more questions for gurus to answer:

1) i want to setup my aim, yahoo messenger, and google chat on my 8800. is there one app i can use for all of them? if not, what do i need for these 3 and where do i go to get them?

2) i know the ALT + u shortcut marks the selected messages as "read", does anyone know if there is a shortcut for marking ALL unread message as "read"?

3) Where can i go for different themes? Is there webpage of them? Also, I kind of like one of the themes already on the blackberry (Dimension Zen), but i want to change the background picture, can i do that easily or do i need to build my own theme?

4) if i have a program that can cut a portion of a 5 min mp3 song, can i use that as a ringtone? can i set different ringtones for different people? If not, is there an app out there that can do that or something similar?

All your questions can be answered with a little bit of searching our forums.

Q1: There are many apps out there for IM's. Check the Aftermarket Software Forum. click here (http://www.blackberryforums.com/aftermarket-software/)

Q2: I don't know the shortcut off hand (if there is one) but it's pretty easy to just highlight a date and select "Mark prior opened."

Q3: There are many many themes in the Themes/Ringtones/Wallpaper Forums. (http://www.blackberryforums.com/ringtones-themes-wallpaper-discussion/) Here is a link to a sticky in that thread that instructs you on how to add more themes to your BB: Themes (http://www.blackberryforums.com/ringtones-themes-wallpaper-discussion/28821-blackberry-alx-edited-files-packaged-theme-installation-4-1-4-2-only.html)

Yes, you can change the pic in the background. Go to >Media >Pictures >Choose a picture and select "set as background image."

Q4: Use the program of your choice to edit your mp3. Then use Media Manager in Desktop Manager to transfer your mp3 over to the BB. There is a file size limit if you are not putting it on a microSD media card. I think it's around 2.5 Mb (something close to that)

4) i don't think there's a time limit. i have a full 4:30 minute song as a ring tone on mine. just make sure you put the ring tone in the right folder. (ie. ringtones, not music or pictures or top level)
