Working at RIM lets me
play work with a lot of BlackBerry® smartphones. Since I’m switching to new ones all the time, I thought I’d share what I do when I migrate.
1. Go through the setup wizard, which will configure the device and my email.
2. Change the font size. I like a small font size so I can see more of a message at once. You can change the font size in Options (the wrench icon)-> Screen/Keyboard.
3. Arrange my apps on the home screen. There are some apps I never use so I hide those. My top row of applications are my most used apps – Work email, personal email, BlackBerry® Messenger, Google Talk™, calendar and browser. To rearrange the applications, I just select the app, hit the menu button, and hide/move the application.
5. PING!!! my friend Tim on his smartphone to let him know that I’m on a new device. It makes him jealous.
So, what do you do when you first get your device?
