1. tone sound when dialing number even in vibrate/silent mode.



2. When BB is locked and you get a call, your phone gets unlocked afterwards.


3. The strange sound when doing speed dial that can't be turned off.



4. After a call, it takes a while for the call screen to go away and so if you try to lock or exit, if gives you the confirmation screen asking if you want to stray away during a call





Anyone else have anything else to add?

I think its more that many people have learned to live with what you have mentioned because there is really nothing you can do about them and they have been discussed in many threads.

Unhappy

I agree totally with you PeaceOut. I solved (???) the audible keytones while the phone was in silent mode by actually turning them off from the Tools menu- Dang!

No WiFi
No Voice Recorder!
The manual says to press the Speakerphone key to turn on the external speaker while in the call- there is NO speakerphone key, only a menu item called "Activate Speakerphone".
You can't turn the flash off while taking a picture- you have to dig thru the menus. And there's no red-eye....cumon!
You can not have both vibrate and ringtone at the same time. You only get vibrate first then ringtone if still not answered.
No video recording???

My old O2 used to do everything above plus more plus there was more software available for it. I'm getting pissed that my missus bought the BB now....

There is a speakerphone key - it's the one with the speaker icon and $. One touch during a call enables the speakerphone.

How about in the online help on the BB itself.

Are you surprised the 8310 doesn't have WiFi? It's not advertised that way.

The manual is useless. You gotta read the forum and learn on your own. The video and audio recording will be available in the OS upgrade along with some other nice tools. Curve should have had them by default though!! Stiil beats the iphone hands down!

"Online Help"?! BLAH! That's OK, but unless I missed something, it doesn't show the which key the speakerphone is....just tells you it's there...somewhere!

Yeah, I know what yer saying about the WiFi, but dang all my older PDAs had it and I actually used it when I needed to do some quick web access as the phone was always by my side. <G>.

Thanks u too DP....will I still be alive when the update comes out? I need it now. I manage my own Navman forum and try to keep the POIs updated but without a voice rec while driving I can't do anything!

Page 15 of Getting Started guide documents the location of the speaker phone key.

Default Flash.

JDMils;
To turn on/off flash, press the spacebar.
The speakerphone button is in the same colour as the numbers-easier to see on the 8700 (keyboard has reverse colouring)-so it does stand out.
Most of the "problems" have their solutions in the built-in help program. It's well worth a read, and we all carry this program with us. (mostly 24/7!)

If you wanted wifi you should have bought the 8320 and not the 8310, GPS is an option that most older PDAs did not have that you do have with the 8310. IMO it's all about what's important to you, I personally see no point to wifi when I have unlimited data anyway.

Happy Berrying!

WiFi is really slow for me anyway. There is no reason that I see using it as your primary connection.

The mute button does not seem to do anything for me. I would expect the speaker icon to show the status (mute vs unmute) but that is not the case. I have not had a real world experience in using it. Is that MUTE button what you press if your phone is on, then rings and you want to quiet it ASAP?

I just use one of the volume bars on the side to mute the ringtone.
I would really like it to vibrate and sound at the same time too.
It's strange but there are a lot of options/shortcuts that you'll only find on the forum from other users. It's like an easter egg...they don't want you to know...you have to go find it.


Here's a couple more...
-alarm. Why isn't there at least two. I have to constantly change my weekday setting on the weekends then back on Sunday. The phone has become the official alarm clock.
-task can't be sorted by status and priority.
