Man I keep discovering more and more cool little things my Curve 9350/PlayBook can do, and I've been using BlackBerry for a few years now.
So how about a thread where we can just post the thrill and excitement of finding something new that makes you love your BlackBerry even more than you already did. (And if someone posts something that you've known for awhile, don't say so, just share the joy of discovering something new!)(I'm sure I probably didn't need to specify that on THIS forum... :) )
So I'll start. Today I was looking at the calendar on my Curve and noticed I had two occurrences of "staff meeting". I had manually put one in yesterday when they asked if the time would work for me. Then, later in the evening the secretary sent an Outlook invite, which I accepted on my computer.
Now we don't have a BES (in fact I'm the only BB user in a sea of "other fruit" users). I'm not even on an exchange server. I just manually sync my 'Berry with Outlook. It works great, I don't mind doing it.
So I wondered, how on earth did I get two occurences on my phone when I hadn't synced yet?
So I started playing around; I have my work email set as the default for both email and calendar. And apparently, when I accepted that invite, it automatically knew to add it to the calendar on my phone, through the email?
I don't totally understand how it works, I just know that it does. I spent a few minutes sending calendar invites from another email account, and I'm absolutely thrilled with how BlackBerry handles them.
So tthat's my new thing for today...just one more reason I choose to use BlackBerry.
Security. Usability. BlackBerry. Black Sheep and Proud of it.
