perhaps just a simple one but....
what exactly is a service book? how do i know if I need them? where do i get them?

Lo, and there was in the east a FAQ!
BlackBerry Glossary - BlackBerryFAQ

sorry, I looked there first but obviously not hard enough.

Thank you

cg59 12-13-2007 04:31 PM

where can i see a list of service books? Is there such a thing?

JSanders 12-13-2007 04:44 PM

In your BB... Options > Advanced > Service Books.

I have not seen a list elsewhere.

can I use service books from different carriers?

JSanders 12-13-2007 05:02 PM

You will only get the service books from the carrier with which you have a BIS or BES service. That is, if you are on AT&T, you will get AT&T's service books, there is no way for you to get service books from Tmobile.

Is there something you are trying to do, that you have not asked the question for?

cg59 12-13-2007 05:04 PM

Not necessarily, rather i was wondering if i could get more applications other than what was offered by my carrier. Just looking for ways to upgrade my device.

JSanders 12-13-2007 05:05 PM

Applications? yea, all over, look in our Aftermarket Software section here, as well as the FAQ site, Third Party Applications link. You don't need service books.

Thank you very much. I am just getting my feet wet here. i hope to be helpfuland more Pro-active as i learn more.
Thanks again, this is a great site!
