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.
