Hey everyone,

So this is my first morning with my new 8330 frim vzw and I got a couple of emails. Only problem is that I can't view them in the way the come in my comps inbox. I know there are HTML readers out there, can anyone reccommend any good ones?

Thanks!

Look at Empower and BB Smart in the After Market Section.

Both have trials and you should try both

I have used Empower and recently upgraded to Empower Pro for a cheap price. I have noticed though that sometimes when I try to close out a email that I have open, it won't close out. I have to pull the battery out to get it back to the home screen.

best is a very personal choice. You need to decide what you like and want. There are two very distinct and different points of view here

That's odd. I haven't had that problem but I've used it on an 8800 and now the 8310, FWIW.

When I got my new Curve, I was going to download Empower (used it on my 8830), but they dont support the 4.3 OS.
Other than that, I liked Empower.

Got my curve. Got empower pro. Got no problems with it. 4.3 is actually a supported OS they just haven't updated that product page yet.

If I am not mistaken, the latest BIS upgrade will allow us to read html e-mail so this would be a non-issue.
