    Blackberry Users Frequently asked Question.

    Using AutoText:
    All BlackBerries have AutoText. This is a feature which allows you to enter a short word - such as "mynum" (sans quotes) and when you hit [Space] after the word it is translated into something else - like your cell phone number - automatically. The list of AutoText entries is maintained under Options --> AutoText. There is a long list of entries preloaded that are handy - like you can type "cant" and when you hit [Space] after the t it will automatically be changed to "can't". There are also system variables like %p and %P that are used that translate into your phone number (%p) and your PIN number (%P). You can type these system variables, or use AutoText to translate mynum into %p. I created an AutoText entry that converts "sig" into a signature for emails that uses %O which is the Owner Information entered under Options.

    T-Mobile U.S.A. GPRS, ISDN, and WAP settings

    This is a simple collection of settings for use with the T-Mobile (formerly VoiceStream) U.S.A. network. I have used these settings to configure my own GSM mobile phones and other devices such as PDAs and laptops. They may or may not be accurate at a given time and are compiled here in the hope that others may find them useful.

    I have no affiliation with T-Mobile other than being a customer for several years.
    T-Mobile GPRS settings

    T-Mobile GPRS settings for terminals (e.g., phone handsets). Some items are possibly Nokia-specific. I have found the authentication type can be either Secure or Normal.

    GPRS access point:
    IP address:
    Data bearer: GPRS
    Username: [none]
    Password: [none]
    Authentication type: Secure
    Connection security: Off

    T-Mobile ISDN settings

    T-Mobile ISDN settings for terminals (e.g., phone handsets). This is an ISDN dial-up number for WAP use only. Some items are possibly Nokia-specific. I have found the authentication type can be either Secure or Normal.

    Dial-up number: +1 913 244 0821
    Data call type: ISDN
    Data call speed: 14400
