My one newb question is what exactly is the blackberry messenger. I looked into it a little elsewhere but never got a straight answer.
If anyone has any questions for me or just wants to say hey just message me.
Welcome to the forums Paul! I am sure you will enjoy all of the information here along with all of the awesome members.
The Blackberry Messenger is an IM application that works Blackberry to Blackberry and your must have a Blackberry Data Plan. To use it get your PIN number Menu>Options>Status and share it with some friends that have BB's as well. You can add each other and chat as much as you want under your Blackberry Data Plan (it counts as data not text).
