| | Re: Can you look up contacts with the keyboard? Newbie question!
MP3 files as ringtones are no problem. You might consider a larger media card though. New BlackBerrys can handle up to 32GB cards! I would recommend an 8GB card or larger.
Looking up contacts is a strong point for BlackBerrys. Open the Contacts app and start typing letters. The contacts matching what's typed will appear and update with each new letter typed. When you see the one you want, highlight it and hit the green Phone button to call that contact. Pushing the trackpad while the contact is highlighted will compose an email to that person.
When you have the Phone app open, the default action for the keypad is to type in numbers. No need for the Alt key as long as the Phone app is open. One thing I've always loved about BlackBerrys is the device knows when you're typing in the phone or area code field of a contact. It defaults to numbers, no need to use Alt with each key to access numbers. In that case pressing Alt will give you letters/symbols.
