    Hey everyone, I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Shawn and I'm not an addict, yet. I decided to look into getting a BlackBerry, specifically the Bold, once it gets released. I figured this would be the perfect place to familiarize myself with users and the overall BB experience.

    I was never a big fan of BB's, honestly. However, I played with a Curve tonight and I was incredibly impressed. I also tried an 8820, but I wasn't as impressed especially with the keyboard. Despite the higher data plan charges (I'm used to $15 for MediaNet), I think I'll be happy with a 9000. I've used Nokia smartphones, a Treo 750, and right now an iPhone. It's definitely time for a change.

    On a personal level I'm a graphic designer doing both logo design and websites, and I'm also an intern working in an IT department.

    So that's the story - it seems like a nice place here so I'm looking forward to getting involved.

    What's up D0uble... We've talked before on HoFo... You used to have a 6682 as well right? I remember talking to you about it, if you're the same one.

    Yep, I had the 6682... I still use it every once in awhile, it's just not very powerful. I thought I recognized your username on here.

    Was a Palmer for years, made the switch about a month ago and have never looked back. Well, that's not true I miss threaded messages and sortable contacts by category but that's it. I don't miss the constant hard and soft resets just to get the phone to work.

    Welcome to the addiction and the community.

    Could someone explain to me how the calendar app works? Specifically, on WM6 and on S60, the day's events and any pending to-do's were displayed on the standby screen. Does the BB OS provide this type of notification or just pop-ups at the specified reminder time?

    You can use the Today theme for wm type feel.

    When you set a new Appointment, towards the bottom before, the first line break, there is a "reminder"

    Minutes.. 0, 5, 10, 15 30, 45 (0 reminds you at the start time of the event)
    Hour(s).. 1-12
    Day(s).. 1-6
    Week.. 1
