Phumlani, 01 Mar 2010Hi, all..plz help me with getiing started with instant messaging. The contacts i had tried add... morehi..
actually for u to get starting n enjoy the BB's IM,u need to have the internet service..if u dont have the internet connection how come u will get through to chat via the IM! to do that,u need to have the BIS (blackberry internet service)..which is mean the data package especially for BB..w/out BIS ur device cant functions like it should be..kindly contacts ur carrier regarding this matter to know what will they charge u per month..after u hv subscribes the BIS,u r fully covered with the internet connection 24/7..then only u can enjoy using ur BB n get all the features that u as a BB user supposed to have in ur device..for instance,u can online via ym all the time,set ur FB n get all the notifications from it from time to time,set ur emails n then get the push email to ur device n so on..with wifi u still can get online BUT in the limited area only(u need to be at the wifi hotspot only)..but,as far as i know even if u can connected via wifi instead of BIS,i doubt that u cant get all the benefits like u suppose to have if u a BIS subscriber..my advice,sign up for the BIS n then u r problem free..no hassle n peaceful in mind..although u need to pay more for that,but u can get all the benefits..BB is definitely not the same like others..

I can swear that the LED should blink but some people just say that it doesn't. I guess we just have to wait and see if someone can "fix" this :)
Hi, all..plz help me with getiing started with instant messaging. The contacts i had tried adding say pending. I bought my phone cash and not on contract, could this be the reason by any chance? Please help!!!
can somebody help me find a native pdf reader for my 8520. i havent subcribed to BB BIS and i was told that if email attachments come in pdfs they will be opened automatically. however, if i transferred pdf files from my laptop for example, i couldnt open it in my BB 8520. tried searching for a pdf reader application online but to no avail. help would be much appreciated. thanks guys!
JRF, 28 Feb 2010Ok, this is wierd. This morning I recieved a phone call and the LED was blinking while it was ... morehahahahahaha!
You & blackberrian r funny!
anyway thanks for the support :)
PS. Blackberrian - i also did not like the message option of the call log for Missed Calls (i.e. to have it in message inbox). So i left Missed Call as is.
wonderwoman, 28 Feb 2010Bout the answer you gave to mj.. is this BIS service usa only?Yeah, BIS is everywhere. But there are a few countries that don't support it yet. You can check that with your carrier :)
wonderwoman, 28 Feb 2010Bout the answer you gave to mj.. is this BIS service usa only?nope..it was referred to all around the world..
JRF, 28 Feb 2010Searched everywhere and most things say that it doesn't blink after a missed call unless you h... morehahaha..see i told already what,in my previous post bro..b4 dis we r busy with our lives n things to do n no time to check bout this..we all just assume that nothing such a thing like this will happen as we always see the LED blinking every time we had the notifications no matter what it is..the LED MUST be blinked..then when suddenly someone came to us n tell their prob regarding this kind of issues,then only our eyes were just "pop" n then we recognized this issues coming..at first,i also assumed that when i had a missed calls the LED should blinking like it should be..after a while i noticed i had the same prob like safoo n now its ur turn..its so weird dude..y this happening huh??ok,i did what u told me but i dont like it to be that way(the missed calls notification were in the mssges box) coz it can "eats" the memory of the device when we keept too many mssges,rite?first i dial up my self i saw the LED blinks one time only then it shut..after i hang up the LED still not blinking like it should be..then,i off the device then i try again,this time the LED was blinking all the time until i hang up..after dat,the LED doesnt lights up..hahaha..is this coincidence or actually it was designed that way n we dont know bout it until someone came n open our eyes..what say u bro?
Searched everywhere and most things say that it doesn't blink after a missed call unless you have Missed Calls set to Messages (Press green call key>options>call logging>missed calls>save). Which I do, and still no luck. Even on BB's official website they say this. Oh well, lets see what happens later.
blackberrian, 28 Feb 2010nope bro,i havent reject the calls from my device but with another device..still the problem p... moreOk, this is wierd. This morning I recieved a phone call and the LED was blinking while it was ringing, I didn't answer and now my LED doesn't flash! On crackberry.com they told me that it doesn't blink, but others say it does, so nobody seems to know. I was sure that mine did as I always call myself to check out my ringtones. i'm still waiting on a response from a more experienced user, hopefully he can help me. Until then, there's nothing we can do I guess.
safoo, 28 Feb 2010Blackberrian, I also dont get LED flashing when missed call. I get what JFR Described-... moreyes,i also think that way too friend..u know what,b4 dis neither me nor JRF encountered this prob until u came and ask about this! hehehe..then,i dont know whether it was a coincidence or a sign then for us all the gemini users..hehehe..but im still uncomfortable with this issue although it wasnt a defect..

I also dont get LED flashing when missed call.
I get what JFR Described--> i.e. the message & the small phone mark with x on it, indicating a missed call.
So it is the phone (no defect or so).
JRF, 27 Feb 2010No I haven't has any issues with mine so far. Are you hanging up on your phone or the other ph... morenope bro,i havent reject the calls from my device but with another device..still the problem persist..i dont know what the hell is going on..even though this is not a big deal but not get all that i supposed to get is really annoys me man..hahha,i guess one thing to do..i need to off the device n pull out the battery..then i can check what is coming..huhu

Are you hanging up on your phone or the other phone? If you hang up from your phone (reject the call by pressing End) then it won't blink. If you are doing it from the other one, then I don't know. I'll check it as soon as I can get a chance.
