Default New Pearl owner, need a little help...

Please Login to Remove!

I just picked up a Blackberry Pearl, and I am having a few issues with it (that I am sure cna be blamed on me). I've gone through the manual, but still haven't been able to figure out a few things.

First, the phone will only vibrate when I set the ring profile to "Loud". It will show active, but still only vibrates. Normal works fine, and the vibrate profile vibrates as its supposed to (just not the "loud" setting).

Second, is there away to completely do away with the icons on the home screen, and simply have them pop up when you select the menu?

Thanks!

For vibrate, you have to select Vibrate + Tone for the Out of Holster and In Holster portions of the Phone category in the active profile.

That's that's the default for Loud, but not for Normal unless you change it.

For your icon thingy, you want to look into themes. I'm not sure which will do it, but it's out there. Note that themes can take a lot of space.

Thanks for the info, but I am still a little confused. I have tried setting the Profile to Loud, and it will show up as such on the screen, but it still vibrates when receiving a call.

For your icon question. Go to Options>Themes and try out the ones there.

Zen may be closest.
