How to Change the Default Contact List on Your Blackberry

Spring Cleaning Your Blackberry Contact List!

One gloomy spring day, you decide it’s time for some spring cleaning in one of your email accounts (Hey, it’s not nice outside, and you’d rather do this than the other things on your list). You empty your junk folder,create a new folder or two, delete a few old emails, and clean up your contact list. You figure, whatever, if I need them again, I have them on my Blackberry. Besides, this email isn’t  one that you really use anyway.

What is BlackBerry Bridge?

Perhaps you take the train to work. Maybe you carpool and you are squished in the backseat between two other passengers, and retrieving your BlackBerry from your pocket isn’t exactly an option.

Protecting your BlackBerry with BlackBerry Protect

Imagine Losing  your BlackBerry Smartphone – What Now?

Recently, I misplaced my glasses. Since I am nearsighted, this doesn’t generally pose a problem. That is, until  I try and leave the house. This often  leads to a tear around my house, looking in every conceivable place my glasses might have been, and results in me being 15 minutes late for wherever I was going, using my spare pair of glasses, which have seen better days.

Fortunately, if it is your BlackBerry you tend to forget, BlackBerry Protect helps to solve this problem.  [Read more…]

Finding Out About – Find My iPad

Have You Considered Using Find My iPad?

 

If you are anything like me, you absentmindedly set your keys/glasses/phone down somewhere, and then later, when of course you are running late, you can not find the said object, even if your life depended on it.
