NotNow for BlackBerryNotNow

Ever get a call at an inopportune time that you simply couldn't answer? Wish you could send a friendly message immediately let the person that was trying to call...instead of hitting 'ignore'? With NotNow, you can do just that. With it you can ignore the incoming call, and then select a friendly SMS message to send right back to the caller. I could see this one coming through big time for me. Perhaps it will for you too?

In this game from bplay, you get to try and make the dangerous escape from Fox River Prison. Based on the movie of the same name, you play Michael Scofield. Plan your brother's escape by influencing guards, gathering resources, objects and more. For the most part the game stays true to the original storyline, so if you liked the movie, you might love the game.

it wont let me download the free screensaver, telling me it's unavailable for download....

Air Force One

regarding the TellMe app...I love it!

However, it's been available for the Pearl for a long time. I've had it installed on my Pearl for a year and a half.

It still doesn't work right on the T-Mo 8800. Kinda frustrating. I installed it anyway, but it's got some bugs.

Omahahaha

Wouldn't let me download it either.

Tell Me is a great app, I just wish it would work with OS 4.5.

Every time it tries to access the GPS on my Curve, it reboots.
Other than that, it is a great product!

Wasn't there a free app VERY similar to QuickText called QSMS? That opened your contact list ready to send an SMS. Why pay the $7.50?

mesomobile

I've used both QSMS and QuickText and I definitely prefer QuickText. It has been well worth the $7.50 for me. I text a lot, and QuickText is... well... quicker. :-)
