    GS-911 and old Blackberry

    I aquired a old Blackberry that is no longer activated. Is there a way to get the GS-911 software loaded on it?

    Looked at that

    Thanx, but I checked that before I posted. It seems that will only work if the phone is active. Since the phone is not active, it does not have access to email, internet, etc.

    I was hoping to find the full software and get it dumped to the phone somehow (Bluetooth?) so that is would run the GS-911. I would like to make the old Blackberry part of my tool kit with the GS-911...

    Can you borrow a SIM card from a working phone long enough to download the GS911 software? Or try asking your question on the Hexcode support forum.

    does your blackberry have wifi? That might make it easier. Otherwise my guess is you'll have to borrow a sim card from someone or turn it on for a bit.

    Also, be alert to putting this into your toolkit and then finding the battery dead when you need it most. Using active phones/devices that are always kept charged for use makes the battery issue a little less sensitive.

    Which model of BB are you working with? The above poster is correct that most BBs have wifi so you can turn that on and perhaps bring the file you need over from a laptop that you have downloaded it to on your home network. If that is not possible, it might be worth it to fire it up and pay for a month of service simply to download the file and get it working. I did this a couple years ago and now carry the BB with me (with a charger that can be plugged in at a motel stop to keep it fresh), then use bluetooth to connect to the bike when/if you need it.
