You will need Yahoo Plus! to allow your BlackBerry to connect to YMail via POP3 (which your BlackBerry will use to connect). If you have a Plus! account, follow the instructions on Yahoo's site. You'll need these settings for your BlackBerry's setup. You'll have to create/login to your account on AT&T's BlackBerry portal. Once in there, enter your POP3 access settings.

I would suggest using another service (such as Gmail) which allow POP/IMAP access for free.

Unfortunately, you'll have to use a web browser to get your mail if you don't have a Plus! account.

Trying to convert,if possible, nextel blackberry 8530i to boostmobile


watch this video


Boost Mobile has the cheapest (and slowest) data service around, and the Nextel Branded BlackBerry is the only smart phone that works with Boost's iDEN service.

The old 7520 and 7100i BlackBerry's can be purchased for around 50 dollars, and are very usable smart phones.

The newer BlackBerry 8350i is one of the best blackberry smartphones available. However on Nextel it costs more then 120 dollars a month for unlimited everything and on Boost mobile you can get unlimited service for $50 a month.


The difference however is that Boost mobile does not offer a Blackberry Data Plan and Nextel does. So if you want to browse the web, send emails, and be able to download apps, you have to convert your Nextel Blackberry to Boost Mobile.

The email works a little differently in that you can set up your yahoo or aol mail to forward to your Blackberry by using the email address

yournumber@myboostmobile.com as the forward to email address.


What are the differences of the Nextel Blackberry models?




Besides the obvious difference which is the design of the phone and the applications and memory available, the 8350i runs BlackBerry OS version 4.6 whereas the 7520 and 7100i run version 4.1. The older OS does not support as many apps and features.


To sum it up Boost Mobile Phones aren't good and Blackberry's are. It's really that simple.


Does Boost support the BlackBerry?


Not officially. Boost sells their Starter kit to "give new life to a previously used Boost or Nextel phone", but they make no specific mention of its compatibility with the BlackBerry. Using a BlackBerry on Boost is consistent with their terms and conditions, but you won't get any help from Boost for configuring your BlackBerry.


Which features work?


Voice service and basic data service work.

3rd-party apps work, including apps for web browsing, email, GPS, and instant messaging.


Over-the-air installation of apps using the BlackBerry Browser will work if youfollow the how-to.

Text messaging will work if you follow the how-to.

Apps can also be installed using the Desktop Manager software on your PC.

Which Boost plans included data service?

All Boost plans include basic data service

Top 10 Tips before unlocking your GSM Blackberry Safely, Cheaper & Quicker


<span><span><span>1.Your GSM Blackberry can be unlocked<span> </span></span></b>- No matter what GSM model you have on any network, there is a 95% success rate using professional unlocking services to unlock your model. Just because you read that people cannot unlock your Blackberry, does not mean it cannot be done by anyone. Do more research as you did to get here and you will get it done. CDMA cannot, we will talk more about that later on.<br /><br /><span>2.Give Yourself Time</span></b><span> </span>- Unlock your Blackberry in advance, depending on your network, it can take up to 10 business days to unlock your phone. Specially for international networks outside North American. At the time this was written here are some examples for time periods. Rogers Blackberry Unlock (0-2 business days), Cingular Blackberry Unlock (1-2 business days), T Mobile Blackberry Unlock (1-3 business days), Vodafone UK Blackberry Unlock (1-3 business days), other networks vary, you need to check the Global Unlock website (fastest possible methods are only used)<br /><br /><span>3.GSM vs CDMA</span></b><span> </span>- Blackberry comes in two different technologies. You can only unlock GSM Blackberry (networks like Blackberry T Mobile Unlock, Blackberry Cingular Unlock, Blackberry Rogers Unlock, Blackberry Vodafone Unlock). You cannot unlock CDMA Blackberry (Sprint, Verizon, Bell, Telus). Outside North America 90% of networks are GSM and the success rate with our service is 95% to unlock blackberry phones. Blackberry has recently introduced Dual CDMA/GSM, at this time they come unlocked, however the frequency makes it so you can only use it oversea's.<span> </span><br /><br /><span>4.How To Unlock?<span> </span></span></b>- When Unlocking, always use a unlock code - This method is the simplest and safest method to unlocking your phone. You can hook it up to servers, however with the design of the Blackberry we strongly prefer codes for two reasons. First, if you have a security password or IT password on your phone, you will need to remove it before unlocking. Second, using a proper unlock code, you cannot damage your phone, since there is nothing hooked up to your phone. I would suggest code is if want to pay less (take the risk of trouble) on older models. Newer Blackberry cannot be unlock by software.<br /><br />Instructions -<span> </span><a href="http://unlockgenie.com/Blackberry-Manuals">Click Here for BlackBerry Unlocking Instructions</a></b><br /><br /><span>5.What about a different SIM Cards?</span></b><span> </span>- Always make sure you know how you will get your foreign or new SIM card before you use it on another network. You can purchase it from a local store in the country you are going to use it. I suggest doing your research online, finding out which plan (pay as go most of the time) will fit you and order the SIM card for the website to mail it a address in the country of us. Buying in the store can cost up to $40, where online in many cases they will only charge you the shipping fee's (Example AT&T charges $30 in store and $6 shipped to a US address). This will save time and hassle when you get to where you will use the SIM card<br /><br /><span>6.Do You Need to Repeat Unlock Process?<span> </span></span></b>- If your phone is unlocked professionally it will not require a re-unlock even if you change the software. The only reason you would ever have to re-unlock it is if the hardware changes. I do get people who get codes from less trusted places, then come and ask for me to get certain features working. I cannot guarantee service since the earlier process has corrupted what I need to do, so it may not work. Get it done right immediately<span> </span><br /><br /><span>7.Is Blackberry Unlock Support Needed?</span></b>- When unlocking a blackberry, they are in most cases pretty simple to unlock, however it is always suggest to use a professional unlocking blackberry service (company should be registered, long standing website, have a public phone # and email), so you can get support if you need it.<br /><br /><span>8.Why Use Remote Service?<span> </span></span></b>- If you take this to someone to do it, you are spending your time, paying more when you do not need to. I have made the offer to over 500 people in the past few years in Toronto, Canada. Come to me, pay double and leave it with me for a couple days or do it through the Global Unlock website. If you have an issue, then come and see me. I have had 1 person see me in 500, he was a taxi driver with no email address and it took me 45 seconds to unlock his phone. DO IT YOURSELF, I encourage people not to come in and see me if they want to and almost everyone agree and it happy once they see how easy it and they are supported on the Blackberry Unlock<br /><br /><span>9.Does Network Support Unlock Blackberry?</span></b><span> </span>- Make sure the network you want to use the unlock Blackberry on supports Blackberry Devices. I have included a list of all Blackberry networks, I tried to take out GSM, however please douvlec check. You can find this out by checking the network website and see if they sell GSM Blackberry. If they sell GSM Blackberry, they will support all Blackberry. If they do not, call customer support and ask if they support GSM Blackberry<br /><br /><span>10.What About Data Plan?<span> </span></span></b>- Blackberry use special data plans called Blackberry Connect. You cannot use a regular Data Plan for Blackberry functions<br /><br />Now you are ready to unlock your Blackberry, geared with all the information you need to safely unlock your Blackberry device.</span></span>

Can't use wi-fi without data plan? on blackberry bold 9700 can't transfer pictures from laptop to blackberry either?


you can surf the net on a wifi network even of you dont have a data plan. turn the wifi on then select "set up wifi network" then just follow the instructions to be able to connect to the network. if you still can't after doing this, it might be because the signal of the network is not that strong.
regarding the bluetooth, go to media, then press the menu button (the bb logo), then select "receive via bluetooth" for your bb to receive the file from your laptop/other phones.

How do i unlock my blackberry curve 8520 smartphone


1. Turn on your Blackberry Curve 8520 phone with your current network/service provider’s SIM card.
2. Using the menu go to Settings Menu -> SIM card and press select.
3. While holding the SHIFT key, type mepd.
4. You should now see the five locking categories listed.
5. While holding the SHIFT KEY, type mep2.
6. Release the shift key.
7. You will now be prompted to enter the Network MEP code.
8. Enter the Unlock Code.
9. Enter Return/Enter.
10. Your Blackberry Curve 8520 phone should then be unlocked.
Now you should have yourself a fully unlocked Blackberry Curve 8520. Before you can use your newly unlocked phone on a new phone carrier’s network, you must buy a SIM card and order a voice plan with that carrier. If the steps above did not work on your Blackberry Curve 8520, do not try repeating as this could just permanently lock your mobile phone.

Push emails not working


I've been told that there are e-mail limitations on an Iphone such as one e-mail account per phone. Kind of sad that Apple did that since most Blackberry phones can handle up to 10 e-mail accounts and possibly even more if you have access to a Blackberry domain controller.

You might have to use the web browser to get your ymail to work. I take it Ymail is Yahoo Mail?
