BlackBerry Q10 Sketches

BlackBerry Q10 availability is just around the corner and soon you’ll be able to get your hands on this much-anticipated smartphone. There’s a lot to be said about the attention to detail that has been put in to crafting this premium smartphone. With a rich heritage of building what some have called the best physical keyboard experience in the industry – the task of taking that experience to the next level for BlackBerry 10 was a welcomed challenge. Over the past few months, I’ve been working with the design team at BlackBerry to understand what goes into building the next iconic BlackBerry smartphone. Here’s what they have to say about designing the gorgeous new BlackBerry Q10.

Your iTunes will sync to your BlackBerry!

Posted on April 22, 2013. Filed under: BlackBerry 10, Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

iTunes sync to BlackBerry

There are many people, both iOS users and not, who do not know that their iTunes library will sync with their BlackBerry.  If you are purchasing any BlackBerry smartphone, whether it is the latest Z10 or Q10 device or you prefer an OS 6 or 7 device such as the Bold 9900, Curve 9360 etc, iTunes will sync with it.  This is a relief to iPhone or iPod users who are looking at buying a BlackBerry but are afraid of losing their iTunes music library.

First of all, to install and then sync to your new BlackBerry OS 7 and below you will need BlackBerry Desktop Manager.  This should automatically be triggered to download when you first hook up your new BlackBerry to your PC or Mac.  If you prefer to download and explore beforehand, you can download it from http://ca.blackberry.com/software/desktop.html for either PC or Mac.  Also see http://ca.blackberry.com/software/desktop/blackberry-media-sync.html .  (It notes in the fine print that “BlackBerry Media Sync is compatible with 32-bit editions of Windows® XP Service Pack 2 AND 64 and 32-bit e editions of Windows Vista™ which requires iTunes version 7.7.1 or higher. Not compatible Windows 2000. Mac OS 10.4 and 10.5 require iTunes version 7.7.1 or higher. All applicable charges will still apply for the purchase of music from iTunes.”)

Sync to your BlackBerry from a Mac

iTunes sync works for all BlackBerry devices, including the PlayBook

If you have an OS 10 device (Z10 or Q10 at this point), you will need BlackBerry Link instead at http://ca.blackberry.com/software/desktop/blackberry-link.html and these are the instructions on transferring your files from an iPhone to a BlackBerry 10 device: http://ca.blackberry.com/content/dam/blackBerry/pdf/howTo/Switching_from_an_iPhone_to_a_BlackBerry_Z10.pdf  When setting up, you will get a choice to either sync with iTunes or Windows Media Player.  Choose iTunes, assuming that is your preference.

Choose iTunes to sync your iTunes media to your BlackBerry 10 device

After initial setup, (Windows)  iTunes can be synced by just right clicking on the Music icon when the My Computer tab is checked.  Then choose ‘sync’ to transfer files to the Z10.   There also were some songs I was not interested in having on my playlist any more so I was glad to be able to get rid of them.  🙂

There are many helpful sites, including BlackBerry Help sites for general or specific information eg http://ca.blackberry.com/support.html and http://ca.blackberry.com/support/smartphones.html  and on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/user/blackberrysupport, as well as many blog sites and @BlackBerryHelp on Twitter https://twitter.com/BlackBerryHelp which have many resources to help.

Enjoy your new BlackBerry!  🙂

Instagram is working on my BlackBerry Z10

Great tip from Andrew! If your Instagram has stopped working and you didn’t link it to Facebook in the first place, try this to get it back.

The way I did it was I logged into Instagram from an ipad or iphone or any Android device. Then, I linked the account to my Facebook account. The way I did that is click the icon on the right lower corner of the iOS/Android device then click the gear to go into Settings. Next click Share Settings and then choose Facebook. You may see a pop up asking you for Allow Access.
*** Just make sure that the device was already logged in to the Facebook account.

After that I did the reset process with face book  and it let me reset it.

Now here is the article from CrackBerry Click Here with steps of to get Instagram on the BB10. Now if it doesn’t work do what I did (read the beginning) .
