    Instant Messaging Question

    Advertisement



    First of all I own the Red Pearl. I use the blackberry messaging and have 4 contacts listed. Now my question is why are 2 of these contacts Italicized and the other 2 are bolded? The 2 that are bolded I haven't had a conversation with in a week, but the other 2 I recently had IM conversations with a couple of days ago. Does it take a while for the italics to go away?

    Also, I haven't got my voice dialing to work, yet my wife's works great (same model of blackberry). I have literally spent hours on it trying to get it to recognize the names in my address book, but no luck. I did the adapt digits trick, but it seemed to make it worse. I pronounce very clearly, yet when the name is repeated it sounds as if the recording has a mouthful of marbles in it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Jim.

    Italicized usually means they are on the phone or are just not available... sort of like an idle feature, i suppose. if they are on the phone you will see a change in the smiley face icon by their name (i can't remember what it shows), also sometimes there will be a clock displayed on the face.

    Regarding the icons and italicized, Brooke's right. They could be idle. Ususally if on the phone you see an image like this )) showing like a speaker sound or something. I have had conversations with someone and suddenly they are italicized, most of time idled.. The clock shows when busy.

    As far as voice dialing, never set it up on my pearl.. sorry

    ok as for voice dialing.... i never really had to do anything to set it up but have you tried these?

    Is it in the right language? options >language
    or
    tried different settings? options >voice dialing

    Other than this don't know what to tell you.... good luck!

    rather than starting a new thread i figured i'd ask here..

    when using a program like RambleIM, my sms messages per month aren't used right? its just strictly through the blackberry internet plan?
