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.

I am sure that there are many BlackBerry users out there who, like me, are absentminded and have a tendency of forgetting where things have been placed.

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

Why You Should Read Your Cell Phone Bill

“From the Fence with JP”

Most people have a cell phone of some sort, (Blackberry, Smart Phone, iPhone, ordinary Mobile Phone) some people have more than one (debatable if they are considered lucky or unlucky).
