"Is still a couple of months away." According to the RIM rep I spoke with today.

Lame.

I really wish they would get it in gear with this project.

Well, I decided to move my Blackberry over to T-Mobile.

I'm sick of the way Cingular treats its Berry users.


Anyone want an unlocked 8700c?

The Cingular delay with BIS 2.0 is disappointing. I'm seriously considereing moving my data to T Mobile.

Cingular didn't convert yet that's why I mentioned delay in my earlier post.

Thank god, the haven't, from everything I've read, the have totally crippled the capability to manage messages. You can "Manage multiple accounts", i.e. Receive/send from multiple accounts, but you can not manage the emails in those accounts. I purchased my BB strictly for having an email address that could be used for maintainig rapid contact with a limited set of my correspondents, those that I really have a need for instant communications when they have something for me.

I use folders to categorize and simplify the mangement of the different subjects in these messages. I keep only what I call active emails in my message list. Once taken care of, they are filed. This keeps my message list short and useable. I also occasionally have the need to refer to these filed emails and their attachments for much passed the 30 day limit.

People have suggested that I use a hosted BES, but I find BIS 1.8 to be highly satisfactory, and can't see the advantage of paying another $20 a month for something I have now.

I wonder if RIM is doing this to reduce the cost of adding so many Non-BES clients by not having to increase the siz of their server farm and relying on Yahoo and all the other ISPs.

Just my $0.02

Looks like it's getting close...

I was changing setting's on my boss's Verizon bberry, and I noticed they have upgraded to the new BIS!! The old link for VZW was:

https://webclient.blackberry.net/Web...w.jsp?site=vzw

and that not forwards to:

https://bis.na.blackberry.com/html?brand=vzw

Soooo... I put "cingular" in place of "vzw" like so:

https://bis.na.blackberry.com/html?brand=cingular

Check out the link and if you know HTML, check outthe source code. There are some references to T-Mobile files as well as Cingular files, and some Javascript near the top that states "NOT YET IMPLEMENTED".

Take it for what it's worth....

Yeah, I shouldn't have said that.

Just for the curious, I'm not selling it, the wife wants it.

doesn't mean anything... check out:

bis.na.blackberry.com/html?brand=blah
bis.na.blackberry.com/html?brand=yourewrong
bis.na.blackberry.com/html?brand=madeupname

its just CGI...it takes any "brand" and if it has it in its database it fills in the proper images. if not..you just get missing images and broken links.

Nice try though.

Ah well, like I said, take it for what it's worth, and I guess it wasn't worth anything..
