Default Change how list of emails are viewed

Please Login to Remove!

Hey gang,

Just wondering if it's possible to change the way the list of messages are viewed on 8100? I had the 7130 and each message had the author and subject on one line, making it easy to see more on the screen. The 8100 view forces it on two lines. I know the screen is smaller, but was wondering if we're flexible in any way to change the way messages are presented?

In Messages, click the wheel and select Options --> General Options. There you can control whether or not to display the email's Time and Sender.

Default Now, help with Browser

Thanks.. that did the trick. Couple other things.

I have a full data package. My company, in Cleveland, set up the 8100. I am in Detroit. All the built in sites use Cleveland as a basis for weather, sports. Any central place to change that in the 8100, back to Detroit?

BTW, I had trouble accessing web pages. I found if I switched to Internet Browser from the BB Browser, I had no problems. Is that normal?

Also, my Browser is not accessing web pages. I do have a full data package and Cingular tech support is closed today. Any tips on getting things started?
Don't know the answer to the first question.

As for Browsers, you should have three browsers. Your provider's browser (Cingular Browser on mine), Internet Browser, and BlackBerry Browser.

The Internet Browser is a full fledged browser.

The Provider's browser routes through their network, so for Cingular Browser if you go to Yahoo!, you actually go to Cingular's version (Media Net) of that page, but the Internet Browser brings you to a different page.

The BlackBerry Browser routes through your Company's Internet connection, so for my company if you try to go to a site that's blocked, you get blocked on the BlackBerry Browser too - but not on the Internet Browser.

That said, if you're missing a Browser package, you'll either need to reload the OS (which should give you Internet and BlackBerry browsers), and your provider's BIS site to resend the service books for their browser.
