    Tips and Tricks

    Thought it would be a good idea to have people post their personal tips or tricks to using the Pearl, maximizing effciency, or just some cool nugget of wisdom in one centralized location.

    Post away!

    Here is a real basic one but very useful: To close a program, instead of simply pushing the red button (which doesn't actually close the program) go through the menu button and do it. Or if you are at your home screen and want to delete programs running to improve battery effeciency, hold down alt (the button with the down black arrow, up grey arrow in bottom left corner) and press the escape button (first button on right next to trackball). This will display running programs and you can close all but the main 5 (browser, call log, home screen, messages and blackberry messenger [or so mine seems]).
