Default How to get best usage?

Please Login to Remove!

Since I just picked up my BlackBerry 8700g yesterday, Im wondering what you guys all do to maximize device usage?

What features do you find most useful on the BlackBerry? Do you guys use Memopad? Calendar?

What daily functions does using your BlackBerry make easier?

I use my calendar, tasks both wap and internet browsers and alarm clock every single day. Memo pad I use every so often.

A few third party apps that I use almost everyday are Google Maps, Berry 411 and Opera Mini.

Check out the Aftermarket Software thread here: http://www.blackberryforums.com/aftermarket-software/

for more info on a ton of useful applications.

I guess I'm a BlackBerry slacker.
I use my unlocked 8700c (on T-Mo) for SMS, calls, and e-mail from about 7 different accounts. Typically, I use it more as an e-mail notifier, as I don't often reply or compose from my BlackBerry. I suppose I'm under utilizing it. I do use Google Local and/or Google Maps, and occasionally BlackBerry Messenger.

I use it a lot for email and calendar notifications. I was using Yahoo calendar to notify me of upcoming events but as soon as I find something better I am switching to it.

I also use the internet and SMS. I guess I use email first, then internet second then phone third and calendar last.

I keep mine fed from BES server at work.

I keep all of my recipes in the memo pad.

I keep my life organized in the calendar.

I keep all of my contacts (cell numbers, email, SMS, mailing addresses, etc) in the address book which is replicated back to the BES server at work. Then from there it is replicated to all of my other PCs. So once I enter contact information at one place (at the PC or on the BB) i know it gets copied everywhere else. So I only have to maintain one address book (and never worry about losing it).

I use google maps for driving directions. At times I wish google maps was integrated with the BB address book. That way I could select maps targets using existing contacts, or save a map search to an address book record. Actually, it would be nice if when browsing a current address book entry, if I would ideally just scroll in the track wheel and select "route to this address using google maps and current GPS location." That would be the bomb.
