How to alter application permissions with BlackBerry 10.2.1

Since Android applications have been readily available to download onto BlackBerry 10.2.1 devices one of the main complaints I see in the comments is that we have no control over app permissions. Many Android apps will automatically have access to areas of your device including your media content and that's just for starters. As BlackBerry users we like our security!

Dear Berry: How do I scroll through my photos on BlackBerry 10?

Need advice on how to solve your BlackBerry woes? Dear Berry is here to save the day.

Hello again readers! Dear Berry is here once again with a mailbag full of BlackBerry questions and woes. Today's question comes from Steve who asks:

Is there any way to swipe through files in File manager rather then having to look at one file/photo then going back and clicking another? Very annoying especially with having a large amount of files (in this case pictures) stored on phone and media card. Thanks, Steve

How to avoid data roaming charges when travelling with BlackBerry 10

There's nothing worse than coming back from a vacation and getting a huge bill from your mobile carrier as you've been eating up data whilst in another county. There's a few ways to avoid this and luckily the options are baked right into BlackBerry 10 to make life easy for us.

Clearly switching off data altogether and just hitting up a Wi-Fi hotspot when you can will be the cheapest way of doing things and this can be done with a simple on/off toggle. BlackBerry 10 also gives us the option when roaming for data services to be on, off or my favorite is the prompt feature. If you ask me it makes sense to ensure your device is set to the 'prompt' option so when you land in another country and connect to a local carrier your BlackBerry will at least notify you if you wish to use data.

As we all know - depending where in the world you travel can be stupidly expensive - although most carriers do offer some roaming data bundles.

To tweak your roaming settings just follow these simple steps:

  • Open settings - Swipe down from the top bezel
  • Select Network and Connections
  • Select Mobile Network
  • Here you will see the option to toggle off data or under the roaming section select from On, Off or Prompt.

That should save you some cash if you don't need data activated all the time while on holiday. I'm still having nightmares of when I last attended BlackBerry Live in Orlando and realized just how much data I was getting through each day!
