Store telephone numbers in
the Address Book with the extension added to the end.
e.g. 712-555-5555 x104
When the number is dialed, the BlackBerry will wait for 2 seconds then dial the extension.
To change the default of 2 seconds, go to: Phone > Options > Smart Dialing > To access extensions in all other corporations, call the number, then Wait for: 2 seconds
BlackBerry Web Client for: AT&T / Cingular, Verizon
Use the BlackBerry Web Client to adjust options regarding your BlackBerry e-mail service.
Manage the size of your mailbox by setting auto-aging rules to permanently delete messages from your account.
If you are receiving "BlackBerry WebClient Mailbox Full" messages, then setting auto-aging rules to delete messages after one day is probably a good place to start. You may still need to log into the BlackBerry Web Client to delete messages to free up space in your mailbox.

Pressing ALT+CAP+DEL will reboot your BlackBerry. (Press and hold down each key in succession and together, like CTRL+ALT+DEL on a PC)
You may need to pres ALT+CAP+DEL twice in succession.
No data will be lost.

If you get the above error message, you may have too many messages and the BlackBerry is running low on memory.
When on the phone and another call comes in, the BlackBerry switches to the screen that allows you to choose whether to Answer - Hold Current, Answer - Drop Current, or Ignore.
If the choices on the call waiting screen are scrambled, and you are unable
to see which choice is which, try the fix below.
The screws that hold the case together may come loose over time, and may fall out without warning. Check your case screws on a regular basis. You'll need a No. 6 Torx screwdriver.
