Default Hey, first time user

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone. Both my wife and I bought our first Blackberry over the weekend. Our original plan was up with Telus and they were having a deal where you could get the Pearl on a 3 year contract for $0. Since we both needed new phones we figured might as well. Still getting used to it as it feels more complicated than a regular phone. Hopefully I can learn a few things on this site and maybe eventually contribute something as well.

The 8130 has what is called a SureType keyboard.
