The solution is downloading Blackberry Unite from http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/blackberryunite/

After this you have the browser working (go to options, advanced options, browser and change hotspot browser for Unite browser), and you can go and surf to www.mobile.blackberry.com and download MSN

Re: Using my BlackBerry Bold with T-mobile

Will the same or similar downloads work with the T-Mobile Hotspot at Home?  I can do all but the web browsing on the T-Mobile EDGE network and Hotspot at Home.  T-Mobile seems disinterested in helping us work out this issue.  They simply say to buy one of their phones.

Re: Using my BlackBerry Bold with T-mobile

The real solution to your problems is to backup the Service Books from a supported BlackBerry, and to restore them onto your Bold.

 

Of course to backup or restore Service Books successfully, you first have to remove a piece of the BlackBerry web browser (net_rim_bb_browser_daemon.cod). If you google for a package called "enable_browser_v2", it'll give you the javaloader utility (also provided by RIM), along with a script that has easy menu options for doing that.


Basically, this is what you have to do:

1) Plug in supported and BlackBerry to your PC

2) Uninstall the browser, wait for the device reset

3) Use the Desktop Manager's advanced backup/restore to save the Service Books

4) Reinstall the browser, wait for the device reset

 

5) Plug in your BlackBerry Bold to your PC

6) Uninstall the browser, wait for the device reset

7) Use the Desktop Manager's advanced backup/restore to load the Service Books saved in step 3.

8) Reinstall the browser, wait for the device reset

 

This is all a royal pain, and you'll have to do it every time you SIM-swap or do an OS upgrade.  But it does work.  I got a Bold a couple weeks ago, and use T-Mobile, and this is how I've gotten it all working.
