New Sprint BB User
First time BB Owner Here!!!! Just picked up a BNIB Sprint BB Curve 9350 off CL and look forward to finally using a BB. In the past I have had tons of phone including Windows, Android, WebOS and iOS. Look forward to becoming an active member of the boards.
What is the best way to access this site directly from my new device?
What are some good threads for me to review before asking noobish questions for my specific device or for BB in general?
Hope to be able to contribute to the boards here in the future!

Hello and welcome to BlackBerry and CrackBerry.
I would start by saying there are many cool thread to read on CB but you could start by changing your phone from universal search (the default setting) and using application launcher.
What that will do is allow you to launch applications from the keyboard by just touching one key. One of the launches is H. Help. It has the top ten questions on how to, top ten customization, top ten shortcuts, etc. Pretty nice.
You will also be able to launch:
Calendar - L
Address Book - A
Search - S
Browser - B
Calculator - U
Messages - M
BBM - N
Saved Messages - V
Also, you can call voicemail by holding down the 1 key and assign speed dial to a key and holding down the Q will toggle between vibrate and normal ring. Pretty cool stuff IMO.
Anyway, if you are interested in this you can just him the BlackBerry/menu key from the home screen and then select options. It will land you in Universal Search. Just select it and drop it to App Launcher and save.
I hear you have FM radio on your device but with Sprint there is not data limits so not as critical as with other carriers. Anyway, I hope you also consider BBM Music.
Other apps I love are:
BB Traffic - free voice navigation and great time estimates on ETAs.
BB Protect - find your BB from any computer/wipe/message/etc.
Hope this helps you get started and do jump into the forums. There are thousands of people reading them each day and someone will have the answer you are looking for.
Enjoy your new BlackBerry.My BlackBerry. Just love it, love it, love it.
