Re: Feature Requests for BlackBerry10 OS

I've a list I want to pass to RIM; but adding it here might pass it through. Thanks for the idea.

Apologies for any overlap and it's because I like my BB that I am making these suggestions.

 

Deep breath ...

 

Used to find contacts by typing first couple of letters of fist and surname (John Smith would be found from "Jo Sm".

I now need to write "John Sm" before the name appears. It treats the space as a character instead of a new search.

 

Receiving a call; how to I cancel it quickly? Nice to have a pickup and a "red phone" option. The swipe isn't particularly helpful over a couple of buttons.

 

Changing the date & Time in appointments is done by the rolling numbers bar - far too sensitive. A keyboard option would be great.

Icons straight into spreadsheet or Docs etc. would be good - I need to troll through files to the one I want then open one. (This may be something already there.)

 

A back tab - to move back and forward one character at a time to correct text.  I spend ages trying to tap in just the right spot after a letter to do edits.

 

Can you put notifications (maybe the Hub count) in the banner at the top (next to battery and alarm icons.  The hub works well, but I have to look there to se if anything has been added.

 

I don't know if this is possible.

I pick up emails from a POP SMTP account (I don't really understand this bit!) - which works well.  But, when my PC downloads them (running most of the time) the email appears as read on my handset (I guess because the email has been downloaded from the POP account (thought it is still there, I don't delete them off POP until 7 days later).

This means that new emails appear as read a few minutes after arriving on my mobile - I cannot trust the read / not read status.

 

Alarm - can the dismiss and snooze buttons be different colours  and maybe bigger on the face.  To be easier to see on wake up.

 

The clock and its options are great - but can you make it easier to order the World Clocks.  I add places when family are travelling and it's a bit of a futter to keep the home time at the top.  I end up taking it off and adding it again.

 

Can the Alarm be developed to have more than one set - so it is easy to have different times at w/e than work days.

 

 

That's enough for now!!! 

If someone at RiM is reading these; could you comment so we know we don't need to keep flagging them up?

Re: Feature Requests for BlackBerry10 OS

UKuser55, Thanks! Since this is purely a user support forum it would rare for a RIM BlackBerry staffer to comment. But who knows.

The same thing goes for a large web page -- we need a quick way to go to the top or bottom.

Re: Feature Requests for BlackBerry10 OS

Sounds like all we're asking for is a tick box that says Activesync YES or NO.

Re: Feature Requests for BlackBerry10 OS

raffaelmeier,

If you press and hold on a date in the hub, a context menu will pop up with the option to mark prior read. It's not delete, but it is close to what you are after.

Re: Feature Requests for BlackBerry10 OS

raffaelmeier, this is possible. Just touch on and hold on a date bar separator. The right popup will show an icon for delete all prior & other options.

Re: Feature Requests for BlackBerry10 OS

Ugh. No ActiveSync means no mail/calendar/contacts. So if you don't want to receive mail/etc then I guess that's an option for you. Not for me however...

Mr Sanders!

You're right about the delete. I missed it there in the bottom corner.
