Hey guys Im new to the site, Just getting to grips with my BB atm, Any tips and tricks that might prove usefull?

Making my own themes?

Getting Maps to work/uploading google maps?


these things I cannot seem to find atm.

My names Lee btw. from Birmingham, UK

Also if not too much trouble

whats the score with google maps?

I am a UK user and I went to this site

google dot com slash mobile slash default slash maps.html

it told me I have not got a valid number :/

Guessing it just wants US users. Any help at all and once it is installed how do I get a button on my home screen to go straight to it?

Do I have to set anything else up to use it?

Go to google. Type in gmm. Then follow the link to google mobile. Its like the 3rd link I believe.

I'm not really sure what kind of tips you are really looking for. Software? Useage? Is this ur first berry?

And once you have the browser icon, you will have your service books.

Most of the stuff you'll need is on bbfaq. I can answer questions if I know what ur looking for

Also, please don't double post. The mods don't like that too much here.

Welcome to the forums!!!! Search the site for answers to questions as most have been answered before... If you don't find the answer, then ask away in the area designated for such question...
