Just got a bb 7250, or 7290, verizon, looking for some tips
i was looking for a cheap phone with a qwerty, found a 7250 on ebay for 15 bucks.
set up through verizon. (the reason i said or 7290 is because when i plugged it into my pc it said it was a 7290)
found the latest version software i could, which shows on the phone as v 188.8.131.528 (platform 184.108.40.206) - on this About menu, it says it is actually a 7250.
It also says Java is installed with the little flash screen but I havent seen Java work at all during my browsing.
I've tried downloading many apps, even those that actually download properly and install don't work: for example - facebook mobile and google+ apps both give me the same error when attempting to initialize:
Error starting facebookmobile: Symbol 'BrowserSession.showBrowser' not found.
I also have a list of apps that have come up when trying to install, download or run an app I've downloaded:
net rim bb lbs api 2
net rim bbapi maps
net rim bbapi messagelist
net rim xml org
net rim bb browser field2 api
net rim crypto
net rim jaxrpc
(all of these filenames, when listed on the BB, have underscores instead of spaces)
So what can I do with this 7250? No contract. Verizon service. $30 data package 2 gb limit. + 10 bucks for friends and family unlimited text.
If there's anything crazy I can do to this phone to get more functionality out of it, I'd love to know....thank you.
