Re: New Blackberry Bold Help

You must have THE BlackBerry Data Plan in order to get the RIM push email functions, as well as addtional BlackBerry data services such as the internet browser, Facebook for BlackBerry, BlackBerry Messenger, and much more.

You can use your Hotspot browser for internet surfing (set it at Options > Advanced > Browser > Hotspot, and save). Some few third party applications like Pandora Radio will work on WiFi only.

Good luck.

Calendar and the Alarm clock will work just perfectly.

Re: New Blackberry Bold Help

Oh ok. Sorry. Check those settings and it'll work on WiFi.

 

Your calendar won't be able to sync to Outlook without and email profile, but otherwise you'll be fine.
