    Hmmmm, I would think not. It would have to have an IR port on the BB to make that work. Plus an app to control it.

    If you had the Samsung XV6700 will operate a new Samsung TV...My old roomie had the phone and the TV and could control it with his phone. But I think that's about it.

    Most any phone that has infrared can be programmed for that. Sadly, the BB does not have infrared.

    The thing is that most don't have a good enough IR emmitter to be worth while for anything outside of about 5 feet, so this function was really useless as the better emmitters would have made the devices more expensive and most consumers didn't want to foot the bill for functions that they would never utilize. Heck most are too cheap to purchase data, do you really think that they could care if their device could be a remote as well?? We are definitely in the minority as tech driven.
