That's it. I'm done with BlackBerry Messenger stress tests. Well, at least I'm done with them for a little while. Maybe I'll give it another go once we have a new device rocking BlackBerry 6 and a 1GB of memory (Storm3 perhaps?!). While the Sprint BlackBerry Bold 9650 we conducted this BBM stress test on did run a LOT smoother throughout the process than the Bold 9000 we did our original...

T-Mobile killing service to unlocked Storm devices?

Tips have been flying in one, and it looks like a good number of you are having all kinds of issues. It appears as if T-Mobile may be denying service to many Storm users, resulting in mass chaos. While the Storm isn't a T-Mobile device, an unlocked Storm has no problems working on T-Mobile service (with a few tweaks), but now it appears that the devices aren't functioning properly on the...

Biston - Premium theme from Hedone Design

Having been using the BlackBerry Pearl 3G for the past little while, I was starting to miss the big screen my BlackBerry Bold 9700 offered so I switched back for a little while yesterday. One email I got while using my Pearl 3G was from Hedone Design letting me know of his latest theme Biston. Given that I couldn't use it on the Pearl 3G I decided upon switching back to check it out and was...

Verizon BlackBerry Bold 9650 unboxing [video]

I finally got my hands on a shiny new Bold 9650 from Verizon. I'm very excited to check it out and be back on CDMA (for a while at least) since I've been rocking the Bold 9700 on T-Mobile for months. I was a big Tour fan when it came out, but now having the optical trackpad as well as Wifi (among other things) on the Bold 9650 is definitely a bonus. Nothing too exciting in the box that we haven't...

CogniCard scans and emails business cards to your BlackBerry

CogniCard understands that business cards are great to have, but entering the information into your BlackBerrys address book can be time consuming. Some BlackBerry users have a block of time set aside to sit down and enter cards in one at a time. Sounds like a fun filled afternoon, right? I didn’t think so either. CogniCard is a business card scanner, with a bit of a twist. Some scanners...

The Dragon for email application is simply put, awesome! I have it on numerous devices (BlackBerry and iPad) and it has never failed with dictating my emails so far. Sure, at first it had some issues with my "aboots" and "eh's" but once you learn to get past that it's pretty sweet. The intial realese of Dragon was not that great for some BlackBerry Tour owners though. Many experienced...

Review: iLock for BlackBerry

iLock keeps prying eyes, and quick thumbs, from accessing private information on your BlackBerry. It’s a quirky relationship between you, the world and your BlackBerry. You want to use your BlackBerry to gain access and learn about everything in the world. You also don’t want the world to gain access and learn about everything on your BlackBerry. Is it selfish? No, you just want to make sure...

Push2Talk app brings push to talk to all BlackBerry devices

New to the CrackBerry app store is a cool app called Push2Talk. It does just what it says, providing two-way push to talk communication over BlackBerry devices. There have been a few attempts at this in the past (remember HipVoice?) and Verizon has even added the feature to the Tour 9630 and Bold 9650. The feature can be useful for a number of reasons, and $4.99, it's not going to break the...
