New in BlackBerry 7

BlackBerry 7 includes a number of exciting new features and services, as well as some enhancements to existing features.

BlackBerry ID

A BlackBerry ID is an email and password that you create that gives you convenient access to BlackBerry products and services.

After you create your BlackBerry ID, you can log in to any BlackBerry product that supports BlackBerry ID. For example, with

BlackBerry ID you can manage apps that you downloaded from the BlackBerry App World storefront and keep apps you

downloaded when you switch smartphones. For more information, see About the BlackBerry ID , 7.

Voice enabled search

Looking for something? You can now use your voice to search for help, contacts, documents, pictures, videos, and more on your BlackBerry smartphone and on the Internet. For more information, see

Search for an item using voice enabled search ,

When you tap the NFC smart tag reader of your smartphone against a smart tag, you can see information such as web addresses, coupons, graphics, media files, and event details. For more information, see

NFC technology , 256.

Touch-free call answering

You don't need to use your hands to answer calls when you use a Bluetooth enabled headset or a wired headset! Now you can set your smartphone to answer calls automatically after 5 seconds. For more information, see

Change how you answer calls with a headset , 64.

Bluetooth enhancements

You can now send multiple pictures at once using Bluetooth technology. For more information, see

You can now view pictures in a slide show using transitions such a sliding, zooming, and panning. For more information, see

Change your slide show options , 149.

About the BlackBerry ID

A BlackBerry ID gives you convenient access to multiple BlackBerry products and services. After you create a BlackBerry ID, you can use a single email address and password to log in to any BlackBerry product that supports BlackBerry ID. With BlackBerry

ID, you can manage apps that you downloaded from the BlackBerry App World storefront and keep apps you downloaded when you switch smartphones.

When you set up your BlackBerry smartphone, you might be required to create a BlackBerry ID. You can also create a

BlackBerry ID from within an app that uses BlackBerry ID, or by visiting www.blackberry.com/blackberryid .

Some services and apps that support BlackBerry ID require you to re-enter your login information after a certain amount of time has passed if you are not actively using the app. You might also be required to re-enter your BlackBerry ID login information if you change any of your BlackBerry ID information, if you delete all the data on your smartphone, or if you update your BlackBerry Device Software on your smartphone.

Emergency calls

About emergency calls and Emergency Callback Mode

If you're outside of a wireless coverage area and the indicator appears at the top of the screen, you can call only emergency numbers. Your BlackBerry smartphone is designed to allow emergency calls even when your smartphone is locked.

Depending on your smartphone model and the wireless network that your smartphone is connected to, your smartphone is also designed to allow emergency calls when the SIM card isn't inserted. If the connection to the wireless network is turned off when you initiate an emergency call, your smartphone 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 smartphone 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 smartphone is connected to a CDMA network, when you end an emergency call, your smartphone 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 can't send and receive messages or browse webpages.

If your smartphone supports GPS and you make an emergency call, an emergency operator might be able to use GPS technology to find your approximate location.

Conference calls

About conference calls

You can create two types of conference calls with your BlackBerry smartphone. If your organization or a conferencing service has provided you with a conference call bridge number, you can create conference call meetings in the calendar on your smartphone or computer. Conference call meetings allow participants who have a BlackBerry smartphone to enter the conference call meeting with a one-touch Join Now option, if this feature is supported on their smartphone, so that they don't have to dial the conference call bridge number and access codes. If you don't 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 and reconciliation

The wireless data synchronization feature is designed to synchronize organizer data (contacts, calendar entries, tasks, and memos) between your BlackBerry smartphone and the email application on your computer over the wireless network.

The wireless email reconciliation feature is designed to reconcile email between your smartphone and the email application on your computer over the wireless network. When you file or delete email messages on your smartphone, these email messages should be filed or deleted in the email application on your computer. Likewise, any changes that you make to email messages in the email application on your computer should be reflected on your smartphone.

In rare cases, if your smartphone doesn't recognize fields in a contact, calendar entry, or email account, some data or email can't be synchronized or reconciled.

If wireless data synchronization isn't available on your smartphone or if you turned off this feature, you can use the BlackBerry

Desktop Software to synchronize your organizer data. 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 a current backup file on your computer might allow you to recover smartphone data if your smartphone is lost, stolen, or corrupted by an unforeseen issue.

3. If the Message Services field appears, set this field to the appropriate email account.

About synchronization conflicts

A synchronization conflict occurs when you change the same email or organizer data item on your BlackBerry smartphone and in the email application on your computer.

If you reconcile your email using wireless email reconciliation, on your smartphone, you can set whether the email on your smartphone 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 smartphone when a data synchronization conflict occurs.

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 smartphones 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.

To perform this task, your BlackBerry smartphone 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.

1. On the Home screen or in a folder, click the Options icon.

2. Click Device > Advanced System Settings > Cell Broadcasting.

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 smartphone. 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 hasn't been changed.

Encryption is designed to keep messages confidential. When you encrypt a message, your smartphone 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 smartphone 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 and PIN messages.

1. When you are composing a message, change the Encoding field.

Change the default signing and encryption option

Your BlackBerry smartphone is designed to use the default signing and encryption option when you send a message to a contact that you haven't previously sent a message to or received a message from. Otherwise, your smartphone uses the message history to suggest a signing and encryption option.

You can set your smartphone to try to use the default signing and encryption option for your outgoing messages instead.

However, if message classifications are turned on, the default signing and encryption option might not be able to be used depending on the security requirements of a message's classification. For example, if your default signing and encryption option is set to Sign and you compose a reply to a message that is classified as confidential, the signing and encryption option is set to Sign and Encrypt instead of the default signing and encryption option.

1. On the home screen or in a folder, click the Options icon.

About message classifications

If your BlackBerry smartphone 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.

Change the default message classification

To perform this task, your work email account must use a BlackBerry Enterprise Server that supports this feature and your administrator must turn on message classifications.

Your BlackBerry smartphone is designed to use the default message classification when you send a message to a contact that you haven't sent a message to or received a message from previously. If you have sent a message to or received a message from the contact previously, your smartphone tries to use the message classification that was used for the last message.

Troubleshooting: Camera

Some features aren't available on my smartphone

The availability of certain features on your BlackBerry smartphone might be affected by items such as your smartphone model and wireless service plan.

Depending on your messaging service plan, some features or options might not be available in the message options on the

Email Preferences screen.

If your email account uses a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, your organization might not have set up some features or might prevent you from using some features or options. If your administrator has set an option for you, a lock indicator appears beside the option field.

For more information about the features that are available on your smartphone, contact your wireless service provider or administrator, or visit www.blackberry.com/go/devices .

The flash or video light dims or turns off

If the camera has a flash or the video light is turned on, and 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 or video light 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, an exclamation point indicator appears at the bottom of the screen.

Depending on your BlackBerry smartphone model, you might be able to decrease the blurriness in pictures that is caused by slight movements of the camera by turning on image stabilization in the camera options.

I can't save media files

Your BlackBerry smartphone or media card might not have enough available storage space to store media files.

Try the following actions:

• If you're trying to save a media file to your smartphone, delete old data or messages from your smartphone.

• If you're trying to save a media file on your media card, delete old media files.

• In the camera options, verify that the Image Size field isn't set to Large. Large pictures use more storage space than smaller pictures.

• In the video camera options, verify that the Video Format field is set to a smaller format. Large videos use more storage space than smaller videos.

About ring tones, sounds, and alerts

The profile that you select in the Sound and Alert Profiles application defines how your BlackBerry smartphone alerts you of phone calls, messages, reminders, and browser content.

Your smartphone has a Normal profile and five other preloaded profiles: Loud, Medium, Vibrate Only, Silent, and Phone Calls

Only. 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 don't 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.

Change your ring tone, notifiers, reminders, or alerts

In any sound profile, you can change your ring tone or notifier tone to an audio file that's stored in your BlackBerry smartphone's built-in media storage or media card. You can also change the options for volume, notifications during calls, LED, and vibration in all of the profiles. The All Alerts Off profile can't be changed.

1. On the home screen, click your Sound and Alert Profiles icon.

About browser push

Browser push is designed to push information from a web application to your BlackBerry smartphone as the information becomes available. For example, you can receive updates for weather reports, stock quotes, or breaking news. When your smartphone receives an update, a new browser push message might appear in the messages application or an icon on the

Home screen might change to indicate that new information is available. The web application might also push updated information to your browser cache without notifying you. If information is pushed to your browser cache, the information is available on your smartphone even when your smartphone is not connected to the wireless network. Web applications that use browser push automatically push updates to your smartphone, unless you turn off browser push.

Your smartphone supports different types of browser push messages. Service loading messages and service indication messages include updated information. Other browser push messages include messages that appear in your browser cache.

About synchronization and reconciliation

The wireless data synchronization feature is designed to synchronize organizer data (contacts, calendar entries, tasks, and memos) between your BlackBerry smartphone and the email application on your computer over the wireless network.

The wireless email reconciliation feature is designed to reconcile email between your smartphone and the email application on your computer over the wireless network. When you file or delete email messages on your smartphone, these email messages should be filed or deleted in the email application on your computer. Likewise, any changes that you make to email messages in the email application on your computer should be reflected on your smartphone.

In rare cases, if your smartphone doesn't recognize fields in a contact, calendar entry, or email account, some data or email can't be synchronized or reconciled.

If wireless data synchronization isn't available on your smartphone or if you turned off this feature, you can use the BlackBerry

Desktop Software to synchronize your organizer data. 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 a current backup file on your computer might allow you to recover smartphone data if your smartphone is lost, stolen, or corrupted by an unforeseen issue.

About backing up and restoring smartphone data

If you have installed the BlackBerry Desktop Software on your computer, you can back up and restore most of your BlackBerry smartphone data, including messages, organizer data, fonts, saved searches, and browser bookmarks using the BlackBerry

Desktop Software. For more information, see the Help in the BlackBerry Desktop Software.

If you haven't saved anything on your media card, you can back up and restore most of your smartphone data using your media card.

If your email account uses a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, you might be able to restore synchronized organizer data to your smartphone 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.

About synchronization conflicts

A synchronization conflict occurs when you change the same email or organizer data item on your BlackBerry smartphone and in the email application on your computer.

If you reconcile your email using wireless email reconciliation, on your smartphone, you can set whether the email on your smartphone 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 smartphone when a data synchronization conflict occurs.

Synchronizing contacts

About synchronization and reconciliation

The wireless data synchronization feature is designed to synchronize organizer data (contacts, calendar entries, tasks, and memos) between your BlackBerry smartphone and the email application on your computer over the wireless network.

The wireless email reconciliation feature is designed to reconcile email between your smartphone and the email application on your computer over the wireless network. When you file or delete email messages on your smartphone, these email messages should be filed or deleted in the email application on your computer. Likewise, any changes that you make to email messages in the email application on your computer should be reflected on your smartphone.

In rare cases, if your smartphone doesn't recognize fields in a contact, calendar entry, or email account, some data or email can't be synchronized or reconciled.

If wireless data synchronization isn't available on your smartphone or if you turned off this feature, you can use the BlackBerry

Desktop Software to synchronize your organizer data. 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 a current backup file on your computer might allow you to recover smartphone data if your smartphone is lost, stolen, or corrupted by an unforeseen issue.

A synchronization conflict occurs when you change the same email or organizer data item on your BlackBerry smartphone and in the email application on your computer.

If you reconcile your email using wireless email reconciliation, on your smartphone, you can set whether the email on your smartphone 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 smartphone when a data synchronization conflict occurs.

About roaming and international roaming

In most cases, your BlackBerry smartphone automatically connects to the appropriate wireless network when you travel outside your wireless service provider's coverage area. Sometimes you might have to provide login information before you can access a wireless network. When you roam, a triangular roaming indicator appears at the top of the Home screen.

If your smartphone requires a SIM card, your wireless service provider might need to set up your SIM card with roaming services before you can roam.

If your smartphone normally connects to a CDMA network and your smartphone supports international roaming, you might need to get a SIM card that is set up for international roaming from your wireless service provider. Your phone number stays the same when you travel internationally.

For more information about roaming and roaming fees, contact your wireless service provider.

About connecting to a Wi-Fi network

With Wi-Fi technology, your BlackBerry smartphone can access the Internet by connecting to a wireless router or wireless access point at your home, work, or in a hotspot area. Your smartphone uses the Wi-Fi network instead of the mobile network to visit webpages, 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 smartphone that allows you to log in to a hotspot. If you do not have an application on your smartphone, 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 smartphone saves the connection information so that the next time that you are within range of that network, your smartphone 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 Wi-Fi Network.

Depending on your BlackBerry smartphone model, the Wi-Fi feature might not be supported.

Try the following actions:

• Verify that you turned on the connection to the Wi-Fi network.

• Verify 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 you're connecting to an enterprise Wi-Fi network or a hotspot, talk to your administrator or an employee at the hotspot.

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

245

User Guide Manage Connections

• If the Wi-Fi network doesn't appear in the Set Up Wi-Fi application, it might be hidden. If you know the network name, try connecting to the Wi-Fi network manually.

• In the Set Up Wi-Fi application, verify that the options for the Wi-Fi network are correct. To find out what options to use, for a home network, refer to the information that came with your router; for an enterprise 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 switched Wi-Fi networks manually, switch to another Wi-Fi network or set your smartphone to scan for available Wi-

Fi networks.

• If your wireless service provider supports Wi-Fi calling, verify that your connection preference isn't set to Mobile Network

Only.

• If your email account uses a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, your smartphone might prevent you from connecting to certain wireless access points. For more information, contact your administrator.

• If you're using the Push Button Setup method, verify that the access point is enabled with Wi-Fi Protected Setup, and that it has been set to send its profile. Verify that another device isn't also attempting to connect at the same time, and that not more than one access point within range is in this mode. For more information, see the information that came with your router.

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

• If you use EAP-TLS to connect to a Wi-Fi network, verify that you added your authentication certificate to your smartphone. The certificate must be transferred to your smartphone before you can connect to the network. For more information, talk to your administrator.

About Bluetooth

Bluetooth technology is designed to establish a wireless connection between your BlackBerry smartphone and a Bluetooth enabled device, such as a hands-free car kit or a wireless headset.

Before you can connect your BlackBerry smartphone 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 pair the devices, you can connect the devices when the Bluetooth enabled device is within range of your BlackBerry smartphone (a typical range is approximately 10 meters). For best results, keep your BlackBerry smartphone within direct line of sight of the Bluetooth enabled device. For example, if your BlackBerry smartphone 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 smartphone to another Bluetooth enabled device, Bluetooth status indicators appear at the top of the Home screen.

Turn on or turn off Bluetooth technology

If you try to perform an action using Bluetooth technology, you may be prompted to turn on Bluetooth technology. In some cases, such as when using NFC technology, your BlackBerry smartphone will turn on Bluetooth technology automatically.

On the home screen, click the connections area at the top of the screen, or click the Manage Connections icon.

• To turn on Bluetooth technology, select the Bluetooth checkbox.

• To turn off Bluetooth technology, clear the Bluetooth checkbox.

Pair with a Bluetooth enabled device

You must pair your BlackBerry smartphone with a Bluetooth enabled device before you can connect to it. For more information about preparing the Bluetooth enabled device for pairing, see the documentation that came with the Bluetooth enabled device.

About the Smart Accessories application

You can change how your BlackBerry smartphone functions when you connect it to a dock, charger, or charging pod by creating a dock profile to identify the dock or charger in the Smart Accessories application. For example, you might be able to identify a dock as a bedside dock so that when you connect your smartphone, your smartphone's sound profile turns off, and your smartphone's alarm clock turns on.

The first time you connect your BlackBerry smartphone to a dock, charger, or charging pod, you're prompted to set the behavior of your smartphone for each time it connects. If you choose not to set the behaviour of your smartphone you'll be prompted again the next time you connect your smartphone to the dock, charger, or charging pod. If you remove your smartphone from the dock, charger, or charging pod while the configuration screen is displayed on your smartphone, the configuration screen will remain open.

About compression

Compression is designed to reduce the size of your BlackBerry smartphone data while maintaining the integrity of that data.

When compression is turned on, your smartphone can compress your data, including messages, contacts, calendar entries, tasks, and memos. You should keep compression turned on.

If both compression and encryption are turned on, your smartphone compresses smartphone data before encrypting it.

About file encryption

File encryption is designed to protect files that you store on your BlackBerry smartphone and on a media card that can be inserted in your smartphone. You can encrypt the files on your smartphone and on your media card using an encryption key that your smartphone generates, your smartphone password, or both.

If you encrypt the files using an encryption key that your smartphone generates, you can only access the files on your media card when the media card is inserted in your smartphone. If you encrypt the files using your smartphone password, you can access the files on your media card in any smartphone that you insert your media card into, as long as you know the password for the smartphone.

Encryption

About encrypting data on your smartphone

When encryption for data on your BlackBerry smartphone is turned on, your smartphone uses a private key to encrypt data as it is stored on your smartphone, including data that your smartphone receives when it's locked. Your smartphone 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 smartphone is locked, the caller name doesn't 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 smartphone password and also connect your smartphone to your smart card reader.

When you lock your smartphone, an open lock indicator appears at the top of the screen to indicate that your smartphone is in the process of securing your data, which includes deleting a copy of the private key from the temporary smartphone memory.

A lock indicator appears at the top of the screen when your smartphone has deleted the key.

About file encryption

File encryption is designed to protect files that you store on your BlackBerry smartphone and on a media card that can be inserted in your smartphone. You can encrypt the files on your smartphone and on your media card using an encryption key that your smartphone generates, your smartphone password, or both.

If you encrypt the files using an encryption key that your smartphone generates, you can only access the files on your media card when the media card is inserted in your smartphone. If you encrypt the files using your smartphone password, you can access the files on your media card in any smartphone that you insert your media card into, as long as you know the password for the smartphone.

Turn on encryption

To encrypt data on your BlackBerry smartphone, you must set a password for your smartphone.

Depending on the amount of storage space available, you might not be able to encrypt files on your smartphone or on your media card.

You can set encryption to include or exclude your contacts. If you turn on encryption for contacts and you receive a call when your smartphone is locked, the encrypted contact information doesn't appear on the screen.

1. On the home screen or in a folder, click the Options icon.

2. Click Security > Encryption.

3. To encrypt data and files on your smartphone, in the Device Memory section, select the Encrypt checkbox.

Smart cards

About using a smart card with your smartphone

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 smartphone, but you can't 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 smartphone.

If you use a smart card certificate to authenticate with your smartphone, after you connect your smart card reader to your smartphone, your smartphone requests authentication from the smart card each time that you unlock your smartphone.

You can install multiple smart card drivers on your smartphone, 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, you must temporarily turn off two-factor authentication or select a different authentication option.

If the S/MIME Support Package for BlackBerry smartphones is installed on your smartphone, you can use smart card certificates to send S/MIME-protected messages.

Turn on two-factor authentication

To perform this task, you must set a password for your BlackBerry smartphone and have the smart card password that you received with your smart card.

1. On the home screen or in a folder, click the Options icon.

About smart password entry

If you use advanced authentication and your BlackBerry smartphone 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 smartphone is designed to remember the format of a password that you type in a password field. When you type the password again, your smartphone applies a smart password filter to the password field. If the password is numeric, a 123 indicator appears beside the password field and you do not have to press the Alt key to type numbers. If the password is alphanumeric, an ABC indicator appears beside the password field.

To use smart password entry, advanced authentication must be turned on and the correct smart card driver and smart card reader must be installed on your smartphone.

Turn off smart password entry

To perform this task, you must be using a smart card and a password to unlock your BlackBerry® smartphone.
