    help with my blackberry

    Hi, I am new to this, got a blackberry storm the other day and cant seem to get the blackberry messanger to work, it just says friend pending when trying to add someone, and same when someone adds me on their device.

    Also I dont really like that fact that on "maps" the maps arent pre loaded onto the phone and download as you go, is there anyway you could download the maps onto your phone so it doesnt use up data and cost money when using it to find a place.

    Have you verified that your friend is accepting the pending invite to bb messenger?

    Not that I know of as far as downloading maps do you not have an unlimited data plan with your bb?

    They say its unlimited internet use subject to fair usage, I think its 500mb a month. I dont want to go over that thoe, the man in the store told me that the blackberry compacts items thoe so if your allowed 500mb its really about 3gb worth of data on the blackberry, is that true?

    Its my friend who has the other blackberry and we try to add each other by email and both our blackberrys say pending invitation.

    Try to add each other by pin number instead and see if that works. For your pin

    Go to options>>status

    Set up a new friend request using his pin or have him set one up using your pin and see if that helps.

    Not positive on your plan questions I will let one of the other guys answer that. I will just say that I have never been charged extra for anything on my BB and I use it A LOT.

    Let me know who the bb messenger goes.

    There are a ton of places

    1. The blackberrryos store has free apps
    2. stormota.com is another good site (go to this address on your phone's browser)

    I will get some more for you in a little bit

    Good luck and have fun

    5GB is the limit supposedly.

    Here is their TOS:

    Unlimited Data Plans and Features (such as NationalAccess, BroadbandAccess, Push to Talk, and certain VZEmail services) may ONLY be used with wireless devices for the following purposes: (i) Internet browsing; (ii) email; and (iii) intranet access (including access to corporate intranets, email, and individual productivity applications like customer relationship management, sales force, and field service automation). The Unlimited Data Plans and Features MAY NOT be used for any other purpose. Examples of prohibited uses include, without limitation, the following: (i) continuous uploading, downloading or streaming of audio or video programming or games; (ii) server devices or host computer applications, including, but not limited to, Web camera posts or broadcasts, automatic data feeds, automated machine–to–machine connections or peer–to–peer (P2P) file sharing; or (iii) as a substitute or backup for private lines or dedicated data connections. This means, by way of example only, that checking email, surfing the Internet, downloading legally acquired songs, and/or visiting corporate intranets is permitted, but downloading movies using P2P file sharing services and/or redirecting television signals for viewing on laptops is prohibited. A person engaged in prohibited uses, continuously for one hour, could typically use 100 to 200 MBs, or, if engaged in prohibited uses for 10 hours a day, 7 days a week, could use more than 5 GBs in a month.

    For individual use only and not for resale. We reserve the right to protect our network from harm, which may impact legitimate data flows. We reserve the right to limit throughput or amount of data transferred, and to deny or terminate service, without notice, to anyone we believe is using an Unlimited Data Plan or Feature in any manner prohibited above or whose usage adversely impacts our network or service levels. Anyone using more than 5 GB per line in a given month is presumed to be using the service in a manner prohibited above, and we reserve the right to immediately terminate the service of any such person without notice. We also reserve the right to terminate service upon expiration of Customer Agreement term.
