Question Quick Questions Please - Tell me about your BB

Please Login to Remove!

Yes I know....I'm a noob....I apologize but I just picked up my BlackBerry Pearl (Christmas Gift) and from what I see those friends of mine who have the T-Mobile version have quite a few more features and have downloaded quite a few programs.....I am here to ask where can I get some "nifty" programs for my Pearl? Aol Instant Messenger being one of them....

(random edit: I have the Cingular BlackBerry Pearl)


Please advise on where to download these programs (hopefully free programs)
and Please advise what 3rd party programs you have on your phone and where you got them....


Thanks!

the messengers such as BB versions of AIM and Yahoo do not work on Cingular network....but Ramble is the best substitute for AIM...haven't found a Yahoo substitute yet
