    Hi there

    I'm from Denmark and I just got my brand new 8820. Nice device. I now have couple of questions that I need to ask.

    1. How do I re-install the device, I'm running Mac OS X. My device came unlocked, does the re-install wipe the unlock? The BB is not branded.

    2. I have wireless issues. I'm using my MacBook as a AP to share my internet connection through my Huawei E270 Turbo 3G modem. I cannot connect to it. All other devices can such as iPhone etc. It Finds the network but cannot logon to it, no matter what I do :-(

    3. Is it possible to browse using GPRS instead of Wifi. Of is it Wifi only on a 8820?

    4. Can you suggest Any 3'rd party email program that doesn't require BES or BIS? It should work with Gmail.

    5. Why do I need BES or BIS in order to use the GPS? Is there any good 3'rd parties
    GPS software?

    6. How do I make it surf the internet using GPRS only?

    Please help me out.

    Cheers

    You should be able to turn off WiFi in the options, I'm not sure how but I know it can be done on the other WiFi enabled BB's.

    I'm not sure why you need a data plan to use GPS, I wasn't aware that you did.

    Aren't your 3rd and 6th questions the same thing?

    I don't think a wipe would undo the unlocking process, but I'm not sure. Wait for someone more experienced for that answer. There are a few 3rd party GPS apps, you can probably find some of them on the popular app page on this site. Try this.
