    THIS week, I bought a shiny new BlackBerry. This made me very happy. Then I went home and found that my new BlackBerry was inundating my in-box with copies of my sent e-mail messages. This made me very frustrated.

    ...

    I solved my BlackBerry problem on Crackberry.com’s forums (forums.crackberry.com/). Not only does the site break down problems by model, including Apple’s iPhone 3G, but it also has a section for older BlackBerrys (forums.crackberry.com/f29/), which is helpful because not everyone has the money or desire to switch models every year. You can also search by carrier.

    The obvious lesson to learn from this story: that newbie who's asking the easy question may be somebody who's in a position of influence that the rest of us will never attain. We don't know who we may be helping. As much as is in our power, we ought to try to send everybody away happy. We don't know where we may see them again.

    110% agreed. You just never know. It's nice to see our members stepping up and helping a true newbie out. But we shouldn't be suprised, thats what makes CB what it is.

    Bravo CB and the nation of prowlers. Its called "paying forward" This concept is not only what makes CB wonderful, but if practiced by everybody, would make the world a better place. The thing is, words have no gender, race, religious denomination or political affiliation. If someone needs help, weigh in if you can. If you need help, ask.
    Doesn't matter who asks, that's the beauty of anonymity. Could be Obama trying to figure out how to d/l 4.5.0.110 for his curve or John McCain trying to figure out how to wipe the used BB's he is selling out of the trunk of his car.
    How does it go? "Do unto others"
    Peace-Out
    Happy Holidays CB Nation!!!

    Let me say something on behalf of the lowly help file. It has at least three significant advantages over the CB forums.
    1) It's always available. It's as close as your device, and never goes down, even if you lose connectivity.
    2) It's never wrong. As good as CB is, you can get some misinformed, misguided, and just plain wrong answers here. And not just from newbies, either. The Help File can't cover all situations, of course, but if you find the answer there, you know it's right.
    3) It will never flame you, no matter how many times you ask it the same question. Folks who've just been torched for asking a simple question will appreciate that.

    Using the Help file has its place, just like the Search function. When you're stuck, use all the resources available to you.
