Re: Blackberry ID agreement problems

The PlayBook knows where it is located. The present government bans the service within its borders. The best thing to do is get it setup in a legal neighboring country.

Dubliners have to set up as UK, don't see the difference.

 

Playbook knows where it is?  Why does it ask you then?  Not arguing with you, just wondering how that works.

Re: Blackberry ID agreement problems

It has more to do with what the Government of the foreign country wants, RIM isn't listed for sale in many countries for various reasons, some political, some not. If you look at the country list, you will see that some features are not available in some countries.

Let's hope they have a way for free men to get round political baloney. RIM certainly should not be kow-towing to them. The internet is for all people without let or hindrance.

Well his question to the experts has now been moved to this mysterious expert panel forum and it is now locked out to anyone not an expert.

 Seems I am not one of them so from now on this RIM politbureau can answer for me. I am off.

**bleep** you RIM if you want to be secretive and elitist.

Re: Blackberry ID agreement problems

Carrier and payment systems complicated with goverment ties is not an easy task to deal with.

Internet is free in many places but not free everywhere. Some countries block searches, some block select info, some block pron and others make google look like a saint.

I know this wont help the issue but maybe make it easier for others to understand. I have friends around the world and not all are equal in freedom.

Re: Blackberry ID agreement problems

Newbie here. But I have been following this with interest.

OK so why should the manufacturer make it even more difficult for them by insisting a user puts the correct country?

I wonder if he tried to use a British setup yet?

 

This secret expert panel is all rather Kafka-esque. I would have liked to see what they thought ;-)
