That information is not made available to the public. I do believe it is provided to the carriers to some extent, but I doubt they'd make it openly available to an end user.

If you don't press anything for 5 seconds or so, the title bar should disappear and leave full screen video. It will come back when you press a button.

How fast will your battery drain when you do various things? Answered!

It is generally understood that certain features, such as the GPS, draw a lot of power, but how much? I decided it was time to find out. I hacked up a battery so that I could connect a current...

Good afternoon!

If I get an 802.11-enabled Blackberry (e.g. 8320, 8820), but do NOT pay for a UMA plan, is the 802.11 connection still established and used for email and web access, or do I have to...

I couldn't find it either

I'm reasonably confident that it doesn't exist.

However, note that Q/# is a shortcut for toggling between the two; at least that's a step forward from using the menu every time.
