T-Mobile Bold 9700 Wireless Update to 5.0.0.714?

T-Mobile Bold 9700 Wireless Update to 5.0.0.714?

We've had a few emails on this so far, so we figured it was time to post it up and see what its all about. It seems that some T-Mobile Bold 9700 users have been provided an OTA software update that ended with OS 5.0.0.714 installed on their devices. T-Mobile just issued an official OS update to 5.0.0.586 last week, so this newer version seems like a bit of odd timing. The users are mostly...

Rogers Launches BlackBerry Pearl 3G, Stores Still Awaiting Shipments

Rogers Launches BlackBerry Pearl 3G, Stores Still Awaiting Shipments

The BlackBerry Pearl 3G has finally been "officially" released by Rogers. Despite having been up on the Best Buy website for little over a week now, Rogers has sent off the information to employees and retailers letting them know they can start filling channels with the device. So basically, yes it's on the way but as of yet stores do not have the device to hand out to those waiting. Pricing...

Scan my barcode below or add me via pin: 32181312 * Be sure to read the updates below!! * It was back in October of 2009, upon the release of BlackBerry Messenger 5.0, that we had the whacky idea to put the new BBM 5.0 to a test to see just how many contacts and active conversations it could handle (see the original BBM Stress Test). For the...

Case-Mate Smart Skin Case for the BlackBerry Bold 9700

[ youtube video link for mobile viewing ]One of the most unique cases I've come across is the Case-Mate Smart Skin. I really dig this case as it offers great protection in a compact design. It has a very cool feel to it, and the keyboard cover is a great addition. The only hard part I found was getting used to typing on the "softer" keys, but after a while I barely noticed a difference. It works...

Gmail Two-Way Sync Up and Running ... But Is This It?

We've been over the issue of BIS two-way sync for Gmail more than a few times now, each time closer than the last. Well yesterday I noticed that my messages appeared to finally be syncing up between Gmail on the web and my Bold 9700. The only catch? It took over two hours! Yes you read that correctly ... two hours and two-way sync. I did a few tests to verify (I'm using a Bold 9700 on T-Mobile...

*UPDATE* - it's back, live again must have just been a glitch. Link updated. Gotta post this one a little different from the other official OS posts pattern.

Thanks to @mattyg, I was able to...

Quick Review: Fieldrunners for BlackBerry

Fieldrunners is one of my favorite tower defense games - it is super easy to pick up and play, and highly addictive. That being said - the BlackBerry version doesn't really hold its own against other platform versions. I was excited to try it out when I heard it was available, but after a few hours of play, I found some drawbacks that just make it a no-go in my book. A few gameplay "quirks"...

BlackBerry Takes on Lawnmower But Doesn't Live to Tell The Gruesome Tale

BlackBerry Takes on Lawnmower But Doesn't Live to Tell The Gruesome Tale

It fell from his belt and landed in the path of a moving lawnmower ... and that was that. I cringe just thinking about the crrrruuunnnccch sound it made as this poor BlackBerry was chopped to bits. Some of these stories end well with the...
