Browser Productivity Enhanced

Google released a Mobile App for the Storm, today, enabling searches by voice without the need for typing it in. It works by holding down the green send key and speaking the command.

The Google search is more convenient than using Bing or trying to type your command on the keyboard.

To download....... »

Sorry if this is an old thread, but I couldn't seem to find any info. I am trying to transfer music that I copied from Pandora by way of Applian, when it synced with iTunes, it would not transfer any of those songs. Is there a way to get those songs on my phone? When they were copied the were put on the computer in Media Player, as well as my iTunes library, any held would be appreciated.

Calendar question

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?

Upgrade to Storm 2 or Droid?

I have a Storm 1 and it's a good phone except for 1 thing... the internet. Accessing the internet is painful on this phone even with other browsers. I played with a Droid, internet is amazing by comparison.

Blackberry is terrific in so many ways and internet is not the most important function on my phone but it shouldn't be frustrating.

Should I upgrade to a Storm 2 or look for something else?

Clean Theme at the Right Price

For those using the boring stock Zen theme, there is a plan B if you like. I found a very clean one, which works in landscape mode without the white bands problematic to so many versions running on 5.0. Its fast, has no memory leak and features sharp icons and a well designed home screen, as well as a small app memory bite (733kb).

Its FREE and brings a change of pace to the same ole, same ole look of our Storm2. Its a good thing to pick up a new phone once in a while (cosmetically of course) Wink

Storm 2 or....

So thanks to my addiction to Blackberry, I stuck with the Storm this past year...though at times it was frustrating! Now there's a nice new OS for the Storm along with the release of the Storm 2. However, Verizon will also soon release Android, and now I'm torn! Do I stick with Blackberry and go with the Storm 2 or venture out into new territory with Android? What to do, what to do? I know Blackberry, but this new Android is looking pretty amazing! Is Blackberry in for some trouble?

# 3 key sticking - on a touchscreen dialpad ?!

sorta funny but annoying -

The # 3 key on the dialpad "sticks" - it squeals a few seconds and then releases...does this both in speaker and non-speaker mode. No other key does this. I do use "3" alot (but same for 2 and 1). Just started this.

Q) Software of hardware issue?

Q) Only solution is to get another device (again)? I was hoping BB could just fix it somehow.

Thanks again to the room for the help.

9550 OS leaked!

For those of you who have never seen these before, I am posting the disclaimer from crackberry below the link: ... »

"Word is it's a fairly decent OS that brings a lot of bug fixes to it and users should be quite happy overall"

*OS Disclaimer - Please Read:
Keep in mind this is NOT an official release and as such is not supported by RIM or your Carrier. If you choose to install, do so at your own risk and only if you're comfortable in the process of upgrading and downgrading your device software. It is quite normal during operating system development for certain features to be crippled or disabled while others are tested, and these beta builds often reflect that. They...
