    Hey everybody, I hope I don't get flack for this -- because I'm such a lazy *** for not looking up these things myself. I was just wondering if some of you can answer some questions of mine.

    I've had my BlackBerry for a year and a half now. After the first 3 months of getting the BlackBerry, I canceled my data because I really had no use for it. Rogers Wireless just called today offering 3 months of unlimited data for any BlackBerry user who doesn't use the data -- like myself. It was absolutely free, and I was able to cancel anytime -- why not get 3 months of unlimited data?!

    So now that I'm back in the game, I have some questions that I want to get answered in order to get the most out of my BlackBerry.

    1) Is Hotmail still restricted to accounts that are 10 years or older? I do have one that I still use that's very old, but, except it's all for junk mail. All my important emails are from a newer account. Is there anyway to forward emails?

    2) Is there still no YouTube capabilities (for the 8100)? I know there was something called TinyTube -- but it was kinda crappy, no?

    ehh...I guess that's basically it.

    I added Facebook for BlackBerry and also the PIN exchange (by CrackBerry.com) on Facebook. It seems like WebMessenger is also free now, which is great. Anything else you guys can suggest? Anyways, I completed swiped clean my BB Messenger list because they were random strangers from these forums, but if you wanna add me and become a random-stranger-friend of mine, go straight ahead. I'm always looking for new friends...because I'm such a loser. Thanks guys!

    I haven't been able to retreive my hotmail emails on my BB, but that's why I got a gmail account.

    Youtube is not compatible with the 4.2x OS (correct me if I am wrong gurus), but is supposed to be compatible with 4.5.

    I Believe They (MSN) Will Start Pushing Your Mail.........When?!? I Don't Know!!

    But......

    My Friend Had A Hotmail Account And What I Did For Her Was Set Up A Mobile Alert For Her.


    Everytime She Would Get A New Email She Would Get An Automatic Text Notifying Her.

    I have a gmail account, but all my stuff is on my Hotmail account. It's where I got all my notifications for everything. It's going to take...years to switch all my e-mail subscriptions over...uhh... and then telling everyone about the switch...I tried forwarding emails over to the Hotmail account that works, but I don't get notified on my BB.

    The Hotmail mobile alert hasn't been working for me either.

    As far as MSN, it works fine with WebMessenger for me.

    Boo!

    You can actually use blueapple.mobi web video search.

    Opera Mini is a great app. Point your browser to "mini.opera.com"

    Gmaps/Gmail/Google Sync are good apps as well. Point your browser to "Google.com/m"

    If you would like a rss reader for news, sports & blogs, Viigo is great. Point your browser to "GetViigo.com/crackberry"

    Perfect! Viigo looks great. I have all the other applications (you guys mentioned) freshly downloaded an hour ago. Loving Opera Mini...it's great.
    As of now, I'm just forwarding all of my Hotmail e-mails to my @roger.blackberry.net e-mail, and it's working fine. Why didn't I think of that before? So stupid!

    Thanks guys.
