Default cool uses

Please Login to Remove!

i am a rather young user and i do not use my blackberry for business purposes. i recieved my blackberry because i am a member in a club that needs quick and easy email access. however, everything else, such as phone use, is left up to us. does anyone have any reccommendations for "cool uses". Like: instant messeging, music/book downloads, etc. any info would be great.

I like the IM function's, web browsing functions, the email of course. I over-all like the fact I can always be reached by people in one form or another.

I like a lot of the programs in the Blackberry Killer Software Thread.

To do instant messaging at its very best, you will want to purchase MDS service at an extra cost (http://www.myblackberry.us at about $10 per month) or wait until the Version 4.0 of BWC or BlackberryOS arrives.

The backlit on my BB 7780 makes for a great make shift flash light when I get home late and need to find my way upstairs without waking the whole house by turning lights on!

I use:

email and outlook functions
Webmessenger (3 days and counting)
Webviewer as a web browser
Search 411 (excellent little search utility)
eSafe


I would love a better note program, something like a database, easy synch, searchable, etc...

I love being able to Google a restaurant or something (Dominos Virginia Beach) then it pulls up the name, location and phone number and all i have to do is click on the phone number to dial it.
