I have been looking for a solution for being able to easily change the snooze time for a reminder or alarm on my BlackBerry for years. Somehow Kevin @CrackBerry found about this easter egg hidden in the BlackBerry calendar that allows you to do just this. By entering in a certain code in the calendar options screen you will not have the ability to change the snooze time in 5 minute increments from 1 minute to 60 minutes by scrolling left or right. The best part is that it works in both the Alarm Clock and Calendar reminders.
To enable this awesome feature that should be enabled by default simply:
- Open the Calendar application
- Press the menu button and select options
- In the options type the letters acsz
NOTE: if “acsz” does not work then try “ALT+acsz”
- As confirmation of it being enabled you should immediately see a popup stating “Now allowing user to change snooze from dialog”
If you ever want to disable this feature just perform the same process again. I am just shocked that RIM does not have this as a menu option even though it seems like it has been there since OS 5.0. I really hope RIM publicizes it more and enables it by default. This is one of those features that I cannot imagine anyone turning off… Kudos to Kevin for figuring it out.
PS: Anyone figure out what ACSZ stands for? I feel like we need to start typing in Konami style codes into all the native apps until we find more easter eggs…
