    I just purchased a blackberry curve 8310 with AT&T and I was wondering which bundles of media if any do I need to have immediately. Ive been with AT&T for 13 years and have unlimited messaging and internet. What do I need for this phone

    Re: New to Blackberry

    All you really need on a BlackBerry is the unlimited internet access. This will give you just about everything you need. If you want to send text messages instead of E-mail then you may want to get a text messaging plan as well, but that is completely up to you.
    There are also several other options, such as if you would like to use the BlackBerry as a modem for your laptop then you can get a tethering package that will allow you to do this. And also there is a higher internet package if you decide to get on BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Server) for your E-mail. Most times BIS is enough if you are just using POP3 email but if you want your E-mail, Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Memos all to sync without using the wire then you may want to get on a hosted BES solution and get the BES data package from your provider.

    I have the BES on my curve as it's a company phone. It works great except I would like to access my hotmail in the browser. I got the java turned on but it doesn't load but at the top, it says "sign in". Anybody know how to configure it to get access?

    My BlackBerry Browser does the same thing and I am also on BES.
    I would download Opera Mini. I was able to pull it up and log in just fine using their browser.

    Thanks, I'll give it a try. If it works great for you, it should work for me.

    Does anyone use Verizon? Apparently it costs 15.00 a month to tether your blackberry to your computer and use it as a modem. Is it worth it?
