Re: Storm questions: memo pad, Roxio manager

Hi and welcome to the forums!

 

Look in the applications folder for the memopad.

Make sure you scroll all the way to the top inside the folder as the first line of icons

is not always where the display starts.

On the Roxio manager question by "continually wants to load" please explain the message you see.

Is it an error message? A request?

Thanks,

Re: Memo Pad & Tasks are checked in Applications but show up nowhere on my homepage?

I have the newest version of Storm and in spite of looking at and checking to see that all of my Applications settings are as discussed on these posts, I still cannot see (nor get) either the Memo Pad or Tasks icons to appear on my home page.  Everything is checked in Applications.  When I go to my Home Page and go into Menu there are no options indicated to "Show All".  The bottom line is I just cannot "find" nor figure out how to get the icons to appear on my home page.

 

Any immediate help on this would be truly appreciated.

When you are on your homescreen and press the BBKey (twice if you are in portrait), there is no "Show All" on that menu? That is very very odd...I suggest a reboot:

  • Anytime random strange behaviors creep in, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot -- ~5 minutes. See if things have returned to good operation. Like all computing devices, BB's suffer from memory leaks and such...with a hard reboot being the best cure.

 


Further, if you go to

  • Options > Advanced Options > Applications

are "MemoPad" and "Tasks" listed?

 

Best!

Re: Memo Pad & Tasks are checked in Applications but show up nowhere on my homepage?

Thanks for your very timely response.  I did a battery "pull" and it added back all of the applications that were missing.  I thank you for the information.  As an aside, I had downloaded the application called "quickpull" which simulates the actual battery pull.  One would think that it would work as effectively as the actual battery pull, but obviously it didn't.  So, thanks again for the information it worked.

Excellent! I'm glad it worked! You are most welcome.

 

BTW -- QP is a great app, I have it run every night. But, it still is a batt-pull simulation...nothing can truly conduct a batt-pull reboot except for physically pulling the battery. Sometimes a true one is indeed required.

 

Cheers!

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Please be more explicit about exactly what you have already attempted and exactly what you witnessed from each attempt. There are many things posted in this thread and one of them really should have worked out...so please be more explicit.

 

Thanks!
