    New to BB and the Pearl

    Advertisement



    Well my dad had one since forever one of the big bulky ones i just used it a couple of times and i didn't like it cuz of its size but i loved the features. Now the pearl is another thing is just awesome, i love it, i pretty much figure most of the stuff by myself, but of course i have some noob questions about it, the first one is how can i get rid of the "preloaded media" tha is locked and is using space and i'm not going to use it. I was able to delete the locked media from my moto razr with some software, but BB are different. second i been trying to find out but i can't... everytime some calls me it rings for like 5 seconds and then it goes to my voice mail, i'm loosing many calls beacuse of that. do you know how to make the ring last longer???

    well i will have more questions as the time goes on...

    thanks

    OK! So check it out!
    This is from a previous thread:
    Quote Originally Posted by Spamdumpster
    Lots of threads about memory issues, deleted phone logs, and emails, etc. Many of these issues may result from low available memory on the Pearl. The Pearl OS is very heavy compared with 4.1, and yet the device still only has 64 MB.

    You can significantly increase the available memory by uninstalling various things from the Pearl. When I restart my Pearl, I have about 43 MB free, and I have 9 third party apps installed: Googletalk, Googlemaps, newsclip, spider solitaire, freecell, klondike, operamini, quickplayer, and RSAsecuretoken.

    It's best to do this when upgrading the device to a new OS. For example, if you delete preloaded pictures (see step 5, below), they still show up as 0k files in the pictured folder. If you delete them when you reinstall the entire OS, they won't.

    Not all of these steps need be followed, picking and choosing will work too. Where I say to delete a file below, it's probably better just to copy it into a new folder so that you can restore it if necessary. Whenever you want to implement the changes, simply run the apploader.

    Back up your device first. No need to modify your .alx file, simply follow the steps below.

    (1) If you have a media card, go into the options in the media app and change "reserved pictures memory" to 0M. Even if you don't have a card, consider lowering the number to conserve memory. Savings = up to 10 MB.

    (2) Delete the unnecessary language files. You can do it through options> advanced>applications, but the better, cleaner way to do it is through the apploader. When a new OS is installed on the PC (not the device) the .cod files are contained in the java folder at (for OS .69) program files/common files/research in motion/shared/loader files/8100-v4.2.0.69_P2.2.0.40.

    There are approx. 400 files, if you only want english, delete any file with the following at the end of the file name: __pt, __pt_BR, __fr, __it, __de, __nl, __en_GB, __es, __es_MX, __ca, and __tr. Also delete all files with dynamic_ling (except for the English files). For os .69 there are a total of 186 language files totaling 12.4 MB that can be deleted in this manner. Plus, delete the .cod files for korean and semitic language support.

    (3) Delete the .cod files with any themes (net_rim_theme_...) you don't use. BUT DO NOT DELETE THE ZEN THEME. By deleting the Cingular theme and the dimension icon theme I saved another MB.

    (4) Delete the preloaded video, by deleting the .cod file: net_rim_bb_medialoader_video.cod. Savings = 2.4 MB.

    (5) Delete the preloaded pictures by deleting the files: net_rim_bb_media_240x260_b.cod and net_rim_bb_media_100_240x260.cod. Savings = 3.5 MB.

    (6) Delete the preloaded ringtones by deleting the file: net_rim_bb_profiles_tunes_tunebundles_tunes8700g.c od. Savings = 280k.

    Total memory savings is about 30MB. If you don't use PTT on Cingular, delete those .cod files as well (they say ptt in them). If you don't play brickbreaker delete it. If you don't use the maps application delete it.

    Keep in mind, however, that some strange things can happen when certain apps are deleted. For example, I deleted the memo pad and tasks on my 7130 and BBcorrector wouldn't work. It's probably best to follow these steps one at a time, so that you'll know which step to undo if a problem arises. Obviously, by messing with the OS files, you could turn your device into a nice Christmas tree ornament, and I take no responsibility if you do that. In discovering all of these steps, I bricked my device twice. However, I simply undid my previous step (i.e., restore some .cod files) reran the apploader and everything turned out fine.

    Proceed at your own risk (thanks sniper) and PM me with any questions.
    I would've given a simple link, but I don't know how to do that!
    Hahaha!
    So yeah, just check out all the old threads, and the answers are right there...
    It may take a while, it took me a while to find this one, but yeah!
    Good luck!

    ok i been looking but i can find the option of vibe on the profiles, i have another question everytime i try to unlock the keyborad is asking me for my password, there is any way can set the password just for like when i reset or turn on the bb instead of everytime i lcok the keyboard. also i've been trying to use the blue tooth with the voice activation of the bb but everytime i puch the button of the blue tooth it redials the las number instead of promptping the voice feature, do i have to set the voice feature to the blue thoot (if yes how) or depends on the brand of the bt and that?


    and by the way thank you sooooo much guys

    on the pearl go to profiles>advanced whatever profile you want to change click on it and it brings up a new menu with tones vibrate etc.
    under options>security>general settings is password put it to disabled.
    as far as the bluetooth, mine is the same way, button is last called. someone should be around soon. not a prob for me cuz I haven't found one I like.

    your sooooo welcome LOL

    ** beat me to it!!!!

    Ok, under menu, profiles, advanced, click the menu key over the one you are trying to change. Click edit, phone, 5th option down is teh number of vibrations that can be set. Also check to see if it's on "Tone" or "Vibrate + Tone" which really means vibrate then tone.

    You can turn on the keylock on and off without a password. But requires teh password to be turned off. Then to lock the keypad, hold down */sym. To unlock, press */sym then green phone icon.

    I'm not too sure about the bluetooth though, since I have not used it yet on mine.
