    So... I found this uber cool "easter egg" on my blackberry...

    If you go to Options>Status and then type "test" ( I know theres no field just type the word...
    You get a test field for testing everything from the GPS to the trackball...
    even the vibrate and keypad.

    I'm sure some of the higher functioning crackberries here knew this but I found out about it and every collegue I show thinks its the neatest thing EVER.
    Specially if someone says one of these functions dont work. hehe...

    Does anyone else know of this and/or any other special "easter eggs" on the blackberry????
    Jleeblanch, drum and satchit like this.

    I KNOW... how I found this out was yesterday we were SLOOOOw. So I was kickin' it with some other techs and one told me about it then showed me. Me and like 4 or 5 techs all thought it was the best thing ever. I used it as a troubleshooting step a couple times throughout the day. haha... bashed some dreams of gettin replacement phones.

    It works on all BlackBerry models. Try it again.

    QWERTY - TEST
    MultiTap - TESST

    Edit note: Not tested with a 'Slimmed' OS install.

    I can't figure out how to move past the light sensor test on my 9530. Anyone know?

    Thanks for the tip.

    Same problem here. Am i destined to be stuck here forever. Only through button mashing every key was i somehow able to skip the other tests. no luck with the light test

    Click the trackball. It will give you a menu and you can end the test there.

    Maybe cool. Evoked a test of my S2's Headset. So...when I mash and hold the BB button, I can indeed trap to the Home screen. However, the net_rim_....blah, blah task is still running. Could not evoke Virtual KYBD with my left convenience key (where I could type like "end" or what) and so I did the reboot thingy. What is the Vulcan Nerve Pinch to dismiss Test Mode ? Doctor Neutron

    Probably the S2 equivalent to a trackball press. Like click the screen? Either Menu key or ball click seem to work for a *real* BlackBerry with keyboard.
