8700 Tips

Q: On my 8700 when the phone rings the volume is very low and I have it set to the maximum allowed, how can I fix this?

A: This is a known issue and will hopefully be fixed with a later OS Update. Until then, place a call using the speaker phone and turn the volume to the maximum setting. After you end the call your ringtone will be nice and loud.

Community Feedback: This problem also affects “special rings” you may select for people. The solution suggested above works perfectly!

Q: Why will my home screen shortcuts not work?

A: To fix this go to Phone > Options > General Options and set ‘Dial from home screen’ to ‘OFF.’

Q: How do I move or hide icons on my home screen?

A: Hold down the alt key and push in the track wheel while on the home screen. You’ll then see options to move, hide or show all.
Q: Why does the Time Zone get set to Eniwetok (-12) and my Input Method get set to catala after I dock and undock my blackberry? How do I prevent these options from being reset?

A: Upgrade to Blackberry Desktop Manager latest version. Known bug with Vista and v4.1
