Default Just got a data plan!! :)

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone, I just got a data plan for my Curve and was wondering what are all the cool things I can browse, download, etc... on the blackberry now that I can use the web...

1. How do I setup my gmail account with blackberry?

2. I'm looking at using MSN windows messenger, but when I went to www.blackberry.com/livemessenger on my phone and tried to download it says "Sorry, your device does not meet the system requirements that are needed to support windows live messenger"... how do I get msn messenger working on the phone?

3. Any other cool things I can do now?

4. With the browser, how do you browse multiple pages at a time, like the tabs feature of Mozilla Firefox Browser?

5. Why with some websites on the blackberry, they look all distorted and stuff?

I really appreciate any and all help..

Thanks in advance.

1. Use the setup internet email icon on your homescreen or log into the BIS site for your carrier. Where can I log into my BIS account? - BlackBerryFAQ

2. There are lots of threads out there about that (it's not my thing as I use JiveTalk.)

3. You can surf the net, send/receive email, load 3rd party apps, use BBMessenger, etc.

4. You can't.

5. That is normal. You might try Opera Mini

Cool thanks a lot...

About the email, I set it up, but when I send an email... for some reason I get the the same email I just sent being sent back to me.. How do I fix this?

Also how is JiveTalk???

Thanks

JiveTalk works great, one of THE most recommended applications for the Blackberry.

Yep. It's a good app. I recommend the $29 license so when you get a new Berry you can transfer the app from the old to the new...or if you have to exchange your BB on warranty, etc.

Alright, thanks good idea I probably will buy it when the trial is up... I can't believe how great it works.

I was just wondering about the battery life and this program... if I leave it signed in all the time when my phone is on will it kill the battery or ?

Battery life takes a little bit of a hit, not bad though.
