WiFi File Transfer App / 8330

Recently joined the BlackBerry World and love my device! Got hooked on Applications and purchased a WiFi File Transfer App. among others from BBCool. They state that the 8330 w/ OS 4.5 is compatible but I am unable to get an IP address from my Laptop. Is there somthing I'm missing? Contacted the App. Creator and he says that he isn't sure if the 8330 supports WiFi, Should'nt he know? Anyway I really need some help as I am a novice with BlackBerrys, please respond as if you were talking to a novice!!! Thanks DOG

Re: WiFi File Transfer App / 8330

Hi Dog! And Welcome to the Forums!

 

See this chart:

 

http://na.blackberry.com/eng/devices/blackberrycurve8300/curve_specifications.jsp

 

You will see that the 8330 indeed does not have a WiFi radio. So, if what you are attempting (I've no idea what a "WiFi File Transfer App" is) requires a BB with WiFi, then the 8330 is not capable of that.

 

Cheers!

Re: WiFi File Transfer App / 8330

Yup...I see 8330 in their list of compatible devices. If you bought with a credit card or PayPal, you should be able to go through them for the dispute. Be sure you capture screen shots of the mis-information so that you have it.

 

Good luck!
