Re: AppWorld Crashing

In the settings menu, About/OS what OS version is the tablet?

And.. if you haven't already, install Blackberry Link on your desktop and plug in the playbook. It might help with the updating.

Re: How do I change a PDF doc. Name?

Probably every other file manager will allow you to rename.
A couple examples are File Browser and Files and Folders.

Re: Playbook Media Remote?

Yup, what Jase88 said. I use Rocketfish BT headphones with the same features on my Playbook and Z10.

Re: Thinking to Buy

Not sure what the OP is asking. It's a fairly vague post which is why I ask what the tablet would be used for.

Re: Thinking to Buy

It depends what you'd want your tablet for. The Playbook, although at end of support, is a VERY capable device with thousands of apps. I still use mine daily and it's rock solid.

Re: Playbook And Bb10

Skype preview from BB world works fine on the Z10 with the 10.1 update.

Whether the PB will get BB10 remains to be seen. Somewhat controversial at the moment.

Re: Playbook black screen

Did you try holding power button AND both volume keys? If it takes a screenshot (camera shutter noise), you're not getting all 3 buttons at the same time.

Re: Playbook display set to always on - car kit

If your car has some kind of bluetooth then all PB audio can be sent to car's bluetooth and it doesn't matter if the screen goes off. Magellan compass will keep the screen active.

Re: Playbook display set to always on - car kit

In my experience there's only a few apps that will keep the screen active and they must be visible on screen to do so. What specifically are you wanting the PB to display full time?

Re: All My Data on the Playbook Gone!

Once you get the initial setup done again, enable file sharing on the tablet, make sure Blackberry desktop software installs it's USB driver and try again.

As above, no idea why that happened....
