Slacker Radio Updated To Version 2.0.49

Just a few days ago there was an update to Slacker Radio and apparently it's already that time again. Slacker Radio has been updated from version 2.0.45 to 2.0.49 this time around and while there is no mention of a change log on the Slacker forums as of yet, some users were indeed having issues with 2.0.45 on their 9630's so maybe this is the fix for those bugs.

T-Mobile BlackBerry Bold 9700 Marketing Image!

T-Mobile BlackBerry Bold 9700 Marketing Image!

Our pal Al Sacco scored a bank error in his favor this morning when T-Mobile sent him a marketing image of the upcoming BlackBerry Bold 9700 which was not accompanied by any embargo terms. I brought you live images of the T-Mobile branded Bold 9700 previously, but this marketing shot sure looks sweet. T-Mobile also sent along the following blurb, which still makes use of the "onyx" codename...

txtForward: SMS to Email Forwarding

This may not be the case for everybody but for me, I used to rarely use SMS to communicate. There has only been a slight increase of SMS activity on my BlackBerry smartphone. What’s the reason?
