Yes, i finally switched to the "dark side" as my buddies call it, from the windows devices. Yes, $30 for BB vs $45 for windows is awesome!!
Is there a way to get a folder with JUST text (sms) messages instead a "messages" folder with EVERY message?
What are some good free apps/games and where do you get them from?
When I first got my Pearl, the SureType drove me nuts. I switched over to MultiTap and stopped using SureType. When I upgraded my OS, it changed it back to default to SureType rather than MultiTap. I left it on and after about maybe 10-15 minutes of using SureType on emails and text messages, I'm hooked. With the predictive text, I can type faster than on a true QWERTY handset. Of course there are still words that will confuse the SureType, but the more I am using it, the better it is getting.
