    the device is worth it, just pick a method and buy it
    at this rate, the successor will be out

    More registry hacks i found (never thought playing with playing with the registry would let me find so much!)

    Mute Function:
    \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\JogBar\Settings\
    EnableRingVolumeMute
    change to 1.
    (thanks to xda-developers)

    Hide JOGGR Icon (bar beside BT):
    \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\JogBar\Settings\
    EnableHTCJogBarIcon
    Change to 0

    Lunar Calendar:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Calendar\
    ShowLunarCalendar
    Change to 1
    (i haven't actually tested this as i haven't figured out how to disable papyrus as the default manager, anyone know?)

    To disable roaming triangle:
    HKLM/Drivers/BuiltIn/RIL/DisableRoamingIndicator
    Set it to 1
    (thanks to sabesh)

    i know, price wise, the t-mobile option is probably better for you
    it wasn't really a viable option for me when i got mine
    if you're expecting a price drop, it won't be much for a while

    Another good one! And thanks again for the app, the edits were painless lol Of course, I did back up the registry first just in case.

    you're welcome
    i'm not sure what you mean by the app though

    i also tested out the lunar calendar function just now and couldn't get it to work, so ignore that edit.

    Lame Tip

    I don't know if this is a tip or not, but it was a quickie thing on my S620 that I stumbled across. I have facade installed, so I don't know if it's part of that or the phone itself.....you will have to try.

    At the home screen, press the back arrow <- key and it will go to the task manager to close or switch between open programs.

    A quick step rather than going through the menu system.

    I tried to set to 1 in order to disable the roaming triangle but it says "access is denied" any ideas?

    Question E-Mail and AIM on the Dash

    I don't have a tip but I hope someone has the trick to help me out.

    1. How do I keep my email (POP3 setup) from deleting mail on my server? I would prefer that the client left the messages on the server.
    2. Is there a way to create folders when using a POP3 setup? I am not using the Outlook setup.
    3. And now to AIM. AIM appears to work fine when I am chatting with someone consistently but if the chat stops for awhile and then someone starts chatting again I get nothing unless I tell AIM to refresh the list. Its like I lose my connection. Is there another app that is better than the one that comes on the Dash?

    Any help with these would be greatly appreciated. E-Mail and AIM seem to be my biggest gripes. Thanks.

    ~Jennifer
