I know this is out there on many diffrent places but I would like to try and put it all together in one place...

So you decided to get a Blackberry. I have had one for some time now and I have found that I does a lotxxx8230; But not enough with out helpxxx8230; so here is my list of programs that may be needed for your blackberry (F) means that it is free, always a good price. Programs noted with * I recommend and use.

__________________________________________
If you go to the Internet Browser and then click on the bookmark "Nextel Wireless Web". There is a section for downloads. In here you will find:
Spell Checker By Dynoplex makers of Eoffice (free - A must have eoffice is on the must have list at the bottom)* (F)
Telenav (subscription -Highly recommended)*
Comet Tracker (corporate GPS tracking software)
METAmessage basic ASP (Subscription Spell check outgoing messages, Set custom message alerts, Print using any fax machine, Get quick info, and much more...)
Trimbleoutdoors (I will discuss this one later)*

Programs I recommend from Handago:
eOffice (excel, Word, Outlook, Spell checker all on your blackberry, a little costly but worth it - A must have)*
IM+ (instant Message with AOL, YAHOO, ICQ, MSN, and Jabber all at the
IM+ same time - A must have)*
WorldMate Pro (world times, currency converter, travel plans, weather. A great software for the traveling Blackberry user)*

there are so many more available at handago.com

One last section

This is a great activity that can take five minutes of all dayxxx8230; you choosexxx8230;

Great list. Many thanks. Just one minor correction ... I think BBReply changes the "reply to" address, not the "sent from" address.
