    Thanks for the great tips.

    Question - when I do Alt Escape (the button under end call/power) I see the running applications. Even when I go to the application, menu, close it still appears in the list when I alt-escape again. This is especially the case with Blackberry Messenger, Blackberry Browser and Mail. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance
    I always thought those were quick access applications that you last used, kind of like the quick icons in the start menu in Windows.

    BTW, great guide, didn't know about the bedside option on the external LCD, it always bugged me that it stayed on all the time and made the surface a little warm. Also disabling GPS gives me the "911 only" option, which I think is basically off.

    Probably below halfway, that's where mine usually is at the end of the day but once in a while it hits the red line.

    I charge my phone every night no matter how much battery is left. On the occasions that I intentionally red-line the battery, I run it until the phone says the battery level is too low for the mobile radio and switches it off.

    I understand that you should turn off the Wifi to extend your battery life, but when I do I am unable to make phone calls or send text messages because it says "the radio is off". Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for your help!

    Still have such problems with my 8220. Battery power lasted a total of 15 hours today and I never even opened the phone! Thought maybe my original battery wasn't very good so purchased a new one. Fully charged it for 24 hours and it only lasted 17 hours before going totally dead. I have friends with the Storm and they get a couple of days out of a battery charge. Is this just a flip problem?

    Although the Pearl Flip takes the same C-M2 battery as the original Pearl, the Flip battery compartment is a tighter fit and I don't think it will accommodate a marginally larger extended battery that would fit the original Pearl. Seidio makes an long range battery for the Flip but it's huge and comes with an extended battery cover. IMO it ruins the whole look of the Flip.

    I think this has broader appeal than just the Pearl Flip, 85XX users, heck ANY earlier model BB users can use these tips, GOOD STUFF!!!! I'm going to move this thread to our main Tips, How To, and FAQ Forum!
