Bye Bye BlackBerry

I haven’t had a BlackBerry crash in a long time.  That’s because I no longer use my BlackBerry Curve, I am now an Android user.  I own the Droid 4!  There are a lot of great smartphones on the market today but I love the screen size and qwerty keyboard on this droid. The Droid 4 boasts some pretty impressive features, here are a few of my favorites; Motorola DROID 4 4G Mobile Phone - Dark Gray Features Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread operating system Along with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB RAM allows you to stay connected and productive on the go. 8.0MP digital camera Captures stunning photographs. A front-facing 1.3MP webcam lets you video chat with family and friends. Touch-screen display For clear viewing of your text messages, photos and videos. Scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla glass and a water-repellent nanocoating ensure durability. 16GB internal memory Stores phone numbers, photos and videos. microSD card slot supports up to 32GB (media not included). LED edge-lit QWERTY keyboard For easy text messaging and writing. 1080p HDMI mirror mode For enhanced connectivity. 4G LTE speed Offers quick and easy connection speeds. MP3 player Lets you enjoy music on the go. Bluetooth compatibility For wireless communication with a Bluetooth-enabled device. Hands-free speakerphone Lets you talk while driving without using a separate hands-free device. The Droid 4 is a big device.  It is 5″ x 2 7/8″ x 1/2″ and it weighs 6.3 oz.  One big reason it is so heavy is that it has a slide out keyboard, which is a major reason I choose this device.  Touch keyboards are great and I use them...

Blackberry Crash

  If your BlackBerry crashed then you need the BlackBerry Crash Helper!  Get it now for free! Today I tried to install a new app called Social Beat on my Blackberry Tour 9630. Verizon had “conveniently” pushed a link to my device.  I’ve been doing a lot of social networking and the app seemed like it had promise.  I started the install and then set my phone down to work on something else.  When I looked at my phone again it had the white screen with a clock that I am used to seeing when I reboot the device.  New applications frequently require a reboot, so I didn’t think anything was wrong despite the fact that it didn’t require me to approve of the reboot like it normally does.  Within a few minutes the clock was replaced by a new icon and “Reload Software:552”, AKA the Blackberry “blue screen of death”. A battery pull usually solves most issues on the device, but that didn’t work this time.   After a little research I learned that the problem was either that I had run out of memory, or that my current OS was not compatible with the new app.  I found very few posts from people who had successfully resolved the issue.  Most people recommended wiping the device and starting over.  This would not be a big deal if I had been backing up like I know I should.  Unfortunately I have never backed up my Blackberry. When things work the way they should it is so easy to forget to prepare for disaster.  I had tasks, memos, bookmarks, text messages...
