Default Some NooB questions

Please Login to Remove!

I am considering getting a Blackberry Pearl on TMobile.

I have a few questions that I could not find answers to using the search button, if I missed them or somehow used the wrong search terms/words I apologize....

Can the Pearl access Paypal or similiar sites by itself or when used as a modem? I own a small business and don't do a lot of credit card transactions, but when I do, they can be substantial. I am a massage therapist who is tired of paying for a credit card slider that barely pays for itself over the course of a year.

You can directly download things like podcasts directly to the phone over the air, correct? Got to get my Scott Sigler on!

Can you enter appointments into the scheduler while on an actual call?

Thank You

You can access your paypal when it ask you to go pay with paypal... if that's what you mean, as for downloading podcast over the air, no can do, viewing video files require you to format them in a special way that the Pearl would play it also.

It shouldn't be a problem accessing paypal. Another really great option would be propay. I use them and they're wonderful. ProPay: Accept Credit Cards - Simple, Safe, & Affordable

Thanks for the replies.

I will check out Propay.

So I could not download podcast mp3's to a computer, even when using the Pearl as a modem, then put them back on the phone to listen to later?
