hey everyone , i just upgraded to a blackberry curve sunet from tmobile. im comming from the sidekick 3 and im in need of some helpfull advice. So im all set with the data plan and ive added 400 sms. My biggest concern here is that i use ims frequently so i was looking around for a im client and found jive talk. is this a one time fee youll be charged or is it monthly? lastly is there a way to customize your theme to make your own? and do tmobile blackberrys carry the blackberry maps feature? i havent gotten my curve yet , hopefully in 3 days but i am excitedd!!

Jivetalk is either a onetime device license, or a onetime personal license (still good if you lose or get a new BB).

Look in our Media Section here for many many themes, and you will find also some theme websites.

Try Google Maps for your BB, it is really a better product, but yes, BBMaps is good too.

Welcome to BBF!

I highly recommend the lifetime license. Even if you have to get a warranty replacement device you'll need to transfer it. The one time license isn't the best deal.

ahh yes i was thinking about that since i might switch to a newer model down the road. do you happen to know the upgrade price? or do I have to pay another $20?

haha, ur in the same predicament as my gf. she came from her HORRIBLY CRAPPY SK3 then i bought her a sunset curve. she loves it haha.

jivetalk is an amazing application. It is a one time fee, i would get the personal license for 29.99. It is 10.00 more, but if you ever want to change devices, your GOLDEN, instead of buying a new single license. just think every time you switch devices via warranty or new phone, you are saving $20
