    Just Got it! Couple of Questions

    Advertisement



    Heyyyy guys whats up, i just got my pearl and i LOVE it, sickest phone ever. I just have a couple of questions about it, your answers are greatly appreciated.

    1. Can anyone post up a link where i can buy some headphones that have the plug that fits in the pearl's port? i was under the impression that it was a normal headphone port

    2. how does the back cover come off? i dont wanna break it

    3. Did your blackberry come with instructions or anything? mine just came with a couple of wires and the phone...weird

    thanks

    1. here for $30

    2. i take a pen cap and push down and up, it opens -- it is a pain though

    3. mine came with a manuel, but it is useless...doesn't really tell you much besides this button sends, this button ends, etc.

    can't buy those headphones til October 30, though. sorry...didn't mention that. i'm sure there are other ones available or you could buy an adapter that fits -- but with those, it has a mic, so you can make calls with them too, which is kinda cool.

    yeah, i guess that's the new "wave"...packaging the documentation (which is getting thicker and thicker) on CD.

    As for headphones, you can look for a 2.5 to 3.5mm adopter online if you have headphones that you want to use, or you can pick up a set at Bestbuy or any T-mo, Cingular, or Verizon store.

    As for the cover, I just use my hands. It's a pain because the cover is so slick, but I just got the BestSkinsEver (I highly recommend this) and this makes it much easier to handle the phone, as well as to take the cover off.

    it might be the USB driver(s) on your desktop. Do you have another computer to try connecting to?

    I get this message sometimes when I'm connecting to my laptop. Try connecting to a desktop computer and see if you still get the message.

    Do you need a 2.5 to 3.5 or a 3.5 to 2.5 adaptor?

    couple more questions:

    1. how do i work the GPS? its saying i need to connect a bluetooth device?? You need to get a GPS dongle or device or whatever they want to call it...Pretty much an extra piece of equipment and more money to spend.

    2. is your "send" button a little in mor ethan the others, and like hard to press? Yeah, kinda sorta, but not enough to notice.

    3. does anyone know of a program that you can copy your contacts from a nextel phone onto the pearl? I would assume copy them to your sim, but its gonna take forever to reload them. You can do it manually and get some practice using suretype.

    thanks in advance fellas
    Don't forget the ladies too!
