Question blackberry to the rescue

Please Login to Remove!

The recent events in India where several folks kept aware of the rescue efforts using their blackberry's had a couple of us talking. They reported about a 'network' kept them in touch. Do you think there was an external source that coordinated the communication or is there some way for a blackberry to 'find' other blackberry's in this type of situation.

Never know when it may come in handy.....

There is no way to "find" other blackberrys. They probably just accessed a website or just got info via email.

Blackberry doesn't transfer addresses via bluetooth.

Maybe they just PIN messaged each other with details. "I'm in room 403, back corner by the sink..." kind of stuff.
