I should get my FIRST BB ever tomorrow, the 8310 Titanium, and it's being shipped so I won't be at the AT&T office for help. What do you suggest I so to learn how to use, just read the stuff that comes with it or take it somewhere. From what i've read on here they seem VERY complicated.

Thanks

They may seem complicated at first, but you just have to get used to the device. What will you primarily be using it to do?

You can always start by going to BlackBerryFAQ.com to get some information on the basics and other tips.

They are fairly simple.

When you get yours, place the battery in it to charge until it's at 100%. Maybe 3-4 hours.
During that time, read throught the FAQs here. You will see things that mean NOTHING to you yet, but in the next week as you have a question, you will think "Ah, I know where to find that information."

Make sure you have your account with a BlackBerry Data Plan.

Come back after charged, and add your email:
How to add / delete email addresses - BlackBerryFAQ
(you will likely need to signup your BIS account first, creating a username and password. You might want to create a @att.blackberry.net address at the same time, it will ask).

That is all you HAVE to do at first. Start using and get used to it.

You will want to add some additional applications later, so get your PC ready for the BB by downloading and installing the Desktop Manager (I would first recommend downloading version 4.2, service pack 2).
BlackBerry Desktop Manager Downloads - BlackBerryFAQ

Learn to Backup your BB to your PC. Do you use Outlook on your PC? Learn to sync the BB to your PC via Desktop Manager.

There will be more, check back as you need. Enjoy.
