View Full Version : what are "folders"?

06-07-2008, 10:04 PM
I assume that "folders" are for storing emails, but can't be sure. I take it "folders" is not a place to store drafts of compositions or memos from memopad, correct?

Truth is, I have created several folders with nice useful names but cannot see how one goes about putting anything in them! Does anyone here use them? For what?

Thank you.

They're for organizing the icons on your device. They're not for messages or any other data.
It's purely for icon arrangement and organization.

Thanks, penguin, but can you elaborate? Why would one want to "organize icons"? Do you download extra applications and the desktop gets crowded or something?

well for us organized folk, folders could be very cool. You coulod have all your IM and "social networking" icons in one folder. Email accounts in another, gps/mapping in another, and so on. I wouldnt say its the greatest feature, but hey...

Oh, I'm sure it's great. But to be honest, I don't even know what IM and social networking icons are, nor what other cool applications I could be downloading. I'm having enough trouble making the phone work! Not really, I'm getting there slowly. Thanks for any additional tips.

For instance, I have several games on my BB, and instead of 5-6 extra icons on the applications screen, I have a folder named "Games" with all those games moved into that folder.

For me, instead of hiding all of the icons that I don't use, I just move them to a folder I like to call, "Unused Icons" and just hide it. Then, when/if I want/need to use one of those icons, I go there instead of unhiding and searching through all of my icons.
