Default 8700r Battery Status

Please Login to Remove!

I recently got a 8700r (Rogers)thru work. I've downloaded the 8700 manual for the FAQ page. It says to Go to options/status to find the % left. When I go to Options, there is no "status" for me to click on. Is the manual carrier specific ? or is it something our IT guys change when they set it up for me. If not how do I check the battery ? This is my first day with it.

It has probably been blocked by your IT admin. That is the correct location to check the battery percent.

The heading is marked Options-Security.

Do anyone know of another way to check the battery status.

that is the way, as described.

If you load BBToday, it will give you a battery percentage as well.

Also, on your homescreen, you can find it by holding down the ALT key, whle typing E A C E. Scroll down to Battery Level.

Good luck.

I'll have to use the shortcut (more like a longcut Ha!) I don't think I'm allowed to instal apps on it. I'll have to talk to our IT guys why they remove the option.

Thanks all, for your help

Got it figured out. I did say this was my first day with the unit and later said the heading was "Option-Security". That exactly where I was, I was in options and was stuck on the security page. Just found out I had an "escape" button, I was always going close with the scroll wheel. What a dope Thanks all for you help and patience. Lots to learn.
