Tuning up my new Curve
Just got a Curve with Sprint, and I'm looking for some guidance on what I should do to get this thing into tip top shape. Upgrade the OS? Move to a new browser? Get rid of some of the software that came installed on it? Move to a different GPS application? Is there a sticky, or "guide for new Curve owners" that goes through some of the recommendations? (First BB I've owned away from corporate ones, which were locked down on software modifications).
Any recommendations welcome. Thanks.

Upgrading to 4.5 will definitely enhance your Curve experience. Optimizing your file free memory will make your Curve run smoother and give you more space for apps that you actually use. To learn how to do this, go here: http://forums.crackberry.com/f3/how-...-memory-34633/.
After you upgrade to 4.5, your default browser will run pretty smoothly. If your looking for something different, there are a bunch of 3rd party browser apps out there to choose from. Personally, I use OperaMini 4.2 and the default browser.

Yeah, just like MaNy said. Check out that memory page.
I would keep Sprint Nav if I was you though. It's the best Nav program that I've been able to find
22.214.171.124 is the lastest OS. Be very careful when upgrading though. Make sure to look up the proper upgrade procedures.
I love 4.5 by the way. No issues that I have found.

I got my new Curve last Sunday and so far have installed:
BBToday 1.6 (make sure it's this version, previous ones have a weather update glitch)
Viigo for my RSS
MyAlarm so i can have my Berry play reveille in the morning and inform me to get my **** out of bed
Opera, even though I use the default browser alot, it's nice having the full html if needed.
Probably will install a few games here and there later.

Their talking about OS (Operating System) software for your device (v4.5). You can find official versions of this software that are compatible with your device at blackberry's official site. You can also find beta versions all over the internet. To learn more about how to properly upgrade your device's OS, click here: http://forums.crackberry.com/f3/prop...ocedure-53359/
Go to OPTIONS/ABOUT to see which OS version and platform your running.
