  • Blackberry Playbook - Connect a Bluetooth enabled device

    • Connect a Bluetooth enabled device

      Watch the video

      You can use Bluetooth® technology to connect your BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet to a wireless keyboard, mouse, mobile phone, headset or other device that uses a supported Bluetooth profile. The first time you connect to a device, you pair it with your tablet. Your tablet remembers paired devices and usually connects to them automatically whenever they're in range.

      For information about connecting your tablet to a BlackBerry smartphone, see the BlackBerry Bridge section of the Help.

      1.  On the status bar, tap Settings > Bluetooth.
      2. Set the Bluetooth switch to On.
      3. Tap Add New Device > Search.
      4. Tap a device.
      5. If necessary, do one of the following:
        • Type a pairing passkey of your choice on both the device you're pairing with and on your tablet.
        • On your tablet, type the pairing passkey that appears on the device you're pairing with or in the information that came with the device. If you don't know the passkey, try 0000.
      After you finish:

      Reconnect to a paired device

      In the list of paired devices, tap the device > Connect.

      Change options for a paired device

      In the list of paired devices, tap the device.

      Delete a paired device

      In the list of paired devices, tap the device > Delete.

      Make your tablet discoverable

      To allow other Bluetooth enabled devices to search for your tablet and attempt to connect to it, you can make it discoverable. Set the Discoverable switch to On.

      To help protect your tablet against unauthorised access, you can make it discoverable for 2 minutes only. Tap Add New Device > Listen.

  • Blackberry Playbook - Tether your tablet to a Bluetooth enabled device

    • Need Internet on the go, but you're not near a Wi-Fi® hotspot? When there's no other way to access the Internet, you can tether your BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet to a Bluetooth® enabled smartphone.

      Note: In order to tether your tablet to a Bluetooth enabled device, your smartphone must have a data plan that supports tethering, and your wireless service provider must allow tethering. Your smartphone must also be Bluetooth enabled, and the IT policy for Bluetooth DUN must be enabled. For more information about any of these requirements, contact your wireless service provider or administrator, check your wireless service plan, and consult the documentation that came with your smartphone.
      1.  On your tablet, tap  > Internet Tethering.
      2. Select a Bluetooth enabled smartphone from the list.
      3. To assign an Internet tethering profile, do one of the following:
        • Select a wireless service provider from the list.
        • To create a custom profile, tap Add and complete the fields.
      4. Tap Connect.

      When you are not using the tethering connection, you should disconnect the session. To disconnect, tap  >Internet Tethering > Disconnect.

      While your smartphone is tethered to your tablet, you might not be able to use your smartphone's Phone application, Messaging applications or applications that use the Internet. To receive a phone call, your smartphone might turn off the tethered Internet connection. In addition, when your tablet is tethered to a smartphone, you cannot send messages from your tablet to the tethered smartphone.

      The Bridge Browser icon is dimmed or missing

If you received a lot of email since you saved the draft, it might appear far down in the inbox.

      I can't find a memo I'm searching for

      You can search only the titles of memos, not the contents.

      Welcome to Inside BlackBerry® Help Blog, Research In Motion’s BlackBerry smartphone support blog and the newest edition to the Inside BlackBerry blog family!

      You’ve probably seen us (or our work) around in spaces such as the BlackBerry Support Community Forums@BlackBerryHelp on Twitter, and the Official BlackBerry® Channel on YouTube™. We’ve loved being engaged with the community through these channels (and will continue to do so!) and hope we have helped many of you out along way.

      Through this support blog we feel we can add a little extra to the community by sharing knowledge and tips… before you even have to ask!

      What this blog is about

      We’ve assembled some of our best technical support experts to provide tips and tricks, go in depth on features and show you how it all works.

      But we know this blog isn’t just about us and our perspectives – it’s about YOU and what you need to know to get the most out of your BlackBerry smartphone. Be sure to join in the conversation and get connected with the great information being shared online!

      What this blog isn’t about

      We’re excited to continue to contribute to the conversation, but that said, this isn’t the place to discuss topics like unreleased products, financial and forward-looking statements, service outages or carrier matters. Besides, these are matters where our topic experts aren’t, well, the experts.

      Let us know what’s working and what’s not. See our Comments Policy, and you can also suggest a topicyou’d like to see discussed.
