    Much respect to the OP for this. It should do some well.

    I dumped it. Shangmail is down more the its up. Forwarding emails to a gmail account then waiting for gmail app can take up to 45 minutes. IDEN network is slow. Poor call quality. Slow text. Slow web. I wanted to save a few bucks but I have a business to run and this didnt cut it for me.

    CDMA 8330 is on sprint with no roaming. So that didnt give me much room to move as sprints service area is small.

    I got a solid plan at T-Mobile and got a BB plan. Good luck with this. Im selling my mint 8350i and im done with boost forever.

    i kept lookinmg at this post and kept saying to myself, this isnt gonna work... finally i got pissed off for not being able to txt with my blackberry 7520 from nextel. i did everything it sez to do, except u prolly dont need to put allm ur contacts on ur sim. i repeat this for everyone. THIS WORKS FOR THE BOOSTBERRY 7520!!! but before u do that, go to boostmobile and change ur phone to the imei on the bb. it works totally. but just so u know its no sms. only mms. like it matters anyways thank you very much friend

    Hi, a little help. I was trying to update my BB curve 8350i to the new OS, and as it was updating a message popped up saying "An error has occurred while updating your device software. Device communications error encountered.[A:0x0000000F].
    I tried to restore from my back up and the message still comes up. So now, my phone does not turn off, unless I take the battery out. The screen of my phone says Reload Software 507. Any body have an idea as to what happened and how can I get my phone working. Thanks.

    Try a different usb port on the computer. Maybe even a different usb cable. I have no idea why but I have seen that error many times from dm from many phones. Usually changing to another usb port or another cable catches it again.

    It has been stated many, many times, that there is no way to modify service books so that you can use PIN messaging. BB Messenger runs through RIM's servers and without a Blackberry Data Plan, you can not access RIM's servers.

    Hey Frotto, I had the same problem. I followed the post # 677 from Iredline5 and everything works great. I have yet to update to the newest O.S. but everything works fine. Good LUCK, and let me know how it works out.

    By the way, since I am on here. What is the lastest O.S. out there, that is working ? I am running the v4.6.1.204 (Platform 3.0.0.73) Just wondering. I have noticed when I hook to my computer the B.D.M. wants to upgrade, but I cancel since it is working fine now. Let me know guys. By the way I love my phone and it may just be me but it seems to be working alot faster her lately. Thanks guys.

    Right now the latest version is 4.6.1.313 (Platform 3.1.0.31) you can get it from here if you like...BlackBerry - Update your Device Software BUT Read first!: I have tried to update to this version and ended up bricking my phone. Use the update at your own discretion. I am currently thinking of going with what you currently have ( 4.6.1.204 as I am hearing more and more it works well with boosters. I have just heard that the .313 update sucks for boost. I dont exactly know the reasons but like i said use at your own discretion! If the .204 is working for you then personally I would stay.

    Ok I did everything you said and All my MMS and Browser works fine. But the only problem I have now is that I am not able to recieve incoming calls, go straight to my voicemail and/or says the service provider is unavailable..Etc..? Why

    Is it because of the Service Book Tweaks might stop Voice ?

    First off I don't have smart dialing! I know I see it in the user manual but when I go to OPTIONS its not in the list. Then when I go forward anyway I get to the point when I am at DM and Backup Advanced and it immediately goes to transferring data with two progress bars but just remains there. That is where I get stuck. What am I doing wrong and why do I not find smart dailing?

    First, I've been off here for awhile b/c my home was robbed and my laptop went bye-bye. I hate people.

    Second, yes, if you remove your SIM you'll have to do the SBs again b/c it looses the function to send MMS. Not sure why that is, but it happens.
    I have a dumb question. This blackberry 8350i doesn't function like my boost phone (no kidding) . So, I think I did everything right to make it a boostberry and everything seems to work except the texting. How does one text from the blackberry 8350i? My other phones were much simpler. You would choose the contact, create and begin the text message.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I just wanted to say thank you so much for posting this!!! I got a blackberry and i needed to turn it into a boostberry, I took it to a local phone store and they charged me $40 to do it, and it had to be done a few times untill it finally worked properly. Now I am able to do it my self. This saves me money and time. Thank You again!!!!!!!!!!!!!
