Default new 8700g user questions

Please Login to Remove!

I'm getting used to my new BB 8700g, here are some questions hope someone can help:

1. Is there a way the menu of each application can be set to reset to beginning instead of if you cut out in the middle of the app. the next time you go back, it was where you left off?
2. Is there a source of a more full manual rather than the think booklet it came with?
3. Is there speed dial by pressing a number rather than an alphabet?
4. I noticed if someone tries to call you while you're on the net w/ the BB, the caller gets a busy signal rather than you getting a notice on the screen?
5. Is there a way to increase the call log to more than the last 20 numbers dialed?
6. I set "yes" to Java script for internet, but there are still some stuff I can' view, is there other settings I missed so I can view more?
7. I only email account I use on my BB is aol, how come I always get a delay, sometime could be like 15-20 min. rather than instant? Is there a solution?
8. Is there a way to view sent "emails" and not messages?

sorry for so much questions, but hope someone can help.

Hi, I'll give it a try:

1. Not sure if this answers your question but if I want to close out of an application I use the escape button and that brings it back to the beginning. If I want to switch between two apps, I just press the 'end' button (the one that you would use to end a call). Then when I go back to the app, it's where I left off. Don't know if this is the proper way, maybe someone else knows better.
2. If you've got TM, then go to their website and log into your account and indicate your phone as a BB 8700. Then it will provide a link where you can find a full user manual. Also, you can go to Blackberry's website and search issues there.
3. not sure
4. I'm pretty sure I've gotten calls while I've been on the browser, but you should check this out. maybe there's a you have call waiting activated?
5. don't know
6. i have this issue too, depends on the website but mostly I can get to any site.
7. i get delays with email sometimes too. you can call TM or RIM to check this out but it's not uncommon.
8. not sure what you mean here
Sorry I couldn't answer every question but it gives you somewhere to start.

You can check out my tips doc for more of a manual, but the full manual is on the CD or at RIM's site. Not sure what Q1 is about but Alt-ESC is the task switcher. Each key has a speed dial. Caller should not get a busy signal. It should ring through. Browswers have certain limitations. Can't view everything. You can use filters to see your full call log and sent messages only. See the tips doc. AOL will be polled since it can't be forwarded thus the delay. You can search here for 3rd party apps that will forward AOL.
