Configure Your BlackBerry for Internet Access

Unlock the PC in your BlackBerry by giving it a TCP/IP stack.

When you access your BlackBerry Browser, you are communicating in a limited way through a gateway of sorts. Your BlackBerry doesn’t need its own IP address to communicate in this fashion. You can, however, depending on your provider, enable TCP/IP on your device. This allows your device to communicate directly (well, almost directly) with machines on the Internet.

Enabling TCP/IP on your device gives you access to many of the network-enabled third-party applications for the BlackBerry, some of which are highlighted in this book. If you are not a BlackBerry Enterprise Server user, this hack will give you many of the functions of the BES and MDS without being BES enabled.
