When To Switch Blackberry?

RIM is currently the beaten dog in smartphone land. His operating system does dated and customers walk en masse. We help switchers a hand.

Contacts transfer
the BlackBerry is primarily known for its excellent support for email and contacts. There are several ways to that long list of contacts automatically transfer to your new smartphone.

The first is somewhat cumbersome but effective: synchronize your BlackBerry device to their desktop software BlackBerry Desktop Software, which includes syncs with Microsoft Outlook Express and Windows Calendar. Then you can use iTunes or Zune software your contacts to the iPhone or Windows Mobile transfer.

For the switch to Android is Google Sync recommended, although the support BlackBerry in this case is not optimal. Your BlackBerry data is added to your Google account, which you then to your new device can transmit. For iPhone owners, there is lastly the paid app Berry Mover (7.99 euros), which not only contacts, but also text messages and calendars for your transfer.

Security
Because BlackBerry is primarily a business device, many people have their BlackBerry probably got the job, which can keep some (or all contact information) are protected and can not be transferred to another type of device. Check with your IT department what can and can not save yourself misery.

Typing
text typing on a touchscreen is less effective than the fixed keyboard of the BlackBerry. We therefore recommend that you install an alternative keyboard. Swype toetsenbordapp is our favorite, but that is only available on Android. On Windows Phone you can try betaalapp Sliding Keyboard. On the iPhone there is no good alternative, you can only install on jailbroken devices a Swypevariant.

Instant Messaging
BlackBerry Messenger is one of the biggest advantages of the BlackBerry OS, so who switch to another terminal, will also have to get used to another way of chatting. Each has its own competing platform chat (eg Google Talk), but we recommend it WhatsApp , because this chatapp on all major platforms available.
