    Hi everyone... I have done alot of research on this and other forums, and have recently bought a BB 7520 and use my Boost card in it (Boostberry)
    I works great so far!! I have a few question I would like to ask though.. this is what I have so far:

    Opera Mini (FREE)
    Hello World GPS (FREE)
    iSkoot for Skype (FREE)
    JiveTalk (Free to try 19.95 license) (I lovr it, and its worth it)
    IMobileMail (Free to try) its ok.. but you have to pay
    Google maps (FREE) it only gov me an option for BT GPS though.. did I install the wrong one??

    My questions are....

    1. I have seen somewhere before that there is a workaround or fix so you can download OTA.. (currently while browsing in Opera and you try to DL OTA it opens BB Browser and says no service) I know I have seen that its possible to fix this, BUT can't find it now.. Any Ideas??

    2. What other OTA programs are any of you currently using on your 7520.
    3. Which is better 7520 or 7100? I ordered a 7100 it should be here soon
    4. Is there a way to link / Sync my outlook contacts and calender eith my BB with my setup

    Thanks for any advice and help!!!

    wow never thought i would see a boostberry post here my first blackberry was a boostberry 7100i i had all the apps you are currently running and i never found away to download OTA but i was able to set up microsoft outlook to sync my contacts,notes,tasks etc. i was able to install themes via DM. i couldn't take it though i wanted to used my blackberry for what it was meant to be used for. so i upgraded to 8700g and switched carriers but it was fun having a boostberry

    I got a Blackberry 7520 and did some research online on how to hook up txtn and web browsing and such. No luck yet. My head is hurting from looking at the computer screen for so long trying to find something that will help me get this going. I cannot access the web to download any 3rd party programs for this. I do have the boost web available on my account. Can someone please help me get this going. I need step by step or something.

    Thanks,
    Tanya

    I purchased my first Nextel Blackberry 7100i on Ebay and after getting a new battery and finding a charger from a friend I was able with much help from you guys on the forums and trying it many times over a rainy weekend to connect it to Boost Mobile and create a BoostBerry. Great!

    After a month, my screen on the 7100i died - bad lcd - couldn't return it to ebay so I went looking to find a Nextel 7100i - this time with a warranty. Not easy to find. Idid locate one place that sells Boostberry 7100i with a one year warranty - www boostberry com

    Has anyone heard about them? are they reliable?

    thanx

    I'm right there with you! New to all of this. I bought my 7520 off of ebay and they told me that I could have this up and running with something like Opera and I've only run into trouble.

    I have the Nextel 7100i running on the boost network. I liked it so much I bought a used 8350i tonight and will flash it to be used on Boost also. The 7100i is nice but it's archaic compared to the 8350i. I had a Motorola i776 and was not pleased at all. Even though the 7100i doesn't have a camera or a MP3 player it's still better than the phone I had before. You guys have been a wealth of information and i now have a new hobby.

    I have searched the internet and It is possible and there are alot of people who use it. Ive searched the web workaround and the sms workaround. But my questions is, if I buy the BB 8350i would I have to buy it unlocked? Or would I have to unlock it myself or is it possible to convert it without unlocking it.
