Thou shalt not request for Beta releases on CrackBerry
Thou shalt remove the battery when a problem arises
Thou shalt use the Search Feature before creating a thread
Thou shalt be a contributing and helpful member to the family
And those be the commandments of the BlackBerry God
OK; when I saw post #16 above, my first thought was, wtf? then I started getting mad. Then I went and did something else for about an hour, because one should never post in anger. Now, on my behalf, and on that of Keywest and BMClure, I will address the OP.
I said, "Thou shalt do a Forum Search before thou beginneth a new Thread." Keywest said, "Thou shall be nice to newbies even if their question has been asked a zillion times before." And BMcClure said, "Thou shalt use the Search Feature before creating a thread."
I'm not sure how you got the idea that these suggestions (or basically, the suggestion) was a personal attack on you, because they (or it) was not. It's a fact that at any given time, a goodly proportion of new threads have been started by people who did not search the forums first to see if their question(s) had already been answered by a previous posting.
I don't mind advising someone who is wondering why their call logs and texts are disappearing to pull their battery and then follow one of the guide to free up memory. And I do try to be polite; I am cognizant that behind every post is a real person on a computer keyboard or BlackBerry. And those of us who have been on CB for any length of time don't routinely go around attacking posters. But I do allow that tone is very hard to judge, behind the words.
I apologize to you; while my Commandment in Post #2 was not directed at you (or anyone else, in particular), you took it so, and I should have been more careful with the tone of my posting.
Tiheia.....what exactly is your problem with what I posted??? Guess you're having a bad day huh??? Have no idea why you responded that way. Think before you post. For the record...this was supposed to be a fun thread.

Very nice Katherine! I'm sure they realize they might have been a little sensitive - like we all are in the beginning. You have lots of class. All of you singled out have shown great restraint, and I'm sure the berries will apologize soon.
