Legal Tech: BlackBerry Mobile Voice System 5

By Peter LaSorsa This article is written from BlackBerry users, however if you own a different PDA, you may check with your manufacturer and see if a similar application is available for you. Research in Motion (“RIM “), the company that produces the BlackBerry, recently released version 5 to its BlackBerry Mobile Voice System (“MVS”). I know in our busy lives we can’t pay attention to each new release of each operating system for devices we own. However, this version 5 offers something that may be of interest to you and you may want to make sure this version is loaded on your phone. This particular feature allows voice over Wi-Fi calling. (i.e. the software lets users take calls from their BlackBerry using their desk phone numbers and extensions). This is an upgrade from the previous version of the software, which only allowed calls on the cellular network. Who cares? You should because a call placed on the cellular network in not secure - but a call placed with this new version is secure because it is being placed using your existing phone system. Another words the call will be as secure as if you were sitting at your desk in your office. An incoming call will ring your office phone and BlackBerry - ensuring you will always be incommunicado.
