Default Newbie with new Pearl on the way and a few ?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello All,

My new Pearl (tmobile) is supposed to be here tomorrow. I have a Blackberry 7230 I quit using years ago. I have been using a Samsung T-809.

I have used Palms for years so I am familiar with the way the Desktop software work. I have already installed it on this machine. I have a 2gig Micro sd card I use in the t-809 so I'm set there. I put music and video on the t-809 and Palm TX so I feel I can pick up the process for the Pearl. I have looked over the startup guide and manual and viewed Blackberry 101 on the Blackberry site several times. Once I slap in the SIM Card and Micro SD Card and run through the setup wizard I think (hope) I'm ready to go full bore more or less.

What I need to know is, do I need the Tmo data plan to browse the web? And, do I need to install a browser like Opera Mini or is there a browser on the Pearl?

Also, will the Pearl access POP email accounts? Can I access my Tmo email on the pearl?

That's it for now. At least until I get the Pearl in my hands and start playing around.

Thanks,
johnling

The blackberry can access any kind of email you want. If you can get it in outlook, you can get it on your berry. And do you mean your. @tmo.net or whatever? I'm not quite sure about that. As for the data side, to browse the web, you will need a data plan. When you call CS, theyl send service books to your phone and your browser and a bunch of other stuff will show up. You set up your email and stuff after you get the books. Like I said, you get a browser when you subscribe to a data plan, but opera mini is amazing. You should download it anyways. I always use mine. =)
