I'd rather not fudge around with my service books to see who gives me what (atleast not until the weekend -- got a lot on the go this week).
Anyone know anything about this that could shed some light. And sorry if this is old news, I did a search and didn't come up with anything similar.
no, it's not news to anyone.. unless you weren't aware that 4.0 came out for cdma BBs back in december.. it's one extra browser(that 4.0 was anticipated for), and it's sluggish, making it not so appealing after all.. the BES browser has been reported as a faster browser, so you're not missing all that much.. as for a substitute for MDS, no, TCP/IP stack is not available for CDMA carriers' BBs, so don't drop your MDS provider.. your apps like IMs and SSH clients will not work if you drop your MDS service...
i use the new browser only to download images to my BB for screensavers, etc.. or if i'm reallly stuck somewhere with nothing to do..
