Welcome to BB Forums.
First, may I suggest that you read the Sticky Thread FAQs at the top of the General BlackBerry Discussion forums.

1. The BB has two "modes" - In Holster and Out of Holster. The screen shuts off when in the holster, and the "profiles" allow you to set different alerts based on when it is in or out of holster. For example, in holster may vibrate when you get a message, and out of holster in may do nothing.

2. No trick; use a little force. Remember that the screen should always face the back (facing the clip)

3. Depends on the color. Blinking green means you are connected to a network. Go into Options / Screen and Keyboard to change that.

4. no.

Again, good luck.

You may want to think about switching from the plactic holster (launcher) to the OEM leather holster.

I agree about the plastic holster. I've dropped my 7100i while using the plastic holster. The leather holster I have now is much better.
