    It's used, so I'm wondering, when it gets here should I do some kind of reset on it? How do I do that?

    I'd like to get it back to the factory default setup if possible.

    Should I update it's software?

    It's an 8800, and I'm on AT&T.

    thanks!

    You can wipe the device of all the previous user's data by going to Options >Security Options >General Settings >menu key "Wipe Handheld."

    Beyond that, lets wait until you get the device to see if it needs a software update.

    It's here!

    I've wiped everything, and made a call to test it. AT&T doesn't want to let me change my account service atm.. but that's another issue.

    I was trying to add a blackberry data plan to my account, but I'm on a government account and it has a password I have to give the ATT rep before they will help me. I got the password and they let me add the data plan just now.

    well, I think I have my email setup. I logged into BIS and setup an account, added my gmail account and a filter for sent items.

    test message just arrived!

    I also installed Opera Mini and got that working.

    This thing is sweet!

    now for some google maps and BBweather. *rubs hands together gleefully*

    Don't know if anyone has tried this but WXSYS (do a google search) has a free app for BB that does weather. They also have a free one for marine weather as well. If anybody tries them out, let me know if they are any good.

    Welcome BigB

    How are you finding the 8800? I love mine but have been toying with the idea of getting a curve (I've only had a BB for a month & already I'm thinking of getting another one. . .this thing IS addictive!!)
