Is Your Blackberry Battery Too Low For Radio Use? Not Really.

26 October 2012 by Oo Nwoye

It always happens to the best of us. When you are are about to send that final important message, your Blackberry battery shuts down on you and goes

“Battery too low for radio use”

Actually, that is not entirely true. My good friend Sir Diddles showed me a bad ass trick. Once that message comes up, simply dial 911 and watch your battery come back to life for another 5 mins or so.

Yeah yeah.. thank me later.

Do you know any other interesting phone hacks? Donโ€™t tell me *#06# o!

PS: You would notice that I could have explained all that in a Tweet and did not need 3 paragraphs. However I did so for 3 reasons.

  1. To use style and let everyone know once and forall I am using a BB. Yes, I am ashamed of myself.
  2. To jump-start my blogging again
  3. Because I can ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Much better here than in Twitter’s deafening information waterfall where it’s half-life would have been 30 seconds.

    • Yes o! Twitter is a black hole.

  • Blackberry? What is that??

    • Haha..

      BB’s REAL strength is far from being the phone. It is the data package. They are by far the cheapest ISP in Nigeria.

  • Ostin

    Good point; can’t work in the US though. I’ll receive a call back from the local/closest police dept due to E911

    • I cut it before it tries to ring.

    Dont get too used to this hack though. Your battery would get completely drained reducing the “Juice’ in it everytime you do this, and eventually ruining it. When you see that message, its actually time to charge your battery if you want to retain its ‘lifetime’

    • I agree with you. It is supposed to be in case of emergency even though the emergency does not warrant calling 911.
      Abuse at your peril.
