Basic 950 CrackBerry
This is a site of information on the BlackBerry 950 - but not the type of information you can get on RIM's BlackBerry site. If you really want to know what a BlackBerry can do, go there and download the .pdf user manuals, white papers and brochures. I like the Exchange Edition brochure - although I have an Internet Edition. You can buy a BlackBerry there (or link to resellers) or check coverage, read specs, yada yada yada.
Stay here if you want:
- Basic Info:
Differences between BlackBerries, providers, and what is an "Edition" anyway? (11k).
Why I bought mine, why I didn't buy a Palm, and how well the BlackBerry works for me (8k).
- Tips and Tricks:
Nifty things I've found out so far (5k).
- Software Reviews:
If I think I can use it, I'll try it. (5k).
- Rogers mail:
I try to explain how "Internet Edition" Rogers mail works (7k).
Five quick answers:
up to menu
- A BlackBerry is a wireless e-mail device with minimalist PIM function. While it does e-mail very well, the PIM part isn't any great shakes. Works fine for me, though.
- Yes, it synchronizes with most corporate e-mail thingies like Outlook. It does contacts, calender, etc. using Intellisync. It doesn't synchronize contacts with Eudora.
- No, you can't view attachments, although there are third party solutions that work like Itrezzo, which I use. RIM has their own solution now that I know nothing about. Sorry.
- Yes, you can browse the WWW, but text-only, and
- Yes, it is a great device, and worth the cost - if e-mail rules your life. (I'm not saying you'd want text info to rule your life.)
