Thus, this allowed you to set the phone to automatically switch to silent/vibrate mode when you were at your office, but automatically switch to ringer mode when you left your office. Very cool. Unfortunately, I haven't seen anything like this for BB.
Yes, or you could (when you have this information) transmit this every minute or so to a site/database, so other people can see where you (and your BB) are. That was my original idea.
I'm still hopefull that this IS indeed possible, seen your reaction that smart phones software programmers used the same idea.
Will search further and keep you posted when I have more information available/start working on my app.
