Updated look and feel

Setup and basics

Splashes of color, flattened buttons and screen layouts, and new wallpaper and icons – these are some of the elements you will notice with the fresh new look of BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.1.

Modernized visual elements help you navigate your BlackBerry device and improve your productivity within apps. In the apps installed with the BlackBerry 10 OS, the action bar at the bottom of the screen uses color to highlight the next, or next best action. Icons for key tasks remain visible in the action bar to help you stay productive and get work done. In some apps, for example Adobe Reader, the action bar disappears when you scroll, giving you a full-screen view of the content.

On the home screen you can see your open apps, and when you swipe left you can see all your apps. By default, when no apps are open, the home screen displays only your wallpaper. Also, there is no restriction on the number of apps you can add to folders on the home screen.

Android apps that you download to your device are closely integrated with the BlackBerry 10 OS. When you tap the share icon in an Android app, you can share the Android app content with contacts that are associated with other apps on your device (for example, BBM contacts) or share the information with another app (for example, the BlackBerry Remember app). Also, on the Accounts screen, you can view accounts that are associated with some Android apps that you download to your device.

Device Switch

Switching to your new BlackBerry 10 device has never been easier. Whether you are switching from an iPhone, an Android device, or a BlackBerry device, there are several options that you can use to transfer your data.

There are two ways you can switch to a BlackBerry 10 device:

• The Device Switch app

If you are switching from a BlackBerry 7 device, you can also use a media card to transfer data.

Preparing to switch devices

Before you begin switching to your new BlackBerry 10 device, take a moment to make sure that you have completed the following list.

• Complete all of the instructions in the Setup app that opens the first time that your BlackBerry 10 device starts after you insert the battery.

• If you have information saved to your SIM card, such as contact information, save the data to the storage space on your previous device or your media card before you begin to switch devices.

• If you have any usernames or passwords saved on your previous device, such as your BlackBerry ID, consider temporarily writing this information down so that you have it when you're ready to add accounts to your new device.

Update BBM

Although it's not required to switch BlackBerry devices, you should update to the latest available version of BBM and associate BBM with your BlackBerry ID before you switch devices.

1.

To see which version of BBM you're running on your old device, look for BlackBerry Messenger in your list of installed applications.

Voicemail

Depending on your service provider, there are two different types of voicemail available on your BlackBerry device: standard voicemail and a visual voicemail service.

With standard voicemail, you can set up your voicemail access number and password, so you can quickly call in to your voicemail service from the Calls screen in the Phone app.

If you subscribe to a visual voicemail service, you can view a list of your voicemail messages, play your voicemail messages, and change various voicemail settings from your BlackBerry device, without having to call in to your voicemail service.

Depending on the features your service provider supports, your voicemail messages can be automatically downloaded to your device and you can pause, fast-forward, or rewind the voicemail message as you listen to it. You can also forward a voicemail message, send a reply to the person who left you a voicemail message, or delete a voicemail message from within the Phone app or the BlackBerry Hub.

Your service provider might automatically delete messages after a certain period of time. If you don't want a message to get automatically deleted, you can save it to your device.

Depending on your country or region, a visual voicemail service might not be available. You need to subscribe to a visual voicemail service to access the features. Contact your service provider to subscribe.

Securing your email

You can digitally sign or encrypt messages if you use a work email account that supports S/MIME or PGP protected messages or IBM Notes email encryption on your BlackBerry device. Digitally signing or encrypting messages adds another level of security to email messages that you send from your device.

Digital signatures are designed to help recipients verify the authenticity and integrity of messages that you send. With S/

MIME-protected messages, 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 hasn't been changed.

Encryption is designed to keep messages confidential. With S/MIME-protected messages, 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.

If you use a work account that supports PGP protected messages, you can digitally sign, encrypt, or sign and encrypt messages using PGP protection. You need to store the recipient's public key on your BlackBerry device to send encrypted email messages. You need to store your private key on your device to send digitally signed email messages.

If your device is associated with a CRL or an OCSP server, when you add recipients to an encrypted message, your device tries to retrieve a certificate status for each recipient. You are unable to send the message until certificate statuses are received for all recipients. If certificates can't be found or are invalid, the recipients' names appear as red.

Set up S/MIME-protected messaging

You need to store a private key and certificate on your BlackBerry device to send digitally signed or encrypted email messages using S/MIME-protected messaging. You can store a key and certificate by importing the files from a work email message or a media card.

Your BlackBerry device supports keys and certificates in the following file formats and file name extensions:

If you use a work account that supports PGP protected messages, you can digitally sign, encrypt, or sign and encrypt messages using PGP protection. You need to store the recipient's public key on your BlackBerry device to send encrypted email messages. You need to store your private key on your device to send digitally signed email messages.

Update secure email settings

Depending on your permissions, you can change the email security that is used for all the messages you send. For example, if you use S/MIME to protect your messages, you can send clear-signed messages that any email application can open, or opaque-signed messages that only email applications that support encryption can open.

How can I extend battery life?

Battery life varies depending on how you use your BlackBerry device. To help battery power last longer, here are some considerations:

Dim the screen

Prolong battery life by changing your device settings to dim the screen.

Do any of the following:

• To adjust the screen brightness, choose a dark-colored wallpaper, or change the screen lock timeout, on the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen. Tap Settings > Display.

• To automatically lock your device and dim the screen when it's in a BlackBerry case or holster, on the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen. Tap Settings > Security and Privacy > Device Password > Lock Device

When Holstered.

Decrease volume

Do any of the following:

• To decrease the device volume, use the volume keys on the right side of your device.

• To adjust other volume settings such as application volume or notifications, on the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen. Tap Settings > Main Volume or Notifications.

Close apps

Increase how long a single charge lasts by closing any apps or features that you finished using so that they aren't continuously running in the background. Some features consume more battery power than others. Close or turn off these apps and features when you don't use them: The camera, the BlackBerry Browser, GPS, and Bluetooth technology.

Turn off connections

If your device is out of a wireless coverage area, you can turn off the connection so that your device doesn't search for a network signal continuously. You can also help extend battery life by deleting saved Wi-Fi networks that you no longer use.

Do any of the following:

Settings >

Networks and Connections > Wi-Fi > . Tap and hold the network that you want to delete. Tap .

Update your software

You can often gain a boost in power savings by using the latest version of the BlackBerry 10 OS. If a software update is available for your device, a notification appears in the BlackBerry Hub.

Use a media card

Reduce power usage by keeping less data on your device. Save data to a media card instead of your device storage space.

Turn off the flash

Conserve more power by turning off the flash when taking pictures.

Tip: Like most electronic devices, your device battery drains less quickly if you keep it out of the sun and other hot places, keep the battery contacts clean, and charge it regularly. Avoid leaving your device turned off with a low battery power level for an extended time.

Device and battery safety

You should only use the battery that BlackBerry specifies for use with your particular BlackBerry device model. If you use any other battery, you might invalidate any warranty provided with your device.

CAUTION: There is a risk of explosion if the battery is replaced with an incorrect battery type. Do not attempt to replace your non-removable battery. Only qualified service personnel should perform repairs or battery replacements to your device.

Device and battery disposal

Please recycle your BlackBerry device and battery in accordance with your local regulations. Do not dispose of either your device or battery in a fire. Your device or battery should not be placed in household waste bins.

Choosing a connection

Your BlackBerry device is capable of a wide range of connections, to increase what you can do with your device and how it interacts with other devices. Take a look at the list of connections to learn about the different types of connections, some tips for when to use each connection, and maybe learn a few things you didn't know you could do.

Network connections

Mobile network

A mobile network connection allows your BlackBerry device to make calls and, if you have a data plan, use data services such as Internet browsing. In some locations, such as in a hospital or on an airplane, you need to turn off your mobile network connection, but usually you can just leave your mobile network connection on.

Wi-Fi

A Wi-Fi network connection is another way to get data services on your device, but unlike using the mobile network, using Wi-Fi doesn't add charges to your data plan. Your device is designed to try to use saved Wi-Fi networks before it tries to use the mobile network for basic data functions such as using the Internet or downloading apps. You can leave Wi-Fi on so that as soon as you're in range of a saved Wi-Fi network, your device connects to it automatically, but remember that if you leave Wi-Fi on all the time your battery can drain faster.

146

User Guide Settings

Connections between devices

USB

You can use a USB cable to create a two-way connection between your BlackBerry device and your computer. Your device appears on your computer as a mapped drive. If you turn on the USB Mass Storage Mode feature, your device appears on your computer as a removable storage device. You can usually use a USB connection to drag files between your device and your computer, depending on the features of your computer.

You can use a micro USB on-the-go to USB 2.0 adapter to connect your device to a keyboard, mouse, gamepad, external storage drive, or other USB device. You can use the File Manager app to view files on your external storage drive.

Wi-Fi Direct connection

When you connect your BlackBerry device to other devices using a Wi-Fi Direct connection, you can perform actions such as sharing a document without needing an Internet connection. Because a Wi-Fi Direct connection creates a network, you can connect to multiple devices at the same time.

Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast connection

Miracast allows you to wirelessly show what's on the screen of your BlackBerry device on another device such as a

TV or computer monitor. To display your screen on a device that isn't a Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast device, you'll need to connect using a wireless display adapter or use an HDMI cable to connect your BlackBerry device to the other device.

Bluetooth technology

Bluetooth wireless technology allows you to create a direct connection between your BlackBerry device and another

Bluetooth enabled device. Although you can transfer files over a Bluetooth connection, because of its ability to stream content, Bluetooth connections are more commonly used for actions such as playing the music on your

BlackBerry device through a separate speaker or making calls from a headset that is using your BlackBerry device's mobile network connection.

NFC

NFC is a short-range wireless technology that's used for quickly creating connections between your BlackBerry device and other NFC-enabled devices or NFC tags. With NFC you don't need to enter pairing information to make a connection, so it's useful for on-the-go actions such as transferring contact cards with people you meet, or grabbing information from a poster that contains an NFC tag. Depending on your wireless service provider and the applications you have installed on your BlackBerry device, NFC can also be used to turn your device into a digital wallet to allow you to do things such as make payments with your BlackBerry device.

Shared Internet connections

You can use your BlackBerry device's connection to the mobile network to allow other devices to access the Internet. This functionality is particularly useful if you want to browse the Internet on your laptop or Wi-Fi only tablet but you don't have access to a Wi-Fi network.

147

User Guide Settings

Internet tethering

You can use Internet tethering when you only have one device that you want to connect to the Internet through your

BlackBerry device's mobile network connection. You can connect the device to your BlackBerry device using a USB cable or, if both devices are Bluetooth enabled, you can use Bluetooth technology instead.

Mobile Hotspot

You can use Mobile Hotspot mode to connect up to eight devices to your BlackBerry device. (The number of devices that you can connect depends on your wireless service provider.) Connecting your devices using Mobile

Hotspot mode is like connecting to a Wi-Fi router; you can use the Wi-Fi connections on your devices, but you don't need access to a Wi-Fi network.

VPN connections

You can connect your BlackBerry device to a virtual private network (VPN) over your mobile network or using a Wi-Fi connection. While your device is connected to the VPN, you can send data to and receive data from the private network across the public network.

Turn on airplane mode

In some places, such as on an airplane or in a hospital, you need to turn off all the connections on your BlackBerry device.

Airplane mode lets you quickly turn off your connections and, when you're done using airplane mode, turning off airplane mode restores the connections that were previously turned on.

Mobile network

A mobile network connection allows your BlackBerry device to make calls and, if you have a data plan, use data services such as Internet browsing. In some locations, such as in a hospital or on an airplane, you might need to turn off your mobile network connection, but usually you can just leave your mobile network connection turned on.

In most cases your device automatically connects to the appropriate wireless network when you travel outside of your wireless service provider's coverage area. If you're not sure if your device is set up for roaming, or what roaming fees will apply, it's a good idea to check with your wireless service provider before you travel.

Troubleshooting: Wi-Fi

I can't connect to a Wi-Fi network

Start by checking for these basic issues:

• Check that you turned on the connection to the Wi-Fi network. On the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen. Verify that the Wi-Fi icon appears blue.

• Check that you're in a Wi-Fi coverage area. If you're connecting to a home network, see if other wireless devices are able to connect. If other devices can't connect you might need to reset your router. If you're connecting to a work Wi-Fi network or a hotspot, talk to your administrator or an employee at the hotspot.

• Your connection might have timed out. Try connecting again.

• If the Wi-Fi network that you want doesn't appear on the Wi-Fi settings screen, it might be hidden. If you know the network name, try connecting to the Wi-Fi network manually.

• Check that Mobile Hotspot mode is off. If Mobile Hotspot mode is on, your device can't connect to a Wi-Fi network.

If none of the suggestions above solve your connection issue, try these more advanced troubleshooting options:

• Check that the time on your BlackBerry device is synchronized with the network time. If the times are different, it could prevent your device from connecting (for example, if connecting to the network requires you to have a certificate on your device, and the certificate has an expiration date).

• If you switched Wi-Fi networks manually, try switching to another Wi-Fi network.

• If your email account is a work account, your device might prevent connections to certain wireless access points. For more information, contact your administrator.

Still not connected? OK, try the following:

• Check that the settings for the Wi-Fi network are correct. To find out which settings to use, for a home network, refer to the information that came with your router; for a work Wi-Fi network, talk to your administrator; for a public hotspot, refer to any information provided for the hotspot or talk to an employee at the hotspot who might have details about how to connect.

• If you use the Press WPS button on Router setting in Wi-Fi Protected Setup, check that the Wi-Fi router uses Wi-Fi

Protected Setup, and that it is set to send its profile. Verify that another device is not also attempting to connect at the same time, and that not more than one Wi-Fi router within range is set to send its profile. For more information, see the information that came with your router.

• If you use PEAP, EAP-TLS, EAP-FAST, or EAP-TTLS to connect to a Wi-Fi network, check that you installed the root certificate for the certificate authority server that created the certificate for the authentication server. The root certificate must be installed on your device before you can connect to the network. For more information, talk to your administrator.

156

User Guide Settings

• If you use EAP-TLS to connect to a Wi-Fi network, check that you installed your authentication certificate on your device. The authentication certificate must be installed on your device before you can connect to the network. For more information, talk to your administrator.

• If you need to contact a support representative, you can access diagnostic information by tapping

on the Wi-Fi settings screen. To copy the log information to send to your support representative, in the Diagnostic Information dropdown list, tap Logs. Tap Copy Logs.

Keyboard input methods

An input method enables you to type words or characters that are not available using the characters on your keyboard layout. In some cases, input methods give you a phonetic approximation of a word based on the keyboard layout you are using. Your device can then suggest a character or diacritic based on the sound you choose.

In other cases, input methods provide you with gestures and key combinations for languages. Some keyboard input methods are common to all supported languages, such as word prediction or selecting accented characters by pressing and holding keys.

Typing in other languages

You can set your BlackBerry device to recognize three different input languages when you type. As you type, your device makes predictions based on each of the language families. For example, if you use a Latin-based display language, predictions appear for any of the configured Latin-based languages. Similarly, if your display language is Korean, it will not display Arabic or Latin-based suggestions. When you set more than one typing language, you may need to consider the following:

• Some languages, such as Thai and Arabic, have more characters in the alphabet than there are keys on the keyboard.

You need to use a keystroke combination to access the second or third character on a particular key. For information about how to access these types of characters, see the help for typing in that language.

• Different languages may have different keyboard layouts. For example, American English uses a QWERTY keyboard layout, but French uses an AZERTY keyboard layout. Some keys appear in locations that you may not be used to.

180

User Guide Settings

• Similar languages may have slightly different keyboard layouts. For example, many languages use a QWERTY keyboard layout. However, Danish, Spanish, and Romanian include different characters on the basic keyboard that aren't on other QWERTY keyboard layouts.

• Some supported languages, such as Hebrew, Farsi, and Arabic, read right-to-left. If you change to one of these languages from a left-to-right language in the middle of a sentence, your device automatically places the characters you type on the left side of the cursor. When you change back to the left-to-right language, you need to move your cursor back to the right side of the text.

Typing in Arabic or Farsi

The Arabic and Farsi keyboard layouts support the following features:

• The Arabic language has more characters in the alphabet than there are keys on the keyboard. As a result, more than one native character appears on one key. There may be alternate letters that are related to a primary letter or have a similar form. You can use the keyboard mapping guide that appears with the typing task to determine how to press and hold a letter or multi-press to access the second and third characters on each key.

• The Farsi language has a few characters that are different from the basic Arabic alphabet. These characters are listed on the keyboard mapping guide.

• Word prediction and flicking word suggestions up onto the screen (if you have this feature turned on)

• You can type alternate characters in two ways. You can press and press a letter. A second method is to press and hold the primary character. Then, select the alternate character from the options.

• The Arabic language has many diacritics that you can add to characters. To add a diacritic, press the diacritic key on the row of touch screen keys above the keyboard. Then, touch the diacritic you want to add.

Typing in Chinese

The Chinese language input methods support the following features:

• You can type using a Latin-based alphabet on a QWERTY keyboard layout by pressing

and then a letter.

Typing in Danish, Norwegian, Finnish, or Swedish

About the compass

The digital compass on your BlackBerry device works like a regular compass, but also includes more features. For example, you can choose whether the compass points to true north or magnetic north. The compass also works in any direction or orientation, including upside down.

Get a compass reading

To get a compass reading, rotate and tilt your BlackBerry device.

The current direction that you're facing appears at the top of the screen.

Point the compass to true north or to magnetic north

You can choose to navigate with your compass using either true north or magnetic north. Magnetic north, which is what a standard compass points to, can be influenced by several factors and isn't constant. True north, or geographical north, is what you would see on a paper map and is constant. If you would prefer to navigate based on true north (for example, if you are using your compass to follow a map) you must turn on GPS.

In the compass app, do one of the following:

• To navigate based on true north, at the bottom of the screen, turn on the switch.

• To navigate based on magnetic north, at the bottom of the screen, turn off the switch.

238

User Guide Applications and features

Troubleshooting: Compass

I'm not getting an accurate reading from the compass

Try the following actions:

• If the compass doesn't point north, move your BlackBerry device away from metal objects, such as magnets or electronics.

• If you have turned on Location Services and are navigating based on true north, you need the GPS receiver to be able to connect to GPS satellites. Try moving outside or near a window in order to establish a GPS connection.

I'm seeing the interference indicator when I try to use the compass

The interference indicator appears on the screen when something is interfering with the compass on your BlackBerry device.

Try the following action:

• Move your device away from metal, then rotate and tilt your device until the indicator disappears.

Have an event coming up? Try making a smart tag that contains the event information, then copying the smart tag to a writeable NFC tag that is attached to a small gift for your guests.

The NFC feature might not be available, depending on your wireless service provider, your administrator's settings, and your BlackBerry device model.

Passwords and locking

There are several types of locks, PINs, and passwords that you can use to help protect your BlackBerry device.

If you use your device for work, your organization might already have security settings in place, such as requiring a password to unlock your device.

BlackBerry ID

A BlackBerry ID is an email address and password that gives you access to BlackBerry websites, apps, and services. If you change your BlackBerry device, a BlackBerry ID helps you to transfer data to your new device. Make sure that you use the same BlackBerry ID for all of your BlackBerry devices.

Log in with your BlackBerry ID to do the following and much more:

• Keep track of your app purchases and payment options from the BlackBerry World storefront.

• Make the most of BBM features, such as backing up and moving BBM contacts to a new BlackBerry device.

• Start and stop BlackBerry Protect.

Password locking and screen locking

While your device is locked, you can still receive notifications of new email and text messages (SMS and MMS), make an emergency phone call, view your battery charge level, set an alarm, or take a picture.

To conserve battery power and avoid accidental key presses, lock the screen. To help to avoid unauthorized use of your device, you need to set a device password.

In your display and security settings, you can set your device to lock itself after a certain amount of inactivity. You can also write a custom message that displays on the locked screen.

If you forget your password, it can't be recovered. BlackBerry recommends that you back up your data regularly. By default, for security reasons your device data is deleted when an incorrect password is entered ten times.

BlackBerry Balance and the work space password

If you associate your device with your organization's network, your administrator might turn on BlackBerry Balance technology. BlackBerry Balance is designed to separate and secure areas of your device as work-only or personal-only.

273

User Guide Security and backup

Your administrator may require you to set a work space password to protect files, apps, and data associated with your organization, such as your work email account. Your administrator sets rules to control whether you can use the same password for both your work space and device.

If you enter your work space password more than the allowed number of times, your work space and the contents within it are deleted. You can reduce or increase the number of allowed work password attempts in your BlackBerry Balance settings.

Note: Your administrator might not permit you to change some password lock options for your work space, such as the password requirement, the timeout duration, and using the same password for your work space and your device.

Network lock and unlock code

To use a SIM card from another service provider, for example, if you’re traveling and want to use a local service provider’s network, you can request unlock codes (MEP codes) from your current service provider, and change the Phone Network

Lock settings for your SIM card.

If you exceed the number of allowed attempts to enter an unlock code, your SIM card will allow emergency calls only. For assistance, you can contact your service provider.

SIM card PINs

You can set two different PINs for the SIM card in your device. You can use a SIM card PIN to help to prevent unauthorized use of your SIM card in another device. For example, if you lose your SIM card and someone tries to use it in another device, the SIM card can't be used unless the PIN is entered correctly. If you exceed the number of allowed attempts to enter the SIM card PIN, your SIM card will stop functioning. To unblock your SIM card, contact your wireless service provider for a PUK code.

A SIM card PIN2 is designed to enable certain phone features like fixed dialing.

To get a SIM card PIN, contact your service provider and turn on SIM card security in your security settings.

Tip: A quick tap on the Power/Lock key will put your device to sleep. This should help you conserve battery power.

Troubleshooting: BlackBerry Protect

I can't turn on BlackBerry Protect

If your BlackBerry device is associated with an Enterprise Mobility Management solution from BlackBerry, this feature might be turned off by your administrator. To learn about how your device can be protected against loss or theft, contact your administrator.

Security settings

You can set and change the security settings for applications on your BlackBerry device, and set up parental controls to restrict or limit access to features and content. You can use a smart card, and import certificates from your computer to increase the security of data on your device. And if you need to permanently delete all data from your device, you can wipe it.

Setting security permissions for apps

BlackBerry 10 OS includes application permissions that are designed to let you control the information and features that an application can access on your BlackBerry device. For example, you can control whether an app can access your email, contacts, pictures, or the location of your device. Keep in mind that some applications require specific permissions to work.

You can also help safeguard your device by downloading apps only from trusted sources, such as the BlackBerry World storefront.

When you open an app for the first time, your device might display a list of the files and features that the app wants to access. If something doesn't seem right to you, you can reject the app's request to access an item. For example, you might download a game that requests access to your messages, which might make sense if the game includes a feature to share your game score. However, if you aren't comfortable with the game having the ability to compose and view your email messages, you can turn off access to messages or delete the app. You can view or change permissions for most apps in your device settings.

For some apps, when you install the app, you are prompted to accept or decline all of the requested permissions. If you decline, the prompt will appear again the first time you open the app. You can't change the application permissions later unless you delete and reinstall the app.

Change or view app permissions

For some apps, if you turn off permissions, the app might not work as you expect. If an app isn’t working as you expect it to, consider turning on some or all of the app permissions.

Parental Controls settings are protected with a password, making them difficult to change or turn off without your knowledge. You can set your device so that the Parental Controls password is required to add an email or social networking account, or to purchase an app from the BlackBerry World storefront.

Note: If BlackBerry Balance technology is turned on, the Parental Controls feature is not available.

About smart cards

You can use a smart card and the password for your BlackBerry device or work space to unlock your device. You can use smart card certificates to send S/MIME-protected messages.

Smart cards store certificates and private keys. You can import certificates from a smart card to your device by using an external smart card reader or a microSD smart card. Private key operations such as signing and decryption use the smart card. Public key operations such as verification and encryption use the public certificates on your device.

Use two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication lets you use a smart card and the password for your BlackBerry device or work space to unlock your device.

The Smart Password Entry feature is designed to make it easier for you to enter your passwords on your device. Your device can remember the format of the password you type in a password field and, if your password is numeric, the device will automatically set the number lock so that you don't have to press the Alt key to enter your password. Also, if the password for your device or work space and the password for your smart card are the same, your device can enter the password for your smart card when you type the password for your device or work space.

On the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen.
