    Thumbs up Straight Talk and My BOLD 9700 - BlackBerry Bold app ?


     
    After years of service I was finally completely irritated with the pricing for ATT. So I ditched my ATT service and got Straight Talk. So far I have been happy with the service. Although* not so satisfied with my new E71. I unlocked my bold last year because I am required to travel abroad for work. In any case. My Straight Talk sim works fine in my bold to TXT and CALL but data seems to be another issue. I was wondering if there was a way to get the DATA to work on my Blackberry?

    Still requires a data plan* I couldnt even do it via wap without it.

    Does it have BlackBerry data though? That is the important part. The service books are sent to the phone* which allow the phone to be used to its fullest. Without those* you are stuck where you are right now* with a phone that half works.


    Just browsed the Straight Talk website* and there is no mention of any BlackBerry device or data plan available. I cannot find anything on Google about it* so my guess is that it simply will not work.

    StraightTalk does not have BB support. I believe the only prepaid company that does in the US is T-Mobile.

    As stated* youll need to go with T-Mobile regular plan if you want a BIS or BES plan* which are needed to get what you desire and the full capabilities of your device.

    I bought a verizon blackberry 9650. It is unlocked. Can I modify the service books to get it to work on Straight talk? Do you still have the link for it?


    Thanks

    If you have a GSM blackberry* you can sign up with simplemobile. They are a new prepaid MVNO that runs on the T-Mobile network and they support BB
