My mate whitey reckons this phone doesnt have a colour screen. He is so wack
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2008how to increase ring volume?go to your menu options and select profiles in there you will find where it says loud, vibrate, quiet, normal, phone only, and off. This will make your ringtone loud or low.
These smartphones are cheap as chips on Ebay. Expect to pay about GB£20 (about US$30).
The phones are easy and cheap or even free to unlock. Upgrading the operating system is child's play. So too is overriding any corporate "IT policy" you sometimes find installed on a second-user phone. With a restrictive IT policy still in place, this can prevent full use of the handset.
Using a standard mini-USB data cable and a PC, third party software such as the BOLT web browser and the Google gmail client can be installed on the phone. Both these applications are free to download. Once these software packages installed, you no longer need to pay for a Blackberry data contract. A simple low-cost generic data plan is adequate.
I have hacked several 8707v and 8707g Blackberries for the sport of it, and have passed them on to friends as fully functional "Crackberries".
With a PAYG deal from the Three.co.uk cell network, the handsets provide full internet access and email for just GB£5 every three months!
Voice calls with PAYG are still quite expensive on Three, and that's partly the fault of Research in Motion, the makers of the Blackberry. RIM have steadfastly refused to release a Skype client for their handsets. However, there are other methods for bridging voice calls onto VoIP....
I would be interested to hear from anyone wishing to pursue open source development of "call bridging" solutions using Blackberries... Expertise in Linux, Asterisk, Bash scripting, C, and Java for embedded systems would be pre-requisites.
All the best,
Its kinda fun to look back, a time when Blackberries were silver colored now everything is black, they all look the same to me, the storm and pearls are the only ones that look a bit different, I see no difference between a Tour and a Bold and most importantly they should try a different form factor and maybe just maybe they can compete on level ground with others, Touchscreen on the storm was a bad idea, it had a lot of issues, they just do something like a Touch Pro
The phone is absolute rubbish, its like holding a brick and masturbating in a single hand (Very awkward) It's very hard to use and has very limited means for expansion

My Blackberry phone alarms at early hours of the morning due to her Outlook Calendar appointments for the day. Can you advise on how we can stop it from happening please.
I actually have the phone a moth ago,the phone is actually been used by my sister. When my sister decided that we swap phone i immediately grab the opportunity.
But the the thing is i cant connect to the wireless connetion coz i was a prepaid subscriber back then and when i talked to my friends they infromed me that i have to be in a poset paid account for me to be able to connect but when i already a postpaid user my network provider told me that i have to subscribe to the blackberry service and that will be for a additional i said yes immediately
The blackberry 8707 is worth it!! i can connect anywhere,anytime i want even though there is no cam available but that doesn't matter..
Even if im speaing a bit on this gadget but its ok... iloe it it really reflects on my personality just a little bit more on the navigation!!!
We are now living in the technology friendly world, so that everybody is seaching for a hand phone which is having the most advanced technologies like digital camera, 3G, internet services and touch screen optin. The only problem for me in this phone is some of the above features is missing. But I like the design and the brand BLACKBERRY very much, I am waiting for this for a long time, that I thought that BLACKBERRY also will bring a mind blowing hand phone with full of impressive features and in an affordable price. Still I am waiting for this...
As a prior HTC windows mobile user the bb8707 feels very awkward. Supplied by my company's IT people so no fun as yet. I wanted to add a media player to use the phone as an mp3 player. Installed bb software from the bb website, but the Media player hangs up all the time, althouth the phone is connected. Any idea why???
Also, why can't I see the phone from my desktop PC as I could with my HTC. In Explorer nothing. Only in the Bb desktop manager it is online and active.
