Default Few questions.

Please Login to Remove!

I assume a few of you have used treos before, anyways I like how the BB texts are threaded but my only complaint is when the same person for example "Ed" texts you it shows up Ed each time a message is sent in my inbox(I have email and sms seperate). Anyways my question is, is it possible to just have 1 "Ed" in the inbox so when you click on "Ed" when you get a new message it opens up the threading like on the treo.

Sorry I havent done a search but I am sure someone can give me a quick answer. but how do I dedicate the side key to put the device on keylock. I read a topic of people do this but its not one of my options to assign the side key to keylock.

I don't know about the threaded SMS. I have seen that question asked on here and never really paid much attention to it. I know you can go to Options > SMS, and set Number of Previous Items to your desire, but I don't think that will give the thread you are looking for.

Set your side convenience key at Options > Screen/Keyboard, scroll down.

Likewise, for keyboard lock, you can use the shortcut of tapping "k" on the homescreen IF you have Phone > Options > General Options > Dial from Homescreen set to NO. Then you can use a whole list of homescreen shortcuts, and set your side convenience key to some other utilization.

Good luck.

Thanks for your help, I have been trying to figure out how to get the short cuts to work since it kept dialing numbers but now I know. So far I have used the phone for only a few hours and I love it so much more than my treo especially the fact at how fast the internet is I got a crazy speed test of 1.2mbps vs my treo only getting about 600-800kbps.

Very cool, Andrew.

And know this, even when you OFF your homescreen dialing, your homescreen dialing still works. You can set speed dial to all of the keys, just HOLD the key down for speed dial.

To use the shortcuts, TAP the key.
