    The settings mentioned in the document that DRod linked to are done on a company's BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

    From the link above, it looks like you have to do it from the BES if you are on an enterprise server. Not sure what to do if you are on BIS.

    This link also refers to MDS as a setting in the BES.

    if you are an enterprise user - you need to get your admin to turn on those rights.. if you are an enterprise user on blackberry professional software - right click on the user in bb manager and look at the text 9 from the bottom in the long list of things that show up - if it says "disable connection services" then mds IS ACTIVE.

    Not sure about those on BIS however..

    It doesn't look like it will work on your phone - the only Curve listed is the 8900.

    miami - when you say "working" do you mean you were able to log in and then got the file is not available message and then clicked ok and it came up and said "Thanks for installing - see you on the 13th" ? or did you see the promo video?

    The download for the BlackBerry Bold, Tour, Curve 8900 doesnt seem to be working for me. It says the page cannot be opened and then asks if I want to save the page. If I save I cannot open the file. Now the app for the Storm downloads and installs but of course wont run because I dont have the virtual keyboard. Anyone else having problems downloading and installing the app for the Bold, Tour, or Curve? I have the Curve 8900.
