Default Introduction & a couple of quick questions...

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all! After roughly 5 years of Treo (650 & 680) I opted to give the 8900 a try! So far so GREAT! All I really miss is the touchscreen! (keep reaching for my stylus!) And my 3rd party apps that I had already paid for on the Treo... But I will take care of that once I get all of my standard things in order. Now to my questions;

1) My wi-fi router at home is using "WPA Personal" security and that is not listed in wi-fi security options on my .. Is there a setting I can use without having to reconfigure my entire wi-fi setup at home?

2) I have all of my contacts synced thru Entourage on my Mac. Since Mac s'ware doesn't come out for the BB until September, is there a way to get my contacts into my new device short of copying them 1 by 1 to the sim? I have tried to "beam" via BT but that fails time after time! And not just in this instance.. I have ALWAYS had a difficulty time beaming contacts using BT even on the Treo! I suspect I am doing something wrong! If someone has a link or procedure that they think will help me to get this accomplished please do let me know!

3) Am I just over looking the "Home Page/Main Screen" option when I try to change the side button assignment? (comes assigned to camera out of box)

After I get these issues resolved I will be posting ref. profiles and folders in the future.

I look forward to reading the responses to these questions and getting to utilize even more functions on my new toy! And better understanding the why's & how's of the 8900 like I had on the Treo devices! Thanks for your time! ~FAT
