    Top problems needed to fix on pearl

    Advertisement



    What is the best way of notifying RIM about the pearl's bugs? Will they actually listen and fix it?

    Well, here's the top things I want fixed on my phone. Feel free to add anything else you think should immediately get fixed. All I know is if they do an upgrade, and none of these things I list are fixed, I'm gonna go to the creators and throw my shoe at them.

    1. Texting bug for multitap style. Example: When I want "i", it types 2 "u" instead

    2. Disable the dialing tone as you dial. Even in vibrate/silent mode, when I dial a number, it still makes the dialing sounds.

    3. Make the volume buttons customizable. Example: I want to make it so that it adjusts my ringtone volume by pushing the volume up/down buttons. Also, would be great to have a larger scale of volume instead of low, medium, high.

    4. Update OS so that it uses less memory. My phone has that hourglass a lot when I do certain things. Yes, I close all my applications but it still acts slow. I have a 2gb card which I save everything to.

    5. Allow some way of controlling the media player from the home screen. When I play my songs, I sometimes exit to the homescreen and keep it playing. At that point, I can use the volume button to control how loud it is... I want to be able to also skip to the next song.

    6. PLEASE allow the phone to delete/disable logging of call history. IT IS FREAKIN ANNOYING. All of us have experienced a point where we have a significant other, and we don't want them knowing how often we call/receive calls from another person.

    7. Give the phone the ability to vibrate and ring at the same time. It's not much to ask for, my old school nokia 3390 with lotsa flashy button keys/battery/leds could do that 10 years ago.

    1 i use suretype, sorry
    2 not doable that I am aware of
    3 volume buttons only work during a call, or during music or video, cannot customize
    4 http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...are_links.html
    5 well you have to be in the media player to go to the next song
    6 call log > general options > phone list view > select a diff option
    or hide the icon all together (scroll to icon in home screen, press option button left of trackball, and scroll to hide)
    7 BB is not able to ring and buzz @ the same time, I think its a security feature to keep out bats.

    For number 6. If you catch your significant other looking at your call log, dump that b*tch!

    #2:

    Go to options> screen/keyboard. There's an option to turn off key tone. This turns off the beeps when you dial. With this off, the first button you use to dial will sound the standard key sound (occasionally), but the rest of the buttons you hit won't sound.

    #4 I agree partially although if given two choices I would rather much have them fix the memory leak issue so I don't have to remember to reset/batt pull every so often. No biggie though...it's gotten better with the newer os.

    #6 if you don't want your other to know, can't you just go into call logs and delete the person? I mean hit the dial key and simply highlight the person and scroll to delete It would eliminate all history too in a sec no? You can even go into sms call log and delete certain times that you talked to the person so if she doesn't believe your whole story you at least you can say you've only talked to her/him during certain hours about work and job related issues maybe might soften the blow but I digress....

    #7 would be nice too, but no biggie too for me I guess I'll only have my phone on vib and ring at a theme park or concert or something...

    What'd I really would like would be an integrated aim/msn like the blackberry messenger. Would be awesome!

    I'd like to also have a sent email folder (like the sms outbox) so at the end of the day I can just delete them all at one time instead of deleting them one by one. I also have my sent set on hide so I'd have to unhide first and delete it's kinda annoying....but eh. :/
