You know, occasionally I like to play pranks and have a little bit of disruptive fun... Thankfully, the BlackBerry can be party to this… This one, is just a quick and easy prank that usually gets some very fun comments…. This will work for anyone on a blackberry model that allows you to use voice and BlackBerry Messenger at the same time, while you talking with someone else on a BlackBerry, who is on a model that will do the same. (Meaning mainly 3G/HSPA devices). Now, this does not work 100% of the time, but the 90% sure is fun, because most people never modify their profiles enough to nullify this one… 🙂
To Start, you will need to place a phone call to the person you intend to try this on, while you are using a headset, Hands-Free Bluetooth or the BlackBerry Speakerphone.
Now for the fun part. While you are on the call with them, you will need to ask if they are on their BlackBerry with it held up to their head and if not, convince them to use their BlackBerry that way. I’m sure you can come up with your own line for this, without causing much suspicion…
Next, while you are talking to them, open up your BlackBerry Messenger and PING them…. A Ping will cause their blackberry to vibrate against their head, usually leading to some very interesting return comments……… (I’ve noticed for a few, that it sometimes takes 2 or 3 PINGS before they react….)
That’s all there is to this one. Have fun and please leave a comment on the reactions during those calls….. LOL
