    Smile Stupid Question

    Advertisement



    Hi all, I'm new here- My husband bought me the BB Pearl 8100 on E-bay and it didn't come with an instruction manual so I'm completely lost... I finally figured out how to change the ringtone but I can't figure out how to put my phone on Silent and change the volume of the rings??

    And also, I am not currently paying for the BB service, so I do not have any internet - How much extra does it normally cost per month to add it onto my bill??

    Thanks,
    Danielle

    Re: Stupid Question

    go to profile-select silent(to put the phone on slient)

    to change the volume,click on the profile icon,scroll to the profile you want,click on the menu button and select edit....then got to whichever email ,call or application and select edit ...there you can see volume and select from mute,low,medium and high.

    as for data plans......depends on whic carrier youre on but sprint charges $39.99 for an unlimited data plan......hope this helps

    Re: Stupid Question

    Go to Profiles and choose Quiet. On the right of your bb, there's a + and - sign to change the volume.
    Well about the cost, it depends on the carrier. Feel free to ask around..sure they'll provide you some info. Good luck and Welcome to pinstack!

    Thanks! - I have AT&T.... Is the $39.99 added on top of what your already paying for the phone each month?

    Hello. Sorry can't answer about the data plan service but can try with the helping on the Blackberry.
    If you go through the Blackberry own website there is a downloadable version of the pearl user manual.
    Hope it helps.

    I'm only paying 35 a month. 30 for data plan and 5 for 200 txt messages. (on TOP of voice plan) I dont need that many txt messages since I use BB messenger and dont associate with anyone that doesnt use a blackberry....(Sorry DAD!)
