    AT&T's DriveMode App For BlackBerry



    AT&T wants to know if the last text message you received is worth the chance of possibly getting into a vehicle collision and harming yourself or someone else. More likely than not, the answer would be "no". AT&T is striving to change the views of people about texting and driving. The risk factors of taking your eyes off the road for even just a few seconds to respond are not comparable to doing your best to ensure the safety of all the drivers on the road by not using your phone while driving. Now there's an app that can help take away the temptation to check your phone: AT&T's DriveMode App for BlackBerry.
    • You have a customizable "Allow List" of up to five contacts of your choosing to keep the ability to make and receive calls while DriveMode is enabled.
    • The app allows you to have one (1) music app and one (1) navigation app open when DriveMode is enabled.
    • By downloading DriveMode, participants are automatically signing AT&T's It Can Wait pledge to not text and drive.
    • Once DriveMode is disabled, you will be able to text, call, tweet, email, and play with your apps as usual.
    So join the fight to stop texting and driving by downloading this app today. Use it, love it, pass it on and save a life. Help AT&T and all those who have signed the pledge by downloading the app to make the roads a safer place for everyone.

    I am not 100% sure how I feel about this... Its just more tech taking over more tech. Where is the human brain in all of this. I dont need an app to help me not text and drive. Others shouldn't either. I applaud AT&T, but i know if it will be popular. We shall see!

    I'm not sure that the families of the people who have died from collisions resulting from texting and driving, no matter whose fault it was, would agree with you. As for the brains, if someone is going to make the conscious decision to still jeopardize the safety for their own self and the others around them, I'm not sure there would be any brain functioning happening. So congrats for saying you can decide not to on your own, but not everyone has that ability nor are they you.

    My favorite is texting and eating a burger with the music turned up while driving.

    Now boys, yall ain't got nothing on me. Try answering BlackBerry notifications, eating breakfast and putting makeup on while driving. Oh and the rare occasion of actually having to get dressed on the way to class. Been there, done that, have that bumper sticker.

    I think women are better drivers when they are putting on make-up. Its one of the only times they are at full attention.

    I'll try this app.... I also tend pay too much attention to notifications going off.
