From a business standpoint, the features provided by the Blackberry Curve have become assets to most professionals and business owners.

Read on to learn more about the many ways you can use and customize your Blackberry Curve device for business purposes.
Synchronize with Corporate Email
Contact the IT department within your professional workplace to receive the username and password information for your business’ Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES). The BES will allow you to access corporate email and calendar events directly from your Blackberry device.
Travel Internationally with your Blackberry
Consult with your wireless service provider to verify that your Blackberry plan provides you with the opportunity to roam on international cell phone towers. All Blackberry Curve devices have multiple built-in frequencies that are compatible with most international locations; however, some wireless service providers may require you to activate the international roaming feature, especially if you need access to data and Internet while traveling.
Instant Message your Co-Workers
Send and receive messages with your co-workers using Blackberry Messenger. The Blackberry Messenger service allows you to connect with other Blackberry users in real-time, and does not require you to release your Blackberry phone number to other co-workers and Blackberry users.
Use your Blackberry as a Modem
Connect your Blackberry Curve to your computer or laptop for use as a modem. The Internet and data capabilities built into the Curve allow users to connect the device to a computer, and receive connectivity in most locations around the world. Refer to the user manual for your Blackberry device to determine the exact steps for achieving connectivity on your computer using your phone as a modem.
Organize your Messages using Folders
Separate and organize your emails and text messages into their own folders. By default, most Blackberry devices combine all message types in the same messaging folder; however, you still have the ability to create new folders and keep your messaging folder organized.
- To separate your emails and text messages from one another, navigate to your Messages folder, press the Menu button, and select “Options.” You will then have the ability to choose “Separate” within “SMS and Email Inboxes” and keep your incoming messages in order.
In addition to the steps provided above, there are multiple other ways to customize your Blackberry Curve in order to make it suitable for both business, and pleasure.
