BlackBerry is a line of mobile e-mail and smartphone devices developed by Canadian company BlackBerry Limited, formerly known as Research In Motion (RIM). Whilst including typical smartphone applications such as an address book, calendar and to-do lists, the BlackBerry is primarily known for its ability to send and receive Internet e-mail wherever it can access a mobile network of certain cellular phone carriers. The service is available in North America and in most European countries.

Desktop software

Barry

Install barryAUR. Barry is an application that provides backup and sync support for BlackBerry devices. As of 0.18.5, only devices older than the BlackBerry Z10 are supported. Synchronization support is provided via the OpenSync library. The Barry sources for versions 0.18.5 and below are available on sourceforge and Github.

Note: Barry synchronisation support is no longer available. The Barry opensync0.4x plugin has not built successfully since at least 2012 [1] and the OpenSync website is unreachable with no snapshots more recent than August 2014. Barry does still have backup and database view capabilities.

Sachesi

Install either sachesi-gitAUR or sachesi-binAUR. Sachesi is a tool for BlackBerry 10 devices allows one to install different versions of BB10 OS, make backups and restore from backups. Please see the forum thread on Crackberry for more information.
