    Ok - a gold star to the first person to identify the movie line

    Hello all. While this is my first post here, I've been lurking for awhile. Really started visiting a lot as I was researching the pre-release info for the Storm. Based on all the info I found here and other places, I decided against the Storm and got my new Bold yesterday.

    I am coming from T-Mobile and a Sidekick LX, which I am still very fond of. For those of you not familiar with it, it is an excellent messaging device. The OS is really a pleasure to deal with, very stable and fast w/ fantastic shortcuts...not to mention the best keyboard I've ever used. It's got a really nice screen also. I used it primarily for messaging, surfing (Mobile/wap sites) and calls.

    Despite my affection for the Kick, I began considering the Storm because the thought of 3G, better call quality, GPS/Nav, wider coverage for voice & data, and a better camera, all without sacrificing messaging excellence was appealing. I chose the Bold to get the features and still have a full QWERTY.

    So here I is!

    My first full day with the Bold wasn't a stellar one because I couldn't get voice or data service in my office, which is high up and about 2 feet from big windows. Hopefully, that problem won't be permanent or me and my Bold might have to break up

    I've already got several questions to see if I can tweak the Bold to be as user friendly as my sidekick, so I'll probably be posting lots in the Bold forum. See you guys around.

    Peas Out!

    Ok, here's my 1st newb question: can I set an audible notification of incoming emails and texts?

    I looked in the Getting Started Guide, as well as the onscreen menu but couldn't find an answer.

    As it is right now, I wouldn't know I have new messages unless I looked at the face of the phone and saw the red light flashing.

    Thx for the star lol. Go into your profiles, and go to the bottom and select advanced. You can change each profile individually for sms, emails, calls and bb msg. Check out the ringtones on CB to find some free ones.

    Newb Question #2 for Schaid or anyone: I periodically get 2 icons in the upper toolbar that aren't listed in the start guide.

    The first one is a square, that has 2 little green sqaures overlapping it at the top left corner and the bottom right corner. Any idea?

    The second one is a lock that is unlocked. I'll guess that means it is for an unsecured webpage I am receiving/browsing?
