121 BlackBerry Tips

33 Comments

Thumbs UpInsideCRM has just busted out a great list of resources spanning the whole BlackBerry community, and covering topics from simple keyboard shortcuts to highly recommended software. There are a lot of layers of functionality to a BlackBerry, and this list of links is a great tool to help you dig through ‘em. One new tidbit I found out was how to dial letter numbers like 1-800-GOOG-411 by holding down the ALT key. There was also a guide on there for installing BlackBerry apps through Mac OS X, which I’m sure some Mac users out there would appreciate. I’m a little sad not to see Viigo on that list, though… Thanks Amy!

    Has anyone figured out whether there is a workaround for the keyboard shortcut to switch between SureType and MultiTap on the 8130 as there was on the 7130? It sure is a pain to have to use the menu to do this.

    Thanks.

    i WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BUYING A BLACKBERRY DIRECT FROM THE MANUFACTURER VERSUS GETTING ONE FROM T-MOBILE USA. I WANT TO GET THE NEW 8820.

    Hi All…..I just dropped and broke my 1st Blackberry (bought a refurb w/ contract w/ATT 6 months ago) it’s an old 7100 series – worked great – need to replace it immediately, today, in your opinion, is it OK to buy one on EBAY? Also I need to know what model to buy – it needs to be durable, good screen (I surf a lot on it) and be CHEAP! I need to have it shipped today so I would so appreciate it if someone can email me right away at susan@curacaoliving.com with your reccomedation for the model I need – care about function – do not care about style or color! PLEASE HELP!

    my 8 month old bb curve has officially taken a dump. I have had problems with it freezing up( the hourglass just keeps turning round and round) I originally thought it was that i may have to many ring tones on my phone which was not the case and then I decided to buy a 2gb micro sd card for it, but it still gave me problems, it also started to delete messages that someone had sent me a few hours ago, and now just yesterday started saying with a blank white screen saying “app error 523, then directly underneath it says ” reset” when you scroll to the reset button it tries to reset it but just goes back to that same screen. I am first time user of the blackberry and love it, now that it does not work I am lost and feel lost, i am starting to want to move towards the iphone. I hear that in a few months apple will release a 3g iphone, so i am going to wait it out, and see how my refurbished bb works.
    thanks

    Bex – log in to your Blackberry Internet Service account through your carrier’s login page, which can be found by googling “[your carrier] BIS login”. From there click on Email accounts, then the Edit button for the account you want to change.

    Go to blackberry desktop software and click on the switch devices button. Follow the instructions, should do the trick.

    its really easy… log into blackberry internet service… or e-mail options on phone, then change the signature for the account to blank or whatever else you want.
