    Newbie Questions

    Advertisement



    I'm a relatively new and very happy BBP 8100 user with some newbie questions:

    1. Is there any way to have the phone ring and vibrate at the same time? The phone setting seems to vibrate first and then ring. If it's not on my person and I don't feel the vibrations, I have few rings to answer the phone.

    2. Where are my Pearl's pictures on my computer?

    3. How do I delete a letter or letters when composing an e-mail? I put the cursor on a letter and backspace but that doesn't do it. I'm sure this is a really dumb question.

    4. My service provider is Cingular and my Pearl didn't update the time for DST. What do I do to get the time correct?

    Thanks for your help! This Pearl is way better than my Treo - I haven't been this happy with a cell phone ever!

    1. Click on profile, then on Advanced. Then click on Normal. Use the trackball to scroll down to phone, click on it. Then click on "out of holster" Tone. Click on Vibrate + Tone, click escape, save your changes.
    2.
    3. With the cursor ahead of the letter to be deleted, press the Del key!
    4. Don't know! I believe there are DST patches somewhere in this forum.

    That should get you to the Daylight Savings Patch

    I still don't understand question 2 though.
    Your pics should be where you put them on your computer.
    I guess the question to ask is, do you have a microSD card? Do you have mass storage enabled?

    Thanks for the responses - this place moves fast!

    1. Vibrate + tone isn't what I'm looking for since it vibrates first then tones What I want is a true Vibrate AND Tone at the same time from the first ring (or vibrate).

    2. I assumed the Pearl's pictures are synchronized to my computer as well as the phone since my Treo used to do that. I guess that's not the case with the Pearl? So do I e-mail the pics from my phone or I could always pull the MicroSD card and use a card reader to move them all. What do you do?

    3. I guess I'm not using the "delete" key correctly. I put the cursor on the letter so I'll put it to the right of the letter and back up over it (right?)

    4. Thanks for the patch!

    Just enable mass storage. Then your computer should be able to see it. It should come up as a removable drive on your computer.

    Thanks. I didn't know what Mass Storage is so I never enabled it.

    Appreciate all your help.

    Dan, we're all waiting for this option. Not here yet (unless someone else has happened upon it). Sorry.

    Any way to have a greeting where it says your service provider on the home screen
