    Just Got my Blackberry 8703e, couple questions !!

    Advertisement



    hey all, i just got my BB 8703e for verizon and i just had a couple of questions.

    1) how do i change the settings for the SOUNDS on text messages/e-mails/incoming calls?

    2) when i delete an e-mail from my BB, and click delete from both Mobile and Mailbox, when i sign into my gmail account on my computer, the message is still there. why is this ?

    3) i noticed that when i go to certain websites it wont let me go to it because "JavaScript is not enabled on this handheld." so is there any way i can access these websites ?

    4) how do i post from my BB to forums like pinstack ?

    5) whenever i send/recieve an e-mail i get a text message, how do i disable this ?

    thanks in advance !

    1) Go to Options>Sound Profiles (icon of a horn) and choose Phone/SMS/Messages (I think Level 1 is email) and select the sound you want.

    2) I don't know. Maybe someone else can answer this one.

    3) Try changing your settings to Internet Explorer in the Browser Configuration options.

    4) Download and install the Over The Air PinStack launcher using your BlackBerry browser. Then reply to any post just like you would from a PC.

    5) Turn off the Delivery Reports notification. Go to Options>SMS>Delivery Reports. Change On to Off.

    Log into your gmail.

    Go to settings...It will be at the top over towards the right hand side.

    Go to POP I believe it is.

    There should be an option that when your gmail gets popped, you can either let it stay in the gmail folder or it will auto delete.

    Do this...

    First off, on your homescreen...Look for an icon that looks like a horn.

    Easier way to do this if you don't want to scroll through all of those:

    Go Options-Screen/Keyboard...

    Scroll down to convenience keys...

    Make the side key your profiles...Save your changes.

    Exit out to the main screen.

    Click the button on the left hand side of the device.

    Your profiles will come up.

    Scroll down to ADVANCED at the bottom there and you can edit all of it there.

    Okay...Probably because either I am using ZEN or 4.2 OS that it's not the same..

    Scroll to the one you want to edit then click your trackwheel.

    You should have the option to edit them there right?

    Zen theme is where you will have 6 icons on your screen on the side of the screen, so that you can see your wallpaper in the background.

    There is a thread in the Themes section on how to get it, or, most operating systems (in fact I think all operating systems released in the last 3 months or so) have the zen theme pre-installed on them.

    Check verizon's BB page to see if you have the most current operating system loaded on your device.

    There is a good chance a newer one has been released since the device was made and been sitting on the shelves and it should give you ZEN>

    Sorry that was my fault for causing the confusion. I use the Zen themes (BB Dimension-Zen, and/or T-Mobile Zen). I should have asked before telling you how to get to it.

    For number 4, go to www.pinstack.com from your BlackBerry Browser and choose OTA (Over-The-Air) applications. I forgot which category it's under but it's called PinStack Launcher.
