  1. Restoring items locked by BES connection

    .
    If your BlackBerry is connected to a BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES), there are many items contained in a full or partial backup that can not be restored as long as your BlackBerry is "connected" to the BES. This is because these items are automatically backed up to the BES, and therefore can not be overwritten as long as your BlackBerry ...

    I really do try to keep the Mini Version Tracker list up to date, but it's now grown to about 225 Applications, and my time has grown short!

    I went through the apps this morning, and made several additions and updates.

    Feel free to comment here if you're aware of newer versions available, or (worse) broken links ...

  3. Looking for an app? You'll probably find it at GetJar

    .
    One of the great things about the BlackBerry is that it's pretty much a standard Java device, and as such, can run many generic Java applications that are developed for the thousands of other Java devices available.

    I came across a site that hosts nothing but Java programs called GetJar several years ago, and troll it's waters ...

    .
    LONG before PinStack had a Blog, I posted an item called Separate Messages with Saved Searches. The purpose of this post was to try to help users that didn't like having all their email - both BES and BIS - in the Messages folder.

    Personally, I like having all my email in one place - especially since I have six BIS accounts as ...

    The following will only work if your device is running OS 4.3 or higher, and requires a computer running Windows 2000 or later.

    For instructions on clearing IT Policy on a device with an earlier OS, check here.

    With the advent of OS 4.3, it is now a comparatively simple task to clear IT Policy and return the device ...

  6. It's Raining Weather Apps

    Since my first Java BlackBerry, I've loved Weather applications. In fact, I still use the first weather app I ever had - BBWeather. It may have even been the first application I ever installed on a BlackBerry!

    Anyway, a while back yet another weather app appeared cleverly named Weather! It's kind of an updated version of BBWeather. ...

  7. OnToCalendar added

    Found this item posted on BerryReview, and although kkwus74 posted it on PinStack yesterday, I thought I'd post it here anyway - especially for those poor saps (LIKE ME) that bought AddToCalendar only to be left high and dry!

    This is essentially the same thing. Once installed, the item Onto Calendar is added to the menu of an open ...

    There seem to be three regularly posted SMS questions:
    • How long is an SMS message?
    • How can I send a message longer than the SMS Limit?
    • Do I need a BlackBerry Data Plan to send a Text message?

    __________________________________________________
    In answer to the first question, the answer is 1,120 BITS which can be 160 ...

    I happened across this little gem this morning. Go to the site, and enter in either the requested information (sex, weight, what you plan to drink, and over how long a period), and it will give you an estimate of what your Blood Alcohol Level will be at the end of the festivities. Pretty clever!

  10. Quick & Easy Switching Between Apps

    by , 12-10-2008 at 09:49 AM
    Appropriately, since this tip is about multitasking, it's actually several tips in one! I don't know about you, but when I'm "on" my BlackBerry, I'm usually switching between two or three apps. OK, one is usually a game, but that is still an app! So here's the short version of the tips:
    1. Hit the [End] (red handset) key to "drop" an application to the background and return to the Home screen.
    2. Assign a Convenience Key to Application Switcher.
    3. Tap the Convenience Key to
