    1. Delete the unused languages, pictures, etc., that you know you won't be using.

    ...unpack it all, and just sit and look at the 'wonder' of BlackBerry for about five minutes!

    Oh, then get:
    1. Viigo
    2. Beam Berry
    3. The respective IM application that you want (Yahoo, AIM, etc)
    4. EMpower 's HTML Viewer
    ...ok, who's next?

    Download Google Maps, Setup your e-mail, Setup your ringtones, download Empower, put the Crackberry wap link on your home screen (this should be done first), kiss your blackberry, sync it up with your computer and get familiar with the syncing functions, hug your Blackberry, and download ESPN mobile, and a cool new theme! These are all the cool new things I did when I first got mine! Welcome to the club and feel free to fire away with any ???

    Is there any reason to get beamberry on my 8830? It seems to already open PDF files and also lets me save pictures to my media card.

    I'm all about getting my shortcuts optimized - hide the unused ones, get my top row set in the order i always use them, and never waiver.. every new berry i get i always arrange them the same way

    oh, and though it's not a setting thing, i'm an accessories lover. need a good case immediately (i like seidio's holster for my curve) , NEED a memory card if you want to have any fun with your berry, and i'm all about the bluetooth. have a Bluant Supertooth speakerphone for the car, and have a jawbone and blueant z9 lying around for everyday use and motorola s9s for the gym

    I've went 4 months without a memory card and it was driving me crazy. Finally, I found a 4gb microSDHC for $31. Yay me...
