Curve 3900 3G

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

Just got my new phone yesterday - BlackBerry Curve 3900 3G OS 6 with Orange contract - but have arrived at some problems already. Hope someone can assist me :smileyhappy:

 

Firstly, I have setup wifi through my home broadband, and that is working well. But occasionally it connects to the net via orange, which i do not wish because i will incur costs on my bill. Is there anyway specifically to make certain I only use my wifi signal? Like turn off orange internet access completely to leave only my home wifi?

 

Secondly, I cannot access MSN messenger (service is not enabled for this handset).  Also I cannot connect to my NTL email accounts.(When i try to setup email, its asking me to enter my enterprise account.) I dont have or need one, I simply want to enter my home email accounts. But there is no option for this internet email :smileysad:

 

I read somewhere that i may need to pay an extra £5 to my carrier for internet access. But I dont want thier internet, as I have my own wifi . Surely these issues can be solved somehow?

 

 

Many thanks


Vince

Re: Curve 3900 3G

In order to use the push email and IM clients on the blackberry you will need to get the £5 blackberry bolt on.

Re: Curve 3900 3G

Thanks for the reply :smileyhappy:

 

Ive had a read of that link, alot of stuff im not familiar with, so I will need to look them up. Incidently, if i need the £5 bolt on thing (which i assume is internet access from my mobile contract provider....., whats the point of me using my home wifi then? :Eek: or is the bolt on simple enabling the msn and email withouth internet, im confused.

 

Wont that be two means of internet access ill have?

 

On my ipod i set up wifi and away i go, can get emails etc no problem. I think this phone maybe going back for another one :Surrender:

The £5 bolt on comes with a certain amount of inclusive data, normally 500mb-1gb, to use when out and about. The blackberry bolt on also provides access to the blackberry servers which provide the push email functions

Ok. Thanks jamead. Selected as solution and gave kudos :smileyhappy:

 

I emailed orange to see if I am able to return the upgrade as I dont want to pay more on the contract. And without paying more all i have is a phone for txting with a poor camera :smileysad:

 

     Not sure if they allow change of upgrades.. If they phone me I will try haggling for an iphone on the same deal. Probably wont work, but worth a shot I guess.

 

Many thanks for your time
