You can connect using a bluetooth enabled fone. Just add your playbook to the fone bluetooth devices and tether. It's fast and simple. It works.

Instead of using a dongle and cable, anyone who already has a 3G dongle can put the SIM card into a mifi like this

Usually the laptop will benefit too, and you can use up to 5 devices typically.

Re: BlackBerry Technical Solution Center Knowledgebase Articles: Blackberry Playbook

I recently bought a small active SPEAKER to be wireless connected by BLUETOOTH.

Everything works fine, music transferred brlllantly BUT - the speaker itself cannot change volume;

volume should be adapted by Playbook.

Can I and if, where can I change volume/loudness at the playbook?

When music is transferred to the speakers the 'normal' volume setting (bar on the bottom) is aut of charge!

I got Wifi-Playbook 64GB, latest Software-Update 2,xx (ans I love it so far).

Ask for help of community! Thanks in advance.

Hi...

Have you tried to change (turn "ON") the "Headphone Audio Boost"?!?

As a "Note": Settings (little gear, upper left corner), Sounds and Notifications...

Good luck!

Re: BlackBerry Technical Solution Center Knowledgebase Articles: Blackberry Playbook

Wow - after your 'upper' Idea, not 'left corner' but in the upper-center II noticed the '- + whipper`', that I never used so far.
It works niceley, as everything on my beloved playbook (I'm so sorry, that BB stopped the playbook-development).
Thanks for that quick help,
have a nice Weekend,
Manfred

Re: BlackBerry Technical Solution Center Knowledgebase Articles: Blackberry Playbook

I'm really glad it worked (and I meant "Right")...

And referring to your statement about "stopping development" of BB-PB... So many BB-PB lovers are disappointed! We shall blame-it on "Financial Vultures"! Even the size was tarnished (7"), soon after so many tablets followed "that" format (pocket size computer, not pocket size phone!). Apple and Microsoft were after BB (Nortel) patents recently, but ONLY  at "Basement Bargain Prices"! We shall see!

Cheers and Good Luck!

Re: BlackBerry Technical Solution Center Knowledgebase Articles: Blackberry Playbook

Hi can you please help.

 

I am trying to switch on my playbook but it won't start. When I switch on the power button, the red light comes up and all seems to be working fine. However after a minute the rebooting stops and the playbook switches off. Can you please help.

Hello "SilvioE"...

This is a sign that your BB Playbook battery needs to be recharged!!!

Recharge for an hour and try again!

Let us know of the outcome!

"Merry Christmas" and "Season Greetings" to all!!!

Cheers,

Re: BlackBerry Technical Solution Center Knowledgebase Articles: Blackberry Playbook

I can understand that BB is struggling to survive and concentrate (Mr. Chan) mainly on Network-Services and (hopefully) safety for commercial (!) customers. Anyhow, BB need also and maybe in forefront not only smatphone-solutions, but also a good, reliable, modern style, capable... Playbook. It's not essential to produce them by themselves, also Foxconn (!) can annd will do. Im am convinced, that for business needs you nee a SET of phone and (!) Playbook.
