Product(s) Affected:

  • BlackBerry PlayBook tablets
  • BlackBerry Bridge for BlackBerry OS 7 and earlier
  • BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet

Messages that have not been sent can be resent from the BlackBerry® smartphone by scrolling down to the message, clicking the menu key and selecting resend (on touchscreen devices this is done by highlighting the message, touch and hold and select resend).

This same functionality does not exist on the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ when using the BlackBerry® Bridge™ Messages application.

The user interface of the BlackBerry Bridge Messages application does not have the option to resend a message.
This is a previously reported issue that is being investigated by our development team. A resolution is currently unavailable.
Resend the message from the BlackBerry smartphone. Once the message has been sent the change will be reflected in the BlackBerry Bridge Messages application.
