    Hello all!
    Picking up my first ever BB tomorrow (8310 Pearl/Verizon) and am very excited. Looking forward to experiencing the joys that so far I have only been able to read about on here. I have read the posts about things to do/download once I do get it and was wondering if I will need an HTML viewer (Empower or BBS) on the 8130 Pearl?

    I ask because I tried to take advantage of the one day offer today for the free BBS viewer, but was stymied by not having a number off the device.

    Any other tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Honored to be a part of the club!!

    Depends on if you want it. Some people like full html emails, but with the 4.5 OS coming soon, you may want to save some money because it will be part of the upgrade.

    Welcome doc You'll enjoy your VZW 8130 as well as this forum. If you can live without HTML email for the next ~6 weeks until OS 4.5 is released, you'll have it then.

    Oh, Doc, get OperaMini!

    Operamini is definately on my to do list. Thank you for the advise on the HTML viewer, I was beginning to feel like my bad karma had struck again with my missing out on the freebie.

    Thanks to all who have welcomed me so far! I appreciate the hospitality and advice, and look forward to learning from all of you!

    Wow.....I now have some idea about the addiction. I haven't been able to put this thing down!

    Downloaded Opera mini and have been surfing since.....Nice little browser that works well when on sites that you are familiar with.

    What's the story with Google apps? Does it work well and is it worth it for people who use gmail?
