    In Dire Need..

    Advertisement



    So I have a few basic questions, some of which you may consider stupid but regardless help would be appreciated.

    1. How do you change the notifier (sound) of recieving texts?

    2. I have yet to find an actual detailed walk through or helpful guide on how to attain and setup the 'color trackball'.. if you know of one or are willing to help, please let me know.



    Any information would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    You can change the notifications for SMS and each email address by going to profiles then advanced then to each profile (loud, vibrate, et cetera) each type of notification should be listed. Select the one you want to change and adjust the relevant settings.

    As far as the color trackball I believe it is an application you have to download.

    Good luck

    1. You can change the notifiers of many different actions in your Profiles (icon is a little speaker). Click it, scroll to Advanced, highlight the Profile you would like to change and choose Edit from the menu.
    2. There are directions here: http://www.geekandproud.net/blackberry-software/
    They are literally one sentence. It is a very easy install.

    Good luck!

    Thank you! I appreciate it a lot!

    I figured the trackball is somewhat more complicated, if anyone has more details on it, or where I can attain it, let me know.

    Re: In Dire Need..

    Yea, I recently read it but I suppose I'm just a little blonde when it comes to that stuff, so it still went over my head. I downloaded the OTA installation and linked my Blackberry to my PC, then wasn't really sure what to do.

    Don't feel obligated to help to moron! lmfao :cry: haha

    Re: In Dire Need..

    ok, if you downloaded it OTA you dont need to link it to your PC it's already on your bb directly... go to Options and then Advanced Options and then applications and tell me if it shows up?

    Re: In Dire Need..

    or as i am looking at my pearl now it shows up diurectly under Options.. No need to go to Advanced... If it doesnt show up, Do a battery pull...... pull out your battery and wait 30 secs, then pop it back in and let the BB reload. then look for it again....

    Re: In Dire Need..

    Okay, I did all of what you said. Check under options, advanced, and did the battery pull. Still nothing, lol.

    Is the OTA the only way to install it? Or does the desktop download work well too?
