Default Recommendations For 8700g or 8700 in general?

Please Login to Remove!

1. Web Browsers? Whats a good, fast and signal friendly one? I've been using the OEM browser on my Tmobile 8700g for the past year now and want something faster. I keep hearing about Opera...but don't know where to get it or what it is?

2. Weather Push Service? More reliable than the AccuWeather one the 8700g comes with.

3. Ring Tones, Games & General pics? good place to get them?

4. And any other software you guys recommend for my berry will be cool.

1. Google will help you with the first one if you can't find the URL here.

2. I just use a bookmark to Weather Underground's animated doppler. The bookmark is set to be centered on my city and to display at 320x240. Here in Houston, multi-day forecasts are of limited use whereas realtime doppler is actually beneficial since weather can change so quickly along the Gulf plain.

3. I just make my own.

4. I've loaded a number of apps but the ones I use most are Google Maps and Ka Glom.
