    I Have Some Questions About The Curve?

    Advertisement



    I just recently moved up from a BB Pearl which isn't a bad phone but its not the best BB outthere.

    I loved the Curve yet I have a couple of questions that are kind of bothering me about the damn device. First off why is it that when ever I send an email I get a copy that comes out as a new email in my inbox. This happens when I send it by way of a PC or on my BB. Secondly, is there a better GPS application than BB maps that we can use? Because its kind of useless to me at this point. I rarely use it and when I do use it its only to try and figure out where I am on the world and well BB Maps doesn't have like a "showme where I am option" I don't know if there is such a profram for my BB but I think ill just get rid of the dam thing.

    That's about itzm I hopr some one can help.

    I thought maps did have a "my location"?
    Try google maps. Without a gps signal it'll triangulate using towers. With gps you can get within a close distance. I've watched myslef head down the interstate.

    As for the email thing. If you're using gmail, set a filter, or switch to IMAP, the new BIS fixed this without having to set filters. There's a link for each here on the stacks (wap, links difficult to post).

    I use Google Maps Mobile on my Blackberry.

    Gmail does send duplicate emails to your in box. What you can do is setup a filter to block those. The kicker is that you won't be able to get emails from yourself. I find that handy for reminders.

    Try this link and it should help you set up the gmail and the filters.


    I use Google Maps with Latitude. It's a nice app and easy to use. And FREE!

    Have you created a Blackberry Account yet? If you did it with your Pearl, you might need to call your carrier and have them link the account to the new pin. I had RIM tech support on the phone when I was having problems with my Bold and they said the account was still registered to my Curve. They fixed for me.. took a few minutes to do.
