RIM’s BlackBerry OS “condenses” e-mail messages to reduce strain on wireless networks and speed up delivery. Flight Mode for BlackBerry downloads all additional content needed to view “truncated” BlackBerry e-mail before you turn off your device for flight. Just activate Flight Mode before your plane takes off, and the app downloads additional content, turns off wireless connections and powers down your BlackBerry. Turn it back on in-flight, and you’re good to go.
