hey guys,

just got my new 'curve' and i thought it would be good to sign up to the site and start learning...
my first questions are:
1. what cool tweak did you guys operate on your device that you think is worth sharing?
2. how do you choose a different tune for a call and an sms or e-mail?

thanks in advance!

Tips?

My favorite tip is the homescreen shortcuts.

Home Screen Shortcuts - BlackBerryFAQ

Allows me to hide 7-8 application icons off my homescreen and saves a whole lot of scrolling.

First thing I did two weeks ago when I got my new curve was to max the free memory.

i see, thanks for that!
it's wierd but i changed the theme to 'dimension zen' and i'm experiancing slow reaction, is that normal? also when i changed back to the AT&T theme the "lock phone" icon was gone and i cant find it...i tried to "show all" but its not there...
i guess i'll go through the guide that was provided here for maxing free memory and see if that solves it...
