If the default font size is too small for you in the BlackBerry 10 browser, you can increase it in the settings panel. After using the BlackBerry Z10 for a few days I find myself getting a bit more acclimated to the user interface however not without a few tweaks including the browser font size and thankfully changing it is pretty simple.
Every modern day smartphone should have the ability to take screen shots and it is nice to see that the BlackBerry added this feature to the BlackBerry Z10.
To take screenshots, all you have to do is press and hold the Volume Up and Volume Down button at the same time. If done properly, you will hear the normal camera click sound, see the screen flash, and, a 1280×768 .png image will be created.
A question that we get regularly here on RIMarkable.com is “How do you listen to a podcast on your BlackBerry?”
If you have a relatively new BlackBerry, one capable of running BlackBerry 6 or higher, the easiest way, arguably, is with the native BlackBerry Podcasts app.
Chances are your device already has BlackBerry Podcasts installed, but, if you don’t, you can download it OTA, or, pick it up in BlackBerry App World.
To listen to a podcast, all you have to do is:
The latest episode of the podcast should download to your device.
As nice as of an operating system as BlackBerry 7 is it is still based on a BlackBerry OS that has been around for years, and, unfortunately, like its predecessors requires rebooting after the installation and updating of many popular applications. Having to reboot your BlackBerry just because you installed an app is annoying, but, having to pull the battery out of your device to do so, makes the process irritating.
With today’s Quick Tip we wanted to remind BlackBerry users that if you simply need to reboot your device pulling the battery is overkill. You can perform a “soft reset”, or, reboot your BlackBerry by pressing the Alt, right Shift, and Delete buttons simultaneously. So long as your device isn’t locked up this keyboard shortcut for rebooting your BlackBerry is lot less hassle than physically pulling the battery…
I received the following question in our contact form:
My boyfriend bought a used BlackBerry and does not have a manual for it. He
does not know the series number. Is there something to push on the phone that
tells him the exact series number so I can order him the appropriate manual?
If you have a BlackBerry but aren’t quite sure what model number it is, all you have to do is go to Options –> About… You will see not only your exact model number, but, the OS version that currently running on the your device. Once you know your device model, head over to http://us.blackberry.com/support/devices/. You should be able to find and download any device specific documentation that you may need as well as any updated software for your device.
A question that we get asked frequently, especially by first time BlackBerry users that are new to smartphones, is how to transfer contacts from a SIM card to a BlackBerry. The process is pretty straight forward one you know where to look. All you have to do is…
That’s all there is to it.
As many trackball bearing users know, especially BlackBerry Tour 9630 users, the BlackBerry trackball is a magnet for lent and dust and tends to get gummed up from time to time preventing you from scrolling in all directions freely. This video shows you the quickest and easiest way to fix your BlackBerry Trackball, that from what I’ve heard, works most of the time.
If this doesn’t work, you can always replace your BlackBerry trackball, however, I would give this shot first as it may definitely save you time and ten bucks.
Thanks to William for sending this in…
We all know that the current BlackBerry Browser leaves much to be desired. Until the release of the new Webkit browser we’re stuck with this lackluster one. One gripe that BlackBerry users have with respect to the browser is its speed. Fortunately with a few setting tweaks in browser options you’ll notice a significant increase in your browsing speed.
