    Thanks again Ralph. Got it.

    A few glitches to iron out but I now have the following working


    Twitter
    Hotmail
    Gmail
    Text /MMS
    Opera browser
    CB app
    Accuweather
    Force Close
    Screen Grabber
    And of course the phone which is clear as a bell.

    And btw I found with this 9900 using one of those Noosy SIM adaptors is the best way to go. Also holding the phone upside down when inserting it helps.

    Can you recommend a good screen dimmer? It never seems dim enough in my room at night?

    And is there a better screenshot app? The one I have won't work in the CB app for example.

    Thanks for everything. If we ever meet, dinner is on me.



    Ps -- shoutout to ColinsCity for his brilliant wee Gmail thread!

    Awesome! I tried Screen Grabber and I didn't like it either, so I use the one I did in 2011 called Screen Muncher, free version. I have never been able to take a screen shot in the CB app, I think that is just how it is.

    Here is the screen dim app I use and it's awesome! But Telus will bill you .99 cents on your next bill for it, but worth it.

    Oh. One more thing. You remember that one contact glitch of yours when going from iMessage to the 9900? Well I have one contact back in the iCollective who can't seem to get pictures through to me. He's on an iPhone 5C with Wind. I switched iMessage off long before putting the SIM in the Bold, & am getting messages from him just not photos.

    Any thoughts?

    Not sure about that one bud. I have a buddy who got a 5C when I did, he is with Telus and he gets my full SMS messages with pics.

    Ok have a feeling it is related to Wind not being an official Apple partner in Canada and even selling "preloved" iPhones, which Apple is none too pleased with, I hear.

    Wow. So chuffed about all this I cannot sleep

    Good morning.

    Yes did that; all good. Problem was a friend trying to send MMS to me was unable to do so. It does seem it is a Wind / iPhone problem. Lots about it on the intartubes.

    Have a different question. Often get this screen when starting or restarting phone. If i don't dismiss it it just keeps going:

    Is it trying to synchronise my Hotmail contacts? Because contacts is a problem in its own right.

    So far haven't figured out a way to get my contacts onto the Bold without just manually entering them. Gmail not doing it. Hotmail not doing it either.

    Don't really want to do the "Switch Devices" thing in Setup because I'm not really switching devices.

    I used to get a message like that and after a month or 2 it seemed to "settle." I have not seen it again.

    Sorry I've never synced contacts (I don't think" but mine were all on my sim card from the iphone, as this sim card was originally for the iphone and Rogers saved them on the sim.

    What you could do is be lazy and just wait until the important contacts call you and then "save to contacts"

    There was a lot of talk of this topic before in here but I just do them manually otherwise.

    I will look back through the thread. I just did a Bluetooth to Bluetooth thing and got all the less used contacts that way. Most of the important ones have already been added in the way you suggested, and many of those have been lining up to ask me why my iMessage isn't working LOL

    Now the fun part, you have to convince them to install the BBM app on their iphones.

    Mine works ok except for the double posting and sometimes you send a pic in ios BBM and the person got it but it says "File Transfer failed."

    On the 9900 BBM has always worked perfectly, same for the 9780 and 9790's I had.

    Here is where you can get one (but if you get spare batteries a wall charger for the seperate battery might be more useful...

    https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B00KDO...droidcent08-20

    As for the clock, click the clock icon, and hit the BB Button, there are settings under "sleep mode" and it turns the 9900 into an alarm clock if you have the Pod Desktop Charger.

    You answered your own question The Frankenstein knobs on the botton are the charging contacts.

    I ordered a plain white spacebar from amazon and you can also have your cake and eat it too!

    Was it "Elf" or "Home Alone" when the kid asked all those questions

    I am using my BB bold 4 9900 along with my iPhone 4 (i know, Old). But they compliment each other like anything. I use the beautiful camera/instagram and iBooks (to read PDF and epub files) on my old iPhone and my Blackberry Bold is mostly used for calling/messaging and Whatsapp (of course). The LED light makes me look at the superb business phone only when I have a missed call or message. This works out in my busy office ( I work at a publishing house handing a large team). I have bought another BB bold for my colleague who sits next to me and was impressed by the retro business looks of the lovely device. I am planning to sell him the new device for $125, the price i bought it was the same. I just felt it's a good thing to do.. planting BLACKBERRIES!!!! lol I wanna start a revolution!!
