Exclamation New Phone Blackberry 8700f User

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

WE have just got these phones for me and my husband and I would like some help and information ..

First were do we start (*grin*)

1. How can we transfer music and pictures to the mobile?
2. How can we set up Bluetooth . I mean pair it up with my laptop.

I have downloaded the desktop manager but even that does not give me much help. I have also downloaded the manual to use the phone but I would like to change the theme add some of my music for ringtones and pictures .

Any help will do

Thank you

Welcome to the Forums, Angelvella.

On your BB, click Options/Tools, then About. The line that starts with V.4.

If version 4.1, you will need to download FROM the browser on your BlackBerry, ringtones, etc., from websites that have them, such as tuneisin.com. You will find others listed in the Media section of this forum. Most pictures you can email yourself and save to the BB, or save from a website.
If you have OS version 4.2 or higher, read here:

About

We've said it three times...

(sometimes "options" is called "tools", hence the "options/tools"

I suggest you read the FAQ. That should answer a lot of questions for you about the BB.

Angelvella, You can not have a media card with your model.

My post above and the link distinctly instructs how to move ringtones.
I even offered you an example website to go to.

I don't think this is a language difference. We are trying to help, but you must read what is being posted here.

You canNOT move ringtones to your BB OS version via your laptop and cable.

No problem... we do want to help. We do want you to read what we post, so that it does not appear to be a waste of our time.

Ask any question.. or just say if you are not clear on something.
