    I've been wondering what is the tap interval?

    Does that work for emails as well?

    Storm Event Log and Alt + E A C E

    To bring up the Event log on the Storm, go to landscape and press and hold 123 to number lock. The press "/"/ to bring up the event log. Now for the Storms version of Alt + E A C E press 2*92. Hope this helps.

    The menu key seems to be even more functional than it used to be. You can use it to not only bring up a menu of course, but also to select whatever is highlight as well (variation of previous SMS menu 2 X tip, but covers the whole device)

    In calendar, your alarm now shows as well. Not too mention you can add multiple alarms from the calendar app (using the menu key). These will appear in the clock app also.

    Where are you performing this from? Doesn't work from the homescreen.
    You have two ears, two eyes, and one mouth;
    therefore, listen and observe twice as often as you speak.

    anyone know what the hover setting effects? I am assuming the amount of time that a key is highlighted. Is this correct?

    What do I do with the event log? I was able to bring it up, following your instructions. I seem to recall hearing someone way that deleting the event log may speed up the phone, however I'm not about to try it out. I'm guessing the event log is a log of all that has happened with the phone, correct? So it probably documents my frustrations for the past 3 days also, correct?

    While in the event log, use the menu key to Clear the log to free up some memory. You set the event log to not record any events and errors which helps memory a little bit. I did this with my previous BlackBerry.

    Are you struck with the only one theme blues?
    Don't fret, there is a little bit of snazziness you can add to
    differentiate your Storm from every one else's.

    Go to options > advanced options > Accessibility.
    Here you can adjust the contrast of your menus and icons.
    Set Contrast to Reverse for a funky light blue looking theme.
    Set Contrast to Greyscale for a Storm circa 1929.
    *(They both change most functions on the device as specified,
    sparring a few exceptions).

    +
    Your favorite app not working with the Storm? Before you give
    up all hope, check to see if it's running in compatibility mode.
    Options > advanced options > applications > highlight the app >
    press menu key and enable/disable compatibilty mode.
    I cannot guarantee a success for you, but it may help.

    +
    Can't wait to show off the pictures on your device at work,
    but you don't want your coworkers to know about the crazy weekend you had?
    No problem (as long as you use folders to file pictures on the media card)
    Media > Pictures > Menu Key > Exclude folders > select which folders to exclude.
    This will "hide" folders (and what's inside) on the BlackBerry when you select
    All pictures or Picture folders in media.
    *(you can still get to the hidden folders using the "explore" function, and
    the folders will not be hidden if browsing the microSD card from PC.)

    +
    Dang keyboard getting in your way or you hate using the menu key
    to get to it? Using a swipe motion from the bottom of the
    screen going up it will produce the keyboard. To hide it, do the
    opposite swipe starting at the middle of the top row of letters.
    Another time saver could be to assign the keyboard to a convenience key.

    +
    Super easy search in messages.
    Highlight the name of the sender of an email. Just highlight for a
    second or three. You'll see a status bar appear and all the
    emails from that person will show.

    That's all I have for now, time to get back to more Storm Experiments
    Once again, awesome thread...you are a "true Freak"... Thx again!!!!!!!!!! It helped me BIG time!!!!!!


    Compatibility Mode Rocks!!!!!
