    Can I just say that I've had this phone for a week and it is my first Blackberry.....and I love it!

    Okay so I was fidgeting around in the profiles section and I didn't know what some of the options meant such as:

    "Level 1"
    "Out/In Holster" (does it know when you have it in a holster or not?!)

    Also, sometimes I hear a little crack or boom in my speaker while messing around with the phone. It rarely has happened but I have no idea what it could be.

    Thanks for the help!

    The OEM holsters have a small magnet which is detected by the phone.

    Welcome to the Bold. There is an automatic sensor in the phone that can tell when it is placed into a holster.

    As for your speaker question...I have no idea. When you say you're "messing around w the phone", what exactly do you mean?..playing w sounds apps?

    No, like I'll use iheartradio for a while and then turn the app off and do something else with the phone and its not long after I use that app that it does a little crack or boom sound

    My Bold used to do the popping/boom noise randomly as well. It was the OS I was running AFAIK. I'm currently on .247 and haven't had this issue since I upgraded my OS.

    Welcome to BB love

    "Level 1" - By default these are usually PIN messages (I think it can be edited)
    "Out/In Holster" - The phone will respond to holsters that have tiny magnets in them

    Don't know about the speaker issue , sorry.

    Great! I don't know how to upgrade the OS (or to see what version I am using for that matter). How would I do this?

    That comes in handy for Email Bulletin Board notifications.
    When Crackberry, or Glocktalk auto mails me about a thread and I am trying to sleep, with the phone in the wallet I just have it vibrate not Ping.
    When a Bulletin Board gets rocking it is an E-Mail producing machine.
    I bet I have had 120 mails just today.

    Thanks so much! How would I go about installing the upgrade....and is this even safe to upgrade the OS? I bought this phone off ebay and I don't want at&t thinking that I completely trashed my phone and then they tell me they cant do anything about it.

    It's perfectly safe to upgrade your OS.
    For instructions: http://forums.crackberry.com/f3/prop...ocedure-53359/
    It's almost impossible to brick your phone and in some odd case where you do, there's usually a way to fix it.
    If you're phone has problems and you need a warranty replacement from AT&T you can always downgrade back to their official OS without them even being able to tell you've done anything to the phone.

    I personally like the red and blue cases more than the others.
