    Maybe he is using another type of font family that can also make a difference though.
    + the fonts family settings like fontstyle, fontsmoothing etc. Not sure if he uses the default font.
    I am using the default font (BB Alpha Sans, plain) but have also tried Arial... to no avail.
    Font smothing is on, but I have tried to disable it.

    Just a long shot here. Is it possible you had DM restore calander events that have corrupted your calander? Maybe restored display or theme settings?

    Problems like this always seem to coincide with restoring anything other than basic info like messages, appointments, alarms. As soon as people start restoring OS specific stuff like permissions, settings, etc. The problems start to come out of the wood work.

    Yeah my Calendar font is way too small. I have to squint to make out what day is what. Hope this gets fixed in a new update.

    hey guys, I'm not sure if this has been discussed before. When you're using the mobile hotspot option or modem mode, it disables data on the phone itself. I'd like to be able to share my internet and use the phone internet at the same time. Can we fix that?

    Damn, at first, my battery life was pretty good, got me 12 hours of battery life.

    Now, I just unplugged the phone, like 45 min ago it dropped to 93?!

    In 45 min I didn't use it non stop, I even took a shower...

    I only use whatsapp and ubersocial and I don't have any other apps running...

    BBM uses data and your blackberry's PIN.

    Thanks, but I know that. I was referring to your saying " non bb numbers" . I guess you meant texting to people via their phone numbers.

    If you don't have an external charger or extra battery, I recommend you get both. The battery is more accurately charged outside the device. Searching for blackberry external battery charger on Ebay will show good choices, just remember to sort by lowest price + shipping first.

    No, not using data. Bbm to imessage won't work. But if they use SMS, you can add their number that way and SMS from within Bbm.

    Launch BBM, hit Invite Contact, it'll then say enter the PIN, e-mail, name or phone number. Quite easy from there.

    Its more accurately charged outside the device? The moon made out of cheese too?

    Did anyone ever stop to think when the Lithium-Ion battery is fully charged what happens at that point?

    The battery stops receiving a charge. It then discharges to a preset level and when that happens it begins to charge again.

    Just because you pulled it off the charger 3.67 nano seconds ago doesn't mean the battery is fully charged.

    That's why the notification LED changes color when you use the "Power Off" icon before charging the phone.

    Why do people drive the dumbest crap into the ground?

    I appreciate your help really. Thank you.
    When I tried it witj my wife using a touch screen nokia, she received the following message :
    "Click this PIN to invite me to BBM pin XXXXXX
    BlackBerry - Messenger - BBM an Instant Messaging App "

    But nothing happened when she touched the PIN !!

    I guess I knew what you mean, texting with people that do not have BBM, but must have a blackberry phone , right ?
