1. I would like a program like Microsoft Project to follow my projects on my BB.
2. I would also like something like Microsoft Visio. It is annoying to have all these in the PC and not be able to have them with me.
3. Ability to add more phone fields. What if someone has three mobile numbers?
4. Ability to edit contacts from the call log. Why do I have to enter the contacts?

That's all !!!

Annoying.. but it is a smartphone, not a laptop. Three years ago you did have MS Word and PowerPoint on the BlackBerry. Give it time!


3. Ability to add more phone fields. What if someone has three mobile numbers?
Use the Userfields at the bottom of the edit screen. They will also sync to Outlook IF you set up the sync operation to map the fields to Outlook.

4. Ability to edit contacts from the call log. Why do I have to enter the contacts?
You do have that ability. In the Call Log > Select the call > Menu > View Contact > Menu > Edit. Bam.

That's all !!!

I think he meant "add new" contacts from the call log. That annoys me as well.

Aerize has a great program called "Optimizer" that does just this:

Default date countdown

i would love to have a countdown type app that you could input a date and a time and it would countdown to that date/time. if it could do more than one countdown at a time it would be even better. there have been so many times i wanted to know exactly how long til something happens.
Maybe if im not asking to much, the ability to change the format for it like instead of showing 48 hours and 16 minutes show 2 days 0 hours and 16 minutes.

Just set your options -> date-> time to pull from the cell towers. I believe that auto updates once set. (you may have to force a refresh the first time you make that change).

You can get an app to do it by GPS, although I can't think of the name off the top of my head.

Here's one that does it via cell tower, however:

If you can get a checkbook app to sync with Quicken, I would keep the BB and sell the HTC I just picked up. I mean direct sync, not one where I got to import, export, and twirl around in circles. Ascendo Money is suppose to work with Quicken, but it really not what I am looking for. It's desktop will sync (ie. export/import not direct sync) with Quicken, then the BB can sync with it. I really don't want 2 checkbooks on my desktop. Of course this may not be possible, and I will sell my Curve 8330 in a couple weeks and stick with Pocket Quicken and the HTC Mogul.

I would like there to be optional SMS threading possibilities, ie conversations in speech bubbles like iPhone or to run like BB messenger which I prefer over SMS!

Auto time change as well
