    Hi everyone! I ordered my 8310 Curve yesterday and wondered what you all would say are the top three (or more) things I should do while waiting for it to arrive? I'm hoping to get a head start and I knew you all would know best where to start!

    Thanks so much in advance!

    Excellent suggestions heartmeoutx. I was going to say:

    1) Track package
    2) Track package (pace up and down if no delivery updates)
    3) Track package again..

    lol

    Cnew: As I'm in Houston and recovering from Ike, I think it would be more like
    1) Rake up tree parts, leaves, Track package
    2) Help neighbors rake up tree parts, leaves, Track package (pace up and down if no delivery updates)
    3) Reshingle roof, Track package again..

    Us waiting for the Bold on AT&T are experts at this subject by now, let's see:

    I lurk the AT&T website looking for any sign of it.

    Lurk CB

    Lurk HoFo

    Lurk BGR, Giz, Engadget, etc.

    Find alcohol when I come up with nothing.

    Repeat process.

    Haha kidding

    but I definitely feel your pain.

    (ok maybe i lurk a little!!)

    Oh I know! Try desperately to trade my iPhone 3G for touch + cash so I don't have to take a huge dent in my wallet on the Bold, haha

    1. Read the Blackberry 101 lesson's... I added a link below in my signature.

    2. Lurk and read a lot of threads on your BB model.

    3. Read even more about BB from any place you can find them.

    Well, from a practical standpoint, the number one thing you should be doing while waiting is to update your Outlook Express or Yahoo Contacts list so that you can do an easy transfer of all your contacts via the BB Desktop Manager on your PC. Unless, of course, you're upgrading from one BB device to another.

    I know, Im a kill-joy.

    But I do like the CB 101 review








    Okay, okay! And the alcohol consumption! Makes time fly by.

    Welcome to the family.

    * Decide what you want to use the device for and research/purchase/download apps you'd like. (AIM, Gmaps, Viigo)

    * Ensure you buy all the accessories you need/want (holster, case or gel)

    * Read my "Got Questions?" links.
