Default New and need help!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone. I'm new to the site and also the bb community. I've had my bb pearl(verizon) for 2 days and I love it. I'll probably love it more when I figure out how to work it all the way. First question: Why can't I play videos on the internet? I don't have a micro sd card and it keeps giving me a java script message?? Thanks in advance.

welcome to the forums. what videos are you trying to play? if it is youtube, your phone is not capable of Flash Videos. try m.youtube.com as an alternative.

I see. Do I need a micro sd card to view? Also, i used to use myxertones.com to have free ring tones sent to my phone via text and then i would go to the url and download to my phone. For some reason i am not receiving the messages though.

well you might be able to recieve them that way. you can also try TuneUsIn - Free MP3 Ringtones, Blackberry Wallpaper, Blackberry Themes - For Your Blackberry or Mobile Phone from your browser to download ringtones. you do not need the video card to view, but there is a limit on file sizes.

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830)

You will need the card if you want to save any videos, pictures, or music for future use.

yes both can be done. for some great themes check the media section here. you can also download via the browser. make sure they are for your device, aka 81xx version for the pearl, not the 83xx or the 88xx
