How To Enable EVDO BroadbandAccess On Version BlackBerry 7250
Our investment in the 7250 paid out, Verizon came out with firmware 4.0.2.41 and we just add the feature code added in and now I see 1XEV when I connect. When I get home have to test is a IP modem. They gave us VZAccess Software to configure it.

Where did you get the software from and the feature code from?

please provide details.

thanks.

KonTiki 11-21-2005 08:16 PM

What is the feature code?

tomryan 11-21-2005 09:23 PM

Just call verizon and ask for broadband access connect.. supposedly its "free"..

thegallier 11-21-2005 09:35 PM

I read this earlier and called VZW and the tech support person I spoke to didn't have clue what I was talking about...go figure.

Wow.....I'm excited....
Of course I love my 7250 anyway--EVDO is just gravy...

KonTiki 11-21-2005 10:03 PM

is the link

Jase88 11-21-2005 10:08 PM

Darn...you need a VZW phone number to access it....

Anyone test it on a non-VZW 7250 yet?

Joe1004 11-21-2005 10:16 PM

Contacting my rep
 
I have fired off an e-mail to my account rep to find out what the deal is with the "Broadband Access" addition to the account.

I can't put the software on mine yet. The darn cable is at work because I never need it!! In early in the morning, that I know!

Jase88 11-21-2005 10:34 PM

I believe "Broadband Access" allows you to tether to a laptop or computer for data access. It's a $15 option.

rsun 11-21-2005 10:59 PM

Yes, we had to pay an addition $15 on top of our unlimited BlackBerry/data plan.

For what? For a "Broadband Access" option to allow you to tether, or to simply allow your Blackberry to communicate on the EVDO network?

When I had a Verizon 7250 a few months back, my accounts (online) said unlimited BB/EVDO for $40 (combo voice/data for $79.99 deal).

So, do you have to pay extra for EVDO or only if you want to tether?

word2218 11-21-2005 11:34 PM

has anyone tried the software update with their vzw 7250 yet?

I called tonight and they said it was only supposed to be available with their b2b customers.. if you are not a b2b customer, and you update with the software.. you'll lose connectivity because they will be unable to update your account

dkmadrid 11-21-2005 11:58 PM

I am on the phone with VZW as I type and he has confirmed the EVDO firmware upgrade. You are not able to tether with this feature but it does enhance the browsing capabilities of the handheld along with the other features identified in the link above. There is no cost to add the BroadbandAccess Connect to your plan and it is NOT only for B2B customers. I'm getting set up now and will update in a moment with the outcome.

I'm excited like a kid on christmas...

Why would you want to go to the store when there is a link in this thread to it?

I heard that 12/1/05 the tethering option will be released to the rest of us and it will be an additional $15.
