Tips: Speed Up Your Blackberry Messenger 5.0


Maybe this tips is a bit old but I found it quite recently at and it works. So I thought I will share it here. You just need to change small thing and you can notify slight improvement of your Blackberry Messenger (BBM) in individual chat or even in Blackberry Group (BBG). I found big improvement especially in BBG.
Here is how:
1. Go to your Blackberry Messenger. Press  menu, choose Options
2. Under Chats, you need to change Conversation Style to Standard. Bubbles and Stripes have the alternate colors between you and the other recipients with blue and White. So change it to Standard means no alternate colors.
3. Hit  and press Save

You should notice improvement over your chat. Give it a shot.

Tips: Adjust Your Picture for Wallpaper


I snap a lot of pictures with my Blackberry Storm since that is the handiest tool I always have around. But for several reasons sometimes the picture composition not as right as I thought to become wallpaper. And I'm not a fave of retouch, resize & crop my mobile pictures with image editor in my PC, as I'm lazy to copy, edit and move it back. But luckily Blackberry OS is smart enough so we can recompose the picture for wallpaper. The steps is very simple and no 3rd party app:

  1.  go to Media>>Pictures and choose the picture you want. For example, I found this picture in my gallery. If I want to use this dove as my wallpaper, setting it as it is, is not that attractive, in my opinion. I need to recompose it

  2. What I need to do is just tap on my Blackberry Storm or Blackberry menu and select Zoom In and repeat until certain level and move it around so it can fit nicely on the front page.

  3. After that press Blackberry menu, and choose Set As Wallpaper, there is also option Set As Caller ID   for picture profile in your contact.

  4. and here is the result.  Looks much nicer :)

    Happy trying :) remember don't go bigger than its resolution, or the picture will look awful
