    Misc new user questions....

    Advertisement



    Great site, and thanks in advance for your help. T-Mobile support seems to just be getting their support scrip software installed... These are pretty simple, but can't hurt to ask:
    1. I am Bluetooth enabled, and have a Motorolla H700 headset. It seems that there is no "auto-recognition" feature, but that anytime after turning the phone off or the headset off, I need to go through the short, but still annoying, re-bonding procedure. Does the Pearl have some feature to make the bond permanent?
    2. What is the best setting, or combination of settings, to view the screen outdoors, in sunlight?
    3. I am assuming that the 8100, as a power saving feature, blanks the screen completely after a sert period, unlike the "always on" (with manual backlight) of the older BB models. Is there a feature to modify the duration of the screen being "on"?
    Thanks! Bill

    to answer questions 2 and 3, although im not sure if the pearl would be the same. try holding down the power botton for like 2 seconds and let go (not icon). that should make your screen brighter then the highest setting....works better for outdoor viewing.
    download and install BBLight in the downloads section, this will allow you to set your screen to be on and duration or always on. if you need anymore help, you can PIN me.

    if im wrong about any of this, someone please chime in

    I THINK if you set the bt earpiece as "trusted" it will auto pair. I don't have a bt earpiece anymore so I can not verify this.

    This will solve it. It's under the setup when you click on your Motorola H700, in the bluetooth menu screen...

    To answer question 3:

    Under Options - Screen/Keyboard, you should find an option called "Backlight Timeout". You can set this from 10 sec to 2 min.
