    Questions with my new Pearl

    Advertisement



    Some questions about my newly bought Pearl (8100):

    • What will the 4.3 offer as of right now? Will it have an option for full size videos if not
    is there anything free I can use that's easy and simple?

    • Also is there an ever-possibility that we will be able to record videos on our pearls?

    • What is the difference between BIM/BEM and how can I check what I have?

    • Is there a way to make the ringtone quality better? My dash made it sound crystal clear

    • The only way to kill programs on Pearl is to hold alt+esc and after that I just open one
    and close it with the left menu?

    • Is there a way to change the color of my keypad? I've heard something about the setting
    in the security options, but found nothing that sort. I recall it had something to do with
    BEM? Refer to point #3.

    • Is there a way to make the picture quality look better? For some reason even my sisters
    phone has better, brighter camera look and we got our phones the same exact day and place?

    Settings:

    Default Flash Setting: Automatic
    White Balance: Automatic
    Picture Size Medium (Had the standard, Large, but that made it even worse)
    Pic Quality: Fine (had it on normal and super fine, didn't do much)

    Any additional options I may have forgotten to look at? I'm fairly new with this phone.

    Thanks in advance, the phone by the way is great.

    I think you mean BIS and BES. Basically, if you bought the phone and pay for it yourself, then you are on BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service. If your company provided your phone and supply you with email and internet then you are on BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Service)

    Will have to have someone with an 8100 answer that. I have audio boost on my 8130 so the sound is quite good and loud.

    The only way I know of is to remove the keypad and color the LED the color you want with a light marker. I don't recommend it though, others may. Read about it in this thread: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ur_keypad.html

    Check for a dirty camera lens, clean it with a light alcohol on a Q-tip. If that does not help and you just got it, return it for one that works better.

    Re: Questions with my new Pearl

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~the way that I made my Ringtones sound better is to remove the battery cover and drill small holes in the cover where the speaker is. I was at the at&t store the other day and played a ringtone and the manager asked how I got it to sound better and was amazed at the difference. You can try that,hope that helps.
