Re: calendar and holidays

Hi Azzuni and Welcome to the forums!

 

When you miss a call a message appears on your screen telling you that you have missed a call  "view or close

From your call log select options - call logging - checked missed calls. This will put your missed call in the message list.

Then you will also have a red star next to the icon for message list, and it will show the number with a goldphone "X"

meaning you missed the call.

 

Your messages will automatically put a star in the message list.

You can also set messages to ring a tone and flash the LED when you receive them. The LED will flash until you go to messages. This can be setup in Profiles Advanced Select profile Options Edit it will then show you the different categories for ringtones and LED flashes to be associated with each category.

 

As far as holidays on the calendar you can't from the BB that I know of.

 

Here's a link to get you started:

Hope this helps, and let us know if you need more assistance!

Re: calendar and holidays

What do you exactly mean by putting holidays in calendar? You can make a holiday event in your calendar to notify you. Regarding missed call notification Bifocals explained the required measures to be notified for calls, messages, messenger alerts etc. 

 

There is a service called Missed Call Alert which notifies you through SMS whenever you receive a call while your phone is switched off. This need to be implemented by your carrier. Contact your carrier support representative for know details of this.

Hello,

 

it is possible but not directly on your Blackberry. Is your Blackberry linked to another calendar management tool like Microsoft Outlook or Google Calendar ?

  • If it is, for Outlook you have to configure your BIS or BES.
  • For Google Calendar you can install Google Mobile Sync that does just that.

 

Now, you can add holidays to an Outlook Calendar, or to a Google Calendar. First thing is to grab a holiday calendar ICS file. You can find numerous ones on the mozilla.org website :

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/holidays.html

 

  • For Outlook, you have to download the file to your PC and then import the calendar file into Outlook.
  • For Google Calendar, you have to add a new calendar resource, in the options of Google Calendar.

 

Once it's done, you can sync with your Blackberry.
