Cortado Flight Mode for BlackBerry

RIM's BlackBerry OS "condenses" e-mail messages to reduce strain on wireless networks and speed up delivery. That's all fine and good. But there's nothing more frustrating than trying to read an important e-mail in-flight only to find it was cut off mid-message. Cortado's $3 Flight Mode app for BlackBerry downloads all additional content needed to view "truncated" or shortened BlackBerry e-mail before you turn off your device for flight. Simply activate Flight Mode before your flight takes off, and the app downloads additional content, turns off wireless connections and powers down your BlackBerry. Turn it back on when the pilot gives the okay, and you're good to go.

Purchase Cortado Flight Mode from BlackBerry App World.
