    First time poster!

    Like the title says...

    I just bought my first BlackBerry!

    I ordered a used 8330 Curve. I'm a former iphone + iphone 3g user, and switched to verizon a few months ago (currently using the EnV2).

    Ok. so! what's next? I've made a short list of software I need to download (with help from these forums)

    but I want to know what are some of the awesome things i should do with my BB first! What can i do, what should i do, what shouldn't i do, anything! anything you guys can tell me :-)

    I intend to use the curve for messaging (a lot), emails, browsing, and calandar/planner. anything else is just gravy really. Thanks in advance!

    Jumping to Verizon was a great decision to make, the Curve is a wonderful phone, does most everything a phone needs to do plus more!

    Thanks for all the welcome! I'm excited, it comes in the mail today!!!!!

    I chose the 8330 because A) the 8900 isn't out for verizon yet (8930?) and B) i wanted a used one so I could get used to Black Berry and not spend as much money, in case it didn't fit with me (gasp!). I have read good things about the 8330 though, so yay! Thanks again, i'm sure i'll be back soon with questions!

    Welcome to your new home at cb!
    First DL CB mobile launch to your BB. Delete apps of what u won't use to free up as much mem as possible. U can alwasys add things back later on. I have the same phone, u will love it! Just read all the threads in the curve 88xx section. You will learn a ton, I did!
