you're welcome. Are you gonna remove the shorts too?

Autolock is a good idea, but I'd rather have the phone go on 'standby mode' than having the keypad lock itself up: easier to re-activate it from standby (just push the button on top).

Err, not to be a douche, but I would think that they still wouldn't want you passing the links privately. It's good that they have a control over who has it; besides, they give it out to pretty much everyone that asks.

Great suggestions, but don't insult Opera by calling it Internet Explorer :P

If you are concerned about making phone calls accidentally I would strongly recommend a blackberry case (with magnet). Please understand I have had Nokia's forever and constantly locked/unlocked the phone and hate phone cases, but the BB case is great because it puts the phone into standby mode automatically.

I've tried installing the Opera Mini program with PocketMac, but I get, "Unable to locate one or more files required by this installer." message. Is it not compatible with PocketMac? PM installed the trackball colour app just fine.

Um...it seems like the other one had much better lists...but i MAY be biased.

Or you could just type in Bump in the other one and that would solve the problem..

Don't take this as mean or anything, but this idea is actually what a lot of us *don't* like, a million threads about the same subject. You should reply to the existing thread (which will bump it) instead of creating yet one more place that people searching for answers have to go.

As NJBlackBerry says, "step away from the New Thread button".

Why don't the mods just make one thread, and sticky it...and then we add suggestions/programs like normal?
