Not that I'm aware of, or have found. I've wondered also, but couldn't find any online. I'm HIGHLY interested to find out as well, they're fun to play with.

There are always Easter Eggs in any OS. The trick is to find them.

There are quite a few in Blackberries.

WAP Browser Config screen -- Type RBRO -- enable HTML browsing.

Main Menu - Type Alt+NMLL -- Turn signal meter into a dBm number.

ALT-CAP-H is a help screen
ALT-CAP-DEL performs a reset (like taking out the battery)
ALT-L-G-L-G shows a log file
ALT-N-M-L-L as Mark said, thurns signal strength into numbers (and a second time to return to bars)

There are many more...I will look for that updated tips & tricks posting, and post it...

I don't know if I'd call those easter-eggs, more of a short cut kind of thing. My idea of an easter egg, is like playing Doom 1 on the PC, going into a wall and seeing the programmers faces, and grafitti signatures on the walls. *shrugs* Tho I like that dB one, that's cool.

Yeah, I agree -- these aren't really Easter Eggs. It would be cool if someone could find a REAL Easter Egg. There were some really cool ones in old MSOffice applications -- Excel 97 had a wild 3D fly-by scene

I remember that! You were like, flying over a purple, mountainous landscape! I used to turn it on and leave it running as a screensaver sometimes!
