Okay. First of all there is a solution, however very complicated and it may brick (make your equipment unusuable due to software corruption). BUT if you are down, here is how you'd go about it:

First things first, you want to know why the tom tom and your crackberry are not communicating correctly. This is because they are operating on different sets of protocols, the tomtom roles on Bluetooth (BT) 2.01a while the blackberry uses BT 2.0. That 1a is tomtom's way of saying "haha ******, buy another phone, thats on our list." Why they'd urge such things, who knows the motifs. It may most likely be that these companies have some kind of affiliation and are trying to increase revenues with bs marketing. Regardless it is a thrifty idea. So the solution:

First of all, I hope your on t-mobile or at&t, because otherwise you wont be able to do it. There are sim card hacks that are very easy to do and cheap to buy. Hacking through USB communications port becomes a little tougher. Either way you want to search the forums.crackberry.com for the sim software called "mogul49." There are others but THIS hacks blackberries with the quickness (5-10 minutes instead of 1hour and possible bricking), and rarely ever bricks your phone. There are tons of other softwares discussed, and they may do the job (maybe not), but mogul49 is the way. Once you have that, you use it to open and enter into the file system on the blackberry, goto the \\bt\sys directory and replace the .bat file with the 2.01a .bat file. You can find this by searching up bluetooth protocol for 2.01a on google, and possible in the crackberry forums if they still have it.

Remember to always backup anything and everything, BEFORE you start any of this. Other than that Good Luck!

Blackberry pearl - TomTom 920 compatibility


Greetings,
Looking into this I have found that they only blackberry firmware that is compatible with TomTom Plus services is 4.2.1.66 found here:
https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=1D72310EDC006DADF2190CAAD5802983

I scraped the rest off a forum and will paste it below. It seems to me that it is a lot of trouble for not a lot of payoff. Good Luck!
ou can still get the 4.2.1.66 version here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...190CAAD5802983
from Italy downloads but don't worry, it's Multilanguage. The Package Version is 4.2.1.102.

Install BlackBerry's Desktop Manager, I used version 4.3. Then remove the .bin (dot bin) from the 4.2.1.66 version you downloaded and run it letting it install itself. Then goto /Program Files/Common Files/Research In Motion/Apploader on the disk you installed the Desktop Manager on and rename vendor.xml to vendor.xml-save. If you don't do this the Desktop Manager will not offer to install the the 4.2.1.66 Italy version. (Unless probably you have an Italian provider.)

Then, you still have to do a manual setup of the phone in the TomTom setup.

1. Let the TomTom find the BlackBerry and Confirm connection to it.
2. Set it up as a trusted device on the BlackBerry.
3. Use TomTom services --> Yes
4. Country: United States
5. Select your Provider --> Other
6. Do you want to set up wireless data connection manually --> Yes
Access Point Name --> wap.voicestream.com
Username:
Password:
Obtain IP --> Automatic
Obtain DNS --> Automatic
Dial --> *99#
Login script --> at+cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.voicestream.com"
7. OK and it should connect!

Note: Attempting to use internet1.voicestream.com, internet2.voicestream.com, or internet3.voicestream.com as the TomTom attempts to do if you pick T-Mobile (I) thru (IV) did not work.

Since the first phone I tried was the T-Mobile Shadow I signed up for the Total Internet Plan, now that I have the BlackBerry I changed that to the BlackBerry Unlimited Plan but T-Mobile says it takes 2 to 48 hours to provision that so if this still works on Tuesday I'm good to go.

The trick to getting this working was to do a Factory Reset on the GO 720. Bingo. It worked. You still have to use wap.voicestream.com instead of internet2.voicestream.com (or any other number). So you can pick T-Mobile (I) and let it fail then choose to do a Manual setup changing the APN to wap.voicestream.com and accepting the default for the rest, or you can do a manual config from the get go and enter the APN, number to dial, and the connection string a.k.a. the Login Script on the TomTom.

And another thing, on the 8120 under Settings --> Advanced --> TCP the APN: value should be blank.

You have to have tethering then it will work, I have a 8300 and until I got tethering it wouldn't work, you still have to purchase the traffic plan for around $59 a year.

Hi There,

List of Compatible Phones can be found here.

If you had your old voyager connect, make sure when you connect the new voyager, delete the phone on your tomtom in the manage phone option and delete the tomtom from the mobile in the bluetooth/paired devices option.
Then try again and get the tomtom to connect to your mobile.

Thanks,

Hi There,

The phone you are trying to connect are not listed in this list here
http://www.tomtom.com/phones/compatibility/devices.php
one thing you can do, look for a phone in that list, if it does not connect to your tomtom then there could be an issue with your tomtom bluetooth.

if it was connecting before and you updated to version 8.300 then again it may be the application version that can cause the issue.

Thanks,

Compatability with Nokia 6120 Mobile Phone


Its because your phone may be using the memory card as its storage for the messages. To fix this, go to messaging > Click OPTIONS on inbox > scroll down to settings > Scroll down to other > and go to memory in use > select phone memory. If it has already phone memory selected, try the memory card. When you connect to the computer, if it tries to access the segment in use by the phone, it will block it out.
Hope it works out for you ;)
