    Greetings CrackBerry fans! This is the second day of my lifestyle change. Got my New Blackberry Curve 8330 yesterday after 10 years with Palm. Looking forward to getting settled in after tons of set up, and the "Learning Curve" (I am sure that's probably the most reaped pun out there). I guess I'll leave my tech questions to other threads.

    Welcome to CB. I had Nextel, I had a Palm, and even Windows mobile, this is by far the most addicting of them all.

    Did Nextel have PDA phones?

    How long did you use phones with the Palm OS? It seems that most people I've talked to that used a Palm Phone but like the BB better, never actually used the palm phone for very long.

    First off, Thank You all for warm welcome.

    How many and how long did you use a cell phone running Palm OS?

    What is it you love about the BB most, other than the corporate email they were designed for?

    I think it's prettier, but I don't have much use for colors or Icons, I want to see text and numbers now. That reminds me, how do I get text to list under each icon on the 8330 so that I can see what each of those goofy little pictures are supposed to be for? Is there a 3rd party program that will allow me to list them that way, with text lables? There are lots of things I like about the BB but so far the Palm still seems better for getting to what I need fast.

    For popularity and romance, BB wins, it's what the corporate power players where givin by their companies, bringing an image of success and power and thus desirablity for both men and women. People that never had a pda phone before started wanting a BlackBerry for the image even thought they had no clue what a PDA was, let alone ever used one. Where as the Palm, having been more of a real hand held computer, brought up images of computer geeks. But as a PDA or Hand Held Computer the Palm is still capable of far more, faster and easier. But then one model of the Subaru Impreza can out-excelerate and out-courner a corvette. But for Image the Vette wins, even if it's not as capable.

    I'm sure I will learn to like it more than I already do but so far it's very frustrating having to scroll and push so many buttons and go through so many menus/pages for something that only took one or two button pushes with the Palm.

    I should move these Questions and Comments to other Forums/Threads. Any suggestion on which?
