    Trying to put together a Rookie Guide what should be included?

    Advertisement



    Hey all I'm just trying to put together a little thread to help out all the new Pearl users. It could help out other users as well, but since the Pearl is the model I have and it seems to get the most traffic I just wanted to consolidate the rookie questions into a thread. I'll be compiling this in my spare time and hopefully I can get it up within a week or two.

    What I need from you is the most commonly asked questions. Thanks ya'll!

    Excellent idea Red. I know a lot of Pearl users have questions about the speaker volume. Here's a great thread to use some information from in your Guide: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com..._8100_a-5.html. Good luck.

    Re: Trying to put together a Rookie Guide what should be included?

    It could serve two different things - not sure which you were thinking about - (1) common questions about using their new Pearl; or (2) common problems they are having with the new pearl and how too fix. also don't know if you are going to put all the info in one place or compile the useful threads dedicated to some of those answers.

    Some of the common questions about using new Pearl I've seen:

    (a) how to switch ringers for calls, sms, emails, etc.
    (b) how to transfer music and videos to pearl
    (c) how to load apps/themes
    (d) things to do free up some space ever so often (browser cache, logs-lglg; "delete prior" in messages, etc.)
    (e) no, you can't get youtube videos

    Some of the common problems I've seen: (i know there are already some threads dedicated to the individual answers though)

    (a) what to do when browsers disappear
    -----> and a side note to maybe include is how to send service books and why one would need to
    (b) what is the os; why would i want to upgrade; how/where do i upgrade
    (c) stop disappearing call logs
    (d) how to fill in APN settings

    it's a good idea red. hope some of that helps.

    Don't forget to include a note about the camera click sound and the one or two tricks around it.
