    SoCal,
    Welcome aboard!
    Glad you like our little thread here. Bob's the official WalMart greeter. He'll be here shortly I would assume unless his family has whisked him away somewhere for Father's Day...Which reminds me...

    HAPPY FATHER"S DAY to all the DADS out there!!!

    Me? You'll find I shoot from the hip. Sometimes it gets me in trouble. Lol, then I duck and cover. Lmao.

    Anyway, to find us on your berry...
    After you get your Bold, you need to do exactly what I told Brooke to do.
    Use the browser.

    Go to crackberry.com on your bb browser.

    when you get to that page on your phone, you will see (across the top) choices and one of them is DOWNLOADS. click on it.

    Then one of the choices is CB Launcher. Click on that.

    WHen the page changes you will see a little BLUE box that says FREE. Click on the FREE box.

    It will take you to a page that allows you to download the launcher.

    When you are done, there will be a CB launcher (shortcut) in your downloads folder on your Bold.

    You can then move it to your home screen.

    Now whenever you click the launcher, you will be brought to the forums and you can browse this thread.

    Come back to this post when you get your phone and try it, ok?
    And if you have trouble, post back and someone will be right with you. We monitor this thread pretty closely. Someone is usually here to help out.

    Get ready to have lots of fun with us!!!
    So I get promoted to Wal-Mart Greeter? Because I'm retired? Shish.

    We are getting new folks to our little corner of the world here so fast that I can't keep up with them, this is great!

    So, welcome to hatlee & socalpilot and any others that I might have missed.

    Say JayDee, what happened to the purple skin you had on your baby Bold right after you got it? That would at least give some protection, and with the screen protector I would think you should be reasonably protected until you find the colorful case of your dreams...

    Bob, Thank goodness you have a sane place to come to post where you are among friends. These people who expect these phones to be perfect are being a little unreasonable, I agree. I have posted in many forums, too.

    I still haven't conquered my case caper, so I am still on the hunt.

    Also, everyone please welcome p.c. or plkcable as he posts here...he is a friend of mine and a long time Tour user and poster in the Tour and Storm forums who will be checking in with us here since he has recently acquired a Bold. Welcome p.c.!!!!

    Welcome, plkcable glad you joined ourr BOLD family

    Hey Jaydee what about this one to protect your phone ? Buy the Seidio Innocase Snap - Amethyst CSR5BB9630-PR-BL - Blackberry Accessories
    Hey Wizard, this might be the one!
    With the soft silicone skin I had from before, the one I have in the pictures I uploaded, and this hard case, I should be ok. I'm just worried about dropping the phone on the tiled or concrete floors of a school, know what I mean?

    Maybe I will order this and give it a try and see what it feels like. Not very expensive anyway so why not?

    K-Roc,
    Wonder wassup with CaputureIt? You installed it properly? You see it as an icon on your homescreen? Ok that icon does nothing. It's not supposed to do anything. Maybe that's the problem.

    CaptureIt integrates itself into your bb menu button so when you press the menu button, CaptureIt should be at the top.

    Try it K-Roc and report back to us here, ok? I think it does it that way so you can be on any screen in your berry and SNAP a pic of it and CaptureIt jumps outta the way.
    I tried it by using the menu button and all, but all I get is a pic that is all white *pulling hair out* . Don't know what I'm doing wrong. Maybe I'll delete it and reinstall it.

    Cbreze, thanks for that! As an old guy, I don' know a lot of the common acronyms of today. Back in my career days as a computer programer type I lived by acronyms, but they were for the most part related to our company environment.
