Default more BB ? from a rookie

Please Login to Remove!

Tracker ball:
1. set the speed to be around 90

2. say i am in the menus and i move from left to right, should the focus automatically come to the next row and move along next row? At present when i reach the end of a row i have to move the track ball vertically and then move horizontally.

I also notice a lag when i am moving between word to word when comping a message. seems the tracker doesnt jump between words as fast as its moving

3. as my 810 from vzw is out of the box since saturday, are there any new OS updates?

4. is there an easy way to delete all messages at one go rather then individual ones?

i know most of these questions have been answered.

5. any fun applications to get? jive talk..heard mixed reviews.

6. i still notice an echo when i speak. seems more like speaking in a tin can..VZW says things seem fine. maybe its my unit as one of my co-worker has same issue. may change phone in 15 days and try a new 8130

7. any good hacks for 8130 on VZW?

2. No, the focus will not autmatically move to the next row.

3. Verizon hasn't released any updates but there are updates released by other carriers that you can load and will work great on your BB. See the stickys at the top of the 8100 forum.

4. Highlight a date in the Message list and click menu and select "delete prior."

5. Check the Aftermarket software forum for lots of good apps.

6. An Echo is a network issue, not a phone issue.

7. there aren't any hacks but you can remove stuff to increase memory and make your BB run better. See my Optimize thread in my sig.

An echo happens when you're in between cell towers mostly. When you're bouncing off too many, or switching from one to another, you get this echo. Usually goes away, or drops the call when you finally switch.
The more towers close around you, the more likely you are to experience this. Or if you travel into different cities.

When I lived in Montana, Verizon had a tower on top of Red Lodge Mountain. So as long as I was in Red Lodge (where I lived), that was my only tower. Driving to billings is a 60mi drive, and about 45mi into the trip, I would get an echo for the last 15mi. Until I was totally in billings, relaying off their towers.
