    To be honest I really dont think of my phone as some of you do. I really dont see anything that makes it stand out amongst other phones. Maybe you can suggest some apps or something to make me enjoy my phone better.

    What don't you like about it? What kinds of things are you into that there might be apps for that we could suggest? Gaming? News?

    And do you have a data plan. That will make all kinds of difference
    Without one, you are right, it's just a phone.

    I dont think that people should use the pearl as a bb user because it for some reason it doesnt have the same effect. Its smaller so u dont get the use of the qwerty or the bigger screen. Its pretty annoying if you ask me.

    I love my pearl. I don't need the qwerty and bigger isn't always better. LOL

    Do a search for apps on here and see what interests you if you don't already know what you want out of your phone.

    there are lots of free themes you should search for them and you will find them, but you also have to realize that someone put lots of time and effort into that theme and for them to charge for it is well deserved, if you want a free theme try making one and you will appreciate them more when paying for them

    i love my pearl. i would say make it your best friend/assistant. there are plenty of free apps. put news, weather, entertainment, blogs, social networks like facebook or whatever u like at your fingertips. then load it up with your favorite ringtones, pictures, and other media. then fill in your calender and tasks, adjust your settings to personalize it.

    soon you'll be checking it every 5 minutes because it has everything u need. you'll never get tired of it because u can always change it up.

    i know with my old VZW dumb phone i got bored all the time. no internet and the only thing i could really download was games.

    i dont think i can go back to a regular phone now. with the pearl i will admit the SureType takes some getting used to but once u get used to it you'll either love it or hate. i loved it once i got all my favorite words into the custom dictionary and could type without looking the keys or screen.

    some apps i would suggest for u are beyond411 (for search, yellow pages, maps and directions), some type of weather app, whatever IM u use (yahoo, aim, whateva), viigo is also a great app!!! and there are plenty of threads on here with OTA downloads of software and apps. there is also a 3rd party software forum on here

    Pearls are real berries cdc2003 lol!!!!

    I love the pearl. I love the fact that it is the same size as a regular phone but does everything the bigger bulkier blackberries do. I may switch to a curve in the future or the 9000 when it comes out but for now I get plenty of use out of my pearl.

    There are a lot of cool themes and wallpapers out there. Check gemblock.com for some cool free themes. Also try themes4bb.com. Also check the thread about what people's screens look like - there's a lot of theme and wallpaper info there. This site has a ton of cool wallpapers.

    I don't watch a lot of video on my phone, but I can tell you that if you're into music you should check out muitunes.com. They have a great music player app that's free to beta testers.

    Well I do love my pearl. I love the size and the fact I can do just about eveything from my pearl. I don't thing that the SureType thing is bad at all once you get used to it. It took me about a day to get the hang of it now I'm a sure type champ! Its the best phone I ever had!

    I love my pearl! In fact the small size makes me love it more because it has everything that a BB needs to have in that small package and its convenient to carry in my regular holster. I love compactness and bigger devices dont impress me. SureType is a breeze to learn and makes typing so much cooler as compared to other phones....plus email/internet/IM adds to the whole BB experience.

    The whole reason I GOT a Pearl is because I'm a pocket carrier.
    Its small, light, doesn't flip or slide or move AND can play music, videos, lump my emails together and get on the internet easily when I'm bored. Plus, blackberries are very user friendly and not picky with apps like an iphone.
    As for good, free themes, they can usually be found pretty easily with a little patience.

    It all boils down to preference. Some like it small and others like the full screen and full qwerty.

    I guess the pearl works for some people just not me.

    Do a search for colorpearl. That is a cool little app exclusive to the pearl.

    Keep in mind colorpearl doesnt work for the new pearls because they only have a white LED under thier trackball. The older pearls (8100) did have colored trackball LED's so that app worked for them.

    I really didn't like the Curve...but my Pearl...mmmmmm

    It's definitely preference. Some people just seem to have a strong dislike for the Pearl, for whatever reason. Personally Suretype is faster than Qwerty for me, and the size is perfect.
