ok i got a pearl from tmobile with the latest software on it

it usually runs rfine but it freeses up alot (by freeses i mean the little hour glass goes on and off consistly not allowing me to do anything. this happens alot when i am browsing the web alot. is there any way to stop this or manage what is running in the background. (al that i am running when i select switch applications is web browser, My Faves (this only shows sometimes, but they are always running), messages, phone, and home screen). is there something that runs in the b/g that eats the ram? or is there anything i can do to clear everything from the ram?

is there any FREE program that allows me to make, read, and edit MSO files (i.e. PP, Word, excel)? ive seen somethin on google called documents to go but its not free

is the IM+ better than the default oz im program that comes with the phone?

also, some phones, when you connect via bluetooth, you can use a file browser type thing to co through files is there any thnig that i can use like this on the pearl?

thanx guys for all your help.. this is my first blackberry and im used to my sidekicks so everything is WAY different than im used to

? MSO files-- do you mean Microsoft Office? Yes, then look at eOffice, (not free) by Dynoplex, if you need editing of those files. If you only need viewing ability, check out BeamBerry and Repligo.

For your hourglass probs, pull the battery and reboot the BB at least once a week. Also, get some memory on the phone freed up, per:
How do I free up memory on my device? - BlackBerryFAQ
Why is my 8100 Pearl losing its call logs or message logs? - BlackBerryFAQ

Good luck.
