Bold newbie here - Where to start?
Just received my new Blackberry Bold on Orange (UK) and have just set it down to charge. I am a Crackberry virgin so will prob take me a lil while to get used to it.
Was wondering other than sit down with the instructions and have a lil play about with it does anyone have any advice as to anything I should do right from the start, or any applications I should look to install straight away.
Thanks guys n gals

Hi and welcome
I read the Newbies tab from end to end when I first found this place, and learned more in an afternoon than I would ever do with the manual.
Once I got started it was pretty intuitive, but I still keep finding quicker easier ways to do things.

Welcome to CB and congrats on getting your new Bold.
Read, read and read some more, you will learn more from this forum than any manual
As for applications, if anything appeals to you just try them out! Anything you decide you don't like can be deleted.

You may not actually be in a 3G area if you're only getting EGDE.
I only get 3G right in the middle of my City but not in the outskirts where I live, I only get EDGE.
What OS are you running & Do you know if you're in a full 3G area ?
P.S - Welcome to the forum, you'll learn everything you need to know here.
