What a pain, this shift in Daylight Savings Time has burned more IT cycles for less benefit than anything I can remember. In any case, a Blackberry is completely messed up, so check “Blackberry”:http://www.blackberry.com/DST2007/patch/index2.shtml for the patching needed.

Transaction error – Decryption Error

Connie has exactly this problem right now. In reading this long thread, it looks like the keys are somehow out of sync. Folks have tried installing a new version of the desktop manager, deleting all the service books and reregistering and sometimes that fixes it. Others have just tried regenerating these keys. So, I guess […]

Blackberry Unlocked or from Carrier

!>http://onlinestorez.cingular.com/cell-phone-service/images/equip/medium/medium_blackberry_8700.jpg!:http://mpire.com/buyers/results.page?query=blackberry+8700+unlocked Right now the carriers are only giving a $100 rebate on Blackberrys, so if you are going to use it and don’t want to get locked into a plan, it makes more sense to use “mpire”:http://mpire.com/buyer/results.page?query=blackberry+8700+unlocked+ to find one.

It called “mobile.blackberry.com”:http://mobile.blackberry.com and for some reason is buried in the help menu. The best way is to type it into your blackberry browser […]

These are usually […]

Blackberry Back From the Dead

I thought I had completely bricked Connie’s 7100. But thanks to the wonderful folks at T-mobile (double credit for helping me, really bad that it isn’t just on the web), I got it back.
