So you basically just copy and pasted the free software thread at the top of the list. And not even all of them, just 4 of the most basic ones. Good find buddy.

I'd suggest Berry411, LiveSearch and AmazeGPS.
Search harder!

I downloaded Opera Mini on to my 8310, and I am loving it so much over the stock browser, I'd like to know if there is a way to designate it as the standard browser. RIght now, if I click on a link contained say within an email, the default browser still opens up. Is there any way to set Opera Mini as the default?

Default Audible Ring Tone but Vibrate Email Notification?

First time I've combined phone and email into one unit. Not liking the phone features of my 8310 very much but willing to re-learn. A couple of questions:

1) Isn't there any way to have the Phone Ringtone loud and the Email notification just set to vibrate? Doesn't seem to be any way to configure SMS, Email, Voice Mail and RingTone individually. Its particularly annoying to have a loud tone everytime an email is delivered...I'd be happy enough if I could disable that but still have a nice loud ringtone so I can hear it when it rings.

2) How can I arrange my Phone book so that I have a different list for work and a separate list for outside work?

3) Internet Browser - not too impressive at all, is there an alternative browser that might size into the 8310 window a little better?

I'm on BES with my company if that helps at all...

For questions number three, consider using the Opera Mini Browser

For item #1 you could switch your profile to Phone Only. Then everything is silent except for the phone ringer.
