Your BlackBerry® device supports multitasking, which allows you to run more than one application at a time. During a call, for example, you
might want to switch to the calendar application to view your appointments or switch to the contacts application to look up a contact. While
you are playing a song, you might want to switch to the messages application to reply to a message.
There are also shortcuts for most applications that can help you to perform common tasks quickly.
Note: The more applications that you have running, the more memory and battery power your device uses. To optimize the performance of
your device, try to close applications when you are finished with them.

Emergency calls
About emergency calls and Emergency Callback Mode
If you are outside of a wireless coverage area and the SOS wireless coverage indicator appears at the top of the screen, you can call only
emergency numbers. Your BlackBerry® device is designed to allow emergency calls even when your device is locked. Depending on your device
model and the wireless network that your device is connected to, your device is also designed to allow emergency calls when the SIM card is
not inserted. If the connection to the wireless network is turned off when you initiate an emergency call, your device is designed to connect to
the wireless network automatically. You can make emergency calls by typing only official emergency access numbers (for example, 911 or 112).
Note: You should not rely on any wireless device for essential communications, including medical emergencies. Emergency numbers may vary
by location and emergency calls may be blocked or impeded by network, environmental, or interference issues.
If your device is connected to a CDMA network, when you end an emergency call, your device enters Emergency Callback Mode. This mode
allows the operator to call you back or find your approximate location. Depending on your wireless service provider, Emergency Callback Mode
is active for 5 minutes or until you make a non-emergency call. In Emergency Callback Mode, you cannot send and receive messages or browse
web pages.

With the smart-dialing feature, you can set a default country code and area code for phone numbers so that you do not have to dial a country
code and area code each time that you make a call, unless the country code or area code are different from the default codes that you set.
Some country codes are not supported by the smart-dialing feature.
In the smart-dialing options, you can also specify the main phone number for an organization that you call frequently so that you can quickly
call a contact in that organization by dialing only the extension for the contact. If you add contacts from that organization to your contact list,
when you add their phone numbers, you can type only the extensions instead of typing out the main phone number for the organization.

supported on their device, so that they do not have to dial the conference call bridge number and access codes. If you do not have a conference
call bridge number, you can create a conference call by calling other contacts and joining the calls together.

Synchronizing email
About synchronization
The wireless data synchronization feature is designed to synchronize organizer data (contacts, calendar entries, tasks, and memos) between
your BlackBerry® device and the email application on your computer over the wireless network.
The wireless email reconciliation feature is designed to reconcile email between your device and the email application on your computer over
the wireless network. When you file or delete email on your device, these email should be filed or deleted in your email application. Likewise,
any changes that you make to email in the email application on your computer should be reflected on your device.
In rare cases, if your device does not recognize fields in a contact, calendar entry, or email account, some data or email cannot be synchronized
or reconciled.
If wireless data synchronization or wireless email reconciliation is not available on your device or you have turned off these features, you can
use the synchronization tool of the BlackBerry® Desktop Software to synchronize your organizer data and email. For more information, see the
Help in the BlackBerry Desktop Software.
Research In Motion recommends that you regularly create and save a backup file on your computer, especially before you update any software.
Maintaining an up-to-date backup file on your computer might allow you to recover device data if your device is lost, stolen, or corrupted by
an unforeseen issue.

Cell broadcasting
About cell broadcasting
Cell broadcasting is designed to enable wireless service providers to use SMS text messaging to send information to all BlackBerry® devices
in a specific geographical area simultaneously. You can receive cell broadcast messages that contain a specific type of information by subscribing
to a cell broadcast channel that provides that type of information. Different cell broadcast channels send different cell broadcast messages.
For example, one cell broadcast channel might send regular weather forecasts while another might send traffic reports.
Turn on cell broadcasting
To perform this task, your BlackBerry® device must use a SIM card, and your wireless service provider must set up your SIM card with a cell
broadcast channel or provide you with the ID for a cell broadcast channel.
Depending on your wireless service provider and the wireless network that your device is connected to, this feature might not be supported.
1. On the Home screen or in a folder, click the Options icon.
2. Click Device > Advanced System Settings > Cell Broadcast Settings.
3. Select the Cell Broadcasting Service check box.
• If one or more cell broadcast channels appear on the screen, select the check box beside the channel.
• If no cell broadcast channels appear on the screen, highlight the Empty field. Press the
key > Add Channel. Type the channel
ID and a nickname. Click OK.
4. Select the check box beside a language.
5. Press the
key > Save.
To turn off cell broadcasting, clear the Cell Broadcasting Service check box. Before you turn off cell broadcasting, verify that your wireless
service provider does not use cell broadcasting to manage services, such as preferred rates, based on your location.

About signing and encrypting messages
If your email account uses a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server that supports this feature, you can digitally sign or encrypt messages to add another
level of security to email and PIN messages that you send from your BlackBerry device. Digital signatures are designed to help recipients verify
the authenticity and integrity of messages that you send. When you digitally sign a message using your private key, recipients use your public
key to verify that the message is from you and that the message has not been changed.
Encryption is designed to keep messages confidential. When you encrypt a message, your device uses the recipient’s public key to encrypt the
message. Recipients use their private key to decrypt the message.
To send an encrypted PIN message, you must have a PIN and an email address for the contact in your contact list. Your device uses the email
address in your contact list to locate a PGP® key or certificate for the contact.

About files and attachments
You can view and download attachments and save them to the BlackBerry® device memory or on a media card. If your email account uses a
BlackBerry® Enterprise Server that supports accessing files on your organization's network, you can preview files from your organization's
network and save the files to your device or attach them directly to email messages without downloading them. You can use the Files application
to view a list of all the files that are saved on your device. You can also rename, move, and delete files on your organization's network from your
device.
To change attachments or files that you download, you can use third-party editing applications, such as Documents to Go®, that are designed
for use on BlackBerry devices.

About compression
Compression is designed to reduce the size of your BlackBerry® device data while maintaining the integrity of that data. When compression
is turned on, your device compresses all device data, including messages, contacts, calendar entries, tasks, and memos. You should keep
compression turned on.
If both compression and encryption are turned on, your device compresses device data before encrypting it.
About file encryption
File encryption is designed to protect files that you store in the BlackBerry® device memory and on a media card that can be inserted in your
device. You can encrypt the files in the device memory and on your media card using an encryption key that your device generates, your device
password, or both.
If you encrypt the files using an encryption key that your device generates, you can only access the files on your media card when the media
card is inserted in your device. If you encrypt the files using your device password, you can access the files on your media card in any device
that you insert your media card into, as long as you know the password for the device.
Turn on encryption
To encrypt data on yourBlackBerry® device, you must have set a password for your device.
Depending on the amount of storage space available for storing files on your device, you might not be able to encrypt files on your device.

About ring tones, sounds, and alerts
The profile that you select in the Sound and Alert Profiles application defines how your BlackBerry® device alerts you of phone calls, messages,
reminders, and browser content.
Your device has a Normal profile and five other preloaded profiles: Loud, Medium, Vibrate Only, Silent, and Phone Calls Only. You can change
the tones in any preloaded profile to an audio file that is stored in your device memory or on a media card, or you can create additional profiles.
The All Alerts Off profile cannot be changed.
By default, some of the settings in the preloaded profiles are based on the settings in the Normal profile. For example, when you change the
ring tone in the Normal profile, the ring tone in the Loud profile, Medium profile, and Phone Calls Only profile is automatically updated. If you
do not want specific settings for a preloaded profile to update automatically when you change the corresponding setting in the Normal profile,
you can manually change the settings in that preloaded profile.
You can create contact alerts, which alert you when particular contacts call you or send you a message. Contact alerts are always turned on,
and do not turn off unless you select the All Alerts Off profile. For example, even if you select the Silent profile or Vibrate Only profile, audible
contact alerts remain audible until you select the All Alerts Off profile.

supported on their device, so that they do not have to dial the conference call bridge number and access codes. If you do not have a conference
call bridge number, you can create a conference call by calling other contacts and joining the calls together.

About synchronization
The wireless data synchronization feature is designed to synchronize organizer data (contacts, calendar entries, tasks, and memos) between
your BlackBerry® device and the email application on your computer over the wireless network.
The wireless email reconciliation feature is designed to reconcile email between your device and the email application on your computer over
the wireless network. When you file or delete email on your device, these email should be filed or deleted in your email application. Likewise,
any changes that you make to email in the email application on your computer should be reflected on your device.
In rare cases, if your device does not recognize fields in a contact, calendar entry, or email account, some data or email cannot be synchronized
or reconciled.
If wireless data synchronization or wireless email reconciliation is not available on your device or you have turned off these features, you can
use the synchronization tool of the BlackBerry® Desktop Software to synchronize your organizer data and email. For more information, see the
Help in the BlackBerry Desktop Software.

The contact pictures in applications (for example, in the contacts application), might change if you set more than one application on your

Synchronizing tasks and memos
About synchronization
The wireless data synchronization feature is designed to synchronize organizer data (contacts, calendar entries, tasks, and memos) between
your BlackBerry® device and the email application on your computer over the wireless network.
The wireless email reconciliation feature is designed to reconcile email between your device and the email application on your computer over
the wireless network. When you file or delete email on your device, these email should be filed or deleted in your email application. Likewise,
any changes that you make to email in the email application on your computer should be reflected on your device.
In rare cases, if your device does not recognize fields in a contact, calendar entry, or email account, some data or email cannot be synchronized
or reconciled.
If wireless data synchronization or wireless email reconciliation is not available on your device or you have turned off these features, you can
use the synchronization tool of the BlackBerry® Desktop Software to synchronize your organizer data and email. For more information, see the
Help in the BlackBerry Desktop Software.
Research In Motion recommends that you regularly create and save a backup file on your computer, especially before you update any software.
Maintaining an up-to-date backup file on your computer might allow you to recover device data if your device is lost, stolen, or corrupted by
an unforeseen issue.

About backing up and restoring device data
If you have installed the BlackBerry® Desktop Software on your computer, you can back up and restore most of your BlackBerry device data,
including messages, organizer data, fonts, saved searches, and browser bookmarks using the backup and restore tool of the BlackBerry Desktop
Software. For more information, see the Help in the BlackBerry Desktop Software.
If your email account uses a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, you might be able to restore synchronized organizer data to your device over the
wireless network. To restore synchronized organizer data over the wireless network, you must have an activation password. For more information,
contact your administrator.

Maintaining an up-to-date backup file on your computer might allow you to recover device data if your device is lost, stolen, or corrupted by
an unforeseen issue.
About synchronization conflicts
A synchronization conflict occurs when you change the same email or organizer data item on your BlackBerry® device and in the email application
on your computer.
If you reconcile your email using wireless email reconciliation, on your device, you can set whether the email on your device or the email on
your computer takes precedence when an email reconciliation conflict occurs.
If you synchronize your organizer data using wireless data synchronization, the organizer data on your computer takes precedence over the
organizer data on your device when a data synchronization conflict occurs.
Research In Motion recommends that you regularly create and save a backup file on your computer, especially before you update any software.
Maintaining an up-to-date backup file on your computer might allow you to recover device data if your device is lost, stolen, or corrupted by
an unforeseen issue.
Manage data synchronization conflicts
You can change how conflicts that occur during organizer data synchronization are resolved by turning off wireless data synchronization,
changing conflict resolution options, and synchronizing organizer data using the synchronization tool of the BlackBerry® Desktop Software.
For more information about managing conflicts that occur during organizer data synchronization, see the Help in the BlackBerry Desktop
Software.

About GPS technology
Depending on your wireless service provider, this feature might not be supported.
You can use GPS technology on your BlackBerry® device to get your GPS location and to use location-based applications and location-based
services. Location-based applications can use your GPS location to provide you with information such as driving directions.
If your device does not have an internal GPS receiver or your wireless service provider does not support location-based services and you want
to use GPS technology, you can pair your BlackBerry device with a Bluetooth® enabled GPS receiver. For more information, contact your wireless
service provider.
If your device is connected to a CDMA network and you make an emergency call or your device is in Emergency Callback Mode, an emergency
operator might be able to use GPS technology to estimate your location.
Note: In an emergency, always provide the emergency operator with as much information as possible. Emergency operators might not be able
to estimate your location using only GPS technology.

About the preferred wireless network list
Your wireless service provider might have agreements with other wireless service providers that permit you to use their services when you are
traveling. You can use the preferred wireless network list to control the order in which your BlackBerry® device uses these other wireless
networks.
Your device tries to connect to a wireless network based on the order in which the wireless networks appear in your preferred wireless network
list. When you travel, your device scans for the wireless networks on this list first. If no wireless network on the list is available, your device is
designed to connect to another available wireless network automatically.
Note: Extra fees usually apply when you roam. For more information about roaming fees, contact your wireless service provider.

Wi-Fi technology
Depending on your BlackBerry® device model, the Wi-Fi® feature might not be supported.
About connecting to a Wi-Fi network
With Wi-Fi® technology, your BlackBerry® device can access the Internet by connecting to a wireless router or wireless access point at your
home, work, or in a hotspot area. Your device uses the Wi-Fi network instead of the mobile network to visit web pages, send and receive email
messages, and so on. When you connect to the Internet with a Wi-Fi network, you might avoid data charges that are associated with using your
mobile network, and, in many cases, the connection speed is faster.
Hotspots are available in many public places, such as libraries, airports, hotels, coffee shops, and so on. Some hotspots are free to use, while
others require payment. Your wireless service provider might provide an application for your device that allows you to log in to a hotspot. If you
do not have an application on your device, you might have to set up your own account online and log in manually.
If you have an access point or router that supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup™, you can connect to it using Wi-Fi Protected Setup.
When you connect to a Wi-Fi network, your device saves the connection information so that the next time that you are within range of that
network, your device connects to it automatically.
Connect to a Wi-Fi network
1. On the Home screen, click the connections area at the top of the screen, or click the Manage Connections icon.
2. Click Set Up Wi-Fi.
3. If you want to connect to a public hotspot or to a Wi-Fi® network that does not require authentication, select the Show Open networks
only check box.
4. Click the Wi-Fi network that you want to connect to.
5. If the Wi-Fi network requires authentication, type a password for the network.
The name of the Wi-Fi network appears at the top of the Home screen.
Connect to a Wi-Fi network using Wi-Fi Protected Setup
If your wireless router or wireless access point includes Wi-Fi Protected Setup™, you can quickly connect to a Wi-Fi® network without entering
a long password.
1. On the Home screen, click the connections area at the top of the screen, or click the Manage Connections icon.
2. Click Set Up Wi-Fi > Other Ways to Connect.
• To use the Wi-Fi Protected Setup button on your router or access point, click Press Button on Router. On your router or access point,
press the Wi-Fi Protected Setup button. On your BlackBerry® device, click Start.
• To use a PIN, click Enter PIN into router. On your device, click Start. Your device provides you with a PIN. On the administration
screen for your router or access point, type the PIN.

Bluetooth technology basics
About Bluetooth technology
Bluetooth® technology is designed to enable you to establish a wireless connection between your BlackBerry® device and a Bluetooth enabled
device, such as a handsfree car kit or wireless stereo headset.
Before you can connect your BlackBerry device to a Bluetooth enabled device, you must first turn on Bluetooth technology on both devices and
then pair the devices. Pairing establishes a relationship between the devices and usually needs to be done only once.
After you have paired the devices, you can then connect the devices when the Bluetooth enabled device is within range of your BlackBerry
device (a typical range is approximately 10 meters). For best results, keep your BlackBerry device within direct line of sight of the Bluetooth
enabled device. For example, if your BlackBerry device is on the right side of your body, wear a Bluetooth enabled headset in your right ear.
When you turn on Bluetooth technology or when you connect your BlackBerry device to another Bluetooth enabled device, Bluetooth status
indicators appear at the top of the Home screen. For more information about Bluetooth indicators, see the printed documentation that came
with your BlackBerry device.
Turn on Bluetooth technology
1. On the Home screen, click the connections area at the top of the screen, or click the Manage Connections icon.

device. The passkey is most often a numeric or alphanumeric code.
• If the Bluetooth enabled device has a keyboard (for example, a laptop), type a pairing passkey of your choice on both devices.

About compression
Compression is designed to reduce the size of your BlackBerry® device data while maintaining the integrity of that data. When compression
is turned on, your device compresses all device data, including messages, contacts, calendar entries, tasks, and memos. You should keep
compression turned on.
If both compression and encryption are turned on, your device compresses device data before encrypting it.
About file encryption
File encryption is designed to protect files that you store in the BlackBerry® device memory and on a media card that can be inserted in your
device. You can encrypt the files in the device memory and on your media card using an encryption key that your device generates, your device
password, or both.
If you encrypt the files using an encryption key that your device generates, you can only access the files on your media card when the media
card is inserted in your device. If you encrypt the files using your device password, you can access the files on your media card in any device
that you insert your media card into, as long as you know the password for the device.

About encrypting data on your device
When encryption for data on your BlackBerry® device is turned on, your device uses a private key to encrypt data as it is stored on your device,
including data that your device receives when it is locked. Your device decrypts data as you access it.
You can set encryption to include or exclude your contacts. If you turn on encryption for contacts and you receive a call when your device is
locked, the caller name does not appear on the screen.
If you use a smart card certificate for authentication, depending on the smart card, you might also be able to use one of your smart card
certificates to provide two-factor encryption. In order to access the encrypted content, you must provide your device password and also connect
your device to your smart card reader.
When you lock your device, an open lock indicator appears at the top of the screen to indicate that your device is in the process of securing
your data, which includes deleting a copy of the private key from the temporary device memory. A lock indicator appears at the top of the
screen when your device has deleted the key.

About using a smart card with your device
Smart cards store certificates and private keys. You can use a smart card reader to import certificates from a smart card to the key store on
your BlackBerry® device, but you cannot import private keys. As a result, private key operations such as signing and decryption use the smart
card, and public key operations such as verification and encryption use the public certificates on your device.
If you use a smart card certificate to authenticate with your device, after you connect your smart card reader to your device, your device requests
authentication from the smart card each time that you unlock your device.
You can install multiple smart card drivers on your device, including drivers for microSD smart cards, but you can only authenticate to one smart
card at a time. If you are authenticating using a microSD smart card and you want to transfer media files between your microSD smart card
and your computer in mass storage mode, you must temporarily turn off two-factor authentication or select a different authentication option.
If the S/MIME Support Package for BlackBerry® devices is installed on your device, you can use smart card certificates to send S/MIMEprotected messages.

About synchronization
The wireless data synchronization feature is designed to synchronize organizer data (contacts, calendar entries, tasks, and memos) between
your BlackBerry® device and the email application on your computer over the wireless network.
The wireless email reconciliation feature is designed to reconcile email between your device and the email application on your computer over
the wireless network. When you file or delete email on your device, these email should be filed or deleted in your email application. Likewise,
any changes that you make to email in the email application on your computer should be reflected on your device.
In rare cases, if your device does not recognize fields in a contact, calendar entry, or email account, some data or email cannot be synchronized
or reconciled.
If wireless data synchronization or wireless email reconciliation is not available on your device or you have turned off these features, you can
use the synchronization tool of the BlackBerry® Desktop Software to synchronize your organizer data and email. For more information, see the

About the Word Mole game
The object of the Word Mole® game is to form words using the letters in the garden. If you form a word using letters that are directly above,
below, or beside each other in the garden, you receive new letters which you can use to form new words. Otherwise, holes appear in the garden,
making it harder to form new words. You can replace a hole with a new letter by forming a word that uses a letter that is beside the hole.
In a single-player game, you complete a level by submitting enough words to reach the required point goal before the time expires. In a practice
game, you have unlimited time to play a game. In a multiplayer game, you compete against other players to win awards for achievements such
as submitting the longest word, or receiving the least number of holes.
