    forgot to add that there are tons of applications, games, themes, wallpapers, ringers, etc for you to download onto your blackberry. a lot of them are free and wallpapers/ringers can be found at crackberry and throughout the forum. there's a major thread with tons of great wallpapers that you should check out...

    as for applications, it all really depends on what you're looking for. some popular ones are google maps, slacker, viigo, weathereye, etc. hope you find what you need and if you have questions, feel free to ask as there are helpful people here to guide you on feeding your new found addiction!

    Phone more than anything else. A ton of email. BBM, web browsing,
    PDA function. The only thing I don't do is text (annoys me to no end)

    I've only had my curve for a few weeks but I'm using it for so much more than I thought I would. I even canceled my landline to save a little money and only use my bb for phone. I use it to check the weather and my email before even getting out of bed and last week I learned about putting ebooks on it. I'm reading a Dean Koontz novel on it now.

    There's a shopping list program called Maratick. At first I didn't think it was that useful but after reading some posts, I took a 2nd look at it. It is so handy, I used it yesterday grocery shopping. You hit the space bar each time you check off an item on the list and it moves it to the bottom of the list.

    I had a windshield mounted Garmin that I didn't use much because I was afraid of someone breaking into my car, plus, I didn't really need to use it that often. I sold it on craigslist before getting this phone and the GPS in the phone is great. Tell me is a great app that will search for things by voice command. I can sit on my couch and say "pizza" and it brings up all the pizza places in my area.

    I am a contractor and just picked up Sprint curve 8350i.
    I am in a new world with this thing. I needed to upgrade my phone and just decided on the BB 8350i.
    I use QuickBooks for my entire business and I can save all my estimates in PDF file in Q Books. On the BB I use E Office and have access to my estimates and invoices on job. I have access to word docs from E Office.
    One neat thing is I have access to my PC in house with E Office remote server from anyplace. I use the email all the time and get the email when it is sent, and can reply to customers faster. I have internet access any time.
    E Office lets me also store files on their site and can access them in seconds.
    I like the contacts part and can email in seconds as well. I never felt like powering up laptop on construction site everytime I needed to do something but the BB makes it simple. I am staying with BB for long time.
    Upon editing, I forgot to mention that, yes I do make calls too (lol)

    Its easier to say what don't I use my BB for, and I must say that I can think the only things I really use my PC for these days are for gaming and downloading (from legal sources of course)

    I have been using mine for so much more than I thought I would. Obviously email, text messaging, web browsing, calendar, contacts, phone calls but I actually pay attention to the weather and news now. I really love the AP news application, but I'm still searching for the perfect weather application. I just recently became a blackberry user, but I can't imagine living without it.
