BlackBerry Smartphones ICON question

I just noticed a new icon on my BOLD 9650, it looks like a circle with a cross through it and 3 curved lines to the right. This ICON appears in the upper right of the screen, just below the "3 G" ICON. Since I noticed this ICON, it seems that my battery goes down much faster than normal.

Thank you

  • BlackBerry smartphones my questions on the Storm 2 9520

    Hello everyone I do not have a Blackberry but I intend to update my phone soon and get a (I currently have a Nokia N95 8 GB). I looked through the list of Blackberry models, and the 9520 that I fell in love was the Storm 2 9520. I will probably get one, but I have several questions that I couldn't find clear answers on google. I'm picky about details on a phone, so I want to know everything before get you it. Here is the list of things that I had on my mind:

    -J' read that this phone records videos in 3gp format and not mp4. I'm a little worried about that, because I feel 3gp is less intense than mp4 by Windows (Win 7 user here). For example, 3gp, I filmed with an old phone years ago don't even open correctly in most players and no audio. So, is the format the phone records in playable correctly in Windows (Linux too)?

    -J' I always rename my pictures and my videos after taking. With the 9520, you can click a button or menu entry to rename an image / clip immediately after making it? Or they be saved with a name only automated, and you need to open your file browser and navigate to the file to be renamed?

    -A curiosity, I got on the touch screen if it is based only on the detection of heat or by pressing physics too. What I've seen, the heat detection is used when you lightly touch the screen and select the stuff / drag, while only pressing is used actually click. I'm curious because I could use my phone outside in the winter when I have leather gloves, and the screen can not detect my body energy then. Of course, it is difficult to use any phone with gloves, but I sometimes do to some extent

    -Use the charger micro-usb port, or another port? I know that some devices that use USB for charging and connection to the computer, which is a method that I prefer in general. No problem if it is not, just curious.

    -In the specs of the phone, it says maximum 8 GB micro-SD cards are supported. Someone can confirm that more cards are inconsistent and do not work (16 / 32 GB ones)?

    -J' read on a website that the only way to configure e-mail is to have a Blackberry Enterprise Server (do not exactly know what what). But you need to register with Blackberry using a classic IMAP / POP email account (like gmail or yahoo mail)? And besides, you need to register with any Blackberry service to use 3 G internet supplier or to use messenger (YIM MSN and AIM)? I'm guessing not, but always ask to be sure.

    -J' heard some phones have this limit / problem, so just to be safe: can put you MP3 transferred from your computer as ringtones? Or do you need to download them online from special services, as I heard some phones force you to?

    -J' read on several websites that there are complications with the installation of applications via the data cable. That's how I install most of my programs of others on phones. So if I have a jar or jad file on my desktop, is there no possible to install it via data cable unless I have an additional file with it? Same question for no java Blackberry applications.

    -All Web sites mention that the OS 5 web browser does not support flash on web pages (which I find quite sad). However, I can still play the files flash directly from my phone so I just open the swf file?

    -Can you play audio files in ogg / wav format? In addition, it can play video ogv, avi or mpeg?

    -Can I download themes for it that change the icons and colors of the menus? I guess the definition of custom screen (independent of the subject) shouldn't be a problem. Also, is there a free software that allows you to create your own themes and exporting it to the phone via data cable?

    -Are there also a front-facing camera for 3G video chat?

    -J' read on the differences between the 9520 and 9550 and that the 9550 has a frequency of additional network, sure it can work. Everyone says that you can not use a Blackberry in America if you buy it in Europe, in particular the 9520. Is this true? And the more vital than the 9520 9550 compatibility?

    -OS 6 will come to the 9520 too? Some sites say it won't, while than others whether in devices that it will support an update. Hope very much it will be

    -Finally, this could be a sensitive issue and I don't know how poorly seen on it is here. But it's easy to unlock / debrand the 9520? I would like to get the latest versions of firmware and do not have the limited phone.

    Someone mentioned the provider to branding is not done for commercial reasons, but in order to keep the compatible phone (and shouldn't even be illegal to debrand). So I think it should be ok.

    Yes, they are a lot of questions that may seem ridiculous. I got this phone for several years, so I want to know all about it. Thanks to all those who can help you meet them, and keep up the good work with phones

    3GP is the native video recording format. All you need is the codec on your PC to read. I downloaded a free transcoder and it not only transcode avi (and other formats) for me, but also to put the codec appropriate in what I can play natively without transcoding. QuickTime, I think a codec were also held. There are plenty of audio and the recorded video.

    In fact, storm BBs use two detection of heat as well as the physical press. It's called SurePress technology. Heat detection determines where on the screen you touch and then physical pressure activates the 'click' somehow. The entire screen is great physical button, whose activity is determined by your finger on the screen position when you press. As such, I doubt it'll work with gloves on at all. I know, on the ski slopes, I remove my glove to do something with my 9550.

    On the BB, a port for all functions. Micro USB for charging and attached USB data transfer. When connected to a PC with the drivers installed, the BB will be time load (from the USB port of the PC) as well as allow the transfer of data.

    But I'm not sure of your premises. You seem to be saying that you are locked in your level of update of carriers, as long as your BB is blocked. This is false. Unlocking is simply the function to allow your BB run on a network of different carriers... at the level of the BONE is irrelevant to that. You are free to use the carriers released OS for your specific model BB... There is just a tiny thing that you need to follow. But unlocking is not necessary to do so. There's nothing illegal or anything about unlocking. But it is useless unless and until you want to reverse your BB to another carrier.

    This happens usually when application runs in the background, or because of any unknown third-party application installed within our system, or due to lack of memory. Reboot to shoot some time A battery is enough to solve this problem. If press and hold the Menu for a few seconds, it will appear a screen that will display all the programs running in the background, usually five will always be there (host, BBM, Message, phone, browser) you can always check if any other applications. are running in the background, if they then close them properly.

    We should always try to close Applications correctly - avoid using key end to close the applications because it just minimizes the application and let it run in the background. Instead, press the Menu key, select close or Exit to exit the application. Do not leave your browser open on a page of Web active when not in use. If programs are running in the background, that this will lead to problems that you are experiencing now.

  • Missing Message of blackBerry Smartphones icon

    When I get a text message, it appears combined with my email list, with no separate indication that this is a message.

    Since I get a lot of emails (which much unnecessary to respond to), the message gets lost in the e-mail list.  As far as I know, the message only adds to the email envelope icon, which is pretty useless to distinguish a text message.

    Is it possible to have a separate mention when appears a text message?  And/or a record separated for text messages?

    Hello and welcome to the community!

    By default, all messages (e-mail, SMS, BBM, etc.) are put in the Messages main/app icon. Some people prefer this approach "unified messages", others prefer to keep things separate. Fortunately, the BB offers the possibility to split things according to your wishes.

    On older OS levels (for example, breast and below the level of OS5), there has been very little control over this split... basically, only being able to split the TEXT Messages from Messages to an icon that is theirs (controlled by the Options settings in the Messages app). But, with the later levels of the operating system, several orders were provided:

    For BES users, your BES Admin can push an E-mail BES icon only to your device. This solution is free, but must be conducted at the level of the BES server and will affect all users on the BES server.

    • KB15003 How to create an icon on the BlackBerry smartphone to BlackBerry Enterprise Server messages

    If your device operating system level (starting in OS5 and above) has the possibility, you can dictate what shows in Messages:

    • Home screen > Messages > > Options > (the main Message list settings) or (parameters of the Inbox) or (management of the Inbox)
    • Uncheck the box that you want to delete Messages, which allows a separate for those icon that uncheck you

  • Users of blackBerry Smartphones New questions

    Hi all - just got the Blackberry Curve 8900 yesterday and so far am liking it a lot.  I thought a lot of my questions, here are a couple that may be "duh" kinds of things, but I can't understand them:

    -I signed up for Viigo and downloaded the BB and looked at him for a while and then it closed. But now... can not know where it is or how to get in.  I think it is supposed to be an icon on the main screen, but there is no, and if I go in the folder apps, it isn't here either.

    -The same with Pandora.  I was listening to him last night, but this morning can not understand how to enter again.

    -I can't go to any of my work emails, which are both accessible from the web.  When I log into one, looks like it is loading up, but I get a blank screen; When I connect to another, I click on connection and it goes back to the login screen, no error message I can see.  (it's perhaps too specific to answer, I don't know-)

    -I would like to download Evernote.  On the Evernote page it tells me to click on the Blackberry applications page, but once I'm there, I can only find "featured apps", even though I know it must be a lot more -?  How can I get all the apps available on the Blackberry applications page?

    -I uploaded an image, but it isn't in my photo file.

    -When I put my my old phone t-mobile SIMS card in the BB and asked him to import the contacts, she won only the first number; in some cases, I got home, cell and work + E-mail numbers - do I have to type all that for each person?

    Sorry for all the questions - I guess it'll take me all day to get everything I like. Thanks for any help anyone can give me-

    -Viigo and Pandora, check your download folder, the folder Applications, the et.c

    -For your e-mail to work... they are configured to push on your device? Or you connect via the BlackBerry browser?

    -Open the media icon > Menu key (to the left of the trackball) > Explorer and look in all folders.

    -AddressBook > Menu > SIM Phone Book > let it open > Menu > copy everything in the address book.

    Good luck and welcome to the Forums.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones two Questions about BlackBerry Curve 8310

    Don't know if anyone can help, but I'm stumped.

    The first question has to do with the Messages folder.  I want my emails to show up ONLY in the e-mail folders.  I don't want the Messages folder to include e-mails (so don't want to be notified whenever I get a new email).  Is this possible?  I tried going the Messaging Options and to crack the SMS and email boxes, but then when I go to the folder of Messages from the hand of screen it displays only e-mail messages (I have to press the menu button, then select SMS Inbox to display SMS messages).  I don't want e-mails during the message folder.  Is this possible?

    Second question has to do with the deletion of multiple messages.  Now, I have to delete messages one at a time.  Is it possible to select multiple messages to delete?

    And that means in fact 'reconciliation' (guess I have three questions)?

    Thank you very much for your help!

    For the first question, this can do what you want (this will stop the notification for email and SMS, but your SMS icon will always have the "red sprocket wheel" when you receive a new SMS).

    First, separate you SMS and email inboxes:

    1. go to Messages (Inbox)

    2. press the Option key

    3. press on the 'o' key, then the trackball

    4. press on the trackball to go to the General Options

    5 scroll to the display new Message indicator, press the trackball, highlight No. and press the trackball

    6. turn highlighted SMS and email inboxes, press the trackball, separate highlight and press the trackball

    7. press the ESC key (right), scroll to save and press the trackball

    8. press ESC to return to the Office on

    This will display the Message icon and a new SMS and MMS Inbox.

    Now, move the Message icon, press the Option key and select hide and press the trackball.  Now the only icon that you have is the SMS and MMS Inbox and there a red gear wheel whenever you have a new SMS or MMS.  Not exactly what you want but a possible work around.  Unfortunately the new message indicator is for emails, SMS and MMS with no way to separate.

    I hope this helps.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones newby questions

    I just took a Curve 8330.  It's very different from what I'm used to, and so I have a few questions.

    1. I use Outlook Express to my main e-mail address.  It doesn't have a fixed schedule.  Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I should look for in a calendar that I can sync the BB to?  Is there a recommendation on a particular calendar?

    2. I probably exaggerated email accounts on my BB, but at this stage I am not prepared to cancel because of personal and professional e-mails on the BB.  Am I missing something?  Seems to me that I should be able, through BlackBerry Desktop Manager, go to my BB and delete e-mail messages using my PC.

    3. I can't use the Application Loader for the 8330.  The message is «BlackBerry Desktop Software has no peripheral BB software for the device you have connected to the computer...» "When I check updates is not one for the 8330.  I went to Verizon.  They say they get the BB site update.  Is there another way to get the update of the software?  Is there another way to download apps?

    4. I looked on the BB site for an email about these issues, but cannot find the link.  Where is - am I on it?

    Not a bad idea at all, the only stupid question is one that is not asked

  • BlackBerry smartphones another question concerning the size of microSD for bb8310 max

    Hi all...

    I'm such a wet behind the ears starting the bb8310, even very specific graphs given in a previous post raises questions for me.

    The table that was given:

    BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.0 - up to 2 GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.1 - Up to 4 GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.2.2 - Up to 4 GB
    BlackBerry Device Software 4.3.0 - up to 8 GB

    Under options > advanced options > applications, my bb8310 says:

    Basic BB 4.2 applications

    System BB 4.2 software

    then the rest of the list as an attachment service, Messenger, video, brickbreaker, browser, notebook, etc., etc., all say bb 4.2.2.

    Install the card 8 GB, the BB will recognize only 4 MB, due to your current operating system. When you upgrade,

    the full 8 GB will be recognized. It's that you have to buy a memory card.

    Please let me know if it helps!

    Thank you

  • BlackBerry Smartphones Newbie question Outlook synchronization...

    I know, I know you crackberry Masters must make fun of my basic question, but it drives me crazy.

    I want to curve. I'll use it for personal and business email accounts. Work email is through MS Exchange. I can access my email using Microsoft Outlook Web Access. Our server does not have this fancy/expensive Blackberry Enterprise Software Solution.

    Can I still sync my email to my Blackberry Wireless and untethered work? What are the downsides to not have the fancy software / expensive?

    You'll be always my friend, if you can answer this fundamental question in simple terms.

    Hi anrobb!

    You will be able to receive your email wireless without the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution (BES). You can use the BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) to deliver your email. There are two ways this can be accomplished:

    1-direct integration of your account Outlook Web Access (OWA). Here, you must create an BIS account and enter your information to OWA, such as the web address of the OWA server, your email address, mailbox name and password. BIS will use this information to analyze your mailbox for new messages at a time interval determined (basically every 15 minutes) and send it to all new mail he sees to your BlackBerry.

    2. create a hosted mailbox and set up a redirection rule. Most (if not all) carriers offer only a free hosted BlackBerry e-mail address when you have a BlackBerry plan. For example, a customer of Verizon could create an email [email protected] E-mail messages that are sent to these hosted email addresses are pushed to the device, so they come almost in real time. Once you have set up, hosted email address you (or your IT staff) define a redirection rule in your mail server to forward a copy of all new messages to the hosted e-mail address. The next step would be to connect to your BIS account and modify the reply-to field to be your professional email address. This it will bring up that the emails sent from your BlackBerry come from your work email.

    A difference in the use of the use of BIS on BES is that you cannot synchronize wireless your address book, calendar, notes and them tasks with BIS - you will need to connect to a computer. BES offers many other features as well, but I won't get it here.

    See you soon!

  • BlackBerry Smartphones Ringtone question

    OK, when someone calls me, my phone begins to vibrate 3 times before the start of the ring, where can I find the options to change the duration of the vibration? I know it's the same menu of options when you choose how hard your ringtone is. Thanks in advance for answers!

    Hi wrs0124:

    Locate the PROFILES icon on the Blackberry phone. Open and go to ADVANCED options and you can create or edit a new profile.

    The current profile will be considered as active. To change the current profile, use the menu button while you have the profile highlighted and the "Edit" menu

  • BlackBerry Smartphones Basic Question backup - how to respond to the choices on BlackBerry?

    When I plug the USB cable into my "BOLD" and it connects to my PC, I get a box of dialogue on the "BOLD" that says "Blackberry is plugged" and he gives me three choices: 1. USB Drive 2. The Media Sync or Charge only 3.  I have never known to choose because I want to do is to back up my BlackBerry with Desktop Manager, so I usually just ignore the dialog box.

    That is what I'm supposed to do?  Or choose one of the three choices each time?

    Sorry for the stupid question - but I never knew how to deal with this.  I have a Bold 9900 running 7.1.0.284 and Office Manager 6.1.0.36.

    In fact, it is not really important, but it works.
