Default first time blackberry user needs HELP!!!! got the 8700g

Please Login to Remove!

got my first blackberry from work and am completely clueless on what to do and how to do it. the manual it comes with is useless. can anyone recommend a good book or website that can help me out. the books in the bookstores don't have info on the 8700g but up to the 7200. would that make a difference.

also, when i try to do some browsing on some websites where i am registered, it doesn't allow me to get to the functions i need. is this common or am i doing something completely wrong.

any suggestions would help

Hey, congrats on joining the bb community....

In the future, try searching this forum for tips, tricks, etc and you'll find tons and tons of threads, but to help here are a couple useful links:

Stinsonddog's Blackberry Tips

enjoy learning

As for the website thing, try changing your blackberry browser emulation to something else like IE. The way to do this is (on an 8700 series): go to your blackberry browser - clickwheel to options - select browser configuration - scroll down to emulation mode and change it to Microsoft IE.

Wow...that is an awesome tip. i didn't know you could do that. He is right...the book is so useless. Doesn't cover anything.
