    Completely new! My bb8310 just arrived like 45 mins ago. I can not wait to play with it. So, how long should I charge it before I begin tinkering with it? I would also love to hear of recommendations on apps. I'm basically a "soccer Mom" who went back to college after all the kids started school. I graduate this May and begin my career in medical lab science (yeaaaa Me!) The capabilities I'd like to have are an email addy, web browsing, driving directions would be nice. I'm not a big texter, but I think it's 'cause I sucked at it on my razr. I may be inclined to text more with my curve. My daughter laughs at me because she'll text me and it takes me forever to reply! Yep, I'm technically challenged so get ready for questions that likely have very simple, obvious answers. Hubby has a BB for work, don't know which model, but I'm too impatient to wait for him to help me! TIA and I look forward to becoming a crackhead

    Forgot to mention that I'm frugal too! Looking to not spend a fortune but get a lot of bang for the buck!

    Needs to charge for at lease 6 hours the first time. BTW you can play with it while it is charging! Have fun! When your thumbs are stiff when you are 50+ blame it on your BB addiction.

    welcome to the forums.

    depending on what you want to be able to do with your curve you can search the forums for just about any application there is for the blackberry.

    you probably will text much more easily on the curve than the razr....the keyboard is a LOT more friendly...


    keep an eye on your memory...
    options>status=file free is your available memory

    GET A MEMORY CARD !!!!!!!!

    have questions? aske the friendly folks on crackberry.

    enjoy the new toy.

    Welcome to CB. You'll love it here.

    Google and get Google maps for directions. If you have GMail, you can also download it there. There are a couple of very good programs (free.99) there.

    We have similar names. Lol

    LOL No I am not a Scorpio. I am a Pisces. How are your clinicals going? I hated mine. Just because I didn't get paid and I had to get up so darn early! I love working in the lab though. Of course I have only been doing it for a year now, but I still like it. Thankfully I got snowed in the weekend I got my Curve so I was able to play all weekend.

    Google maps is a nice navigation app. I use beyond 411 to find restaurant info, also for hotels etc. You'll be a vet in no time with the help you find here.

    Thanks everyone! Chariot, I like clinicals. It is hard to do 36 hrs a week of 'em without pay!! I don't mind going in early. I leave home at 5:30am, but the day goes pretty fast and I'm heading home before I know it. I just finished my microbiology rotation. I've got chemisty and hematology left. Almost done!!

    Congratulations Cable3 on the boy!! I lucked out and my 3rd is a boy. He's 5 yrs old now. Other 2 are girls.....ages 14 and 8.
