Re: Dear. Att

This is a customer forum designed for customers to communicate with each other; it is not for contacting AT&T representatives. Try using the tech support chat or emailing/calling customer service.

If you have a Blackberry, try asking for alternatives in the Blackberry forum. If you have a different phone, tell us what it is. AFAIK, it's only on the Blackberry that you cannot use Yahoo (as AT&T will not support the Yahoo messaging service book). Someone may be able to help you find a different app for use on your (non-Blackberry) phone.

Re: Dear. Att

At&t Hide the Maps icon this is not far
They hide it so you will beforced to use the telenav
And they block the Wap.yahoo.com from the phone so you are force to use the OZ program

OZ use the SMS to send Msg
blackberry Yahoo used the web

Blackberry Maps is not hidden, it's just not installed. Go download it.

Re: Dear. Att

The maps are on the Phone but the Vendor Code 102 (att) has it block

But when you dowload it again the vendor con is not in the program so you will be able to see it


All im trying to say is.......


ATT block stuff so you will Use there vendors stuff so that make more money

like yahoo

There are a lot of vendors out there that have Yahoo MSN Aol that use WEB
But yahoo blocks the Wap.yahoo.com so it will not work
This way thay make you USE the OZ so thay can make more Money off of Us (when you use OZ your billed too and from IM )
so if you dont have a SMS Plan you use 2x the cost.
