It is not DNS Server just DNS.

DNS : Stands for "Domain Name Server", it holds information that which domain name is equivalent to which IP address. For example:

www.google.com = 173.194.35.0
www.cssforum.com.pk = 64.31.31.91

The term BlackBerry is used for handheld devices not for their Operating system. When you say BlackBerry you mean a device. For an Operating system used by a BlackBerry, terms such as "BlackBerry OS", "BlackBerry 10", "BlackBerry OS 7", are used.

Plus Spell Mistake:

Operting=Operating
Reseach=Research
