We need a step by step walk-through of how to sync your BB to your PC... using Outlook since that is the most common. That question get asked a lot.

Also, I think a nice list on the Main Page updated of all the models, and what major feature each specific model includes... i.e.:

8300 - Camera
8310 - Camera, GPS
8320 - Camera, WiFi

etc.

Default Video Conversion Guide

Lunk - Great work on the FAQs.

I've seen a lot of questions recently on video conversion for the 8100. The video conversion sticky is intimidating, at best, for somebody not too technically inclined. Since the new version of DM includes a Roxio Media Manager that will convert the videos as they are transferred, I did a short step-by-step writeup of how to install/use the DM with the Roxio Media Manager. I incorporated screenshots. Feel free to use my guide as you see fit. I hope someone finds this useful.

FAQ idea:

"I just got a BB. I've opened the box, inserted the sim card and battery. Now what do I do. Where do I start? What do I do first?"

Include things like "must have apps." That gets asked all the time.

I found this post with lots of links. Maybe it could be used somehow.

Default New FAQ Idea - e-mails disappearing with BIS...

How do we get this added to the FAQ? It happened to me and several others from this thread said they also were unable to locate the answer easily enough by searching the forums.

Emails keep erasing..memory is fine.

Well if you write it up, step by step, I'll post 'her up there.

(I also sent your trackball cleaning instructions to be posted, but because of the pictures, I could not/don't know how, to do myself.)

This one I can. It's a Wiki FAQ, so you actually could, but we have tried to restrict new pages to the Mods since it was getting spammed endlessly.

Thanks.

Lightbulb Recommendation for FAQ: apps/messages on memory card

From what I understand, messages and applications currently can't be stored on the BB's memory card. If that's the case I would recommend adding that tidbit to the FAQ in the following sections:

1.5 Media Card and General Media FAQ's
1.6 Applications and Operating System FAQ's

As a recent convert from the Treo world, one of the first things I looked for was how to tell the BB to store apps on the memory card, but I didn't find any info in the FAQ and was this close to posting a thread about it!

Red face forum FAQ - favourites

I'm new around here (in fact I'm not sure I've posted this to the right forum), but was wondering if there was some way to create a list of favourite threads/posts?

This would save me having to rerun a search and save time hunting for something particularly useful that doesn't already appear in the FAQs.
Many thanks.
