    Yes I took notes. Better yet, I'm going to print out the lectures so I can study every class after work.

    Great lecture Kevin! Very informative. I look forward to Mondays now!

    Thank you very much!

    A few months ago I received in the mail a course for $750 or $850 for classes to learn about the blackberry. I don't recall what company was offering it because I tossed the paper out. Since belonging to this forum, there was no need to join those classes.

    And now you have given us all the best gift ever: free lessons to learn more about the blackberry! You really are priceless Kevin and I thank you again for these lectures. We all think you are awesome...........well I do anyway!

    Thanks, Kevin! I'm glad I sat in on the lecture! Can't wait for Part II, although I already have and love and obsess over my 8830.

    Great class Kevin!

    I use to dread Mondays at work because it's always a zoo but now that you have these classes, I find Mondays most enjoyable and informative!

    The guest speaker for lessson 2 was great, and the speech on BES vs. BIS was very informative. That's great there will be more classes! I can't wait until Wednesday! :-)

    Agreed with all the above. Great guest lecture, and I'm stoked to have class twice a week!!!

    Loved the class. Lots of good information and well written.

    I do have a question - Is the single license BES as protected and stable as the larger BES server that companies use?

    Is anyone here using the single license BES? I am considering it, but would like to actually hear from someone who already uses it.

    Hey Class,

    Some of you may see this as a good thing, others may see it as a bad thing. The "second" class scheduled for this Wednesday (today) is canceled.

    I've been sick the last couple of days (starting to feel better but still out of whack), and I'm just not quite done on the lecture. I want it to be GOOD...so didn't want to cut it short just to get it up.

    Look for "How to Choose the Right BlackBerry For You" on Monday...regular schedule in effect!

    Thanks for the understanding,

    Glad to hear you're feeling better. We just hope that you weren't playing hookie

    I think next weeks lesson is going to be great as I know there are many who don't know how to choose.

    Great lecture, a little late for me, but I feel like you knew that since you all but called me out by name...

    you’re itching to get the new BlackBerry Curve you’ve seen a couple of your co-workers with. You head on down to the local AT&T outlet (you need to be on AT&T where you live), and you pick one up today. You come home, use it for a couple of weeks, LOVE IT, and BANG…AT&T releases the BlackBerry 8310.
    It's like you know me, and were sitting next to me as I did this last week.
    But at least I went through MOST of your process.

    Lecture 4: The Basics of Setting Up Your BlackBerry is now online!

    I'm thinking about maybe moving the Lectures to Tuesday from Monday. Sunday is my writing day for these, but if things come up I can't always get it up straight for Monday morning. If we go with Tuesdays, then I can be sure it's up first thing. Thoughts?
