That was good news to all blackberry users. Is there any available blackberry in some selected stores? I think that super app of blackberry is very awesome and will be like most of the blackberry users. I hope you will have loads of apps to offer.

Does it mean that there is no more specific topics for Gold user ?

I can't seem to get the new Blackberry Travel app to work. I've been a worldmate customer for over a yearand have encouraged our sales staff to hop on board. Heading to an annual sales meeting and would like to bring up the new app, if I can get it to work. Any ideas? I tried forwarding my reservations and pulling from my in box, but it still has no trips in the queue.

Thank you
Julie

I'm having the same problem. I've been using WorldMate, and I've sent my itineraries to this new app. But no trips are showing up.

Not sure if this one was ready for prime time.

I like and understand fully your topic and bookmark it for future post of you. wish you all the best of all.Excellent post for me and thank you for this.


Excellent post and very helpful for me. I've find some new idea to read this article.

Loved this app until the upgrade 2 days ago. Now it says "cannot connect to the internet". Wish someone would fix this because I really liked it.

I thought it was just me! Hate it when upgrades break something that has been working perfectly
Any idea when this will be fixed?

I am simply gobsmacked about the unfathomable way this application is being rolled out to countries.....you add New Zealand to the list, and don't add Australia?

Sorry, but to be honest, the list of countries does not make sense (you add Nigeria, and not South Africa (which by the way, is experiencing some of the biggest BlackBerry growth percentages around!).

I certainly do hope something positive happens sooner rather than later.

app download is not offered for a 9800 even it is mentioned to be compatible? Will worldmate gold supported and have different features?

Please add Chile to the Country List..... i've used Worldmate for almost 2 years and am anxious to have this new app up and runing!!!

PLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASE!!!

A bit foolish of me to have payed for the Gold Version.
Is there a way I can transfer my Gold subsription to my Android?

Can I still use my worldmate live and input trips there and will it sync with the Blackberry Travel or vice versa?

Blackberry Travel, what about Germany ???

BEWARE - you will see that Blackberry tell you that one of the system requirements is "BlackBerry Internet Bundle browsing capabilities". This is code for only working with BlackBerry Internet Service. It does NOT work via a BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

That is one powerful BlackBerry app, alright. I think the Travel Notifications feature is a very useful one. Not only does it provide information, but it also gives the user the feeling of security about his/her schedule. Nothing's a worse spoiler than postponed plans, so keeping yourself updated with the status of your flights maintains the positive travel vibes.

I keep meaning to try golden delicious apples in baking, but usually use the unknown-name apples from the tree in the next yard

Excellent Info. Tweeted about it. I?l bookmark this post too.

I’ve bookmarked this because I found it interesting. I would be very interested to hear more news on this. Thanks!

I right be in bed with your weblog! Rattling keen job! Nevertheless you can do various things to enrich it, and i faculty be backward

I like the writing structure of your blog and it does a pretty decent job of presenting the material.

Great article you've written, is this your first website blog or have you been doing this a while? I'd be interested in reading some more of your things. Links please?

You really neaten it seem so unchaste with your show but I learn this issue to be truly something which I opine I would never realise. It seems too complicated and really encompassing for me. I am hunt gardant for your succeeding post, I will try to get the grasp of it!

It is my great pleasure to look at your site and to enjoy your great posts here. I like it very much. I know that you put much attention for these articles, as all of them make sense and are very useful

But its name should be BB Travel.

Blackberry Travel only works on a Blackberry if you run it using a BIS service. It does not work if your handset runs a BES (Business Enterprise Service) via your company, which sort of defeats the object of the app as most users will surely be business people. I know this as I spent months trying to find out why it worked and then stopped when I upgraded the app to the latest software version. So why can't Worldmate make it run on BES as well as BIS?

this would be a great useful for those people who want to start their own website. it is my pleasure to be one of those people who commented on your resource. . thank you for give a opportunities… more power and best wished ..

I always look out for new tips and tricks. And here are plenty of advice. Thanks for posting. _Ray

I asked for my account to be discontinued, but am still getting a ping from Worldmate each time I make a reservation of any kind. That tells me Worldmate is still tracking my email address. I cannot access my account. The customer support page on the website asks me for reference number and activation code which I do not have.
There is no phone number on their website to call and request help.
I just need my email address deleted so I do not continue to receive the blank emails from Worldmate.
Please help.

This is good to read and I appreciate it that you shared something good. Thanks.
