Question for OS7 users:

On OS6 on my 9300, when i view e-mails with images, the images aren't there, nor are they loading. I need to click on get images and sometimes i get lucky.

How is this behavior tackled in OS7?

It's the same in OS 5/6/7. Basically, images attract a lot of data traffic. Not all countries/operators offer UL plans. So by default, every BB comes with auto-image download option checked off.

Got a BB 9780 phone from office...used by colleague of mine for few days. I just reset everything to factory settings to get the old data's cleared


I was not able to configure email in my BB 9780.

Set up
Email Accounts
Internet Mail Account
User Name + Password
Activate

"Sorry, unable to continue your session. Please log in again"

I tried to log on to airtel.blackberry.com. Following is the message

"Cannot log in:

Your BlackBerry® Internet Service Account is suspended or deactivated. Please contact
Airtel at Dial 7070 from your Airtel Number. or bb.support@airtel.in.

Tried creating a new account by submitting the Device PIN and IMEI number...says the account cannot be created via web, please try on the hand phone :(

Any idea?

I am on 899 unlimited plan and for all my inbox's the "download auto image" is checked...the silly thing doesnt work still. Was hoping this button actually worked in OS7.

You didnt mention what data plan is active at present via Airtel. Maybe thats the roadblock

I guess me too on this 899 unlimited plan...I was previously using 9xxx and 8xxx BB with the same sim card and scheme & it worked fine. So I don't think there should be any issues with the plan

Since this is your colleagues phone, it should be already added to the BB server with your company. And if the plan can also rotate with just the SIM card......

Tried calling Airtel BB support - 7070?

Anyone, How do you have sent items of your personal e-mails appear on the device?

- Have unchecked "hide sent messages" in device e-mail options
- On airtel.blackberry.com after signing in, i cant create a filter to have sent items show on my device.

The petrolheads BB coming in a week: Porsche designed BlackBerry to be officially announced October 27th | CrackBerry.com



Porsche Design BB. Love it or hate it design.

This is BB's answer to Vertu.

Will be interesting to see the pricing(I think a 20% premium is competitive). Porsche Design has designed phones earlier with Sony but that did not have many takers. I remember one model being flip and had a pricetag of 45k inr. There is definitely a market for a snooty super premium BB given that BB's are the preferred choice by several richie rich's.

Hi Guys,

I'm using vodafone BIS-599 plan, which is available on prepaid as BIS-399, difference of 200 bucks. So two months back i went to vodafone store and complained about the same, i also told them to shift me to prepaid. The executive told me, SIR, don't shift to prepaid i will give you BB399 plan on your postpaid number. The plan got activated within 48 hours.

I suggest all the postpaid customers to try this out, you will save INR 2400 per year.

Ravi

I need advice.
I am getting Blackberry Bold 3 9780 for 21000 rupees on flipkart. Should I go ahead with this buy or is there a better blackberry in this price.
This is the maximum I am ready to pay for a Blackberry phone so please recommend anything within 21000.

Wish I had known this a few weeks earlier Ravi. Just paid 2500 for 6 months connectivity on BIS. I'll play this card when my BB plan is coming to an end in Feb odd.

I am posting it here so that others could also use this if needed .BTW corporate connection doesnt mean your employer pays for the connection. All you need to do it email them from your work ID
corpcare.kar@vodafone.com

Most of the times ,a talk of using the number portability option and switching to other carriers helps you get whatever you want
