Just got my new 8830 yesterday and I can't yet tell back from front. I know I've already been swept off of my feet already coz I held him/her to sleep last night and couldn't let go. Found CB this morning and I'm hooked too.
I fell asleep twice last night trying to go thru' the manual and just couldn't crack it.
Some one please help me with pointers on what to do with it?
I'm in the same position as you. I just got my first BlackBerry (8320) a few hours ago. It seems like a whole new world to me. I am not use to it at all. everything I thought I knew about a cell phone is gone. I love how it looks and feels though. I'm just not use to it at all. I'm going to give it a try though. Any pointers or anything would be helpful.
1) GPS, you need an application like Google Maps or TeleNav. There are many others.
2) Themes are like "skins" or the graphic way the BB software is presented on screen. Options > Themes and try them out.
3) Not wonderfully. If you need a good IM application, try out JiveTalk. BeeJive :: JiveTalk mobile messenger - instant messaging to go
4) my mind reading skills are not so good
Thanks for the welcome. The first thing I need to do is get my custom ringtones on my BB. The defult one gets annoying. Does anyoen know how to assign ringtones to contacts so I can put a different ringtone for each contact?
Thanks everyone! I feel that I'm in good hands with all of you and the rest of the CB addicts.
OK... another question: Even with fear of sounding like a total !d!ot amongst you all seasoned users and abusers (LOL) I have a question to ask. (Please don't make fun of me) Do I download these apps on my computer with my bb connected via USB or do I download them directly from my bb's browser. :-D
