BlackBerry Bold 9650 Basics
By Adam Zeis on 11 Jun 2010 12:51 pm EDT

So you just got a new BlackBerry Bold 9650 ... now what? If you're new to BlackBerry things may be a little overwhelming. While the included manual can get you started, its not always the easiest to understand. Here is a quick video that will explain the basics of the Bold 9650 and a few of the applications. Seasoned BlackBerry users will probably want to pass over this one, but if you've just picked up a BlackBerry for the first time this should help you understand the basic applications a bit better. Nothing complex in this one, just an explanation of the basic native apps, shortcut icons, moving/hiding items and a bit more. Check out the full video after the jump and when you're done read my full review.

Getting Started on the BlackBerry Bold 9650; Learn the Basics of BlackBerry [video]


Great video for first timers! Nice easy walk thru, better then reading a paper manual. Who reads those these days lol:)

I can't stand that the space bar doesn't work well. I have to push it hard and then often times it will act like I've pushed it twice. Same with some of the keys. I'm coming from a Curve 8330, and although I don't mind the switch from the trackball to optical trackpad, this keyboard is driving me nuts. I feel like sending it back and switching.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
