    I've been trying to get my 6280 up and running for a bit now. Issue i've run into now is I can't get this thing to connect to the internet. I've been following the bold explorer guide, and tried to import anworm's wifi_gprs service books (which worked fine on my 7290 running bbos 4.1) onto my 6280 but when I try to import them it just gives me an error saying they aren't compatible. I've tried splitting the ipd file up to see if maybe just one of the service book entries would work but still nothing. Phone was wiped and has no prior service book entries I can work off of

    My 6280 is on bbos 4.0, Were ipd files different pre 4.1 vs post 4.1? Does anyone have pre 4.0 service books I could try tweaking, or schooling me on service books a bit?

    This very well may be a waste of time but it's a bit of a personal challenge to me to see what the oldest blackberry I can still get use out of(Despite hopw terrible web browsing will be on a monochrome screen)

    Isn't that an non-WiFi device that requires 2G network... Does your carrier offer 2G?

    What tool do you use to extract the books? I have several 62xx 67xx in stock and might find some for you.

    Just a simple observation. That's really cool of you to remember and help out each other.
