My Blackberry is Not Working

Updated on July 4, 2015

The BlackBerry which was introduced in 1999 has become the smartphone of choice for a lot of business people. It not only supports e-mail but also can be used as a cellphone, for text messaging, internet faxing, web browsing and other wireless information services.

The BlackBerry was originally marketed for e-mail with a quality keyboard for "thumbing" which optimizes using your thumbs only for typing. The first BlackBerry had a wheel mounted on the right side for scrolling through the menu. This was replaced by the "trackball"when the Pearl series were introduced which would allow for four way scrolling. When the Curve series came it out it was changed to the optical trackpad.

In August 2010, the BlackBerry Torch was introduced. It has become a favorite with many users.

The BlackBerry is a safe device due to its encryption features and therefore suitable for many government agencies.

The British police for example, now carry the BlackBerry in order to help reduce public spending as their people can perform desk work directly on their mobile devices.

President Obama made the BlackBerry popular when he used it extensively during his 2008 presidential campaign. He has also insisted that he continue to using it while in office which makes him the first sitting president to use mobile email.

Make Your Blackberry Unique

If you want to personalize your Blackberry there are all sorts of accessories available. You can get a wireless headset in place of the standard headset or even purchase a Bluetooth-powered one. If you are in to music you can connect your phone to the BlackBerry Music Gateway via Bluetooth.

There are many types of coverings available as well. You can choose from plastic, rubber or gel cases that will cover the sides and the back of your phone. There is even a protective screen available to save the screen from getting scratched or dented. Maybe you want to add some rhinestones and create our own design. The choice is yours!

The Blackberry Torch

The Blackberry Torch can be flexible when using WiFi and has high-speed upload and download capability. It has a fixed keyboard while other phones like the iPhone use a touchscreen based keypad. Some phones need styluses to use but with the Torch you will get to use a real keypad. This makes it faster when entering data than the phones that have an onscreen pad. It also has a 3.7 inch high contrast color liquid graphic touchscreen.

The Torch also has a camera that allows up to 5 MP images and all the settings are handled automatically.

The Blackberry Torch has a 4 GB of internal memory which is more than enough if you want to use several apps or even stream music. It also offers GPS and other location based capabilities.

The Blackberry Torch has led the way in many ways when it comes to smartphones. If you need one for business this is the phone to buy.
