Continuos Vibrate and Music Alert until Confirmation : update

I had recently thought I solved my issue with creating a continuous vibrate and music alert for the BlackBerry application that I created for work. Unfortunately, when I put the fix on to the phone, the volume level of the music was very low, even though I had the volume set to 100%. So, it was back to the drawing board to try and figure out how to get this working. The main issue was determining if the music had finished and then starting it again until the user pressed a key.

Continuos Vibrate and Music Alert until Confirmation

The main phone application that I support at work gets data pushed to it. Part of the data is a Message Page to notify the technician that they have a service call assigned or needing attention.

The key reason for using SQLite is so that I can populate the device-side information easily.  Unfortunately, the data sent to the device is not in the best format at the moment.  So, I have to take sudo HTML tables and parse them out into data to be Continue reading Cursing the cursor

Upgrading from 4.5 to 6.0

At work I have been attempting to get our 800+ BlackBerry devices updated. This all began when we provided our service application to a site to use with their own technicians. The devices that we gave them were the BlackBerry Bold 9930. Luckily for me, I also got one of these devices and handed in an old 8800 BlackBerry. The Bold’s came with OS 7.0, but I updated mine to 7.1 in order to take advantage of the Hot Spot feature. Also, in OS 6 and 7, there is a feature for using Near Field Communication NFC tags. While most Continue reading Upgrading from 4.5 to 6.0
