    Hidden menus

    Here's a list of Hidden Menus & Functions I've stumbled across. Some of them are handy for BES/Enterprise support only.

    Most require you to hold down the ALT key whilst typing the letters after the + sign (they don't need to be capitals).


    Enterprise Activation (Options->Advanced)
    ALT+CNFG - Settings for Enterprise Activation

    Address Book
    ALT+VALD - Validate the data structure and look for inconsistencies
    ALT+RBLD - Force a data structure rebuild

    from the Options menu, type the following (No ALT+ required)
    RSET - Will prompt to erase & reload for a reload of the Address book from the BES
    (n.b. this will wipe all entries, but you can goto SIM Phone Book & copy entries back afterwards)


    Browser
    ALT+RBVS - View web page source code

    Calendar
    Open up a Calendar item
    ALT+VIEW Inside any Calendar item Show extra info for a Calendar event
    (including message ID - handy for BES log troubleshooting)

    from the Options menu, type the following (No ALT+ required)
    SYNC - Enable Calendar slow sync
    RSET - Will prompt for a reload of the calendar from the BES

    BlackBerry Storm Tip

    For a change on your home screen.
    you can change the signal strength from bars to a numerical (dB) value. Hold the phone in landscape mode, turn on the keyboard, num-lock and type the following: !,""

    (exclamation point, comma, double quote, double quote)


    Its a litttle small on the storm though

    Help Desk Trouble Shooting Tip:

    Test Email with confirm requested

    When an end user calls saying they arenít receiving emails you can send them a test email with <confirm> at the beginning of the subject line (as seen below). When the Blackberry device receives a message with this in the beginning of the subject field, it knows to send an automatic reply to the sender with a confirmation that it has received the message.



    Reply Message received from the device

    Your message:

    TO: anyone@ blackberryuser.com.au

    SENT: Fri Oct 27 13:32:22 2006

    AUS Eastern Standard Time

    SUBJECT: <confirm> Test Email



    has been delivered to the recipient's BlackBerry Handheld.
