Have your BlackBerry save your voicemail password

Here is a quick little tip for those of you with a voicemail package on your BlackBerry.  Some people are unaware that their BlackBerry smartphone can remember their voicemail password.  This makes for much quicker and simpler process than having to enter your password each time you dial into your voicemail.  The process is similar on all OS from 5 and up.  (Shown here is my OS 7.1)

Here is how to do it:

Go to the phone app (you can do this by pressing the green phone button or by locating the phone icon on your desktop). Once in the phone app, press the menu button and select options.

Now from the list select Voicemail (change voicemail credentials).  You should see two areas to enter information. The upper is the actual phone number your BlackBerry calls to check your voicemail (so don't change it!). The second is the password. Just enter your voicemail password here.  
Now press the menu button again, select save and you are done!

Test it by holding down the Q or 1 key (you did know you could do that right?)

BlackBerry Fan Of The Month for May 2012!!!

I have been named BlackBerry Fan Of The Month ( #BlackBerryFOTM ) for the month of May!  I received an email a few weeks back from RIM asking me if I would accept this award (duh!).  I was interviewed via telephone and asked a whole bunch of questions.  I spent almost an hour talking with the marketing reps, and could have talked longer!  I'm sure they thought I was crazy!  It truly is an honour (yes I AM Canadian) to be nominated for this award.  Anyone who has met me knows what a true #TeamBlackBerry fan I am, and this title just seems to fit :-)

BTW I still have a few #TeamBlackBerry T-shirts left if you wish to purchase one.  DM and we'll talk.
