Alright, I got my first BlackBerry this morning, the Storm, and I need help with a few things and thought this would be the best place to ask.
Most of the questions I'm guessing are relative to all BlackBerries, but just in case they aren't, I posted it here. FIRST QUESTION
First thing I need help with is the e-mail. Right now, I've got my e-mail address (buddycuffsATgmailDOTcom) in my contacts list because on my last phone, I'd send picture/video messages to me e-mail at home so I could download them and save them on my computer. Now with the Blackberry, when I tried sending a picture message to my e-mail from my contacts list (after setting up my e-mail address on my BB), I received two copies on my computer - one saying only "Your message was delivered to the recipient," the other saying "Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry" with the picture under it - one copy in my buddycuffsATgmailDOTcom icon on my phone, and two copies in my Messages folder (the next problem I have lies here, which I will come to later).
One copy was a blank message with the attachment (picture)
The other copy was a message saying "Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry" with the picture attached under it.
In short - what do I do so I can get the pictures I take on my phone onto my computer without having multiple messages in 3 separate places, clogging up my folders?
On the topic of e-mails, what would getting the Gmail application do? Would it be worth it? Because I'd already have a Messages folder. SECOND QUESTION!!
Mentioned before, I've got two folders on my BlackBerry's home screen.
One says Messages. The other says buddycuffsATgmailDOTcom [From now on will be mentioned as @gmail because I don't want to type out all of that annoying crap]. Then, next to that I've got SMS and MMS.
When I get an e-mail, it sends it to both the @gmail and Messages folder. Is there a way I can just merge the two folders or get rid of the @gmail one? Because the @gmail one is just annoying and isn't capitalized and looks unclassy (something I obviously cannot associate myself with on my sleek and shiny new Storm
Also, dealing with this second question: The font size for my e-mails is really large. The header text is all regular size, but the text inside of the e-mail is way too big. Is there a way to change that? THIRD QUESTION
This one has multiple questions inside of it so get ready for an epic question. 1.
My camera's resolution is set to the highest one (which is really high quality [I love you 3.2MP
]) but whenever I take a picture, it seems to be grainy right when it saves. I noticed this on my friend's Pearl also. Is there a setting I'm just missing altogether to fix that?
2. I don't like how the full names of certain icons aren't shown. Not really a big deal, but it bugs me a little bit. Is there a way to customize the names of icons?
3. What are some ways to conserve battery life? Mine seemed to drain pretty quick out of the first charge.
4. What is
the Password Keeper? I'm afraid to do anything in there, heh.
5. What's the difference between the Maps and VZ Navigator? Would it be worth it to get Google Maps? FOURTH QUESTION
THIS IS AN EDIT: I feel like a huge idiot for posting this without testing more. I don't even want to say what it was to protect my own dignity, haha.
Now after reading over this post and realizing how annoying and noobish I sound, please forgive me. I needs teh halp though.
