Q5 Trivia:

This phone allows you to adjust earpiece sound type. The earpiece output can be configured for default, treble or bass sound. Really good to know that if offers choice.

Go to calls > swipe finger from top of the screen > Call Audio .....and there you can find the setting!!

So enjoy Q5!!!

It looks so ugly, where is the beauty of the old javlin and the chrome accents??? we need pretty phones not dull ones, I hope to see a curve like the 9360 with the OS 10 and a bit bigger screen and of course a good battery like the one in the q5.

Got my q5 last week and after two days I sold it. Based on the reviews the battery was good. To my experience, it was worst than the z10! It drains really fast. Another problem I encountered was during making text message. It always says no contact and yet I have already synced my contacts. Then after a few seconds then the names of the contacts would appear. Im so disappointed. But I like the form factor. It just doesnt function well and battery life is really bad.

When i started using Q5 it automatically triggered Blackberry connection....but then i unsubscribed it by following unsubcription procedure.....so my service provider unsubscribed it. Now i am enjoying the normal internet package. However sometime it shows me blackberry icon but i am not charged for it.

1. For enterprise server - I think following article will help you to set up:
GSMArena BB Q5 review, page - 4 . It mentions how to use Enterprise Server.
2. For call management: it has a different menu, follow these steps - from Home screen - press "Call" icon, then when call log is displayed, swipe down your finger from top of screen, a menu will be displayed with "Setting" icon. Click that "Setting" icon and whole menu related to Call Management will be displayed...enjoy!!
3. Camera zoom: Go to camera.....image will be displayed....pinch-out....it will zoom-out....pinch-in ...then it will zoom-in. Easiest way to use camera zoom....can't have been made easier :-)
4. Equalizer - I miss it too :-( ....but use a good pair of earphones....it really sounds nice to me...yeah but it is my personal opinion.

Enjoy!!
