@johnda,

The blackberry desktop software provides an option to switch devices. connect 8800 and it would take its backup then connect 9700 and emails would be restored too...

its very easy and simple.

Let me know if any help is required

Desktop Manager do have an option of "Switch Blackberry Device", have you tried it ?? It should work as charm !! I shifted my boss's data from 8900 to 9700 via it, it went all through easily with flying colors.

So my 3 1/2 month old pup Rockstar decided to chew my Blackberry when nothing else was available and I was asleep. Stuck with a broken LCD and messed up front and back housing. Any good contacts for cheap parts? Planning to buy them from outside or perhaps a couple of bricked phones and scavenging for the parts from them.

Delhi is having plenty full of such dealers and mechanics dealing in such kinda repairs,not sure about mumbai. I believe some member (Sahil or someone else) got his phone repaired recently when the phone went down to (undeclared drinks) you should speak to him in the regard. For the body you can skip of getting an original one but yes do strain on getting the original one for LCD, as being a crucial part.

Guys can someone please tell me when the BB9800 slider phone is going to be launched in India ?
Planning to get my first BB , initially thought of the 9700 but then after seeing the features offered on the 9800. I thought I would wait.

Got a nice quote of around 3k for the OEM LCD and duplicate housing. The 8900 is really easy to open up, so it should be done soon

I should buy a cash card and use that take a pre-paid connection from thailand itself and use the BB service (does it work this way) I am assuming that it should work this way as the BB pin is assigned to the phone only

Has anyone done it internationally? I am not worried about phone calls but more about the emails??
Please advise

Guys any info/ advise to the above query??

Local option is the best but you will need BB service on the local account.

If you are looking at overall reliability, I would suggest to wait for 9800 launch and pickup 9700. Reason : A considerable price correction of 9700. Bar phone is anyday much more reliable and sturdy to use then that of a slider one. Slider phone are prone to go kaput due to usage of a cable to connect slider with main board which easily wears-off due to usage.

Hey guys
I surfed on crackerry forum and found that Thailand's Mobile service providers offer unlimited Blackberry services including browsing, messenger and all on prepaid cards @30Bhatts per day + VAT (which last I checked was 7%). The prices on that forum were not updated in 6-8 months buy I guess should be in the came range.
Also I found out that another service provider in Thailand (DTAC) offers BB services @ 650 unlimited for 1 month.

So I guess both the service providers would be having their outlets at the airport and if the cash card which is chargeable on the perday basis available I would prefer that as Ill be there for 9 days and this way it would workout to be 289 Bhatts approx 425 INR!!!


BTW no to sound too foolish or novice
I would do all the above believing that I would keep getting my emails on my BB as the BB pin is specific to the phone and not to the service provider.
If not then there is no point taking BB services and still not being able to use it!
Am I right in assuming that I would keep getting my emails, facebook updates, tweets etc etc on my BB 8520 even if I change the BB service provider???

Yes i tried with a shorter name, but still unable to open the file it says.

I don't think BB has inbuilt PDF viewer, else why would there be many 3rd party PDF viewers out there?

Hi,

I was told that you get a Prepaid Sim with BB activated for approx 300 Bhats a week at the airport itself. A friend tried it and says it works just fine.

Would suggest you go into your phone settings and turn off data services whilst roaming to prevent receiving large bills from your Indian service provider. You should be able to use the BB services using the local thai sim card I assume.
