I recently purchased a used 7100g off ebay for the cingular network, I just have a few quick questions as to what steps I should take in order to get this thing up and running asap.

I already have a voice plan with cingular, will I just be able to add the data plan and have it start immediatly, or will have I have to change my entire plan?

What are some programs and apps I should get right off the bat?

Ive been reading on this phone and I know there are some issues with the SURETYPE and the screen, other than those are there any other issues I should be wary of? How is the phone as a phone, i.e. call quality, dropped calls, etc.)?

I got this phone because A) my RAZR has been going insane on me and B) I am a gadget freak and I like to stay connected and ontop of everything.

Thank you in advance for your help

You can just add the data plan if ur using it for personal reasons add the 29.99 unlimited and then register ur blackberry then it will let you send ur service books and after that you will be able to browse the internet...a few good apps. If u use Instant Messaging you can download a free app called ramble its decent or u can go to handango and download a few others that are spendy...also bb weathers alright
