Default MTNL config problem

Please Login to Remove!

hi

i recently bought a blackberry bold 9700. I do not intend to buy a dataplan.

I am trying to configure my APN settings so that I will be able to login to facebook, gtalk using blackberry. My wifi is working fine but I have to use the browser if i want to access facebook etc. I want to use the network GPRS/3G pay-as-you-go service for accessing the same via the BB applications. Any suggestions?

Thanks

It won't work. You need a BlackBerry data plan.

Proof of what dc/dc has already spoke of.

Directly from RIM.

BlackBerry - Google Talk

Quote:
System Requirements

To use Google Talk for your BlackBerry® smartphone, the following is required:

* A wireless data service plan from your wireless service provider
* A Gmail™ User ID and password. You can obtain a Gmail UserID and password by being invited by a friend who has one or by entering your mobile phone number at https://www.google.com/accounts/SmsMailSignup1.
* A wireless data service plan from your wireless service provider
* Requires BlackBerry Device Software v4.2 or higher (to find your software version, click Options on the smartphone Home screen, then click About)
* If your device is connected to a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, your IT Department must have IT Policy set to allow Google Talk functionality

BlackBerry - Facebook

Quote:
System Requirements

To use Facebook® for BlackBerry® smartphones, the following is required:

* A wireless data service plan from your wireless service provider
* A BlackBerry smartphone with 64 MB of memory
* 882 KB of available smartphone memory
* BlackBerry® Device Software Version 4.2 or later

Manage your expectations lower. Or get a data plan. Or get something else to use.
