How To Get BlackBerry OS 5 Ringtones On Your OS 6 BlackBerry

posted by Justin Lisenby at on Jan 31, 2011 | Leave a comment

There are quite a few ringtones from OS 5 that were not included in OS 6. RIM did create some new tones for OS 6 but many of us had our favorite tones and some of theme were taken away when we got BlackBerry 6. The team over at Crackberry has been looking into this and found a solution. RIM actually offers a download of all the BlackBerry OS 5 ringtones in a nice little installer package. Then only thing you have to do is go to the link below on your OS 6 BlackBerry to install the OS 5 ringtones on your BlackBerry. Please note that if you upgrade your OS you will have to install this ringtone pack again. Has anyone missed their OS 5 tones on their new BB6 BlackBerry?

Poynt has released an update of their popular BlackBerry application to version There aren’t many changes in this release other than the GPS fix for BlackBerry OS 5. Before this new update, many users of Poynt on BlackBerry OS 5, including me,  were getting the “GPS Not Supported” error and the app was falling back to using the cellular tower location method. I’m happy to report that the bug has been fixed in this release, at least on my OS 5 BlackBerry. If you’re a Poynt user, or you want to be a Poynt user, head on over to App World using the link below to download the update.
