BB Bold 9650 :: Way To Monitor Which Apps Are Running?

Jul 2, 2010

Bold 9650- Verizon First time Blackberry user Is there a way to monitor which apps are running? I'll launch an app, think that I closed out of it and when I return to it, it appears that it was never closed. This would eat up some serious battery life if I have numerous apps running in the background. Please let me know your opinions.

BB Bold 9650 :: Running Slow - Compose An Email Results In An Hourglass

Jun 21, 2010

To add to my complaints for the Blackberry 9650 (internet browser problems, forced to use Bing, 5 minute boot-up time), the blackberry runs very very slow. Constant hour glasses. Compose an email results in an hourglass (not all of the time,

Feels like Blackberry is turning more into Microsoft than apple. Instead of quality improvements, we get more powerful hardware that runs slower with unpredictable feature availability and an eye for $ for sake of purely $. FWIW, I upgraded to 9650 from the original Bold with AT&T in late 2008. I am nervous about how slow the 9650 will be in 2 years if its this slow out of the gate.

BB (RIM) :: Bold 9700 Apps In Background Running

Jun 18, 2010

You know how when you open an application, and just press the hangup / power key, it exits the application from the screen but it still keeps running in the background memory. I have noticed that such applications in the memory can drain the battery real quick. I was wondering if anyway on the phone you can check which applications are currently running in the background memory? If i can find that out, I can just exit all the apps and save my battery life. Let me know if anyone knows a way to do so.

BB Bold :: 9900 Camera Not Working Because Too Many Apps Running

Jan 4, 2012

I am on my 3rd Blackberry, currently on the new Bold 9900. It developed this camera fault that seems to be an issue throughout the Blackberry series. Yep the "camera not working because there are to many apps running" problem......except there are no apps running, this is clearly a hardware issue.

BB Bold 9650 :: What Cool Apps Should Install

Jul 22, 2010

I am new to the BlackBerry world, since I just bought my first BlackBerry ever, a Sprint-branded Bold 9650 and, so far, I really like it, although, to be honest, the platform seems quite dated (it reminds me of Symbian S60 and, specifically, my Nokia E61i a lot!). I can't wait for BlackBerry 6 to be out! I plan to either upgrade my 9650 or get the upcoming 9800, which I have been salivating about since the early leaks.

I come from webOS (Palm Pre), iOS (2G, 3G & 3GS) and Android (G1, myTouch 3G, EVO 4G) and have had tonds of cell phones (29 in 14 years, to be exact LOL), but never a BlackBerry, for some reason, even though they have always intrigued me. Therefore, I have a bunch of questions, even after playing with the phone for many hours (I just got it last night and have been on it all day). Here are some of those questions and I'd appreciate it if you guys took the time to answer any of them. I numbered them for easier reference. Just please try not to quote my entire text, cause I know it's a lot and it would just clutter the thread.I considered posting in the Bold forum, but realized these questions apply to all of the latest BlackBerry devices, so I decided to post here instead. I will most likely have more questions soon, but here it goes.


(1) What cool apps should I install? I do favor free apps (hardly ever use paid apps) and I'm big on almost anything that's "connected", like social networking (no need to mention the usual suspects like the Facebook and Twitter apps, of course), care little or nothing for PIM apps on my phone (calendars, tasks, etc.) and multimedia apps aren't my strong suit either (especially on such a small screen). However, almost anything that involves other people will catch my attention. Plus useful tools, alternative launchers, setting tweaking apps and the like. And photography and photo processing apps.

(2) Are my apps installing to the SD card? You aren't prompted and I haven't found a setting for this, so I assume they are, but wanted to confirm.
UPDATE: Already answered fully.

(3) Are there any [good] third party task managers? Specifically, any that allows you kill/close apps from the actual manager as opposed to having to switch to the app and close it from its menu?

(4) Other that BlackBerry App World, are there any other good sources of good third-party apps, themes, wallpapers?

(5) When I set up my Gmail e-mail account, the wizard asked me if I wanted to keep my Google contacts and calendar synced. I did, so I accepted. However, I figured Google Sync would do this, so I downloaded it ( and it says it's doing the same syncronization. Is this overkill? Are they both doing the same thing? What is it most Gmail users do in this case? What makes the most sense, is more reliable, less resource consuming, etc.?

UPDATE: Already answered fully.
(6) One of my biggest complaints with Android is within the Gmail app. When you reply to a message, you can choose to include or exclude the original text. Fine. But what I really like to do is EDIT this text. Why I do is irrelevant, but here goes. I hate huge e-mail threads, so what I like to do is edit this original text and only leave the message I'm replying to and delete everything under it. Both iOS and webOS let you do this. Android doesn't, but I figured the king of e-mail would have this flexibility. I haven't found a way. :
UPDATE: Already answered fully.

(7) Is there a way to rename the system folders in the app launcher (or whatever this is called), for example "Social Networking" and "Instant Messaging"? Hiding these and creating new ones with the name I want would be a workaround, but I couldn't pick the same icons, since those aren't available.

(8) Are the hybrid ROMs I see in different forums frowned upon by RIM? Palm, for example, has been extremely friendly with the webOS homebrew community, incorporate many of the homebrew apps in the official App Catalog and even some homebrew patches in more recent O/S updates. Are these ROMs stable for the most part? Relatively safe, meaning you can usually "undo" them if something goes wrong? I miss the xda ROMs for Android devices and the hundreds of extremlly useful patches on webOS, which really modify the entire behavior of the O/S.

(9) I feel RIM will make a BB6 upgrade available for the the Bold 9650, since the device was recently released. Would you agree? I saw they recently teased on Twitter about a list of upgradeable devices, but I don't think they have released this yet.
UPDATE: Already answered, plus this is speculation.

(10) Is there a way (keyboard shortcut, third party app) to take a screenshot? From my searches, it seems there's nothing native, but applications like ZonaSnap, CaptureIt and QuickLaunch should do the trick. Is there concensus as in which one is the best? UPDATE: I gave ZonaSnap a try and like it, but could use the feedback. All phones should come with a native keyboard shortcut for screenshots. iOS does, webOS does, Android doesn't.

(11) I assume both voice and data would work on an unlocked 9650 with either a T-Mobile or AT&T SIM card. Now, will data be 3G on AT&T or would it be only EDGE? The 9650 has only one WCDMA band (2100), whereas the AT&T Bold 9000 uses 850, 1900 and 2100.

BB Bold 9650 :: App World Keeps Displaying My UNinstalled Apps

Sep 14, 2010

Here's all the info. you'll need to know to help me with this issue.Blackberry Bold 9650


BlackBerry App World

Carrier: U.S. Cellular

The issue is when I click BlackBerry App World... then I click My World..It lists all of the applications I have installed... but for some reason it's listing all of the applications I have UNinstalled also....

I have tried to resolve this issue with a technician.My phone was getting an uncaught exception 6 or whatever upon startup.The technician had me do hard resets on my blackberry... that didn't help.He then had me install the desktop manager program, and I went to the spot where it lists all the apps installed on my blackberry.... he had me uninstall all of my apps.

So that took forever to do, then my phone restarted and my apps were gone... he then had me go to the us cellular website and download a file named "9650_512AMEA_PBr5.0.0_rel1367_PL4.2.0.363_A5.0.0.810_U.S._Cellular_.exe

Which is supposed to redo the stuff on my blackberry... so we ran that file, it removed stuff, then redid all the stuff that originally came with my blackberry.... but yet when I do a hard reset, soft reset, or uninstall all my apps, and run the "9650_512AMEA_PBr5.0.0_rel1367_PL4.2.0.363_A5.0.0.810_U.S._Cellular_.exe"
BlackBerry App World is still displaying my UNinstalled apps.... why is it doing this, and how do I make it stop?

BB Bold 9650 :: 9650 - How To Save SMS Text To Draft?

Jul 8, 2010

I purchased the 9650 bold a few weeks ago. I do not do a lot of texting, but when I do, the texts are pretty long. On my old BB I hit the back arrow key and it saved to draft, (i would often have 4-5 texts in draft before I sent all out) If im not mistaken you cant do this on the new 9650?? Do I need to get an application to assist with this? ANy suggestions? Sorry if this is a rookie question but...Im a rookie when it comes to these phones.

BB Bold 9650 :: 9650 Memory Card Problem

Jun 21, 2010

When I upgraded my 9630 to my new bold 9650 I had a 16gb micro sd card in the 9630. I copied all of the files from my card to my computer, put the 16gb card in my 9650 and formatted the card. I then copied all of the files from my computer back to the sd card and put the card back in the 9650. All seems to be ok, I have my pictures etc. When I go to connect my BB 9650 to my computer I get a message on the BB that says: "Content rights do not match this device. Please insert the media card back to the right device." this only happens if I have the memory option set to "Auto enable mass storage mode storage set to NO" Any ideas?
Thank You

BB Bold 9650 :: 9650 And Vibrate In Holster Setting

Is anyone else having trouble using the "Vibrate in Holster" setting? My 8330 would automatically switch to vibrate when I put it in my holster that has the magnetic closure. My 9650 fits in the same holster but doesn't seem to switch to vibrate even though I have that setting chosen under my sounds profiles.

Jul 11, 2010

Anyone else have this problem? I usually sleep with my Bold in bed with me (who doesn't) lol, and have been waken up many times to a sizzling hot phone. like burning up hot. I put it on the nightstand and seems to cool down. but I always slept with my tour laying next to me in bed, and it never got that hot.

Also i realize this may have been posted before, but i am more looking for 9650 specific threads. and more charging specific threads as well.

BB Bold 9650 :: Is Keyboard On 9650 Same As 9630?

Is the keyboard on the 9650 exactly the same as the 9630? Or is it the same as the keyboard on the 9700? The keyboard on the 9700 is much nicer in my opinion to that of the 9630 as its a little wider it seems and keys seem a touch bigger.

BB Bold 9650 :: Bold 9650 Vs Curve 8530?

Jul 12, 2010

Since my contract is up on Sunday (for me and my mom anyways, my dads isn't until october, so they are making us pay the early termination fee or go without a phone for 3 months, oh and this is Verizon i'm talking about, but you probably could've guessed that) and I am thinking about either getting a bold 9650 or curve 8530 for Sprint, since Verizon makes you add $30 onto each blackberry(crooks). But I was looking at the features and I would like the Bold but for some reason the cheapest I can find it is $99, while the Bold for Verizon I can find for free. My question is, is the Bold a lot better, enough to spend 100 dollars instead of 50? and why is it that I can find the Verizon bold for free but not for Sprint?

Jun 28, 2010

I searched but could not find an answer so I apologize if this has been brought up before.I was one of the fortunate group that was able to exchange a defective tour for a brand new in box bold. I was going through the device switch wizard today when I happened to be holding both devices side by side. I noticed that the screen on the bold is significantly more yellow than that of the tour. I have not noticed this issue discussed previously.Do I have a defective unit or is this the standard bold screen? Thanks for any input/info you can give. Sorry for the poor pic below (taken from wife's 8900). Bold on left, tour on right.
