Ok, here's a scenario. You're at the hotel and you want to find the nearest pizza hut or so forth. You can type in the search and input the hotel's address and berry411 can find the closest one for you. There are a lot of uses, that example just scratches the surface.

I have it but haven't really used it much, but my understanding is that it's a Yellow Pages thing mainly. Does it have any other uses besides searching for addresses?

Berry411 saved me from starvation one night, no kidding! My wife and I were in a downtown New Orleans hotel late one night after going to a concert (Journey/Def Leppard. Yes, I remember the 80's fondly).

Anyway, even though many hotels are open post-Katrina, most of the restaurants downtown either keep limited hours or aren't open at all. We didn't have time to eat dinner before the concert so by the time we got back to the hotel, we were quite hungry. I whipped out my BB, punched the hotel address in to Berry411 and called up a listing of restaurants.

The brilliance of Berry411 is that locations are listed from nearest to farthest, so I simply started calling the ones within walking distance until I found one that was open. None of the ones that I called delivered at that hour, unfortunately.

Hunger drove me to walk to get food, but I wouldn't generally recommend it. New Orleans isn't quite as safe for a lone pedestrian as it once was (not that it was ever all that safe, of course).

I use the dictionary a lot but the yellow pages come in handy when you're out and about and need the closest place for something complete with map and blow by blow directions. I've use the white pages also on occassion.

I don't travel muh but the local information seems great for travelers.

Sure you can go to Yahoo yellow pages, but you have to open your browser, find the bookmark, or type it in directly, etc., type in the search you are looking for, etc.

With Berry 411, you simply type in something like "pizza" (because you have already set your addresses to where you are located home and office or other); or if you are out of town something like "Pizza, Atlanta" or "Pizza (insert zipcode)". Much simpler than clicking all through Yahoo, etc., to find something.

For example, I recently drove from Birmingham to near Boston taking my son off to his freshman year of college. All along the route he or I were using Berry411 for "Coffee, Lexington" or 'Hotel, Cherry Hill, NJ" using either the yellow pages or primarily the Google search option. When I found one, I would hit MAP and it would show me exactly where it was located at which interstate exit, etc., or even better, I could copy and paste the address into Google Maps.

I also use it often tracking flights when my son flies home for breaks... I sat in a meeting one night with a friend watching his flight progress over Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and into Alabama, at which time I knew I needed to head for the airport because he was about to land 30 minutes late. Much better than getting there to circle and/and sitting in the cell phone waiting lot.

By the way, 3.83 (just released) restores the ability to clear your search history which was missing in previous 3.8x releases.

I just downloaded Berry 411 and was playing with it a bit. I have a quick question. Whenever I perform a search, I see the T-Mobile screen appear as it processes. This isn't accessing T-Zones or some such thing is it? I have the unlimited data plan and I'm thinking Berry 411 is just using the data connection. I just want to be sure It's not something I may get unexpectedly charged for since it seems like quite the addictive program.

Default Deleting search history...

I've been using Berry 411 for some time and love it! However after recently upgrading to the latest version I can no get rid of my past search info. The previous versions had a "pull down" that would take you to the list of all the previous searches you did and from there you were able to zap them all and have a nice clean start page.
Any help with how to get rid of the past searches with this new version?! Thanks!
