    I have used PDA's and Smart Phones over the years most recently the VX6800 (hated that phone) so I upgraded to a BlackBerry Tour yesterday. Love it already!

    Here is my first of what may be many questions. Does the USB cord that comes with the phone allow for charging as well?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes, the USB cord will do both data transfering and charging, at the same time. When you plug it into your computer, as long as it finds the drivers for the phone, you will see the battery charging icon appear, which is just a little icon that looks like a lighting bolt, over top the battery life meter.

    Oh and welcome to the Crack!

    Where can you download the drivers? (if your computer doesn't recognize your device)

    You can usually get them right from RIM. The same place where you go to get the DM software.
