    I have had my BlackBerry for a month and all I know really how to do is txt and phone calls. I think this phone may be to advanced for me. Some one told me to come here and look around to see it could help. I figured out how to post and just want to say hello!

    There is no wrong way to use a BB.

    There is something for everybody: BlackBerry Messenger, Multimedia, Apps, etc. In other words, there are different forms of BB Use/Addiction.

    You've found CrackBerry, so you're off to a great start. You are reaching out to the right people.

    Have fun with your BB and keep at it!

    I had one Blackberry or another for about 2 years and never really learned how to use it. I got an 8350i with unlimited everything, found this site, and now I'm an addict! Just keep playing with it, read the boards (especially the newbie stuff and the one specific to your phone) and in no time you too will be an addict! I read the news, play games, check the boards, google talk with friends in Iraq, oh and I use the phone, too! And because of this site, I find more and more stuff to do with it all the time.

    Welcome to crackberry, enjoy the addiction!

    Welcome to CB! The first few weeks I had my Blackberry I was clueless. I found this site one day, and I have been hooked ever since. Check out the Blackberry 101 Lecture Series, and ask us any questions you might have. There is no wrong way to use a berry like someone said, everyone uses it differently!

    Don't give up, I'm also on my first BB (Bold) and am loving it, so easy to use text,email etc, etc. Just stick with it and you'll never know how you managed for so long without one.
    Hang in there.

    Funny I didn't want a BlackBerry because they are so businness like but I got a 8130 pearl limited edition sandstone. Because it was pretty and had pink and looked girly. I want to keep trying I just have to get into it. I have unlimited everything as well and feel as If I am wasting my money. I do want to learn to use it for more than txt and phone calls. Thanks for the kind and supportive words everyone!

    well you can always run a search on here for posts like, 20 something users, 30 something users, single users, bored users. There you can send your pin to other users and meet all kinds of new people on here. Also, do searches for new themes, apps, downloads and see what interests you and you can always find a place to download it from on the good old CrackBerry!!!!! Don't give up!!!
