Blackberry - "Field Full"


I have a Blackberry 7100g. Not because I'm some business person... but merely because I'm a net junky & this just made sense. 😁

So anyway - when I want to post something on a message board... or frankly... I'm talking about my livejournal 🤭 it gives me the "field full" message rather early on in the field. I don't understand why. It's not the website... & I've typed much more on my computer... but the damn crackberry won't accept it. Is this a setting I can change... tweak... or am I screwed?

BTW - I would have posted this in the RIM forum if there were any living souls there... & I tried the Development forum & apparently everyone is dead there as well.

Help? 😢

I was looking for a phone (preferably Sprint) that is capable of tethering with an Apple iBook. I used the phone finder but there was no option to select tethering or wether or not it would be mac compatable. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Verizon: Can I still make voice phone calls with just the data plan?

I'm considering a Verizon data plan ($80/month for unlimited MB). Reading the brochure, it lists a 25 cents/minute rate for "Other Data Services (e.g. Quick 2 Net, dial up connections)"

I like the Audiovox 6600 and would like to use that as a wireless modem for my laptop. It would mostly be used for that, but I would also like to be able to make and receive occasional phone calls. I don't mind paying 25 cents/minute for the voice phone service, as my voice needs would be minimal. Since my voice needs are so low, I really can't justify $35/month for a voice plan on top of the $80/month for the data plan.

Can anyone advise if this will work? I'm also curious what voice "goodies" if any I would have access to, like call forwarding, v...

Research Question - How Many Current 3G Subscribers by Provider?

I would appreciate any help or referring articles that can tell me the number of current data customers for the following providers:

1. Verizon's CDMA EV-DO service (both phone and data card - if separate, even better)
2. Sprint PCS' current CDMA 1xRTT service (both phone and data card as above)
3. Cingular Wireless' UMTS service (which is available in six markets so far)
4. T-Mobile's nationwide HotSpot service ($29.99 for unlimited access at over 5,400 locations nationwide)

And finally (if possible), approximately how many regular users of Wi-Fi not subscribing to T-Mobile's HotSpot service.

The latest nationwide numbers would be great. Also is there any way that the data can be extrapolated for a particular market? Thank you f...

Novatel V620 and PowerBooks - We got em talking!


Apple provided drivers built-into Mac OS X 10.3.5 that support the Sierra PC 5220 card for Verizon's BroadBandAccess. The problem, the PC 5220 card is not that available (soon completly out) and Verizon, is pushing the Novatel V620, which is not compatible with PowerBooks.

Until today!

We had a group of volunteers working on getting it working and we did last night.

Question for Rich...

I hear a lot of talk about 802.11 (b, g, n, etc.) standards, UMA standards, UMTS standards, all sorts of standards. I would assume that a "standard" is a way of making sure all devices using that technology work the same way, and are all compatible. My question is, who decides what these standards are?

Bluetooth Adapters for non-bluetooth phones

Can someone give me more information about this? Is this available and what will you be able to do using the adapter?

All I am looking to do is have a phone that will also be able to sync up with my bluetooth enabled vehicle (Chrysler / UConnect). Would using an adapter on a non-bluetooth work for this?

Thanks for any advice!
