Group contact

How do I create a group of contacts in the 'Contacts" function? Or is there a back door to it somewhere else?

Not doing it as much lately. Just downloaded the version of the OS the other day. Not really sure if that has any effect on it. Not really a big problem. Just a little annoying when it happens. I still like the phone very much.

Z10 turning itself off and then back on

It has turned itself off and then back on twice today. Been doing that lately, often when I am in a bad reception area. Anyone know what is going on?

Thanks. Will try that. Also found a way by going into "pictures" instead of going into "contacts" and doing it from there. Haven't found a way to delete an email without first opening it. Kind of annoying even though it may only be an extra touch from my storm one. And no way to highlight and delete multiple emails at a time.

Got one today. I'm finding my way around. But there are some things that have me stumped. I can't find a way to set auto on/off times. And I haven't been able to assign a picture to a contact. I found a place to do it, but it doesn't seem to be able to find my pictures even though I can see them through the pictures function. Also, I got the Otter Box case. ...

Looking forward to your review, Hawkeye. I probably won't be able to get to Verizon for a while to take a look. But I do plan to do so. Finally, I will be able to move on from my Storm 1.

"Keyboards? We don't need no stinkin' keyboards." Seriously though, my first BB was the Storm, which I am still using. I don't see the big deal about the physical keyboard. Would much rather have the bigger screen than give up all that space for those crude little buttons. BB10 looks sweet from what I've seen on the web. I'm ready to upgrade if they JUST GET IT TO MARKET!!!!!!

Thanks for your input. It's very helpful. Glad you like your new phone. Saw my niece's I-phone 4S last night. To be honest, it seemed kind of big and clunky compared to my outdated Blackberry Storm. Haven't seen an I-phone 5 in person yet. Will probably wait to see if RIM can actuall get thereBlackberry 10 phones to market early next year. Won't jump to an I-phone unless there is another delay, ...

Thanks. I don't do a lot of pics, and hardly any video (taken or purchased). I could see moving my Itunes library onto a phone (about 500 songs). Of course, if I switch to an Iphone, and like the way it works, that could encourage me to do more video and pics. Will have to wait a while and what people say about Iphone 5 once they use it for a while. Also, may ...

16GB, 32 or 64

Just wondering if anyone could advise as to what limitations one would have with 16gb. What will the extra memory allow me to do? Why would I need 64? Thanks.

Re: Calendar question

in the Apple iPhone 4S forum

Thanks. Yes, I have considered that as a possibility, if I decide to go to an Iphone. So far though, I am still leaning toward staying with the Blackberry, as it does allow a week-in-advance reminder within the standard calendar app. Also, IMO Blackberry still wins the email battle, screen customization battle, and you can replace the battery. I know they seem to be circling the drain at BB, but they're still big circles. Maybe ...

Hawkeye, Will be waiting to hear your thoughts on the 9850 after you've had some time with it. I did look at one at a Verizon store. The guy behind the counter discouraged me from looking at it, saying that "it had some issues." He pointed me to a Bold. I told him the small screen and crude little keyboard buttons didn't do anything for me, and left with my old Storm 1.

Haweye, I noticed that the Iphone calendar only allows a reminder up to 2 days in advance. I usually give myself a 1-week reminder on distant calendar appointments on my BB. Do you know if there is a way to alter that limitation on the Iphone?

in the BlackBerry Torch 9850 forum

Hawkeye, Thanks. Excellent, practical thoughts. I was thinking about jumping ship to become an Idweeb, but will wait for a while. Still running my Storm 1 and have yet to see how an Iphone, or even a Torch 9850, would be enough of an improvement to justify the uprgrade cost.

Calendar question
Oct 17, 2011, 12:10 PM

Currently using a blackberry. Most important function for me is the calendar. I like the fact that I can set an event reminder a week in advance on my BB. When I have looked at the Iphone calendar app, it only allows a reminder up to 2 days in advance. Does anyone know if this can be altered?

stormsurvivor, Thanks. I will probably keep my 9530 for a while. It does still do the basics that I need. The browser could be faster, but I have a computer for that. I was tempted to look at the rumored Iphone 5. But even Apple disappoints these days. Hopefully I will not become an Idweeb, but RIM may drive me to it eventually. It will be interesting t see if RIM will ...

stormsurvivor, thanks for the last two posts. I really do appreciate your technical competence, far greater than my own. I'm still running my Storm 1, and trying to decide whether or not the 9850 is worth upgrading to. So far I have not bothered to stop by Verizon for a hands-on look. I will probably wait for a while, but I often wonder if waiting is an endless loop, never being satisfied and always waiting ...

Is there a way to block incoming calls from a specific number? I've looked but haven't been able to find it.

Frustrating that Verizon is not mentioned. I'm still nursing my Storm 1 and wishing there was something I could feel good about upgrading to. Either Verizon or RIM is going to lose me sometime soon.

Not likely for a long, long time. Look at the Iphone. Besides, by the time it gets to Verizon (if ever), it will be old news and there will be a newer offering you will want even more.

No caps in my password. I eventually just deleted the aol email from my phone, and then set it up again. That worked. Not sure what the original problem was, but deleting and re-entering took care of it.

Anybody having a problem with aol email? I got a message from bb that I had to update my aol password. Tried to do it in setup but it kept telling me it was an invalid password, even though it works when I use it directly on aol.com.

For the first time since I got my Blackberry, I'm going to another time zone. What's the best way to schedule my west coast appointments? Should I enter them using my present East Coast time and expect the phone to adjust everything to the network time zone when I get there?

Took the phone to Verizon this afternoon. They tried to load 5.0 but couldn't. So they gave me a new phone. They offered the new phone right away without my having to make any demand. They were very helpful. I have no complaint. The new phone with 5.0 seems to be very responsive. I do have to rebuild my calendar, but that's not a big problem. Didn't have much scheduled. Thanks for ...

Made some progress today. I used the DM to remove some apps, including Facebook. Now when I try to download 5.0, I get to 301 out of 346 modules, instead of the 258 of 353 modules I was getting before. Will try again tomorrow, but I'm running out of things to delete that might help.

Thanks. I tried the link and downloaded and installed the latest DM. It seemed to go fine. But when I tried to use it to download the device software, I got the same result. After downloading 258 of 353 modules, it freezes up and after sitting there for a half hour or so, it gives me a message that says there is something wrong with my internet connect, and forces me out.

Tried downloading 5.0 desktop again last night, but got the same result. Download died after 253 of 358 modules. I think I'll just live with o/s 4.7. Maybe I'll go the storm 2 in another year when I;m eligible for an upgrade. Thanks for your patience and suggestions. I appreciate your help.

I don't have those selections. When I go into options and select security options I get the following 10 selections: General Settings Application Permissions Certificate Servers Certificates Firewall Key Stores Memory Cleaning Software Tokens TLS WTLS I've gone into each, but there is nothing that says Security Wipes.

in the BlackBerry Storm 9530 forum

Believe me, I would like to get to 5.0 and have been trying. But it always gets stuck after downloading 238 of 353 modules and won't go any further. I'm guessing that some third party app is causing the problem. I don't have many. I do use Facebook 1.7.0.18 and wouldn't want to give that up to get 5.0. Do you know what apps are likely to cause a problem for 5.0? I ...

Got them back. I'm sure I lost them in my failed attempt to get to o/s 5.0. So I reloaded o/s 4.7 and they all came back. Still can't get o/s 5.0 to load, but I think I will forget about it for a while and live with 4.7.

Have tried it several times. Always seems to get stuck 2/3 of the way through. After about ten minutes of being stuck, I get a message that something is wrong with my internet connection. Now I seem to have lost my defined sound alerts, and there is no way to change them. Crazy. Will keep trying.
