    To enter alpha digits in the phone app in order to use the #min# (voice usage) #msg# (Sms usage) or #bal# (billing) on t-mobile, hold dowm the alt key while entering letters in double-tap fashion (one click for z, two clicks for x, etc).

    This tip by FAR helps me out. I didn't know this one and had borrowed a friend's phone to look at the stuipd keypad. He laughed but now I can go back and just point out my BB is better at it was just a lack of knowledge on my part.

    I just bought my 8100 and am not allowed to see videos at all. When I try to, I get the message "Sorry! An unexpected error has occurred. This error has been forwarded to our technical group." Could anyone give me a few tips to help me fix this problem?

    Re: shortcuts for MP3 media

    Hi


    I was wondering about shorcuts for media music playing. I have read the above shortcut document as well as the 240 page big user guide. No where have I seen any instrutions on how to work the mp3 player. Details described on the shopblackberry.com site for a stereo headset say the player can do;
    Additional controls on your smartphone allow you to rewind, fast forward, skip between songs, change volume and more.
    Does anyone know how to do any of this whether with a headset or on the unit itself. (i can work the volume no problem from the unit, and i own the Jabra 220 headset and am not aware of how to use it to do anything other than pause)

    i'm sure I missed this -CAn anyone shed some light for me.

    Re: shortcuts/ Tips for the BlackBerry Pearl 8100

    you cannot download any themes for the Pearl right now - plazmic that is.
    nor can you download themes for the Pearl to your DM

    you can go to mobile.blackberry.com FROM YOUR PEARL browser
    they have four, i think, themes that you can download

    i downloaded the 'pink' theme...it is great! you can also send jpg's to your phone, already resized using this:
    http://www.blackberrywallpapers.com/upload.htm
    the pearl uses 240X260 but sometimes, the image looks better at 240X160
    save them and use them as your wallpaper

    Re: shortcuts/ Tips for the BlackBerry Pearl 8100

    danielle007, sbarnes1908, Welcome to PinStack.

    danielle007 - As cherri said, there are several 8100 themes on the BlackBerry Extras site, they are Plazmic theme, but not created with the Plazmic Theme Builder, which doesn't support the 8100 yet.

    sbarnes1908 - Can't help with Video, but wanted to welcome you anyway.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your BB.

    sbarnes, if you are trying to go to a video site, from your bb, i'm afraid you will not be able to watch/download the video.

    you can however download a video to your pc, convert it and then download/place on your Pearl to watch...
