    When using OS 4.5 8830 can have a working SprintTV. However,
    most people downloaded the version 1.5.3 from fuji site that
    does not have the same screen size as the 8830 (taking 2/3 of
    the screen).

    It turns out that the SprintTV for BB 8330 works fine on 8830 and
    has the same screen size (version 1.5.2). I tested it and it works
    fine.

    It is at www.mobitv.com/rim/8330/SpintTVBlackberry.jad
    download it from your BB AND do not put the filename i.e.
    just mobitv

    FYI

    I tried to download and install it on my VZW 8830, as of right now, it's a no-go. It gives me a link down error.

    It means when you type in the link on the BB do not type the SprintTVBlackberry.jad .

I can look at the channel guide, but when I try to wach a channel, I get an security error sayin I need o contact my BES administrator....I am running OS 4.2. My computer broke and I can't upgrade to OS 4.5. Unless someone knows where I can ge 4.5 OTA. Anyone know how to fix this BES error?? I changed all the security setting for sprint tv to "allow"

    I have a 8830 World Edition with OS 4.2.2.196

    I downloaded the app SprintTV onto my VZ 8830WE and consistantly get application error msg. Is there a block enforced by VZ to prevent use of this app?

    Application error. We regret this
    inconvenience. Please try again
    later.(7)(15001)

    Sure would be nice to use this app when stuck in the airports this winter.

    It is a subscrition service through sprint. Obviously you are not subscribed being on verizons network.

    Get error:

    This product version is not available for purchase on this device.

    Could not subscribe



    So it looks like it knows what device I am (8830 WE) and I am on the sprint net.

    Thoughts?

    IIRC my friend had sprintTV on his VZW voyager, which he got by going to the links of the actual channels on his browser. I'll see if I can fool around with it on my VZW 8830

    How are you getting 4.5 on the 8830? I thought the only update available was up to 4.2?

    Can anyone tell me how to download this(MobiTV) jad. file. I can't seem to do it using Desktop Manger vs 4.7. I'm a novice at this, but would love to watch Sprint TV on my Sprint BB 8830 WE. I have upgraded to the 4.5.0.127 OS.
