thank you for the welcome!
I registered for a blackberry orange email address but was not planning on actively using it.
My gmail account is virtually spam free it is btinternet which is the problem.
I can cope though so far!!
I will stick with the BB
I am a little confused about the maps. this is GPS but it isnt satnav is it?
Is there some add-on that will have the handset function as a satnav?
