New to me Blackberry 8320
Hello everyone! I'm new to the forum. Just got an 8320 used from a friend. It started life on T-Mobile, is unlocked now, and I'm setting it up and will run on AT&T.
I had posted on blackberry.com asking suggestions about the OS. They said to play with it and if I didn't have problems, don't worry about it. Well, I picked a theme that was loaded on the phone and was immediately greeted with App Error 523 and cycles of resets. Sweet!
Did some reading here. Downloaded the crackmem app and the most recently suggested OS. Ran crackmem, removed unwanted components there, and wiped the phone, and I'm currently installing the OS. Hopefully that's going well.
Good work on the info!
Anyway. Any suggestions for a BB noob are welcome. I plan to use the phone primarily as a phone (of all things!) for work, and for e-mail with a need for viewing attachments. If there is a good browser, then I may use it for internet access. I also have a Samsung A867 for personal use, and can use it...but if I can dump data service on that phone all the better!
Edit: Just an FYI, the OS installation worked very well! It appears there is some residual T-Mobile junk from the firmware, but not a big deal.
