| | Blackberry Newbie: couple of basic questions
Please Login to Remove!
I've just switched from the world of Palm Treos and Pocket PCs to a BB 8700. It's taking a little getting used to. The 8700 is a cool device, but I'm finding I had grown used to my Treo functionality and and getting used to some of BBs no-frills approach to things...
I've searched through forums, but have a few remaining questions:
 Is there a way to keep the phone on, but turn off the push email? (For instance, at night I want to keep my phone on, but don't want emails sent to my BB)
 BB email does not support HTML formatting? I realize the answer is 'yes'...I'm just wondering if I'm the only one who finds this odd? (Admittedly, plain text email is simple and straight forward, but some HTML formatting (like bold and italics) makes for easier reading.
 Am I correct that there are not 3rd party applications that spruce up the Contacts view? All of the info is there, but it would be nice if the field names weren't formatted identically to the field data.
 In messages, I have the option set to "hide sent messages"; however, the messages I send still show up in the list. Am I missing something?
Sorry I'm posting with my "complaints" about the BB interface. I know the BB community is quite passionate about their devices, so not trying to come across as being overly critical...
