I will actually help you.

1. Most places you will use your credit card. A few applications are available via your provider.

2. I use Opera and the BlackBerry Browser depending on what I am doing.

3. Pull your battery when the device resets the issue will be corrected.

4. Yes My storm is on T-Mobile

5. As of right now there are no new themes. You can change the wallpaper to any picture you have. View the picture in media press the application button and choose set as home screen.

6. I use MP3, also supports Wav and I believe a few other formats.

7. It requires you removing a COD file if you really want to do this let me know and I will point you in the right direction.

I see it as deleted. It should have never been posted.

As far as ringtones you can use .mp4 also, or any music you have on your storm in general.

Considering how much help you needed when you got your BB, I would THINK you would have a bit more common sense when posting.

I guess not. You are in no position to suggest to anyone that they search or to give a wise a$$ answer.

in regards to these answers:


Can you give me some sites where i can download BB Storm Apps? Can i Install while on the blackberry itself?


If youre on t-mobile & verizon when you save a contact on a sim card, is there a way to Separate or differentiate between the sim card contacts and contacts saved on the actual device memory?


When i meant personalize i mean like to assign & reassign items on the today screen?

how do i remove the COD file to delete the sample pictures?


is there like a task manager or task ender for completely shutting down background apps on the BB Storm?

I picked up a few games at crackberry(dotcom) , some decent titles to fool around with. A couple where pretty cheezy but fun for the lil one anyway.

Im sure Verizon will have some soon too, watch there site.

Some of the mobile specific sites have programs and such too. Here are a few Ive found searching around and looking at lists.

mobileoptimized(dotcom)/MobilePortalSites.html

m.technorati(dotcom)/

mradar(dotcom)/mr/w/index.asp?rn= (this one is over 18)

pdamobileweb(dotcom)/

4info(dotnet)/

mobile.answers(dotcom)/

home.mobile.msn(dotcom)/en-us/default.aspx

wiki.mobileread(dotcom)/wiki/Mobile_links#Mobile-friendly_sources_for_e-books

google(dotcom)/mobile/blackberry/

google(dotcom)/webhp?hl=en

mobile.cnbc(dotcom)

mobile.blackberry(dotcom)/mss/category_push

crackberry(dotcom)

(dotcom) = .com
(dotnet) = .net


Im sure this is just a dent, but might help.

In your menu highlight the icon you want to move then push your bb button and click "move" then you can put that icon anywhere in the menu including your top rows which show on your home screen..

Also i would like to appoligize for my ignorant commet the two guys giving me crap were right your a new member and i should have pointed you in the right direction.. Welcome to BlackBerryForums!!!
