    I've already posted some questions, but never introduced myself.... I just got it yesterday, and I'm still kinda in awe over the whole thing, I kinda just sit and stare at it (I know pretty lame) So does anyone have any cool suggestions as to what I can do with my new toy??

    Thanks

    p.s. sorry about the delay in the introduction :-)

    Hey! i am new as well, about 3 days old proud owner of pearl 8130 in the new pink color . The first things that i have done are:

    1) go into the options and just play aroun with every feature and see what everything means (or try to figure it out)
    2) delete things that you dont need or wont use (for example i got rid of BB maps because i now have google maps)
    3)move the shortcuts that you will use the most to your home screen
    4) add your emails
    5) synch with your contacts and calendar
    6) added new profiles as to how and when i want my BB to be silent vs ringing
    7) set up shortcuts to the left and right botton on the outside of the phone (my left is an alarm clock while the right is calendar)
    8) tons more to learn....

    hope this helps

    alsihka11,

    I've done the synching up with the calender and numbers, done the profiles, and tried to fiddle around with it, but just got real confused.....how do you get google maps and how do you make the shortcuts on the side??

    Welcome to CB!
    You can personalize it with themes.
    Set up shortcuts on your home screen
    Get your crackberry email address
    Download weather/stock quote/news/entertainment apps all for free
    If you're an IM fan DL an app for using it for IM'ing, plus go to the social forums here and find people to add to your contacts and IM with about how neat your BB is.
    Search the net for applications that relate to your work and hobbies, there's a bunch of them out there.
    Learn to pull your battery and install a memory card.
    Just looking at it for hours works too.

    Hello and welcome!

    Download some wallpaper to use for your main/home screen to go along with the themes that came preinstalled or that you want to install to your BB.

    Get a case or a pouch. 85% of "Drops" happen in the first week! (at least it does with me)
