User Guide

Welcome to BlackBerry!

Welcome to BlackBerry!

This is one of the many resources available to help you use your BlackBerry® device. You can look for answers in the Help application on the Home screen of your device, or by pressing the Menu key and clicking Help in most applications.

Feature availability

The following items affect the availability of features on your BlackBerry® device. The features discussed are meant as examples, and are not inclusive of every feature that might or might not be available on your device.

Device model

Features such as an internal GPS receiver, Wi-Fi® connection capability, and the camera and video camera are dependant on your device model. To find feature specifications for your device model, visit www.blackberry.com/go/devices.

Wireless service plan

A wireless service plan with phone or voice is required to use the phone application and to send and receive SMS text messages and MMS messages.

A wireless service plan with data is required to use the browser service and instant messaging applications, and to send and receive email messages and PIN messages.

For more information, contact your wireless service provider.

BlackBerry Internet Service and BlackBerry Enterprise Server

Once you have a data plan, you must set up your email address or third-party instant messaging account in order to send and receive email messages, use third-party instant messaging applications, and use certain browser configurations.

If you are an individual user, when you set up your email address or instant messaging account, you are associating it with the BlackBerry® Internet Service.

If you are a corporate user, your administrator sets up your email account by associating it with a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server. Your administrator might set options that determine the features and settings that are available on your device.

Emergency calls

About emergency calls

If you are outside of a wireless coverage area and the SOS wireless coverage indicator appears, you can only call emergency numbers. Your BlackBerry® device is designed to allow emergency calls even when your device is locked. Depending on your device model and the wireless network that your device is connected to, your device is also designed to allow emergency calls when the SIM card is not inserted. If the connection to the wireless network is turned off when you initiate an emergency call, your device is designed to connect to the wireless network automatically.

You can only make emergency calls by typing official emergency access numbers (for example, 911 or 112).

Note: You should not rely on any wireless device for essential communications, including medical emergencies. Emergency numbers may vary by location and emergency calls may be blocked or impeded by network, environmental, or interference issues.

About Emergency Callback Mode

If your BlackBerry® device is connected to a CDMA network, when you end an emergency call, your device enters Emergency Callback Mode. This mode enables the operator to call you back or determine your approximate location. Depending on your wireless service provider, Emergency Callback Mode is active for five minutes or is canceled when you make a non-emergency call.

In Emergency Callback Mode, you cannot send and receive messages or browse web pages.

Your device exits Emergency Callback Mode at any time if you make a non-emergency call.

Conference calls

About conference calls

You can create two types of conference calls with your BlackBerry® device. If your organization or a conferencing service has provided you with a conference call bridge number, you can create conference call meetings in the calendar on your device or computer. Conference call meetings allow participants who have a BlackBerry device to enter the conference call meeting with a one-touch Join Now option, if this feature is supported on their device, so that they do not have to dial the conference call bridge number and access codes. If you do not have a conference call bridge number, you can create a conference call by calling other contacts and joining the calls together.
