Ok, as you guys know, I am very new to this BB stuff. I don't even know how to get my BB Chat going, how to get new ringers or how to get music on my BB without connecting it to my MAC, which doesn't seem to work. Would you guys give me your TOP TEN must haves for your BB, as if you just bought a new BB Pearl? Top 10 sites, downloads or programs. Thanks!

google maps, colorpearl, sign up in the bb owners lounge to get free games, i think mobile.blackberry.com still have some games too. get a nice theme and a memory card if you don't have one already, mobile17.com (and a bunch of other sites) to make your own ringtones. get other people's PINs to start chatting in bb messenger and get a 3rd party app like jivetalk or im+ if you want to talk to people on aim.

I know this is a lot of questions but PLEASE, if you can also help me with how to get the BBchat going?

you can get themes here in the media section or themes4bb.com or even a google search

for the bb chat you have to have other peoples PINs first, put them in your address book, and then you have to go to add a contact in bb messenger and request for them to be one of your contacts

do you mean the desktop manager? having a mac shouldn't stop you from being able to go online on your bb and you shouldn't have to sync anything to do it

you need "missing sync" or "pocket mac" in order to sync with the MAC.

check out the Mac users section

Having a MAC should not prevent you from getting on the internet with your BB Browser.

Do you have a Browser icon on your BB? If so, what happens when you click on it?
