BlackBerry Sees 20 Million New Active BBM Users

BlackBerry reports that at the end of its first week since launching BBM on Android and iPhone devices, the BBM community has grown to 80 million users across BlackBerry, including more than 20 million new users on Android and iPhone devices. In the first 24 hours after the launch, there were more than 10 million downloads of the application. The release also said that during the first week “BBM was the top free overall app in 35 countries in Google Play™ and in 107 countries in the Apple App Store…” The BBM experience will continue to evolve, the release said. In the coming months, BlackBerry will deliver BBM Video calling, BBM Voice calling and BBM Channels – a new community building service to connect BBM users even more broadly – to Android and iPhone users. —

When you have a good product- push it regardless of what folks tell you.
Everyone I know tells me to get an iphone,
That blackberry is dead, that I’m a fool.

Well they read the local news, and listen to the talking heads.
Me I use this phone to further my dreams.
It makes me cash, builds my connections, and let’s me make simple tasks of my social media campaigns.

Lesson learned:
If it aint broke don’t fix it.
Move beyond the naysayers and crush the market!

Build your team!

Aim for excellence!

And above all else remember failure is only a stepping stone.

MAXIMIZE YOUR SMARTPHONES POTENTIAL aka SECRET APPS AND TRICKS YOU NEED

8 Jan

In this day and age we count on our mobile phones to stay connected with friends and family. But their cost in both time and money can be high.

I’ve got a secret stash of info and shortcuts to optimize your usage and save you time and money.

Send texts via e-mail

Does your phone not support multimedia messaging? Maybe you nearing your monthly text-messaging limit? Simply send your photo or text message via e-mail.

Just open a new e-mail message. In the To: field, enter the 10-digit telephone number (without dashes). Then enter the appropriate domain name for the recipient’s carrier.

AT&T: @txt.att.net

Sprint: @messaging.sprintpcs.com

T-Mobile: @tmomail.net

Verizon: @vtext.com

Standard charges apply for the recipient. If you’re e-mailing from a cellphone, you’ll pay for data usage.

Block messages

Perhaps you don’t like text messaging. So why pay to receive unwanted texts? You can either block texts or set up filters.

AT&T users must register for Message Preferences at mymessages.wireless.att.com. Sign in and you’re given options to block specific types of messages. You can also allow and block messages from specific numbers.

Sprint lets you block messages from specific numbers. Log in to your account online. Click My Sprint, then My Online Tools. Under Communication Tools, select Block Text Messages.

Some plans may not provide this option. Or, you may want to block all billable messages. In that case, call *2 for customer service.

T-Mobile lets you block messages based on type. Log in to your account online and click My Account, then Change services. Select the blocking features you would like. Click Change Services.

For Verizon, log in to your online account. Select Preferences and choose Text Blocking. Block specific addresses or types of messages.

Skip the formalities

Hate listening to your friend’s obnoxious voice mail greeting? Then skip it. When the greeting starts, enter the appropriate code for the recipient’s carrier.

AT&T: #

Sprint: 1

T-Mobile: #

Verizon: *

Check your account

Don’t know if you used your monthly minutes? Unsure how many text messages you have left? A quick call will tell you. Just use these shortcuts.

AT&T

*MIN# (*646#) for minutes used

*DATA# (*3282#) for text usage

*BAL# (*225#) for account balance

*PAY (*729) to make a payment

Sprint

*4 for billing information

*3 to make a payment

T-Mobile

#MIN# (#646#) for minutes used

#MSG# (#674#) for text usage

#BAL# (#225#) for account balance

Verizon

#MIN (#646) for minutes used

#DATA (#3282) for text usage

#BAL (#225) for account balance

#PMT (#768) to make a payment

Navigate your voice mail

Checking your voice mail can be a chore. My shortcuts will help you out when you’re listening to a message. Speed it up, slow it down, save it and more.

Text a landline

Both Sprint and Verizon provide text-to-landline services. Your text message is converted to a voice message and delivered. Simply enter the landline number as you would a mobile number.

Sprint provides this service at no charge; the message counts the same as any other. Verizon however charges 25 cents per message. There is no charge to message recipients.

11 Really Cool iPhone Keypad Codes

11 Really Cool iPhone Keypad Codes

Your iPhone can browse the net, play myriad games, play YouTube videos and more but there are also some nifty tricks you can use to find out some great information about your phone and run it more smoothly.

In essence, there are a bunch of iPhone keypad codes that you can type in and get back specific information about/from your mobile carrier, phone and billing details.

When you want to use any one of these codes, open your iPhone’s “phone app” and make sure that the keypad button is selected in the bottom menu. Next, type in any code from the list below and press call.

iPhone Codes: Network & Phone Information

*3001#12345#*– Opens up the “Field Test” settings on your iPhone, which allows you to see many, many advanced network settings on your phone including cell site information and more.

*#06# – Displays your iPhone’s International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number (this code also works on many other phones).

*#21# – Displays any call forwarding settings enabled on your iPhone.

*#43# – Shows you if call waiting for various parts of your phone are either enabled or disabled.

*#30# – Shows you if you have the call presentation (to see who is calling you) setting enabled or disabled.

*#33# – Displays call barring settings for your iPhone, and weather they are enabled or disabled.

iPhone Codes: Carrier & Billing Information

*646# -View available minutes on your AT&T plan (*min#).

*777#- View available minutes on your AT&T pre-paid plan (if you get the “Account Not Found” error, you do not have a pre-paid account and you should try the code just above this one for postpaid accounts).

*3282# – View wireless data usage statistics (also *data#).

*225# – Check the bill balance on your AT&T account (also *bll#).

*729 – Makes a call to AT&T to pay your wireless bill.

Do you have any other iPhone keypad codes / shortcuts to share? Let me know in the comments section or feel free to email me or hit me up on twitter.

FEMA App

2 Nov

In light of all that’s happened I’d say download this app- the FEMA App.
It has advice, checklists and so forth.

I say hey, download it. Look at it. And if you delete it its in the back of your mind from now on. On blackberry it will be kept listed in an un-installed list in my appworld which will ease re-installment should I delete.

There is no loss to learning folks.
I learned the hard way though not as hard as others. Plan for the future.
Have a plan for you, and your pets too.

Take pictures of all valuable and pertinent documents and email them to at least two of your emails.
Put them on a flash drive too.

Water- have one gallon per day per person for drinking and sanitary use. Here again don’t forget the pets. For cats, get an aluminum tray from the dollar store- maybe 2 and a lot of newspaper you can shred. Its lightweight if you have to take it with you and easily packable. Its also dirt cheap.
Have at least 3 days of non perishable food on hand. Those cans you don’t want will save your life.

This may be a day late and a dollar short but this is just a sample of FEMA info and that gathered from http://www.changeinadvance.com.

Also you can call fema @ 18006213362.
Or go to Disasterassistance.gov and start
And I believe there may be funding for loss of food and to procure food as well. If I’m wrong, sorry folks. But it is feasible as FEMA is so far reaching in scope.

GAS
Hessexpress.com/fuel information will show you where their gas is. But remember some places have no electricity to pump gas.
The list is updated daily or better.
