Re: Feature Requests for BlackBerry10 OS

Our Traveler server also has a setting for # of days. Maybe that's where you're getting burned (or Exchange ActiveSync obviously)

Re: Feature Requests for BlackBerry10 OS

You can add an Evernote account in settings. It will then sync with BlackBerry Remember

I know that, but it is not working like it is suppose to, it takes over 1hrs to either get or send to the server, you can not see all the notes, you can use the tags, and apparently you can not use it to store any thing as evernote is use on the Playbook or computer

 

Remember should be renamed to FORGET IT

Re: Feature Requests for BlackBerry10 OS

EAS may be good for enterprise users where IT departments require users to be "working from the server", but for personal use the sync features of EAC are difficult to live with.

 

I regularly delete messages from my phone (to keep it tidy) that I later want to view on my PC at home.

I also occasionally want emails to remain on my phone after downloading them with Outlook on my PC. 

 

EAC seems to be a bit of a misnomer to me - you're not really "syncing" and working off a local copy, you're simply

using your phone to work from the server. 

 

So my feature request is to bring back either BIS or a BIS like feature that allows me to pick and choose what messages I want to keep on my phone.

Re: Feature Requests for BlackBerry10 OS

Application minimizing and closing:

 

Swipe half way up the screen to minimize an application to an active tile. 

Swipe it all the way up the screen to close the application.

 

It's silly having to minimize an application, then tapping the tiny "X" to close it.

Re: Feature Requests for BlackBerry10 OS

Can the keyboard be fined tuned? 

 

I like the predictive text, but when typing fast I miss the opportunity to swipe up on the word I need and often have to deleted a letter and go back. It's also hard to get used to because sometimes the word I need appears above the keys and sometimes on the space bar. It's been over a month and I can't tell where the word I need will show up. 

 

In comparison to the iPhone keyboard, it's not as precise when pressing keys, but faster when typing messages.

 

I think the best solution is to have another keyboard option and I'm suggesting Swype.  I used it on my Android and it proved to be way faster for me than a physical keyboard.  I miss holding my phone with one hand and preparing an entier email with only my thumb.  

 

With the current keyboard, I find that I have to pay too much attention to the keyboard in general and every letter i'm typing as opposed to swyping my thumb around the keyboard and choosing the word I want from the predictive text bar (if required).  Going back to my physical keyboard days with my bold 9700, I could type messages without looking at the keyboard and Swype was the closest thing to that.

You can do this

Go to settings - Language and Input - On-screen Keyboard

Change portrait and landscape modes to "In-column"

That's a bit better, but I would still prefer the option to use a third party keyboard.

Re: Feature Requests for BlackBerry10 OS

What I would like are:

 

  • customisation for different types of messages - LED colour
  • volume lock button button - I am forever pressing it when taking the phone out my pocket and/or holster!
  • a more obvious 'reject call' 
  • multiple alarms
