    I have been using that keyboard for over a year. What particular
    insight (note correct spelling) are you looking for.

    By the way it is d i g i t s not d i d g i t s
    But it's nice to see you got that punctuation thing down

    How hard is it to sync with the pearl? Some of my Bluetooth stuff syncs right up but other BT items take forever to sync. And will I have to intall amything into my BB to make the keyboard work.

    It does not sync with the Pearl. It does not take very long to get
    it paired. The one thing I can tell you is whatever drivers come
    with it, ditch it and download the most current drivers from
    the website.

    Also, the instructions that came printed were a bit "sketchy" but
    if you follow along carefully, you should not have an issue.

    If you do PM me and I can walk you through it.

    It really is an awesome k/board. I type out some very
    long emails and it is a godsend for that. Also for those
    long BBM conversations it is an absolute must for me.
    Don't get me wrong, I appreciate both my Pearl and
    Curve, but there are time when I just don't want to
    type with my thumbs.

    That is my reason for getting one. Since I got my pearl I hardly get on my pc. All my email and im are done on my pearl and a portable keyboard would be nice for long messages. Plus I won it for 30 bucks and shipping so I got a deal on it.

    $30 was an excellent deal. You'll be happy with it I'm sure. I use
    mine quite often. But make no mistake, even with an external
    k/board your BB will never really be an adequate substitute for
    a proper computer. Not Ever.

    My mother checked my mail today my keyboard is in. I can't wait to get out of this hospital to use it.

    Hi I am trying to use an Irxon KB850 with my Pearl 8120. It seems to pair ok but there is no functionality. If I press keys it does not seem to do anything on the phone (it works fine with my PC).
    Is there any software which I need to load on the phone for this to work? Thanks
