    Hi & welcome to CB!

    Go to options, advanced options, sim card then hit the menu key & select edit sim phone number, enter your number there then exit to save.

    Don't think you can download sms to your pc.

    Welcome to CB, Miss.
    I believe you can forward an SMS to an email address, but it's one at a time.

    and we're always gentle.

    There is a PC software "ABC Amber IPD Converter" which read and extract your SMS from an *.ipd backup file. It is not free, but worth it in a pinch if needed.

    I usually do a batch email type thingo for sms.
    I create a new email then copy and paste all the smss to the body using the enter key to leave a gap in between each.
    it is very time consuming but travelling on the bus for 2 hours a day means i have the time.

    Press the "phone" button
    press menu
    click options
    click general options
    set "restrict my identity" to "off"
    set "show my number" to yes

    i am going to blaspheme here but my nolia pc suite software allowed for linking to the pc for outlook sync and music/media transfer as does the DM.

    But the suite also allowed for using the pc to read and transmit sms messages [via the phone] thus meaning at work i could simply connect to the pc and not touch the phone other than calls.

    Software like this would be good.

    is there a feature on the 8310 that allows me to see what apps are running at each time.

    e.g. on my pc i can hold down Alt + Tab and it will show what apps are running and allow me to choose what i want.

    This would be a good feature on the BB as it would mean i could ensure that apps are closed properly. I ask this cos i sometimes experienced leaving a browser open on my nokia and wanted to avoid that on my BB
