I got a new icon yesterday on my phone, usualy where any emails or facebook msgs are shown on the home screen.I've never seen it before and nobody can seem to help me. Does anybody know where I can get some icon decriptions????
Do you need a black berry service to open a yahoo/gmail account or regular internet connection is good to open mail account? Please confirm me. Thanks
I just purchased the BB Bold 9700 R from http://www.superreys.com , and it really is awesome!! I cant wait to tell my friends about this, service and quality a 2 thumbs up!!
is it true that transferring stuff via bluetooth using a blackberry phone can only be sent to another blackberry?? an not to another brand wit bluetooth???
Hi all. I've just upgraded to the 9700 after 2 years of an absolute dog of a phone (Samsung F700),and its been a joyous couple of days. I'm reasonably happy with most things on th phone,tho the photo quality is disappointing to say the least...bless u Sony Ericsson W900i for spoiling me with the most beautifully balanced sepia shots.
I havnt had the phone long enough to work its juju,but my biggest frustration comes in the form of the MMS feature. The 9700 doesn't indicate or give you an option to view the size of an MMS being drafted. This often means my MMS' are too large to be sent via my local network (Vodacom). Secondly,when I start drafting an MMS with text,then add a photo later,the resize option screen doesn't appear...only if I start with attaching a photo first will it appear.
This may seem like I'm knit picking,but I'm engaged in photography as a hobby,so I very often need to distribute MMS' and the lack of the above really sours my experience.I've had smarter normal phones with this feature,so no 'smart' in smartphone here. I'd truly appreciate if someone can help me out on figuring out a way to keep track of an MMS size.
Otherwise,the phone has been a revelation in terms of my communications and information seeking activites. I've even gotten around to learning to dart my way around the smallish keys,inspite of having fingers which don't classify in the small catagory. A brilliant little feature is the ability to change the horizontal and vertical plane sensitivity levels of the trackpad...does wonders for when one's hands fingers are not feeling their usual selves.
Otherwise,will keep you informed to more of the 9700's ways...all in good time folks.

But you need to activate you GPS Location and that should be through having Service plan...!!!:)
Just want to know if a third party application like google maps and worldmate live is a network dependent application (meaning you cannot use it unless you are connected in your network provider) or i can use it thru wifi connection only.
I have a question, does anybody know if you can install TOMTOM on it? Or something similar to that?
I really need to know this...

You may actually be close to the problem.
I had to go home and collect the headset. When i plug it in, a song automatically starts playing from my media even while i am trying to make a call. Then i closed everything.
WIth the headset inserted, the problem stopped but when i pull it out it continues.
Then i plugged in the charger and i removed the headset and the problem stopped.
What do i do when i open i get to the settings in the media icon?
