Default How the ***** do you get started

Please Login to Remove!

I have purchased a Playbook, granted the price was a steal, but my Laptop does not see the device and I cant even proceed on the setup.

My problem is compounded by the fact I'm in St Petersburg Russia, bought the device last week in UK, at present I feel like taking it back on my next visit to UK.

It was bought as an upmarket Ebook, and I feel I've made a gigantic mistake.

Any help out there???

Start by connecting it to a WiFi network. Or you can connect it to your BlackBerry via BlackBerry Bridge.

The initial setup has to be done over the internet either with wifi or using bridge with your BlackBerry as Rambo indicated.
