Texas Hold\'em King 2
This weekend’s contest is entitled ‘Share Your Blackberry Tips’. Rules are simple, just post a Blackberry tip or two that you think would benefit other Blackberry users. The winner will be chosen randomly and will be announced Monday morning.

This week’s prize is a bit different because everyone is a winner. By being generous and sharing your tips we will return the favor and send everyone that enters a free copy of Texas Hold’em King 2 by Magmic. However, there is also a grand prize in the way of the Card Game Bundle by Magmic which includes: Blackjack, Cribbage, Euchre, Freecell, Hearts, Klondike, Spades, Spider Solitaire and Texas Hold’em 2.

    In situations where you are on pager support, adjust your profile so the SMS messages are in the Vibrate, Tone, or Vibrate+Tone setting.

    This will allow silence on your standard email coming through Outlook but create a different notification for direct messages

    If you want to maintain a healthy marriage, try shutting the Blackberry off for a couple of hours when you spend time on weekends with your family. Believe it or not, there is an off button.

    avoid spam

    use a gmail account, forward all your mail to it and then set it to forward to @blackberry.net account, gmail will pick up but not forward you spam.

    even better have bwc client autosent outgoing emails to gmail. setup a filter not to forward you back those emails and they will link in conversation mode.

    oh want google maps for the blackberry, try http://www.freek.ca

    T-Mobile Curve users who want to download and use the opera mini browser but are having problems….I figured out a foolproof way to make it work….

    1. Go to an area where your phone says EDGE in the top right corner.
    2. If you have already downloaded opera, go into OPTIONS>ADVANCED>APPLICATIONS and delete it.
    3. Turn off your phone and pull the battery to reset it.
    4. When the phone restarts, go to OPTIONS>ADVANCED>TCP and enter wap.voicestream.com where it says APN. Leave username and password blank.
    5. Go into the blackberry browser and go to http://www.operamini.com and click on download link for opera mini 4.0
    6. Before you click the download button, go into browser OPTIONS>CACHE OPERATIONS and delete all cookies,history,pushed content,everything.
    7. After it finishes deleting, click the download button
    8. After opera downloads, click ok. Do not press run!
    9. Go into the browser menu and select CLOSE to close the blackberry browser.
    10. Now you can click the opera icon. When it gets to the page where it shows the usage agreement, you have to hit the menu button go get the ‘I accept’ option. click that and you’re good to go!
