Default Finally bought a blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

So, after deliberation, I got an 8130 tonight. I now need to learn how to enter into the smart phone world, as this was my first one. I got the data plan as well, so I can utilize all the features.

Should I get the pocketmac v4.0.20b download? Or is there something else I should be going for?

Any suggestions on apps for a 20 year old college student?

Welcome to the Forums!

Congrats on the new BB, too. Will you be syncing to a Mac or PC?

If a PC, you will want Desktop Manager, version 4.2, SP2, or v. 4.3.

For apps--check any one of the other threads for killer, must-have hot apps. Look in our Aftermarket Software section here.

It's about time!

Welcome to the BB fold.

Check out the 8100 series forum, that's where you'll find stuff specific to your Pearl.

Some basics you'll want on your Pearl (IMHO):

- Windows Live Search (OTA link: Untitled Page)
- Google Maps (OTA Link: http://www.google.com/gmm/apps/v2.0....=42&ver=v2.0.1)
- Soft Reset - allows you to restart your Pearl w/out pulling the battery out. (OTA link: http://www.geekandproud.net/blackber.../softreset.jad)

Enjoy.
