Staying connected with the BlackBerry Hub


You can add practically any existing email account to your device—both work and web-based email.

Text messages (SMS/MMS)

If text messaging is a part of your wireless service plan, you can find and respond to your text messages in the

BlackBerry Hub.

Social networking

If you add a Facebook account to your device, you can receive and respond to notifications, update your status, and

send Facebook messages all from the BlackBerry Hub. If you add a Twitter account, you can compose tweets, stay

up-to-date on your mentions, and send direct messages. And if you add a LinkedIn account, you can accept

invitations to connect with business contacts, send messages to your connections, and update your LinkedIn status.

BBM and instant messaging

After you add instant messaging apps to your device, you can access your chats through the BlackBerry Hub.

Calls and voice mail

You can make calls directly from the BlackBerry Hub. The BlackBerry Hub shows you the calls that you made and

received, including any missed calls and voice mail messages.

Upcoming events

Without leaving the BlackBerry Hub, you can peek at upcoming meetings, events, and—if you add your Facebook

account—friends' birthdays.


The BlackBerry Hub collects your notifications about new PIN messages, time zone changes, software updates,

third-party apps, and more. Your service provider might send you SIM Toolkit notifications that appear in the

BlackBerry Hub. Tapping on these notifications opens the SIM Toolkit app.
