Emergency calls
About emergency calls
Your BlackBerry® device is designed to make emergency calls even when it is locked or 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. If you are outside of a wireless coverage area and the SOS wireless coverage indicator appears, you can only call emergency
numbers.
You can only make emergency calls by typing official emergency access numbers (for example, 911 in North America or 112 in countries
that are part of the European Union).
Make an emergency call
Perform one of the following actions:
• If your screen or BlackBerry® device is unlocked, in the phone application, type the emergency number. Press the Send key.
• If your device is locked, press the Lock key on the top of your device. Type the emergency number. Press the Send key.

About multiple message lists
Depending on your email setup option, you might be able to associate your BlackBerry® device with more than one email account. For
example, you might be able to associate your device with a work email account and one or more personal email accounts. If you associate
your device with more than one email account, multiple message lists might appear on your device. In a message list for a specific email
account, you can open and manage email messages for that email account, and you can send messages using the email address for the
email account. For more information about associating your device with more than one email account, see the BlackBerry Internet Service
Online Help.
Depending on your theme, a separate message list might appear for SMS text messages and MMS messages.
Use one message list or multiple message lists
By default, your BlackBerry® device theme determines whether SMS text messages appear in the same message list as email messages.

S/MIME-protected messages
S/MIME-protected message basics
About signing and encrypting messages
You can digitally sign or encrypt messages to add another level of security to email messages 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.
Sign or encrypt a message
You can sign or encrypt email messages and PIN messages.
1. When composing a message, change the Encoding field.
2. If necessary, change the Classification field.
Encrypt a message with a pass phrase
Your BlackBerry® device can encrypt email messages and PIN messages using a pass phrase shared between the sender and recipient.
1. In an unsent message, set the Encoding field to Encrypt or Sign and Encrypt.
2. Press the Menu key.
3. Click Options.
4. Set the Use Password-Based Encryption field to Yes.

About message classifications
If your BlackBerry® device is associated with an email account that uses a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server that supports this feature and
your administrator turns on message classifications, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server applies a minimum set of security actions to each
message that you compose, forward, or reply to, based on the classification that you assign to the message. Your administrator specifies
the message classifications that you can use.
If you receive a message that uses message classifications, you can view the abbreviation for the classification in the subject line of the
message and the full description for the classification in the body of the message. You can also view the abbreviation and full description
for the classification for a sent message in the sent items folder.

To perform this task, your BlackBerry® device must be associated with an email account that uses a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server that

The flash dims or turns off
If the battery power level drops below 20 percent, the flash dims to conserve battery power. In cold temperatures, when the battery power
level drops below 20 percent, the flash might turn off.
Some pictures that I take are blurry
In low lighting conditions, the camera might compensate for the lack of exposure by using a slower shutter speed. If you move the camera
before the shutter clicks, the picture might be blurry. If the camera is using a slower shutter speed and the viewfinder is not occupying
the full screen, an exclamation point indicator appears at the bottom of the screen.

Custom contact list field data is not appearing on my computer
You can only synchronize the data in a custom contact list field with a text field in the email application on your computer. For example,
you cannot add a contact's birthday to a custom contact list field on your BlackBerry® device and synchronize it with the email application
on your computer, because the birthday field is a date field in the email application on your computer.

About categories
You can create categories to group your contacts, tasks, and memos. You can also narrow the contacts, tasks, and memos that appear
based on categories.
Category names are not case sensitive. More than one category can apply to a contact, task, or memo. If you use IBM® Lotus Notes®, you
can apply more than one category to a task on your BlackBerry® device, but only one category synchronizes with the task in Lotus Notes.
Categories are shared between the contact list, the task list, and the memo list and changes that you make in one application are made
in all applications.

About notifications and sound profiles
Sound profiles define how your BlackBerry® device notifies you of calendar and task reminders, and incoming messages, calls, and browser
content. Your device has seven preloaded sound profiles: Loud, Medium, Silent, Vibrate Only, Normal, Phone Calls Only, and All Alerts
Off.
You can create custom sound profiles so you can set different notification options for different items, set ring tones, or set the volume for
notification. If you set notification volume to Escalating, the notification volume gradually increases.
You can also assign ring tones and notifications to specific contacts in your contact list so that phone calls and messages from the contact
are unique.

About typing
When you need to type, your BlackBerry® device displays one of three keyboard styles automatically, based on the field that you type in
and the orientation of your device.
If you are using your device in portrait view, you can switch between the SureType® technology keyboard and the multi-tap keyboard.
These keyboards show more than one letter on each key.
SureType technology combines a traditional phone-style key layout with a familiar computer-style letter layout. SureType technology is
designed to predict words as you type them.
If you are using your device in landscape view, you can type on a keyboard that uses a computer-style letter layout with one letter on each
key.

Arabic and Russian typing input methods
About typing in Arabic or Russian
If your BlackBerry® Device Software includes language support for Arabic or Russian and you are using your device in landscape view,
you can type in Arabic or Russian using the SureType® input method or the multi-tap input method.
When you use the SureType input method, you press the letter key for each letter in a word once, even if two letters appear on the key. As
you type, a list of possible letter combinations and words appears on the screen. SureType technology selects letter combinations or words
from the list based on context. If you try to type a word or letter combination (for example, a web address or an abbreviation) that SureType
technology does not recognize, you can use the list that appears on the screen to build the word letter by letter. SureType technology is
designed to "learn" new words or letter combinations that you type.
When you use the multi-tap input method, you press a letter key once to type the first letter on a key and twice to type the second letter,
if a second letter appears on the key.
SureType technology is the default typing input method for most fields. Multi-tap is the default for phone number and password fields.
You can set your typing input method for all fields to multi-tap.

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 messages between your device and the email application on your
computer over the wireless network. When you file or delete email messages on your device, these email messages should be filed or
deleted in your email application. Likewise, any changes that you make to email messages in the email application on your computer
should be reflected on your device.
If wireless data synchronization or wireless email reconciliation is not available on your device or you have turned them off, you can use
the synchronization tool of the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager to synchronize your organizer data and email messages. For more

Custom contact list field data is not appearing on my computer
You can only synchronize the data in a custom contact list field with a text field in the email application on your computer. For example,
you cannot add a contact's birthday to a custom contact list field on your BlackBerry® device and synchronize it with the email application
on your computer, because the birthday field is a date field in the email application on your computer.
Some characters in calendar entries do not appear correctly after synchronization
If you schedule appointments or meetings on your BlackBerry® device that contain special characters or accents, your computer might
not support these characters.
On your computer, verify that you are using the correct default code page and that the correct font support is installed on your computer.

About GPS technology
You can use GPS technology on your BlackBerry® device to get your GPS location and to use location-based applications and locationbased services. Location-based applications can use your GPS location to provide you with other location-based information. For example,
a location-based application could use your GPS location to provide you with 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.

About file encryption
File encryption is designed to protect the data 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,
a 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 a 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.
Encrypt the files in the device memory and on a media card
1. In the device options, click Memory.
2. Perform one of the following actions:
• To encrypt files using an encryption key that your device generates, change the Encryption Mode field to Device.

About content protection
Content protection is designed to encrypt your BlackBerry® device data. When content protection is turned on, your device uses a private
key to encrypt data as it is stored on the device, including data that your device receives when it is locked. Your device decrypts data as
you access it.
You can set content protection to include or exclude your contacts. If you turn on content protection for contacts and you receive a call
when the device is locked, the caller name does not appear on the screen.
When you lock your device, an open lock indicator appears in the device status section of the screen to indicate that your device is deleting
a copy of the private key from the temporary device memory. A lock indicator appears when the device has deleted the key.

Smart cards
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.
227
User Guide
Smart cards
If you use a smart card certificate to authenticate to 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.
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 two-factor authentication
Two-factor authentication, which requires an item that you have (for example, a smart card) and an item that you know (for example, a
pass phrase), is designed to provide additional security for your BlackBerry® device. You can use a smart card for two-factor authentication
when you log in to your device, or you can use a software token for two-factor authentication when you use your device with RSA® software
as a hardware token.
If you use two-factor authentication, you must type your pass phrase when you

About smart password entry
If you use two-factor authentication and your BlackBerry® device password or smart card password is numeric, you might be able to use
smart password entry in some password fields. When smart password entry is turned on, your device is designed to remember the format
of a password that you type in a password field. When you type the password again, your device applies a smart password filter to the
password field. If the password is numeric, a 123 indicator appears beside the password field. If the password is alphanumeric, an ABC
indicator appears beside the password field.
To use smart password entry, two-factor authentication must be turned on and the correct smart card driver and smart card reader must
be installed on your device.
Turn off smart password entry
You can turn off smart password entry to reduce the chance that someone might guess your BlackBerry® device password or smart card

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.

2. Perform any of the following actions:
• To submit your word, click the word at the top of the screen.
• To deselect a letter, click the letter again.
