Re: BB 10 coming to China ?

Hi, what do you mean?
I think they don't even know what is the message in this case.

Re: BB 10 coming to China ?

Actually, I now read that BB 10 might NOT come to China at all!

"Speaking of Asia BlackBerry's plans for a China launch are still unclear. We asked about specifics at the launch event last week...

BB 10 coming to China ?

I'm a big fan of BB. Currently living in Beijing, China.

I have two questions:

1. Does the BB Z10 going to be sold in China? Is it going to be official or not?

2. Would I need to pay extra money...

Re: Gmail application won't connect

1. As I said before, I do not thoroughly understand the technology behind the BB phone. Hence, I cannot positively conclude that forcing clients to pay for an existing functionality is indeed a rouse...

Re: Gmail application won't connect

I don't know what is "BlackBerry apn", but if you are correct, then there must be a way to use Gmail, or similar email applications *even without the service plan*. Because, there is no incentive for...

Re: Gmail application won't connect

Indeed, you are correct. I bought my BB in the far east, and I use it there; this is certainly something the vendors don't tell you here.

Re: Gmail application won't connect

The analogy is wrong. A gasoline is an existing asset that you have to get into your car. You have to purchase it. Here, as far as I understand the technology, some company deliberately blocks AN...

Re: Gmail application won't connect

It is different, because I already paid for the network on my sim card and my call/data time. I just don't have a plan because of coincidental reasons.
So it's more like buying a computer, then an...

Re: Gmail application won't connect

To Mr. Zaksdad,

1. The practical normative answer: Because I paid a lot of money for this phone, *independently* of any phone company. Hence, it is highly unethical to limit deliberately a simple...

Re: Blackberry with/without data-plan only for EMAILS

OK, thanks.
Can you elaborate more on how to uninstall the browser from DM?

Re: Blackberry with/without data-plan only for EMAILS

Thanks a lot.

1. So can I ask for a slower connection from my carrier (sorry, but I don't know what is EDGE or GPRS...)?

2. How do I uninstall the browser then (you cannot uncheck it when...

Blackberry with/without data-plan only for EMAILS

Hi,

I own a BB9700. I live in the far east currently, and so it's hard to get a data plan here.

My requests might be unique, and may cause some people to raise their eyebrows:

I would like to...

Re: Gmail application won't connect

Thanks. This is indeed possible.

I think this is a quite sad state of affairs that RIM or the carriers force clients to have a service plan in order to access this simple functionality.

Re: Gmail application won't connect

Thanks for the note, but as I wrote above, I used the gmail application before *without* a data plan.
I think this is the whole point of the Gmail application. You don't use the OS built-in...

I downloaded gmail application to be able to deal with my gmail account.

Thanks again!

All Languages would be fine.
Do you have a link explaining how to install the OS?

Re: Help! I'm going crazy. Really.

Thanks again.
I saw these Sticky posts, but they didn't seem to help: I want to add Hebrew to my BB. (I already have Chinese on it.)

Re: Help! I'm going crazy. Really.

Hi, Thanks for the help!

DM is version 6.0
OS is version 5.0.0.862.

How can I update my OS? I think I should do it from the DM. But as I said, I don't see a way how to do it.

Help! I'm going crazy. Really.

Just bought a new BB 9700. Try to add an input language to it.
Just can't make it.
The problem is that I think my Desktop Manager is not full, or not well configured, so all suggestions I've read on...
