    I'm coming from OS7 which has been my lifeblood since OS6 and before that I was on OS5 etc... I finally decided to take the plunge and start using OS 10.3 via the Passport. Below are some questions I hope someone can help me answer:

    1. Vibration Length, red LED duration
    Is there the ability to adjust the vibration length? I need this so bad since I'm use to a short burst for quick BBMs, right now I'm forced to completely mute it at my office since the long vibration is absolutley overkill and anoys everyone including me.
    Can the red LED indicator duration be set? What is the default length?

    2. From Call log, for a contact that recently called, choose a number type to call back.
    So say I miss a call from some one and it appears on my call log as missed call, I would like to be able to click on the person and then choose a number to call back (person has multiple phones in contact record). On OS7 this was possible since it asks you to select the number type. But for OS10 it seems if I tap the person, it just automatically calls back the number he/she used to call me.
    This is pretty irritating.

    3. Keep screen on when using speaker phone
    Is it possible to keep the screen on when using the speaker phone?

    4. Auto bedside mode when plugged in
    Where is the feature where it automatically goes into bedside mode once plugged in AND during certain hours??

    More to come...
    I really like this device so far but OS10 definitely still needs work, they can't just drop all those features found in OS7... Right when OS10 came out, it probably had half of what's in 10.3 so I waited, it's been more than 2 years now, and still missing features found is OS5.

    Thanks!

    For number 2: Just keep your finger on the contact for a second, in stead of quickly tapping the contact, and you will be able to see the person's contact information and call back on another number.

    Thanks for that. It's 1 press extra from OS7 but I can live with that.

    Just like when I had my Bold 9900 on OS7, I downloaded BeBuzz Pro for my Passport. The vibration length can be set and so can the LED. Worth every penny.

    Bedside mode won't be automatic, but just swipe down from the lock screen.

    Prior to using os 10 will be different and will require a learning curve? Remember Os10 is about tap, swipe and flick motions to manouver to the way you were using your previous BlackBerry devices. Everything you described is possible, it is a learning curve!

    Also, is there a way to turn back the radio usage indicator on the upper right corner... you know the little arrows?

    It is not possible and it is a good thing they are not there, they save battery since to update a part of the screen the processor has to refresh the entire screen and we can live without it
