Default new to blackberry and im recieving a 7100i

Please Login to Remove!

hi, i have been reading the guides listed throughout the site and have been going back and forth trying to understand the BB lingo and have come up with a few questions that i could not answer myself. forgive me if they are listed somewhere else that i did not see....

is one firmware upgrade recommended over another? do they all work with the nextel version?

i saw that we cannot do ringtones uploaded from computer as of yet and must download them via net directly onto the unit itself, what WAP's are recommended for doing so and which are preferably free? also are there any where i can upload my ringtones from my computer and have them sent to my blackberry via WAP?

which programs are the ones highly recommended for the blackberry, i saw the guide and am looking forward to having the google maps prog. but am unsure about loading my berry with any other programs as to not slow it down in any way or make it a pain in the ass to work with.

also, which programs would be highly recommended when synching or uploading different things to the berry? and where would be the best place to get them?



again, if any of these question have been previously been answered, please dont flame, i am still reading through the numerous threads regarding berry newbs.


BTW, i am coming from numerous motorola phones and the i870 was the most recent.

you can not put any MP3 ringtones on your 7100i period. Nor can you put any .WAV ringtones on your 7100i. The browser will not handle/suport the downloading of them sorry. So as far as what you have read so far I would go back over and read a little more carefull this time.

Sorry if MythmbHurts last statement was rude in his response.

Different Blackberry models, handle things differently. For instance, my 7130c is able to download ringtones from the internet while the 7100i can't. However, there is going to be a update out for nextel sooner or later which will most likely change this.

Instead of me writing down all the cool BB apps, check this thread out:
POLL: List the 3 BB apps you cant live without (other than stock system apps)

It may help you with your decision of blackberry applications.

As for synching, all I have ever needed was Desktop Manager, I honestly don't know if there are any other programs to enhance this.

I hope these answers have been helpful.

And, welcome to the forums!
