Hello. downloaded and installed the new software - works great so far.
How do I go about setting a password for the phone? Under Options --> Security Options, I dno't see a "General Settings" where it seems like most internet forums say I need to set a password here.
Try this go to options>security options>advanced security options> keystores
Sorry for my double post earlier - computer problems.
and thanks for your previous answer. however, what I really want a password for you to unlock the phone. I can't find where to do that in the new 5.0 OS. instead of the * (and) green-send key to unlock, I wanted it to require a password.
The info up above, after I enabled it, doesn't see to make this happen.
Have you tried looking here...?
No need to feel that way at all.
I myself get used to working problems from a certain angle for so long that I forget that there may be another angle to look at. :D
I do, but apart from that build OS is awesome, I love it! So many new features, its like a brand new phone, Superb.
I dont agree with this chap BlackBerrySites Official BlackBerry 5.0 OS Walkthrough Video! - Official BlackBerry 5.0 OS Walkthrough Video! | BlackBerrySites.com at all, I think its way and above how he describes it.

the double click thing with the trackball is getting way outta hand for me.
other then that i love this os.
the double click with just pushing the track ball once just seems to be getting worse.
but the double click thing is like this.
lets say your on a message and want to open it, you push the track ball once but it takes it as a double click so it will go to a whole other option or whatever menu is after.
i often find myself resending pictures to people because when i click on the picture i sent, it takes me 1 click as 2 and clicks it to open it, then hits the resend button on the extra click i didnt do.
if this isnt a problem with yours let me know.
i seen someone else post this issue but havent heard much else on it, perhaps i need to wipe and do a reinstall if it doesnt happen to u.
please keep me posted.
anyone else have this prob?
my co-worker has been running the vodafone on his ATT 9000 for a day now and loves it, he reports no issues
Having loaded 9000j_PBr5.0.0_rel661_PL184.108.40.206_A220.127.116.111_Bell_Mobility_In c.exe (9000EastAsia_v18.104.22.1681_P22.214.171.124) onto my 9000, I am pleased to report that the Japanese Input option CAN be activated with rim9000.sfi included in this package.
Please note that net_rim_font_emoji.cod (Emoji - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) (NOT animated) has been added in OS 5. Consequently, Emoji fonts (picture character fonts) appear in Symbols when the Japanese Input option is active.
