The BlackBerry is a versatile handheld device with many customisable features. BlackBerry themes and ringtones may be customised, as with other smartphones. However, one feature unique to the BlackBerry, "Audio Boost," enables the device to play audio files louder and with more full sound using headphones or external speakers. Audio Boost may be enabled on the BlackBerry to prompt the user when the volume button is pressed a few times after it reaches maximum.

    Press the "Menu" button on the BlackBerry.

    Scroll to and select the "Media" icon by pressing the trackball or trackpad.

  7. 7

    Select "Yes" to continue.

  8. 8

    Press the "Menu" key.

  9. 9

    Scroll to and select "Save." Audio Boost is enabled. To turn on the feature while speakers or headphones are connected to the device, turn the BlackBerry up to maximum volume, and then continue to press the Volume key two or three times. The Audio Boost notification will appear.
