I keep reading and keep becoming more confused. Here are my questions. Please help.

Thanks!

#1- When putting in a phone number, is there a way to NOT bring up peoples names in addition?

#2- Is there a way to set my keypad to work like a normal cell for texting. Example...Hitting the "1" key TWICE to get a "R"

#3- I canít figure out how to have my phone locked while itís in my pocket? Is the standby the only way to do this?

#4- How to scroll from top to bottom fast? Can you do it without the trackball?

#5- When scrolling through my address book, options, etcÖ is there a way to change the background there? Itís just white and very plain text. I know I can change the text font and style

#6- Iím wanting to test out the opera mini 4.0/beta and itís already on my phone but I donít know how to switch it? I went to Options>Advanced Options>Applications>Opera Mini 4.0 Mini but it doesnít do anything?

#7- I canít download my email attachment? Hereís what I get.
I highlight my cursor over the attachment on emails and click menu but all I get is:

#1- When putting in a phone number, is there a way to NOT bring up peoples names in addition?

- No as far as I know.

#2- Is there a way to set my keypad to work like a normal cell for texting. Example...Hitting the "1" key TWICE to get a "R"

- enable your multitap instead of suretype

#3- I canxxx8217;t figure out how to have my phone locked while itxxx8217;s in my pocket? Is the standby the only way to do this?

- hold the * key for a couple sec.

#4- How to scroll from top to bottom fast? Can you do it without the trackball?

- scroll in email or web browser?

#5- When scrolling through my address book, options, etcxxx8230; is there a way to change the background there? Itxxx8217;s just white and very plain text. I know I can change the text font and style

- noway to change background

#6- Ixxx8217;m wanting to test out the opera mini 4.0/beta and itxxx8217;s already on my phone but I donxxx8217;t know how to switch it? I went to Options>Advanced Options>Applications>Opera Mini 4.0 Mini but it doesnxxx8217;t do anything?

- not sure what you mean by switch it. If you have Opera Mini download and installed on your phone, you should be able to see the icon in your list when you hit "menu" that brings up all the programs that you have installed.

#7- I canxxx8217;t download my email attachment? Herexxx8217;s what I get.
I highlight my cursor over the attachment on emails and click menu but all I get is:

good answers, just would add that #7 works only if the attachment is a file type the blackberry can open.

Not nesc. what I wanted to hear but

- enable your multitap instead of suretype

What part is this in? Looking through, I can't find this. I can find suretype but just the actual words. How do I switch?


#4- How to scroll from top to bottom fast? Can you do it without the trackball?

- scroll in email or web browser?
Both if they're different. That way I know

There is no "open attachment" plus I've tried several types of files. .jpeg, .gif, word, excel, etc...


Thanks again!

#4 is alt + scroll

and not sure about the attachment, ive only had that happen when it was an unsupported file type, i use beamberry to open some pdf's.

make sure you have blackberry attachment service listed under application in the advanced settings. other than that im not sure.

as for sure type, you might try in settings under screen/keyboard but i dont have pearl so not really sure.

Hmm - I know that from your post in the General thread and that you didn't specify your OS or keyboard, I don't know how to answer? See my tips site for docs on your device and that might have some answers.

when you are composing an email, click the menu button, scroll all the way to the bottom, you will see "Enable Multitap".

Edit: another way to do it is hold the * key for couple sec when composing messages.

...and definitely read your Getting Started Guide. If you didn't get one or lost yours you can download it from Blackberry.com.
