Default 8700 numb^ key

Because Alt+Cap is caps lock. Num and Cap are there to serve as reminders for the locks. On their own each key is just a Shift key. The Alt key is always used to enter the alternate symbols on the keys.

Best BB stock program by far is www.quotestream.com - Real time for $29.95 per mo.

How about 19.95 per year for FreeNews? It's not realtime, but every forty minutes is worth 340 dollars to me. Specifically, it's a mobile rss reader, but it works fast cause it's not connection reliant.

Default For single quotes try using Berry 411

15 min delay but it gives you day graph, high, low vol.

I like it alot. In fact, I will have to post a screen shot some time.

True. I tried PocketDay and replaced it with FreeNews as I only need stocks, weather and RSS news. I actually love the way it describes weather in text. It's very speedy. Sabesh.

Default Free News

I have been reviewing. I am supposed to speak with them next week. Please PM with your thoughts if you want me to relay them. I have some issues with it like I don't get page 2 of a NYT article.

Default Open 411

To find the plugins go to about 411 and explore. The plugin for quotes is stocks but there are many more you should know about there too. If you go to Edit Plugins and just put in stocks you will have it.
