The BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing app from RIM has seen a small update to version 3.0 today. It still has all of the standard stuff, like pulling bridge numbers and access codes from meeting requests so you can join in one click when the calendar reminder pops up. New in this version is the ability to share the app through a bunch of different channels, including BBM, e-mail, and various social networks. The app also comes with help videos, so users can figure out what they're doing wrong without being too late for their conference call. You can access both of those through the dedicated icon. As always, if you lose coverage mid-call, the app provides you with a pop-up to reconnect. The app also adds a ton of options in the native calendar app for setting up conference call meetings, including moderator passcodes. 

While BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing certainly isn't flashy, it's definitely useful for people who deal with conference calls regularly. Take a look at the demo video after the jump for a full tour, and be sure to check out our review for the deep dive. To get started with the update, hit up the App World link below; unfortunately, the latest version is currently only available in Canada, the U.S., and the U.K., but I'm sure other regions of the world will get access soon enough.

My Bold 9900 is 4G on T-mobile.

hmm then it's my fuckin australian carrier.
but even in Germany I was not able to see a 4G
it only shows H+/3G

The carrier labels it as 4G. It's really 3G/H+ (HSPA/HSDPA/HSUPA).

I'm not interested in flashy, just as long as it gets results. And Blackberry Mobile gets results. http://www.geekchoice.com

this app does not need to be flashy....esp when you click on the "join now" button and it gets you to the call.

I've been using this app for months now and it is absolutely flawless....and free!!

Not sure if my problem is related to this app or not... I've been using this for months (and love it) and installed the upgrade today. All of my emails have disappeared on my 9900. I've checked all my inbox settings and all is well there. Has anyone else noticed this?

It broke fancy widgets, the calender widget doesn't work. Bold 9900 OS 7.1.0.205

I'm running .205 as well and my calendar widget still works.
