Hi all ~
Just got my new Pearl on Monday and am having lots of ... BlackBerry Pearl forum
bb noob - does this app exist?
Hi all ~
Just got my new Pearl on Monday and am having lots of fun so far. Wish I had more time to play with it actually but the darn family keeps wanting to EAT and have clean clothes and stuff!
This is my first bb, first more-than-super-basic cell phone period. But I have used my PDAs faithfully for years. I am thinking I may end up abandoning my Tungsten E2 for the Pearl, although its hard to imagine.
The one thing I am lacking thus far in the Pearl that I use frequently on my E2 is a program called Handyshopper. It can be used for tons more things that shopping lists, I use it in a variety of situations. I installed iJuggle last night but am finding documentation on it hard to come by and thus far it does not seem to come CLOSE to Handyshopper. I can't seem to sort my lists in different ways, or save items to re-access later on.
Does anyone know of a good program that might accomplish this? I am kinda bummed I paid $10 or $15 for this, didnt realize until after that there was a free trail. And maybe there are features I have not happened upon yet, but so far it seems not enough for my needs. This is the one thing that will hold me back from completely coverting from my E2 at this point.
Also a very dumb question but I cannot seem to figure it out. I have configured all kinds of in depth things over the last few days but cannot figure outo how/where to change my notifications? As in, when I get a new email message, the light blinks but I get no sound or at least I have not heard it lol. Where in sam hill is this setting??? I thought maybe profiles but I don't see where/how to change sounds for certain things?
TIA... I am readig here as much as time allows and its a huge resource!
All I have to do now is decide how I am going to transport this - I don't like it banging around in my purse, and even tho its smallish, it does not feel comfortable in my pocket, esp with tighter jeans on or whatever. I have rad about skins and also wallets for them but have not decided what would be best for me. But I will keep reading everyone's experiences...
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ to change the sounds or notifications go to profile. It should allow u to make changes there.
Check out handango for software. I know there is a shopping program I tried out once. There is also Pocket Day Lists which let's u make and keep all kinds of lists, including shopping.
Welcome to the Stacks Stacy.
Have you looked at this software:

If the kids are hungry enough, they will feed themselves!
As for Profiles, open that up, then scroll all the way down to "advanced". This is not obvious as it is actually hidden because of the need to scroll.
Once in advanced, you can change just about every sound for any action which occurs, and you can edit the default profiles to fit your tastes, or create new profiles.
It's quite robust!
Thanks for the welcome, all!
Got it on the notifications - that was just it, I didn't realize the Advanced was even DOWN there lol! All set now on that.
And Shopmagic may be just what I am looking for, I downloaded a free 14 day trial to check it out. I had done some searching but I was being dimiwitted and only searching for apps for the Pearl, not thinking that there are other bb apps that will work for our newcomer.
And lol Lewis you must have kids! MY thoughts exactly! And clean clothes EVERY day are wayyy overrated!
Thanks again, I look forward to working my way all thru these forums as time allows...
