Default New to Blackberry, few problems...

Please Login to Remove!

I've been having some random issues with my 8800, and they're as follows:

Installed, Ramble IM then uninstalled it, but it still shows up in my programs, and appears to still work.

Every once in a while, if I get a message, then open it, the message stays on the home screen (I have BB Dimension Today).

When the phone is power cycled, the application list (the grid) has the icons not spaced out correctly, I have to hit "show all" then "show all" again and they're spaced out right after that...

Is there a way to send the same SMS to a list of people?

1a) Pull the battery and put it back in. If you didn't do this, you may have not gotten a hard reset.

1b) Go to (Settings/Tools -->) Options --> Advanced Options --> Applications. If Ramble is listed there, highlight it, hit the Menu button and select Delete. If it is NOT listed, hit the Menu button and select Modules. Look for any Modules related to Ramble (they should have Ramble in their names). Highlight them, hit the Menu button and select Delete.

2) You can only SMS one person at a time without a third party app (I don't know of any).

You can send an SMS to additional people.....
When typing an SMS just:
menu > add recipient

You are very likely accidentally hitting the "k" key (shortcut to lock the keyboard) upon holstering (if it only happens sporadically. Are you placing your 8800 in your holster face OUT or face IN? Try it face IN, if that is the problem.

You can also check your Options > Security > General Settings and see if under LOCK HANDHELD UPON HOLSTERING is Yes or No.

Well, in terms of the settings, its set to No (not lock upon holstering). As for the K key, i've got it set to dial from my home screen, so hitting k just brings up the phone app...

Well it's just a poltergeist, then. It'll work itself out.

I recently discovered that hitting Alt and Enter at the same time locks the keyboard. I don't use shortcuts (i.e. I can dial from the home page).
