Unlock 7290

I was for 20 minutes on the phone with the AT&T customer service regarding my Blackberry Device.

I recently moved to Europe and I got this Blackberry from a friend. In order to the Blackberry to be unlocked the woman on the phone told me either to send a bunch of info to a fax number, or get into phonescoop.com and ask if there is a way of getting the unlock code for this device with the IMEI code. Does any of you have an idea of what to do?

Thanks a lot in advance!!!

default screen

When I remove the 7290 (tMobile) from the holster it displays the phone menu (call log, my number, etc.) instead of the home screen, even though I don't even use the phone feature on this device. Is there a way to change this default to say the home screen, or, my email inbox?

Thanks, Scott

HELP 7290 OR 7280 OR ???

I'm having information overload and need major advise!

I'm self-employed and travels all over North America. I think I've narrowed down my options to the 7290 or 7280 - but there is a $300 price difference. Is the difference worth the money?

I need the blackberry because of the emails. I've never had a blackberry, so I'm not sure what i really need. To narrow it down I need to make phone calls and send/recieve emails...

Is there a better option?

Any advise will help...Thanks!

PLEASE ASSIST Cool

Word & Excel

Hi I am new to the world of Blackberry and I wanted to know if you were able to edit,compose and save Word and Excel documents on this blackberry. I see "view attachments" but that makes me think that you can dowload and view the attachment and send it to someone but not that you can edit a document or even create your own document. My friend is going to Law School and she is looking for a PDA phone. She wants something that supports those applications. I told her to go with the Treo 650 but she likes the blackberry better and the Treo is a bit pricey. Although the price of the Treo is well worht it in my eyes, its for her im looking and she wants something a little more affordable. If we cant find anything then we will have to simply find h...

I am shopping for a t-mobile 7290 without a contract extension and i was looking on ebay. somebody just listed 10 with new activation/extensions only and said that is the only way they are allowed to sell it. I checked on the T-Mobile website and the 7290 is no longer listed!

Does the Blackberry hotsync to Microsoft Outlook Easily?

I am researching Palm Treo 650 and Blackberry 7290. Palm will hotsync with Microsoft Outlook folders easily with the Palm software. Does anyone know about the Blackberry software? I am looking specifically for the calendar/task list and then a public folder - contacts!
