Smile New Curve owner, any necessities?

Please Login to Remove!

So my new Verizon 8330 is en route, should have it tomorrow afternoon. Are there any accessories that do not come with the phone that I absolutely need? Also, any tips or suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance.

Read the User guide that comes with it. Read our FAQ. Use the SEARCH function. Play with the device and get to know what it can and cannot do before you try to fix it.

And make sure that you have a BB data plan!

A big microSD card, lots of music, a good set of ear buds and a car stereo adapter.

1) protect the screen from scratches with something like this.
2) save wear and tear on your USB port (a proven weak point on the blackberry's) by getting one (or 2) of these to charge your BB.

A nice OEM "holster" for it is great. Keeps the pocket fuzz out of it also better for the track ball. Check e-bay for these.
Get the one that has the magnet in it ,,it is well worth the 6 or 8 bucks you spend.
verizon wants 15.00 buck or more for theirs. TOO MUCH.
