I have had my Blackberry Curve since last spring and still do not find it user friendly. The online guide states how to make categories for the memo pad but stops there and does not explain how to save new memos within those categories. I go back and forth and cannot figure out how to do it. After pressing many buttons I finally manage to get it where it belongs but have no idea how and when I try adding another go through the same thing. I had a Palm previously; it was so easy, just make the cateogry, click on it and then click add new. Now I click on the category, then new memo and after that the entry goes into outer space somewhere because I cannot find it. Just clicking save does not work. Sometimes I can find the entire list of items in every category but cannot figure out how I did it because there is no actual option to do that. I often wish I had gone with a different smartphone but am locked in now for another 2+ years with basically a phone but nothing else. I am still using the smartphone part of my Palm for data, memos, etc., because it is so much easier to use; unfortunately I cannot get another battery for it so its use wll be gone when the battery does. .I wanted a smartphone so I just had to carry one device; now I am back to carrying two, a Palm PDA and a Blackberry phone. .

I guess no one else finds it user friendly either so cannot help me. I notice most posts here get no replies so it was obviously a mistake to ask my question here. I will continue to use my Palm for memos and data and forget entirely that my Blackberry is supposed to be a smartphone because it obviously is not. It is just a very expensive phone with no smart to it at all. I am locked into a contract so it will be 2+ years before I can swtich to another, more user friendly, device.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
I notice that most posts don't get answered in here too. Personally it really upsets me that people come in here because they need help yet they don't receive it. What's the point of having this if you're not going to get helped?
Really? I don't notice that...indeed, I notice quite the opposite...the volunteers here try very hard to at least answer every post. Sometimes, amidst their equally-busy lives, they cannot or simply don't have anything useful for a particular situation. But I don't see that as a reasonable indictment of this entire site...but each can hold their own opinions, I suppose.
I'm glad you were able to provide this poster with some information...do, of course, understand that, since the poster was last in this thread way back in October of 2011, it may well be unlikely that they ever will see your helpful reply.

Actually I did get these replies in my e-mail, thanks. However, I did finally toss the Blackberry and got an iPhone. It is so much easier to use, right out of the box I was able to make calls whereas it took me some considerable time to figure out how to even do that with the BB. And the Memo section on it great, very easy to use, not to mention the other basic apps like calendar and contacts. Very user friendly. .
