since you are choosing NOT to have a BlackBerry Data Plan, it will probably never work. It is a shot in the dark, some get TCP to work without a Data Plan, some never do, on Bell Mobility. Some have gotten IM+ to work.

I apologize for being a little short.

Reading everything on this site, I still can't find where to enter the WAP settings. There is no TCP option on my BB and all I read on here is "put this or that in as your settings" where do I put it all in?


"i figured out Bell Mobility's settings by "hacking" together some settings off the main list of providers, and VOILA!! it works now in WAP version.

WAP Gateway: 207.236.197.199
WAP Gateway Port: 9203
WAP APN: internet.com <---- apparently this _IS_ now required and cannot be blank!

once i typed this in and clicked "trial" my services popped up after a short delay!!"

I saw this....WHERE DO YOU ENTER IT? Im so lost and getting frustrated.

Please help.

I don't think its possible to surf the internet on Bell w/out a Data Plan, which sucks since Bell does offer an unlimited browsing option for $10/mo.

I don't think it is possible yet either. In the TCP settings of the 8830, there is only APN and username/pass. I have a data plan so I can't try out the TCP, but would love to get other settings to work as I have unlimited internet browsing in my plan for free. Unfortunately, for now atleast, Bell has been one step ahead.
