S4BB Rolls Out Beta 4 Release Of Data Backup For BlackBerry

May 5th, 2010

databackup_beta4_9700_mainscreen_169x293 Now, S4BB has put in a lot of bug fixes and updated the application to have more features. Essentially if you are in need of a data backup solution and don’t mind being a beta tester, this is something you may want to look into signing up for.

Rather then making use of cloud storage, Data Backup stores all your information directly to your already in place SDCard or internal device memory. Cloud storage is always a good option but personally, I like to keep my backups in more than one place. Running this app and a cloud based solution helps keep a back up always available should the need ever arise.

BIS Two-Way Sync for Gmail Finally Live?!!

May 3rd, 2010

bis3_0nao Over the weekend we had tons of reports that two-way Gmail sync on BIS was finally alive and kicking. The feature should allow for synching of both read/unread messages, as well showing sent messages on your device that were composed in the Gmail web app. While it doesn’t seem to be working for everyone (myself included), it looks like a ton of users are up and running. I did manage to get my sent messages to sync up, however anything beyond that is a no go on my end. So we want to know if its working for you. Leave a comment and let us know (yay or nay) and be sure to include your device/carrier information as well. We’ll keep you updated as we find out more. Thanks to everyone that sent this in!

HowTo Reboot Your BlackBerry

April 29th, 2010

Well, this is short task but sometimes you might need it. Some programs out there like the free VoIP application BBCalls, BerryDialer or the vCardMaster still need a reboot after installation. Why? Because they are plugging functionality into the BlackBerry OS. You can for example set up the BerryDialer for using calling cards by entering your calling card numbers. Then you just go to your address book because you want to call somebody. In the address book’s menu you can find a command that directly calls your contact using the calling card. So getting this command shown you need to reboot your BlackBerry.

But how to reboot the BlackBerry?

BlackBerry 9670 custom-made for Verizon?

April 28th, 2010

blackberry9670-leak The just recently uncovered BlackBerry 9670 may have been made just for Verizon and its partner Vodafone if a leak on Wednesday is truthful. Verizon reportedly called on RIM to create the custom design and even supplied the hardware criteria, which included a five-megapixel camera, the clamshell QWERTY design and a new interface, which is now likely to be BlackBerry OS 6.0. It would be an exclusive in the US for Verizon and would get a Vodafone GSM equivalent in Europe.
