Question New 8700g Blackberry User - Couple of Questions

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,

I just got the t-mobile 8700g blackberry... so far so good, i really like the speed and size and i've actually transitioned to using it as my every day phone. couple of questions:

1) is there a way to turn off the blinking green status light? I only want it to light up red when i get a message/text/vm/missed call. I also do not want it to light up blue when I have BT on.

2) how do I program the side convinence key to bring up the address book? I don't see an option for contacts or address book in the settings

3) how come when I am in the phone / call log screen I cannot type someone's name to bring up their details like i could with the older 7230 blackberry? i now have to go to the address book to do this...

4) can I program the top mute button to do something? All what it does is mute a call when I'm on a call... but when i'm not on a call it doesn't do anything else

5) are there any good world clock freeware programs out there? I want to be able to display at least 3 timezones on the homescreen.

6) are there any good freeware IM programs that use only data (not sms) to send IMs? the built in program uses sms and i do not want to do that since I roam internatially all the time

7) this was a problem with the older bb's... is there a way to make it vibrate AND ring at the same time for calls/text/etc?

Thanks in advance!

Pretty much every question you've asked here has an answer on the forums.

1. It's in the options
2. Also in the options
3. If you're running the latest Desktop Software, I do believe this ability got removed.
4. Actually don't know about this one, but pretty sure you can't
5. Check the software thread
6. Never played around with it.
