Default 2 Simple questions - Headset and ringtones

Please Login to Remove!

So I just got my Pearl yesterday to replace my 8700c which I dropped and half the keys on the left side of the keyboard got stuck down! I am loving the Pearl so far, still getting used to the SureType but apart from that it is amazingly slim and light compared to the 8700. On to the two important questions though:

1) i need a Bluetooth headset for when I'm in the car but have no had much luck with them in the past. Which one do you use and would you recommend it?

2) What ringtone do you all have on your Pearl?

PS. a 3rd question - is there a Sodoku game available for free for it?

First, if you don't want the SureType, hold down the * key until you see ABC in the upper right corner. Now it will work like a regular QWERTY keyboard. Now for the questions:

1) I have the Cardo Scala-500. newegg.com $35. Works great!!!

2) Right now I have the Trance ringer that comes with it. I haven't downloaded a song yet.

3) Not sure about the Sodoku game. Check handango.com They may have a free trial for it.

Oh, I got this one! Go to BlackBerry HELP! on your blackberry browser. That's where the free stuff is, and there's Suduko on there. They also have ringtones as well as other fare.

Disclaimer: If you put Sudoku on your BlackBerry, you will never get any work done! (I know from experience)

Oh, and I use the motorolla hs850, not extremely happy with it, though. It soesn't fit that well and the volume is quiet. Also, it's supposed to 'beep' when the battery is low, but instead it just disconnects you. Maybe not worth the $50 I paid for it, and definitely not worth the $80-100 they charge you in the stores.

Use your BlackBerry Pearl (8100) to browse to mobile.blackberry.com. There are free games, free ringtones, free wallpapers, and free themes there. Use the 'Downloads' link on the home page.

1. I have two Plantronics headsets, a Voyager 510 and a Discovery 655. I use the Voyager more, due to the longer battery life. Very happy with both of them and no complaints from people I'm talking to.

2. I'm using an MP3 from the Diablo 2 game's audio CD. It's just a mellow tune that isn't jarring or annoying and is certainly unique, so I'm not one of the 10 people reaching for their phone on a train every time someone's rings.

3. As mentioned, there's a not-too-bad free one on the mobile site.

is there a way to download ringtones, themes, and games from mobile.blackberry.com if you don't have a data plan?
