I have gone for a long while. I have been working on my IT degree and getting life situated. I also have been through a bunch of a new phones, from the EVO, to the epic 4g, mytouch 4g, to now the inspire and my favorite blackberry torch from sprint. I will post on my thoughts about it shortly.
That’s the profile on ebay. I thought i’d add that and let my readers just wonder what kind of substance this person was on lmao.
Hey guys sorry i have been slacking off on providing you guys with useful things or tips to read. Below i come back with some pictures from over at crackberry where they compare the phones below is the Blackberry Javelin vs the curve.
As you can see the javelin looks great. It’s basically the Curve meets the Bold. The Cold or the Burve. OK that was my attempt at a funny. They seem about the same in width in height but the Javelin comes pack with more fire power. More build in internal memory i believe its 1gig plus an expansion slot. Below is another picture comparing the 3 new phones coming to us.
Thats the Bold, the Javelin and the KickStart. Right now for Rodgers customers its gonna be a pretty penny to get these. For example below is a pic of the Kickstart promo for Rodgers.
That’s 149.99 with a 3 year contract. A bit pricey for my pockets. Not to sure how much the Bold will be but I’m expecting $$ even with a long term contract. For those wanting a Blackberry phone. A heads up is Blackberry aren’t cheap but you get what you pay for a great phone.
Now I love Blackberry. Just not the prices. My T-mobile plan is the cheapest 29.99, unlimited texting, unlimited email and Internet and I’m etc. At the end of the day I’m still paying $82 and that’s without unlimited nights(i only got unlimited weekends trying to save a buck). So for 20 bucks more i can just pay $99.99 and get unlimited everything. Thank god tho its only Flex Pay with T-mobile so when i cant keep up with the bill its not on contract. Then again with a Sidekick i would be paying $49.99 for everything with my current setup. Both are awesome phones. T-mobile plz make unlimited nights standard with your plans. At 29.99 you would kick ass. In my area allot of people are opting for Metro PCS because its unlimited everything day and night for one base price or least make your Blackberry options one package like your Sidekicks.
Here’s a tip for you guys who wanna be on the phone all day from your house or near wi fi areas. Just pay the cheapest contract and 10 bux more for wi fi or get 2 phones on a family plan for $60 which automatically comes with unlimited nights and weekends and fav 5. Now im about to pay my $82 bucks and drop my Internet service to just have the phone and texting and wi fi. Wi fi just so i can call and receive all day. If i make a call from my wi fi router and walk to alaska its still a free call cause i made it from a hot spot or wi fi connection. wooot. =) You can do these things i think are better to save a buck or just go Sidekick or just pay the $99 bucks a month for unlimited everything on 1 phone or again just get 2 phones on the family plan or 3 or 4 with some buddies add in your options and probably still be cheaper individually then 1 Blackberry with everything. Btw new OS 4.6 is out. Ill post on that later. Hope you enjoyed your ribs and chicken on labor day.
Thanks to http://www.crackberry.com for the pics and news.
Before i begin let me start off by saying new Desktop Manager 4.6 is out over at the blackberry.com site.
On the note of Blackberry. The Bold will be selling for $399.99 to those who use the Rogers carrier with a 2 year contract. Thats kinda steap, maybe the iPhone 3g wins this round so far but we will have to see what our North america carriers do with price. Now unto the programs.
Vigo – Is a little program that gives you updates on numerous things. News, sports, etc. Best thing about it is that its free.
http://viigo.com/partners/crackberry.html the link if you want to download it to your pc. They should have a direct link to download to your phone aswell somewhere on the site.
The next goodie i messed with is NOT new. New to me. The google maps feature. Is insane. I found every local place i go to with just adding the name to the search feature. For example: Pizza or Win dixie. The program finds your current location and pin points where you are or real close to it. Then can search to whatever you want. Give you all the info to the place. Number, address, directions to get there. Even a guide on the map you can just follow. Kinda scary to reminds me of the 80s song “Feels like somebodys watching meee”.
The link i believe is m.google.com/maps on your phone or just google “mobile google maps”. Either one should lead you to the program.
These links below are so you can get some themes on your phone. These themes are ones i use. I have 4.5 os update on phone tho and get the latest desktop manager. These themes are for 83xx model blackberry.
Email these links to yourself on the phone and click on link or just type out the link on your phone browser. Sorry i forgot to mention it first time.
http://blueroomsolution.com/Themes/timothy/BBZ4.5/com_plazmic_theme_BeBold.jad – new bold design on your curve, pretty cool.
2 more cool themes, I didnt upload picks to them will tonight. Hope you enjoy them.
First thing you will need is your Desktop manager. Make sure you get the latest one from http://www.blackberry.com.
Next a site to download themes from. Now themes will depend on the version of the operating system you have on the phone.
ALot of people are still probably running 4.2 for the curve maybe older on other phones. I’ve got 4.5 which gave me a few extra things.
Like video recording and voice notes. Another thing that came with the 4.5 update is the new menu setup. Other Blackberry update as well but the options that where included vary.
FOr example the Pearl got the update but still cant record videos.
She makes excellent themes. Can get them OTA(on the air). TO get the Desktop Manager files you will have to pay $3 bucks. Well Worth it though.
I’m gonna go ahead and presume you guys have the latest Os installed.
Themes when downloaded consist of 2 files alx and cod files. Those are extensions.
In simple terms its like when you download music you might see, the name of a file followed by .mp3.
Same thing here. Make sure your phone is plugged into the PC and run Desktop Manager. Once it detects your phone we can go ahead.
On the lower left part of desktop manager you should see Device connected (pin) then some numbers, that’s your phone.
In the main part of the window you should see some icons. The one you are going to need for this article is Application Loader.
You should see 2 new screens. An Add/Remove applications and a Update Applications. Select the Add Applications by clicking on the start.
Once in there you should see some applications you have on your phone or you might not. I see a few themes i have installed. Don’t worry about it.
If you are using the old Desktop Manager you will probably see alot of programs pop up. Don’t worry about that either. Select the add or browse option and this is where you select the new theme to be added.
Find the alx file for the theme you have downloaded and click open or add it. You will notice the loading bar come up on Desktop Manager and it is installing. Once its done you might notice a couple of things.
Might notice your phone reset or load for a second or it might not do anything. OK now to get the theme working. On your phone open up the main menu icons and look for options. Once in options scroll down to themes.
The name of the Theme you just installed should show up. Hit the select button or for curve or pearl users click the mouse ball. It’ll take it a few seconds to organize everything like changing icons, fonts etc.
You should be up and running.
Part 2 of this article is how to install on the air themes. OTA. This means you find a theme you want and have the link to download it sent to your phone.
This usually requires you to register to a site with themes for your phone and having them email it to you. Once you get the email it should provide you a link to download it directly.
Just scroll down to the link and click it. There should be a “do you want to download it now” option. You select Yes and the theme will be downloaded and installed automatically. You then do like the above paragraph.
Go to options. You select themes. Pick the one you just downloaded and installed and click on it or select it. The rest is wait a few seconds for phone to set it up. Some phones might take longer then others.
ANother thing to remember depending on your phones versions of OS(operating system) those are the theme versions you can use. SO if your phone is still 4.2 you cant use 4.5. Although some people make the same themes for different version of phones.
Remember what you need to do this stuff all vary on phones.
1. Desktop Manager( i use 4.5 with media manager)
2. Usb cable to PC for phone.
3. A place or site to get Themes. I use Themes4BB.com and Crackberry.com. In the forums sections you’ll find all the info you need on phones, themes and software for your phones.
4. Just follow instructions.
Enjoy your pimped out blackberry =)
picture quality sucks sorry about that.
Ever have so much family that you seem to meet a new cousin at the family party? This is that party. The blackberry curve t1000 is more like the blackberry t2000.
Items of note:
- 512 MHz Processor
- 256 MB onboard flash memory (more room for apps)
- Hot-swappable microSD slot – located under the battery door
- 480 by 360 high-res HVGA+ display
- 3.2MP camera
- Micro USB charging/syncing port, w/ high speed data
If those specs are correct then that’s a beefy little piece of machinery. 256 megs of built in memory + a microSD slot(Lets say 8 gigs). That’s alot of programs, allot of music, videos and ringtones and whatever else your willing to have on it. External baby HD? Only downside is it wont support 3g. Does have built in wi-fi and a gps.
I personally like the look to it. Doesn’t have that mini pancake look to it or feel. The Bold is a nice phone as well. I’m just not a fan of the shape and design. On the other hand I love the curve feel and size. If the Javelin is about the same size of the curve with all those new specs its a wow. I want it now. Do you? If your wondering what carriers will carry the Javelin. Being that its still gsm I would bet on all the carriers that carry the curve now.
On another note I put up a forums board. SO you guys can come and give me feedback, suggestions, questions or want to know about something in particular. Ill try my best to answer all the questions and suggestions. I’m also working on fixing up the page so i can put all the guides together. I’m also working on getting you guides to modding your psp and your iPod.
