Question New BlackBerry owner...basic questions

Please Login to Remove!

I just got my BlackPearl BB phone. Here are some functions I'm looking to setup but don't know how and couldn't find instructions from the manual or anything that comes with the box.

1. How do I setup different rington for new email/IM/MSM/calendar appointment/task?
2. How do I find out about my un-used and used minutes?
3. How do I use my .jpg file as the wall paper?

I may have more questions as I explore this device. Many thanks in advance.

I humbly suggest you read through your manual, as well as the FAQ site here,
Main Page - BlackBerryFAQ

1-Go to Profiles, scroll down to ADVANCED, and edit from there.
2-Your Carrier will know that. Some you can dial like #MIN# and get an accounting. I believe that works with TMo, and mytmobile.com has that info as well.
3-Email the picture to yourself, open attachment and save. Go to Picture Viewer and open that picture, SET AS WALLPAPER. You can also transfer jpgs from Media Manager in your Desktop Manager.

Good luck, welcome to the Forums.

Question

Many thanks for the response. I'll give the 2nd and 3rd suggestion a try tonight. As for question one, I already been to the Advance option. I found this on the FAQ page you gave me but it didn't say anything about creating different rington for say new email or appointment reminder. The link talks about creating new rington for different user. For now, I'm the only user of this device. As I said in my initial post, the manual does not give steps by steps on how configure different rington for like new email and appointment reminder. I already went through the Blackberry 101 training and nothing there give me the specific information I needed.

Question

Okay, I went to: profiles>advanced> and I do not see "active profile" but do I see the Phone Active. At the bottm I see the "Use Active Profile Except for:" and then under this there is a checkbox checked for Important Calls.

I highlight the Importaint Calls and press menu button and edit and then I got to the Exception: Importan Calls section. For the User Profile: Active Profile and then for the Custom Phone Tune: T-Jingle is checked and that is it. I press the menu again and I do not see any option for adding anything.
