    .
    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 ...
  2. 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 ...

    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 ...

  6. 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

  7. Desktop Manager - Installing, Media Manager, and Vista

    by , 11-28-2008 at 07:35 AM
    Although Desktop Manager is fairly straight forward, there are some subtle issues with installing it. Here are some general and specific guidelines for dealing with them.

    1. Always uninstall an older version of Desktop Manager before installing a newer version. Usually using the Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs (XP) or Programs and Features (Vista) will suffice. However, some older versions don't uninstall cleanly. If you're having strange problems after upgrading from version

  8. Google's Mobilizer

    by , 10-19-2008 at 11:58 AM
    Ever get an email with a web link, but when you click the link you get to a complex web page that renders terribly on your BlackBerry?

    Well the Real Estate Company my Wife works for recently upgraded their web site, and although it does look great on a computer, it went from being barely usable to completely unusable on a BlackBerry!

    Now having access to her listings on her BlackBerry is something I'd call useful which is where Google's Mobilizer comes in.

    .
    First up, it looks like may be able to upgrade your OS over the WEB! IE 6 or higher is required, but BlackBerry KB16071 points you to the BlackBerry Device Software page where, if you're using IE 6 or higher, you'll see an [Upgrade] button.

    OK, it's not quite that simple. You have to install a Web Installer package, and the Upgrade ...
