New to Blackberry! Some quick questions!
So I just purchased my first blackberry, the pearl, and so far I love it! I just had a few quick questions I was hoping someone could help me out with. First when I open an E-Mail that has images in it, I just get a long line of coding that I can click on instead of the picture. Is there a way to fix this? Also I've been reading some of the other threads and was curious as to why you would need to update the OS on the pearl. My final question, I just want to know how I've lived for the last few years with out this thing, I've only had it for 4 days and I'm already an addict. If you can help me I would sure appreiciate it, thanks!
Hey and welcome to PinStack
Im not sure about the email pictures but I say I'ts always a good idea to have an updated and the newest version as things get better and easier. For example in the newer version, the mute btn works better and the trackball works better and it saves more battery and also you are able to have a 2GB SD Card instead of only 1GB. Just things like that, you really dont have to update but I would sure recommend you do that.
Welcome to STACKS MaTT!!!
From what I'm understanding the only difference with the new update in addition to what peter just said is the auto dim feature is no longer availabe to disable. I also agree with having the newest updates can be key to a pleasant bb experiance!! Trust me as soon as I get my pearl plugged into my dm!! Once again congrats on your pearl!!
Hello MAwith2Ts, welcome to pinstack.
Welcome to the stacks man
MAwith2Ts, Welcome to PinStack.
That's the way the BB device is designed to work.
First when I open an E-Mail that has images in it, I just get a long line of coding that I can click on instead of the picture.
It is meant to give the user the option to download the image or not, and to save bandwidth and time for the initial email transmission. Some users do/did not have unlimited data and a single image could really eat into the limited amount that was available.
Let us know if there is anything we can do to help with your BB.
