One of my friends gave me his blackberry curve 8520 to update the software. He went to the repair centre becuase his screen went white and it doesn't want to reboot or anything, and they said it will cost him R350. I already checked the battery and it's not the battery. At first I tried the online update but the device wasn't even reconised. So I download the blackberry desktop software. The update works well until it comes to a part where it says reconnecting to JVM, then it suddenly says it failed to connect to the device. I've tried …

I am planning a service that I would like to eventually grow into a multi-platform service, however, my original plan of creating a hybrid app may not be the best decision. Is it better to come up with one app design and recreate it on each platform, or design a unique user experience for each platform, making use of the platforms features and design standards? In particular I can see my hybrid app design failing miserably on windows 8 phones. What would result in the best user experience? Answers appreicated!

[ATTACH=RIGHT]22083[/ATTACH]In an unusual take on the usual 'my smartphone is better than your smartphone' debate, a new survey has revealed that when it comes to the amount of time we spend using our handset of choice, iPhone users are the biggest addicts. So addicted, in fact, that many iPhone users cannot bear to be parted from their smartphone no matter where they are: and that includes the loo. According to digital banking provider Intelligent Environments which commissioned YouGov to undertake the research of British smartphone users last month, some 43 percent of iPhone users spend more than two hours a …

BlackBerry Vs iPhone? I know it’s a question that is not only as old as time itself, but has been answered many times. But as a BlackBerry user migrating to iPhone I thought I’d have a go myself. You don’t have to look too far to stumble across numerous reviews, opinions and comparisons between the two, and mostly biased towards one or the other. So I’ve tried to keep to my personal experiences of the two. I’ve been using the BlackBerry Torch 9800 with OS6 (V6.0.0.668) and the iPhone 4S with iOS 5.1 – both with the latest updates. I …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]21935[/ATTACH]While it is always easy for 'the media' to blame technology for whatever bad stuff is currently filling the front pages of the newspapers, could it actually have a point as rioting and looting rip apart the streets of London? The answer might appear to be a tentative yes as Blackberry manufacturers Research-in-Motion (RIM) take to Twitter to confirm it will help the police in any way it can. But appearances can be deceptive. Why a smartphone maker should choose to post such a statement right in the middle of an ongoing riot (as I write, my old stomping grounds …

What does your Android, BlackBerry or iPhone say about you? That's what newly published research by YouGov on behalf of Intelligent Environments aimed to find out, but the results were a little surprising to say the least. [attach]20446[/attach] The research analysed the financial profiles of each smartphone to paint a picture of the average user personality depending upon their choice of phone. Of course, it's all just a bit of fun really but interesting nonetheless. The sample size was 2001 British adults aged 18 plus, questioned between the 18th and 21st March 2011. Perhaps the most striking of the revelations …

Hi, I'm now starting out learning blackberry development, in hopes to eventually create an app using google maps so that mobile users can report different types issues and pinpoint their location (it is supposed to be an app that will hopefully be used by government). What i'm wondering though is if this should be a regular blackberry java developed app, or should I just do a web based application utilizing the google maps api, because i'm not seeing many resources for using google maps in blackberry apps. Any help, info, comments, etc would be really appreciated.

I was wondering if there was any way to make an ApplicationMenuItem inside the message edit screen that, when selected sends the message to the selected contacts itself, bypassing the default sending program. I am fine with the menu item and have seen how to do similar things by retrieving the 'context' argument but I'm not sure how I would get the message body and contacts that were selected.

On Blackberry, the bar at the bottom (MFF etc) doesn't show up. It's not available at a side nav either as far as I can see. Also the profile bit of each post appears below the post body as opposed to showing at the side. The last thing insn't a massive problem, but the menubar not showing is making nav awkward.
