Default Rather simple questions, I'm afraid

Please Login to Remove!

Good day all. Having visited this site many times since purchasing a Blackberry 8700c a few days ago, I realized that it was high time that I join this exceptional forum. I am very pleased to be a member of such a fine group of knowledgable individuals.

I hope that my posing of a few rather simple questions does not leave a poor first impression on you. And please know that I would never waste anyone's time with such requests if I had not tried to find the answers elsewhere. Here are my questions:
1) I allowed my unit to run down to the point where the message about low battery was displayed on the screen. The power was at the point where I lost tower contact, but the green notification light remained just that, green. At what point does it become amber or red?
2) After numerous contacts with Cingular, I still cannot find an answer about whether the notification lights should be flashing or solid. I have received many conflicting answers.
3) Should I expect the notification light to remain green even while charging?

In the future, I would hope to pose much more interesting questions.

Again, please have a great day.

1. Red means no signal.

2. It should blink. Only 3rd party apps will allow a sold red

3 Yes

See, not that wasnt so hard.

Welcome from the Gecko

Start with the manual, and then go to my tips site and get the tips document. After a few hours with those you should be way beyond where you are now. There is though a thread on how to charge the battery. You can find that easily. The LED will be be green, red or blue (bluetooth is on). You can turn it off under Options>Screen/Keyboard. It will then turn red when a message arrives. If you have it on, it will generally flash green, or red when a message arrives, but you can change the behavior in profiles. Explore a little and good luck.

Thank you, Gecko. You were kind to reply so quickly. As to why the Cingular Getting Started Guide indicates that there is indeed a yellow LED light for low battery, I really haven't a clue. Perhaps it is just to give me different colors to look at in an otherwise bland-looking manual. I also would have thought that the green light would change color when the unit is charging. Oh well, I am much more impressed with this unit than the Nokia 6682 I've been yelling at.

Oh, by the way, I just received the Krusell Multi case with the flap closure, but am rather disappointed that the fit isn't all that good. In fact, I have to really shove my BB into the case in order to even allow the earpiece to be halfway visible. And so it goes.

Thanks again.

Thank you, Stinsonddog. I have read your tips page and was delighted to find it. I also want you to know that I intend to make a contribution, especially since, if I read it correctly, the contributions are sent to an animal welfare fund. That is wonderful.

Yes they will go to animal welfare. My kids donated a months allowance to Katrina animals.
