Dear Berry: How do I save emailed photos on my BlackBerry PlayBook?


Dear Berry

Hello again dear readers. It's time once again to open up the mailbag and clear up any BlackBerry woes you may have. This week's question comes from one of our Twitter followers, Scott, who asked:

How do I save an attached photo (not bridged, but native Gmail) on PlayBook? Doesn't offer save/cut/copy…Holding a finger is NOT coming up with choices when it's attached. I can open but not save.


Dear Scott,

When I first downloaded the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 and started using the native messaging application I noticed the same thing as you. To answer your question, there is a way to save images that are attached and it's a simple solution that will have you downloading them in no time. Now I'm going to show you how to save images that are displayed in emails and those that are attached to make sure all your bases are covered for supported file types (BMP, JPG, GIF, and PNG).

Dear Berry: Where is the 'Mark All As Read' option on my PlayBook?


Dear Berry

Here we are again CrackBerry Nation, it's another issue of Dear Berry. So, let's crack open the mailbag and see what BlackBerry woes you have been having this week. The question this week goes like this:

Dear Berry,

Is there any way to "mark all as read" on the PlayBook messages? I have 300+ messages to open.

- Tim and Kim

Dear Tim and Kim,

I see you took advantage of the Native Email feature of BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0. The unfortunate, simple, answer to your question is no, there is no way to Mark All As Read on the PlayBook. I too added an email account that had hundreds of unread emails and really wanted this option to be available. However, instead of leaving you out to dry, there is a long-winded way to mark emails unread and requires you to select the emails a bulk at a time. Continue throught the break to find out how.

Dear Berry: How do I save attached email images while bridged on the BlackBerry PlayBook?


Dear Berry

Hello again readers! Dear Berry here to once again to open up the mailbag and clear up any BlackBerry woes you may have. This week's question comes from Patrick who asks:

I have the playbook and noticed that there is no option to save the images that you open in an email. There are no screen options or drop down menu options at all. Am I missing something because I am pretty sure you can save an image that you get in an email on your phone?


In subsequent emails he goes on to say that he is attempting to save attached images while his device is bridged. Keep reading for my response!
