    Wanted to have a thread where I can find what I can say in BBA and interact. This applies to 10.3.1 BBA.

    Found out yesterday:
    --------------------------------------
    Me:"Directions to Costco"
    BBA: brought up maps and lists all the Costco around me.
    Me:"Second one" [from the list]
    BBA: mapped me there.

    Also if you have Home and Work set in settings: it will also handle those easily.

    --------------------------------------
    Email/TXT/BBM using BBA is pretty good as well.
    "Email or TXT or BBM xxxxxx"
    BBA will try to figure out who you want to email/txt/bbm. will even suggest you do somethign else taht's available.***
    You pick if it ask you to pick like above.
    First/second entry/one
    Then it will ask what you want to say.
    Just start dictating.
    ------------------------------------

    *** I forgot to add my gmail which had all phones numbers for my personal stuff. When i said txt "blah" person", BBA said this person has no phone number attached to her, Do I want to BBM instead.

    Open Assistant. Tap the "I" at bottom right. You'll get whole categories of voice command options.

    And somehow I've managed to freeze it by saying NO when it wanted to give me a map to Costco in the states lol. Any ideas as to how to clear the screen.

    Why is it that BBA doesn't recognize American football scores like NFL and NCAAF? Is it a Canadian thing?

    Seems like it has the NBA, NHL and some soccer league. Must not be implemented yet

    Just as a test, try asking the BBA "Who's your Daddy?"

    Wait for it - BOOM!!

    The people at Blackberry really do have a sense of humor..

    I read this somewhere along - with some other really interesting questions and responses, will try and dig that up and link it here.

    797 is the Software Release (SR), which means you're on Operating System 1154. Nothing for you to update to.......yet.

    Is there a quick launch for the assistant? It has popped up on me a few times, but I am not sure exactly how I am making that happen. On a z30.

    Hit the search icon (magnifying glass) on home screen.

    Holding the Play/Pause button on the side will launch it (if you have it turned on in the settings). My case sometimes turns it on by accident on my Z30.

    I asked it (her) what day it was and she had to do an internet search! Bing came up and showed the day and date today, but I'm surprised it took looking it up on the net to answer it. Not quite Siri yet but getting much better. BTW, I'm on .1154/55.
