BlackBerry Development is typically difficult because of the amount of different operating systems / carriers / phones.

There are 2 aspects to this plugin

1) The vBulletin code
2) The BlackBerry App

If you have issues, you can provide this thread with the following:
  1. Your Forum URL
  2. Make and Model of your BlackBerry
  3. Operating System Version (4.5+)
  4. Your Provider
  5. The problem you are having

This app has been tested on ALL simulators for BlackBerrys with OS 4.5+ Installed. (Pearl, Curve, Bold, Bold 2, Gemini, Storm, Storm 2etc.. )

vBulletin Install

- Download the attached vBulletin Code
- Unzip to your forum root directory.
- There will be one file in your root named mobiforum.php and a new directory called m_functions
- Find the config file in /m_functions/config.php and edit it to your needs
- Change the icon "forum_large_icon.png" to your forum icon.

BlackBerry Install

OS 4.5+ and OS 4.7 Storm / Storm 2

Use your BlackBerry browser to surf to:

If you can't see our mobile download page, surf to

Once installed:

- Open the software
- Press the "BlackBerry Key" and select "Add Forum"
- Type in the full to your forum, (where you extracted your zip file), including backslash.

That should be it. Your forum should be listed and you can now surf using your blackberry, natively. Use the "options" menu when you are viewing your forum to sign in.

This software comes with an Update Check for your BlackBerry, so you should only need to install it once on your phone and it will check for Updates everytime you connect with it.

You will (as a forum administrator) have to keep up with the updates on the vBulletin side however.

Note: Your typical data usage charges apply when using this.

I will do my best to supply as much support as possible for all your phone types / forums.

Please make sure you post a LINK to your forum so that I can test it on my own BlackBerry as well as add it to the list above.

As requested! High res photo's.

I get reboots but figure that I am not waiting long enough for the process to finish overloading the blackberry causing it to reboot. I have the 8330 on alltel/verizon. I have yet to have a reboot when taking my time. But there is a long wait time or load time.

I can't seem to reproduce the error on the simulator unfortunately, and i dont have pearl hardware (yet). I will have to look into it.

Make sure you are running the latest OS on your phone. The Pearl is slightly older, so you may not be able to run the software
I'll triple check if I have the latest OS and get back to you on the error.

I installed it on

I could not get it to work until I left off the trailing slash after" forum". I am using a 8330 Curve from Verizon. So far, it works great!

I really loved my Storm and am currently loving my Storm 2. I just hate being 'second class citizens' in the blackberry world when it comes to compatible apps. I would really like to have this app.

In the meantime, if there are any Novalogic Fans out there:

I've installed the server files.

Nothing is stored on my server, this is all on your server / your blackberry.

The only thing that BerryBlab connects to check on my server is for the latest updates.
