Cannot register a pocketedge?

Hi! I'm new to the site and the pe. So I'm sorry if this has been answered recently, but I've read through and nothing seems to work for me. I purchased a pocketedge and when I go to use the Store app it tells me to register, then gives me a "Network Connection error. code 80." I've tried several dozen times!
Have they brought their site down for good? Is there anyway I can get past this and browse/purchase things from the store without registering?
Do I need to manually update the os using the usb tips?

Sorry for all the questions and thank you for your time!

Are you connected to the internet when you try to register? Can you get online in the browser or email?

Might try a reset.

Hey, thanks for the quick reply. I can get online using the browser, and check my email using the email app. I did push the reset button but it didn't actually reset it. It just started up like normal.

Was the unit new? If it has been registered before you wouldn't be able to do it again.

You might also try at off peak internet hours, I had problems trying during a busy time, then later went right through.

I bought it as a "new unit", who knows now days though. I was trying randomly through the night, it just would never register. Is there anyway I can find out if it was registered before so I can file for a refund asap if it is used?
Is there a special trick for this reset button? Do I have to stand on my head while pushing it in? heh

Thanks so much for your replies, by the way!

What you are trying to do will never work - Entourage closed the store when they closed up shop. The store app is a redundant appendage and all you can do is ignore it.

If you are looking for apps you could start with: http://www.freewarelovers.com/android

Be aware that Ermine is a beta build and not all apps work with the PE. Also you will need to use a USB stick and the correct update.zip to update to Ermine. There are several threads that will give you the information you need.

Angry entourage website...

Is likely gone. Over the last 3-4 days I have tried to access it to only get the timeout message. However, all is not lost the register screen can be bypassed by clicking in the LCD screen in a particular order as shown in the graphic.

I have a new PocketEdge - just arrived yesterday - and I would love to go to the "Welcome To Your PocketEdge" page that they show in the image, but I can't. It goes directly to the Connect to WiFi page, which starts the whole registration process. I've even tried resetting the darned thing - doesn't work. What am I doing wrong? TIA.

In case you haven't gotten it yet, although perhaps you have! , follow Gunner's instructions from the Connect to Wi-Fi page. Once you have that page showing, click in the areas shown on the right-hand diagram in his post in the order it says to click. After that you won't be asked to register and you should have full functionality of your device.


It's a sad truth that all good things must end, even enTourage.

Cheers for all the replies! I updated the pe to Ermine and did the youtube - my channel "trick" to sign my google accounts into everything. Also thanks so much for the link ivanjt. I'll be checking it out now. It sucks so much that entourage pulled down support for this product, but I'm sure there is still tons of fun to be had with it!

Is there an e-book site that works for Ermine? One of the main reasons I got this item is for the e-book reader.

Again, thank you all so much for helping me. You all have a very nice community here!

Hi Honeypie, welcome!

You can get books for an eDGe running Ermine from any ebookstore/library that has .epub or .pdf books. Here are a couple of threads that talk about it:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=142043
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=144587

And if you want to read on the LCD side, many of the Android reader apps work well. I have Kindle and FBreader installed on mine (although I mostly read on the e-ink side).

Enjoy!!
