Re: It wont take pictures properly

I had same problem and tried all sorts with variable success so decided must be hardware problem. After evenings of close analysis, found problem to be keypad connector socket (causing false "c" pulse [cancel] when taking pressure off shutter button) AND camera module connector socket having too high resistance on some contacts. I solved problem by cleaning sockets and plugs with switch cleaner, careful scrubbing and cleansing. problem gone. Problem can be got around by using panaramic, multi shoot or frame mode - Wid

BlackBerry Tour: How to change contact pictures

With your BlackBerry Tour, you can assign each contact in your address book a picture, so that when that person calls you or when you call that person, their picture will show up on your screen. The contact picture can be any viewable picture stored on your BlackBerry, and setting one up is easy.

To add a picture to one of your contacts (or to change their existing picture) go to your contacts list and find that contact on the list. When that contact is highlighted, press the BlackBerry button (the one with seven dots that looks like a paw print) and scroll down the list of options until you see Add Picture, which should be pretty close to the bottom. Click the trackball, and a thumbnail list of your image files should pop up. (Some of the thumbnails might take a second to fully load.)

If there is a picture in that list that you want to use, just click the picture to select it. You can also go up to the top of the list and select Camera, which will allow you to take a picture at that moment and use that for the contact picture. Or you can go to Preloaded Pictures (right below Camera), which is a collection of different cartoonish profile pictures that come pre-installed on your BlackBerry.

Once you choose a picture, you'll see a message that says "Picture set." Now whenever you call that contact, that contact calls you, or you view their profile, that picture will appear. You can go back in at any time to change the picture by following the same process.

For all SE T6XX phone users

Hi to all T6XX users. I created this thread just to help you find most of

the tips and tricks that can be done on T6XX. Hope this will help

reduce searching and posting.
I tried them on my T610 with fw R3C002 and all of them work.

1. O.k, i'll start with the camera.
On phones with newer firmware, u can use the joystick to adjust

saturation and shutter speed (brightness).
Up/Down to increase/decrease brightness
Left/Right to adjust saturation.

There are shortcut in the camera function:
Press 1 to change the size of picture
2 to act/deact Night mode
3 to turn on/off Effects
4 to act/deact Timer

To prevent the software from compressing the pictures taken by the

camera, u should continuously tap the joystick or the camera button

until it ask Send-Save-Discard and the backgroung will become black.

After saving the picture, take another one and the phone will process

the previous picture and u should get a clear and sharp picture.
But the disadvantage is that the picture will take about 50-60kb

instead of 30-40kb.

2. Cut-Copy-Paste function (only available whn editing contacts in

Highlight the contact to be edited and press More and choose Edit

Contact. Now, for example if you have replace the number in Home by the

number in
Mobile, just highlight Mobile and press and hold * followed

by 1, the number will disappear. Highlight Home and press and hold *

followed by 3. The number will be pasted here.
Cut - press and hold * then 1
Copy - press and hold * then 2
Paste - press and hold * then 3

3. Add a ghost image (not ghost that
ur thinking of, i'm talking about

a hidden image) to a contact.
Add the image u want to the contact. Now in My Pictures, open the image

that u applied to the contact and rotate it. When u'll erase the image,

the phone won't say that the picture is in use. U can erase it and the

picture will stay applied to the contact. To see the image, u just have

to Go in Phonebook-Pictures.
---Please note that u can't move back the picture in My Pictures, so

backup the picture before doing this---

4. Highlighting texts.
When u are writing a message or anything else, u can highlight a

part of it so that it can be erased or formatted quickly. to do

that, press and hold a Volume Button and move the joystick to


5. Memory function in Calculator.
If u have save a number in memory when using the calculator, press the

Volume button +

6. Write text messages with the WAP button.
Create a new bookmark with any name and write mailto: in Address.
U can also use it as a template. For example if u want to create a new

text message with Hello already written in it, the address should be

written like that, mailto:Hello
That's a very nice trick as a new text message can be created with a

starting phrase already written using the WAP button.

7. How to get extra memory when it's full
Create an empty theme (without pictures) with Theme Creator, send it to

the phone.
ur memory is full and that u need some more memory to take

pictures or record sounds, apply the empty theme and u'll get extra

memory, the amount that will be freed up depends on the size actual

theme. Normally it frees up between 20-100kb.

I do not know to use a cell phone. At this moment, I need to send/recieve a call and take pictures. I cannot master these major two things.

Most of the phones now have two major buttons in the keypad. The green one is used to answer calls and the red one to decline or end a call.

For taking pictures, just locate the camera option on your phone then press the shutter button or the camera icon to take a picture.
