    Just got my first Blackberry two days ago.
    Getting use to the touch screen. This phone has tons of features and I'm getting overloaded right now.

    Question...How do I hide the icons that I won't be using that often?
    I'm looking at using maybe 5 on a daily basis until I start getting use to all the bells/whistles .

    Welcome to BBOS dingo. To hide icons, hit the Blackberry button then hit hide.

    Dingo,

    Only hid icon you will never use. (example, i dont use icq, yahoo, or any of the messenger programs so i did all the icons.)

    hope that helps

    You can move your not regulary used icons to a folder. highlight the icon you want to move hit the bb button and select move to folder. Then a widow will pop up and it will have all your folders in it. Just select one and your done. You can also create folders! I create a folder called CRAP! That has all the icons I never use in it! All you have to do to create a folder is... Hit the bb button scroll down to create folder name it and hit ok. Side note... before you hit ok, if you click the little folder up in the left hand side of your screen... A window will popup and you will be able to select the style of the folder.

    I got my storm about a month ago and so far I LIKE it, but I'm not in love with it like I was expecting. I think part of it is I moved from a flip phone with 0 features, to the Storm. The transition is somewhat overwhelming to say the least hehe. I use my Storm for facebook, texting, occasional web browsing, and of course my calls, but I know it is capable of 8 zillion things. I'm just not used to thinking of the phone as anything more than a phone.

    Anyway, I guess I was wondering if anyone had some useful "tips for beginners" that would help me get a little bit more out of the phone. Or something you discovered when you were new to this type of thing that just made you go "WOW!" Things I might find useful, things I'll probably never touch and should remove from the phone, etc. I know everyone's experience is different, and people have different interest/uses/etc. But I guess I'm trying to train myself to the "mindset" of a smart phone.

    Also this is probably just part of the design, but, when the phone is in landscape mode and I press the bottom of the screen (spacebar), it feels really spongy like I'm going to break it. I tried doing that thing where you stick the business card under the battery but that didn't seem to do anything, is there a way to tighten the screen suspension or something?

    Thanks for any tips/advice!
    Welcome to BBOS. I hope that our staff was able to help you with some tips and tricks to help you love your storm. Try some of the hybrids out and your experience will dramatically change with the storm. Best Wishes
