my experience with BIS and BES activation
First off, sorry if this is a long post - I'm a recently registered member (though I've been reading for a couple of months) and I'm just trying to be complete.
I wanted to post my experience regarding activating and using a BB (both BIS and BES) on PagePlus. In short, I believe I was successful in activating a used BB 8830 (with clear ESN, but questionable PIN) on PagePlus with subsequent activation on a BIS and workplace BES. Here's what I did:
* bought used BB 8830 (on CL) after asking seller to verify that ESN was clear
* unsuccesfully attempted account creation on Verizon's BIS using PIN (account already existed for PIN)
* took a chance and activated on PP (much thanks to Avenue)
* once activated, I was able to setup an account on the BIS
* successful initial activation on workplace BES, but before 24 hours had passed, I stopped receiving workplace emails
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to troubleshoot it because the USB port on the BB was faulty, and I haven't had a way to charge the device. I believe the two issues are unrelated and hope that once I have a replacement device I can troubleshoot more effectively. (Currently, I'm still negotiating with the seller on the defective BB). I was encouraged by the previous reports that BIS activation was possible, but really needed a BIS and BES solution.
I'll post an update when I get a new device. Feel free to PM for more details. (Thanks much to Avenue and the rest of the forum members for all the great info!)
Why not make a Blackberry workaround pack like the Boostberry users do?
Well, maybe we can put together a Blackberry cdma workaround pack of independent non Rim apps like how the Boostberry guys did. Any ideas anyone? It ain't the same, but beats the hell out of a completely crippled Blackberry...Mini opera of course, don't know if teleflip substitute beltic.com would be of any use on a cdma Berry...not familiar with their sms system. Believe it is different from iden. Iden is mms yeah?
Any other suggestions?
does mms and bb pin work on ppc
Tom, have you been able to get mms and bb pin working on pageplus? I assume bb pin would use data and wouldn't be a lot.
