The previous version was 4.5.1 which we saw released back in October of last year. If you notice any significant changes drop a comment below, or discuss your findings in the forums! To download...

Weekly Accessory Roundup - Win a Ventev PowerCELL for your BlackBerry!

Contest: Win an Ventev PowerCELL for your device! Details Below. I picked up a Ventev PowerCELL a while back to use with my BlackBerry Torch, and I have to say I absolutely love it.

Honey, I shrunk the picture - AutoResize for BlackBerry

Honey, I shrunk the picture - AutoResize for BlackBerry

ToySoft Development recently released an application to aid the shutter bugs of the BlackBerry world. One of the biggest problems with taking pictures on the BlackBerry is the size of the image. As weird as it sounds, even as I type it, but size does matter. Snickering aside, the only power we have over the images on our BlackBerrys is setting their size before they are captured. On my Torch,...

It looks like Alltel may soon be offering the BlackBerry Style 9670 for its customers. While the device isn't yet showing in their BlackBerry listings, they do have the software for the device available for download. It's not the first time we've seen an "oops" on pushing software live too soon (and surely not to be the last) but it's a good sign that the device may pop up fairly soon. This is...

BlackBerry Swiss Army Knife - a program for advanced users

BlackBerry Swiss Army Knife - a program for advanced users

  BlackBerry Swiss Army Knife (BBSAK) is a tool; just as a hammer and a thermonuclear reactor are tools. Placed in the wrong hands, they can cause destruction. Similarly, using BBSAK can render your BlackBerry inoperable. That being said, BBSAK is also a tool for fixing that. If you carefully - and I cannot stress that enough - follow instructions, it should always work properly for you....

BlackBerry 101 - BlackBerry Messenger Groups

BlackBerry 101 - BlackBerry Messenger Groups

  Back in October, we ran a poll to see just how many BlackBerry Messenger groups you belonged to. Surprisingly, out of nearly 10,000 votes, the vast majority of our readers don't use BBM groups at all. And that really is a shame. You already know that BBM is a great communications tool, but did you know it could be more? BBM groups extends that simplicity of communication to an entire...
