Great news! Download this Bridge update. If you have AT&T, don’t choose the update via Appworld, as the tyrannical carrier limits Bridge functionality to email and BBM, contacts and calendard functions only. The previous Bridge from here allowed the BridgeBrowser. This release is the best, as it lets all apps use the bridge, when WiFi is turned off (except APPWorld and possibly PodCasts).
I’m using the OS5 Bridge on the original Bold 9000. Looking forward to higher speeds in the near future! Gotta love simultaneous voice and data without a 3rd data plan or tether charge. Can also use local data on the BBerry 9000, and have a data session from a laptop using the program Tether. Nice! Do all this, and still stay on those conference calls.
Gotta love it when it works together!
