does anyone know if you can browse the web with this thing?
Not good news, but I have some.
This blackberry will allow you to have the push email coming from 10 different ISP's. That's more than ever before and the color screen is larger on the Verizon model than it is on other providers like Nextel.
#1 Buy and install blackberry enterprise server. When you synch to the server the first time it automatically installs the blackberry browser. Once install you can browse the web on verizon's network if you subscribe to the national access plan.
#2 download the reqwireless browser and subscribe to a wap access service. The browser will cost you about $20 and the service about $50 for the year.
I have the bes method and it works great however you have to be willing to shell out about $800 to get it going. I haven't tried the other method but I heard it works. Also rim is launching a new bes version in august which will allow users to view pictures (jpegs etc).
