    Please Help >.<

    I am very technology dumb, so please spare me....
    I just got my White BlackBerry today and is having some hard time figuring out how things work

    1) I use to own a Slvr. So I already have a memory card. But when I put it into my BlackBerry it doesn't work. I mean does a BlackBerry need it's very own seperate card? I asked someone and they said it should work I just have to "REFORMAT" the memory card. But the thing is how do you reformat it?

    2) I still don't know how to change the wallpaper and ringtone. How do I do that?

    3) Is there a way to change those options at the bottom of the screen. I have no idea what it is called but it is like a taskbar containing five options. Is there a way I can change those five to something else?

    ** I read the manual and everything but it doesn't answer my questions. Please help me. Thank you in advance!

    If you wanna change the order of the icons, just press the menu button (the little blackberry) and move the trackball to highlight the icon you want moved. Then press the menu button agin and select either move or hide application... your first five icons in the full menu will show up either in your mini menu on the side or along the bottom depending on which theme you have installed!

    to change ringtone either listen to a song and press the trackball option button and
    select "set as ringtone" or change using profiles
    (top right of home screen.)
    profiles> scroll to bottom > select advanced> scroll to profile you wish to edit and
    press left trackball option button> scoll to edit.
    all kinds of stuff you can set different sounds for
    Calender, IM, Email, MMS, SMS, Phonecalls, Tasks

    ^^ wow guys! i guess i type super slow? lol

    kimn - welcome to pinstack!

    you can change what appears at the bottom of your screen (your task bar ) by clicking menu (the key to the left of the trackball) and scrolling all the way down to the bottom.

    do you have a data plan? the easiest way to get ringtones is simply by using your browser to visit a website with ringtones (www.mobile41.com or www.tuneusin.com), clicking on the ringtone you want, while playing/when its finished, click menu and save it into your ringtone folder.

    to put wallpaper on your device, you can do the same thing by visiting pinstack from your bb (wap.pinstack.com), go to the 8100 wallpaper thread and find the wallpaper you want. select the image, click menu and save to your image folder.

    Are you looking for them when the phone is still connected to your PC? If you are, you won't be able to access your media card when it is connected to your PC. Disconnect it and your music should be Under Media, Music, Media Card. Hope that helps.

    Its great that you guys are so helpful but um doesn't it get boring repeating the most obvious steps to the most mundane tasks? I mean a pearl is not a good purchase for a 1st time electronics user
