Default Just Starting Out

Hi everyone. I just got a Blackberry Pearl and I was wondering if there is anything I should know or do to this phone to make it better. I mainly use it for text messaging and phone calls and occasionally listening to music or browsing the internet. I have a 2 gb memory card coming in the mail. Are there any programs/applications i should download to make it my pearl better? Are there any tricks to make it an even better phone? Thanks.

For now, my advice is see the sticky by John Clark on freeing up memory. I think it is at the top of the General forum. (ADDED: Here's the link: And browse
