Hi all my wife has just got the the BB curve 8520 and is having issues trying to watch videos on You Tube, we have also set up a wifi link. However she can stream on WAP however when she switches to wifi mode (which should be miles faster all she gets is an error after the video as downloaded and she cannot watch it.

Any help would be great.

To re-organize your 6 short cuts just open the full menu and switch them with whatever you want, I have Messages, Sms/Mms, Calender, Browser, Facebook and Msn Messenger. Hope that this helps!

Well, my friend sold his Bold. I'm still keeping my Gemini, but I don't think I'll get my plan yet. I need to decide if I'm willing to stay locked to nothing but Blackerry phones or getting a 3G plan and being free to change phones whenever I please... Looking at the Samsung Jet, iPhone 3GS or Palm Pre.

> In reply to Amit @ 2009-12-09 14:21 from Trpx - click to readi know how to copy contacts from nokia to BB. First, mark all contacts in your nokia fone then send it via bluetooth to your pc. then drag the contacts from ur pc to outlook. Then install BB device manager. Sync your BB via usb to your pc. Click sync on the BB device manager. it should be able to transfer and sync contacts from your outlook to your BB :)
