First off, hello - ive been reading the boards for a while trying to learn about blackberrys, and i've finally upgraded my i860 to a nextel Blackberry 7520. Just finally registered on the boards.
Couple questions on this phone that I couldn't find anythng about while searching online or reading through the instruction manual:
-is there any way to enable the backlight to turn on if i hit any of the buttons on the phone? for example, if i want to check what time it is, its a pain in the butt to constantly try to find the small power/light button. if i was able to hit the space bar to turn the light on, that would rock.
-also, is there a way to hide icons on the main screen? there are some things i wont use - such as tasks, help, nextel.com, etc... I cant find anything in the options to hide these icons so i dont have to constantly look at them.
-is there an easier way to alert people with the DC/PTT instead of hitting the scroll whell, then alert? seems like the simple things you can do on flip phones are hard as hell on this phone - too many menus and buttons you have to press to do simple things.
-is there really no hope for text messaging on this thing? i know it wont do normal text messaging, so will people just have to use my blackberry email to send me messages? what happens if they send me a normal text message anyways? i just wont see who it is from?
Thanks for all your help. Im sorry for being a noob, but ive looked around, and cant find anything on this.
ANy help is appreciated. Thank you!
