Verizon Wireless OS 4.7.1.40 For BlackBerry Tour 9630

Verizon Wireless OS 4.7.1.40 For BlackBerry Tour 9630

Verizon probably could have timed this better and released the OS on Sunday with the Tour, but better late then never right? OS 4.7.1.40 is now available on Verizon's download site. Nothing special here as this is the OS the Tour ships with, but if you are looking to play around and remove some unwanted sample videos or apps from your device, now you can.

BlackBerry Tour - The First 48 Hours

BlackBerry Tour - The First 48 Hours

So you camped out in front of your Sprint or Verizon store Sunday morning to ensure you'd have a shiny new BlackBerry Tour. I made it to my local store an hour or so before they opened and was surprised I was 1 of only 3 "in line." We got to chat with a rep who was shocked there wasn't a gathering of "Storm proportions." We were also told they had 120 units in stock, so you can imagine I was...

BlackBerry Storm 9550 (Dummy Mock Up Unit) SKU Shows Up in Verizon Inventory System

The photo above further adds to the validity of this notion as it seems the dummy unit for the Blackberry Storm "2" (you know, the fake display model units they keep in store for show and tell) has shown up in Verizon's...

TPXpert Professional Theme From Hedone Design

TPXpert Professional Theme From Hedone Design

I don't know about you all but one thing that I like to see in my themes is the ability to get at my important info when I need it in the fastest way possible. Some themes just simply do not offer that with how they are set up. Gladly, I can say TPXpert from Hedone Design is not one of those themes. TPXpert allows fast and easy access to everything you need right then and there, especially...

BlackBerry Desktop Manager 5.0 Included with Tour 9630

I'm all about surprises - especially when it comes to BlackBerry. Trying to backup my Tour for the first time this morning, I came across a few errors and started to get frustrated. I couldn't figure out the exact issue, so I decided to remove my current Desktop Manager (4.7) and do a fresh install. Rather than download it again, I pulled out the BlackBerry User Tools CD that came in the box...
