    Default New to BB questions...

    Hey guys, I just got the tour and it's my first BlackBerry. So far I've really been enjoying it but I just have a few general questions I haven't been able to figure out.

    1. For those who don't use the holster - when using your phone on and off throughout the day (texting friends etc..) on downtime between messages, when you go to place your phone in your pocket do you put it on keyboard lock or standby mode?

    2. Is there a way to delete all SMS/MMS messages in the inbox? Or do I have to go and delete them all individually to clean things up?

    3. Is there a way to automatically delete the old message or send receipt upon receiving a new reply? Since the previous 7 or so messages are included in the response, it gets pointless to have the old copies remaining in the inbox and causing things to get cluttered.

    I really appreciate any help guys! Thanks.

    If you delete the prior messages they will no longer show up in the history of 7 messages...

    BB menu key, choose the "close" option.

    Most apps will shut down if you press and hold the back key too

    Do you guys typically close out of all apps if you aren't expecting to use them in the near future? (such as Camera, Setup, TwitterBerry, Music, Browser, etc)

    And what exactly does standby mode change? That's different from like keyboard lock?

    I try to keep my apps closed out. Typically just hold the back button to close them out. I also check open apps every once in a while by holding the BB button on the main screen.

    Since I am now waiting on my SPE Side holster to arrive (they released them today which is great since I love this holster). I use my storms side pouch but put it in standby mode.

    Standby mode is better for in pocket etc, because hitting the keys will not turn your screen on. In key lock, if you push a key, the screen will light up. You don't want that if you are trying to conserve your battery.
