    Hey guys, just got my first blackberry. (curve with verizon). Right now, i am just playing with it because i am so accustomed to my curve. Just a few questions..

    I primarily use my phone for texting, not too much email.. So i set up the right side key to display my sms and mms, and turned off the alerts for a new email. My question is, when i get a new text, is it possible to have a notification come up on screen, that would say, "you have 1 new text", just like the alert you get when you have a missed call? This makes it much easier to respond to messages, and allows me to give a quick glance at the phone.

    Would this setting come with different themes? if so, which theme has this? Are any themes tailored towards texting? Also, I am assuming you can change the applications on the home page? how do i change these? I basically want my phone book, my texts, and opera mini.

    No. The BlackBerry will visually alert you with a small icon on the screen and the number of messages. It will look like the envelope in the guide below.

    I know that there will be a small envelope showing unread messages, but is it possible to have the "you have 1 new text message, read ignore"

    I also would like to know if its possible to change the keyboard lock.. Is it possible to set my trackball to unlock the phone, similarly to the treo? I feel pressing two buttons to unlock the phone will take too long.

    When u pull up the full menu, u can press the menu button when over a certain icon. Select "move". Move the icons u want on ur homepg to the top 4-5 icons. and this will chg ur homescreen icons.
    *note: if u chg themes, u have to redo this

    Hope this helped with that question. I don't think u can chg the missed text alert or the unlocking feature....at least not that I know of
