How to turn off BBM Group notification

Most BB users should know BlackBerry Messenger has added “BBM Group” feature since version 5 onward. This is a great feature allow you to join a group (Max is 30 people) for group chat. Of course you will meet more friends in the group chat.

The disadvantage is the more group you join (while people are aggressively chatting in the group), there will be many messages push into your BlackBerry phone. And notification sounds are non-stop ringing in you BlackBerry phone too.

Actually there is a way to disable a group notification and I found not many people know how to disable it. Here I share the secret. Go to BBM Group, press menu button, then select “Group details”. Below screen will appear.

Scroll down to the bottom part. Change the setting “Turn Off All Notifications For This Group” to YES.

BlackBerry Windows Live Messenger auto disconnect?

Do you notice that BlackBerry Windows Live Messenger will disconnect automatically? This is due to carrier network unstable then affect connection lost to MSN network. Maybe some other country that has better and stable network coverage so BB user didn’t encounter this issue, but in Malaysia I believe most BB users are encounter this issue.

Here is my idea to solve this issue. During login screen, please check the “automatic Sign-In” option. With this option enable, Windows Live Messenger will auto reconnect back to network when disconnected.

Maximizing Battery Life On Your BlackBerry

Maximizing Battery Life On Your BlackBerry
Bad coverage = battery drain
If you are in an area of weak coverage, your battery will drain very quickly. Your BlackBerry smartphone is constantly looking for, finding, and trying hard to receive network signal.

3rd party app running in the background
Make sure that app is closed when you are not using it. For proper apps closing, in the application, bring up your menu, scroll to the bottom and choose “Close” or “Exit”.

Using 3G signal will drain battery fast
GSM/EDGE signal will have better battery life than a 3G. The benefit is that 3G have faster data transfer speeds than their GSM/EDGE. GSM/EDGE is good enough for normal usage and messaging (almost no lagging), therefore you don’t need 3G signal. Only turn on 3G, when you need high speed internet browsing.

Update BlackBerry OS may result in improve battery life
You should always keep the BB OS up to date with the most recent CARRIER AUTHORIZED (NOT Leaked OS). Sometimes a new OS is significantly improving battery life. For example, the most recent OS update for the BlackBerry Curve 8900 improved battery life by almost 50%!

Blackberry smartphone setting
Go to Options-Screen / Keyboard.
Backlight Brightness: The lower setting is helps to conserve battery life.
Backlight Timeout: The longer the screen is on, the more battery you’re using.
Automatically Dim Backlight: While it will help by lighting up the screen when you step into the sun so that you can see it, this feature also allows the BlackBerry device to realize when you are in a darker area and dim your screen accordingly.

Always use BlackBerry holster
Put your BlackBerry smartphone into holster will turn your smartphone into “sleep-mode” in order to conserve battery.
