Ok, let me start with a couple questions:

What did you buy a BB for? To surf, email, productivity?

Let me know what you're looking for out of your BB and I might be able to give you some info to get the most out of it.

ill second this question. we need to know what services you signed up for. did you get the unlimited data plan?

and dont mind the ones who post telling you that your an idiot for posting. those guys just get anxious because their favorite porn site hadnt updated today. please ask any question you want, if they are common questions we will refer you to the search engine, but in any case you shouldnt feel ashamed to post any type of question. this is a help forum after all.
