How Much Are You Paying in Cellphone Taxes & Surcharges?

I had a little revelation last night when I was comparing my families cell phone bill on AT&T with my parents Verizon bill. I have become so desensitized to AT&T charging me almost $10 in taxes and surcharges PER LINE, and increasingly raising the “surcharges”, that I could not imagine anything else. It turns out…

Why Sent Messages "Quickly Disappear and Reappear" After Sending on BlackBerry 10

One of the many things that has bothered my visually in BlackBerry 10 is how sent messages are handled. When you send a message from an activesync or IMAP enabled account on BlackBerry 10 you will see the sent message appear then disappear then appear again.

Updated: Is Google Play Store Landing on BlackBerry 10.2.1?

Update: As far as I know this has been confirmed as a hoax. Sorry guys! Well to say there haven’t been some fueled discussions about this in some of my groups would be a lie.  From the optimist who wants to see this land on the BlackBerry 10 platform, to the other who don;t believe…

Long Running Headless Apps Now Require BlackBerry OS 10.2.1!?!

Sometimes It Feels Like BlackBerry’s Developers Never Used BlackBerry 7…

There has been something nagging me since I first started using BlackBerry 10. Sometimes when using BlackBerry 10 it feels like the developers at BlackBerry have never used a legacy BlackBerry 7 device. I just get so frustrated when my old BlackBerry 7 device is more efficient at certain communication tasks than my top of…

Dear BlackBerry… Can We PLEASE Copy Contact Fields in BlackBerry 10?

   Notice something missing in the action menu above? I love where BlackBerry is finally going with the newer BlackBerry 10.2 builds but there are still basic usability features missing that drive me nuts. One of these is the fact that if you want to copy a persons phone number or other details from the…

Dear BlackBerry, Please Let Us Resize Pictures Before Sending Them on BlackBerry 10

  One of the things that really jars me sometimes in BlackBerry 10 is how BlackBerry has done away with some of the nice efficiency improvements they have made over the years. On one hand we have features that have been improved like the File Manager and on the other hand we have the substandard…
