Default 8900 BB and Maximmum Text/SMS output and contact lists

Please Login to Remove!

Hi

I am new to the BB mobile phone system.
I have just purchased a BB 8900 Smartphone on an O2 UK tariff and donít really know to use it except for basic cell phone use gage

If you can help me on the following:

1. What is the max number of text / SMS messages I can send simultaneously and is there a correct method of

2. What are the max number of contacts I can store on the BB phone and also max number on a regular SIM? I think a SIM is 200?

3. Any ideas on a basic web learning forum for using the core BB functions

Thanks

Frank

1) Are you asking how many contacts you can send one SMS message to? I believe it's 10. However, you could create a group within your address book and send the SMS to that group. I am not aware of a limit on that.

2) I don't believe there's a limit other than device memory. I've heard of people with 3,000 plus contacts on their device.

3) Check out BlackBerry FAQ - BlackBerryFAQ, browse these forums, and check out Stinsonddog's tips : Stinsonddog's Blackberry Tips and Tricks ‚Äé(Blackberry Tips & Tricks from the Mods)‚Äé

I haven't had an issue with SMS text limits or contact lists.
