    U bent inderdaad awesome. Want die tutorial was hoognodig!
    Maar kan u nu ook een tutorial maken voor het instellen van MMS op Blackberry?
    Want sinds ik Mobile Viking ben, kan ik geen mmsen meer sturen of ontvangen.

    Met vriendelijke groeten

    Inderdaad een zeer handige en nodige tutorial maar zoals Manon Coenjaarts zegt zou een MMS tutorial voor blackberry veel nuttiger zijn aangezien daar geen clientside oplossing voor bestaat naar mijn weten!

    Desondanks een goede tutorial voor mensen die hier moeite mee hadden!

    Is het nu mogelijk om een BB te gebruiken (3G surfen, mailen, heel de wierwar) op het netwerk van Mobile Vikings?

    I cannot set up my email and it tells I should contact my wireless service provider.
    The wizard is just giving me the option : I want to use a work email account with a Blackberry Enterprise Service, but no way to get a personal email address configurated.
    Could you please help me?
    Thank you

    By the way, just referring to the above, on the support forum of BB I got this advice:
    Do you have a BlackBerry Data Plan enabled on your account with your carrier or mobile provider?
    You must, in order to get the RIM push email functions you are looking for, as well as addtional BlackBerry data services such as the internet browser, Facebook for BlackBerry, BlackBerry Messenger, and much more.

    So, call your carrier and inquire about having the BlackBerry Data Plan added to your account.

    Can you help me please?

    I know this is not the right place to ask, but will this also work to get internet on your BB with Carrefour Mobile?

    I don’t understand this part:
    ‘If the connection was made successfully, you see the following screen. To verify that you are indeed connected to a Wi-Fi network, click ʻManage Connectionsʼ again:’

    if I want to connect to blackberry internet lets say somewhere in the park. this should be possible right?
    I mean at home I have my wifi but as soon as I leave the house, my mobile vikings and blackberry is not connected to the internet anymore.
    do I have to find a free hotspot to be in the internet? then I don’t need mobile vikings.. cause it’s free internet. or if i have to find a hotspot from which I have to know the password – then it’s also the hotspot and not mobilevikings internet anymore.

    please help me I want to sit in the metro and be able to access internet without connecting to pay hotspots or such.
    I mean that’s why I bought mobilevikings for.

    it always says ‘your data plan …something’ like I am not allowed to use internet with my data plan.
    but when I check online it says I have 2 gb left.

    thanks for the help.

    Zou deze omweg via de Opera Mini browser ook kunnen internetten via 3G met een Mobistar Dolfijn abonnement (en zo de maandelijkse extra kost voor BIS vermijden)?

    Alvast bedankt!
