    Well I finally received a working Blackberry 3G 9100 today {Here's The Story}. This is my second model BB, my first was the 8220. Here's a little of what I went though with it {Need Advice}

    I must say with what I've discovered so far I'm pretty happy with, the infamous gap between the screen & keyboard also seems to be less noticeable with this replacement.

    The apps that I've had on my BB 8220 were Poynt {I strongly recommend this app to any bb users, by far my favourite and most used app}. WeatherEye, Ka-glom {addictive game}, ScoreMoblie and Shazam {which I can't seem to find for the 9100}.

    The apps I look forward to trying now that I have GPS are Trapster & SMRTGuard. So I just wanna hear which apps you all running.

    Another observation I've made with only a few hours to play with is that I can't combine my SMS with my messages, on my 8220 SMS, MMS & my messages {email} were all under one icon. Secondly I can't type text messages then select the contact now either, I'm notorious for sending blank messages prematurely. My only solution was to make the message then select the contact. I'll also add that I had no problems deleting multiple messages like others have brought up, I'm still running 5.0.0.748.

    I would recommend you to consider upgrading to os 6. The latest leaked package is really good. Otherwise, you have os 5 972. You can combine SMS with your emails, just go to options in messages and search the option that allows you to do that.

    I'm using some medical software, repligo reader, blackberry presenter, a couple of games from app world, im plus talk, and the ones from RIM.

    I recommend Bt sidekick especially if you travel. Its free, automatically finds your location and gives you the nearest services you need. Like gas stations, atm, pharmacies and weather updates and more.

    Yeah I'm running TD Bank App as well. Just thought it was little localized to be posting on a international site. If you've found a way to zoom in on the maps I'd love to hear how it's done, as that could come in vary handy for me {finding atm's & all}. Not sure why BB App World doesn't have Shazam for the Pearl 3G but it is available for download.

    Download Shazam for Mobile

    Love this device, especially with an Otterbox case that prevents screen dust accumulation.

    I posted this in the 9100 section to find out which apps work for "OUR" devices. How did it end up within the apps section!?
