External Display

How do you change what is listed on the external display?  The help site says to click options, display, external notifications but it is not listed as an option on my Torch.

 

I'd like to remove calendar from external notifications b/c every time I open them to read a new message, I have to scroll down through all of my appointments for the next month,

Re: External Display

Wait, what model BlackBerry are you asking about?

 

The instruction you are reviewing refers to editing the external display on the flip or clamshell model 9670.

Re: External Display

Ok, that is what I thought... and those on-device instructions in the Help files are simply incorrect.

There is no "external" display on the Torch... that Help file refers to the Flip screen (9670 device yet to come), not the Torch.

Re: External Display

 

I realize now that I obviously am not using the correct term.  I thought that was what BB used to refer to the area I'm speaking of because that's all I could find in options or help.   However, what I am referring to is the area on the display between the volume button and search feature.  It's where notifications of new messages are housed.  However, whenever I choose this area, I am taken to a list of all upcoming appointments on my calendar before the messages are shown.  Do you have any idea how to change the settings for this area?  I thought it was reffered to notifications, which is how I ended up with external display (per help).  

 

One last question, you mentioned that the help section is incorrect on the Torch.  Is that for multiple topics?

 

Thanks for your helop.
