    Just picked up a storm today, where can i go for a good noob faq? Like change wallpapers and how to maker the caller ID pic be full screen when someone calls. And after i get that done i wanna load up games and apps. I mostly browse the net so anything that could improve that. Should i be looking to upgrade my OS or something? This is my first PDA so take it easy on me

    Yes, upgrade your OS and check out Opera Mini for a browser and Slacker if you like music

    Try starting in the Newbies area, you will see it on the bar at the top of the page, then read, read, read and search first if you have questions.

    Depends on the application. Most will provide some information regarding how to download, but if it referenced OTA or the file is a .jad file then you should download directly to your phone. If it is an .alx file or a zip file, then you would download to your computer and install via DM (Desktop Manager)

    while you're in the program press the blackberry menu key (the button that has the blackberry symbol next to your green call button) and in the menu there should be a option to close. Some programs will automatically close when you press and hold the escape key (the arrow next to the end call button).

    *EDIT* Also if you press and hold the menu key from your main menu it will give you a list of running apps. Some are meant to stay open such as phone, home screen, blackberry messenger, etc.

    is the facebook one always meant to stay open? Also i tried to install a few other apps, Like Weatherbug for example and it downloads then restarts the phone but after that i cant find it in the application menu. Where is it?
