I use it a LOT to receive emails from 5 different email accounts--not just yahoo, and including my own domain. I can reply to emails from my blackberry or just wait until I have desktop access. Email works really, really well!
I also have, at times, done a bit of text messaging and the display history is so good compared to a regular cell phone.
The web browsing is barely adequate, but it's there and it works when you have no other browser available.
This week I had some slack time at the office and BB was one of the areas I decided to learn about. Due to this forum I now have google maps working and even better--SSH. Way cool! I can authenticate to my home linux server using SSH and issue text commands. VPN is next!
Welcome Dirk, from Lancaster UK! And would you look at my sign in name on here too
Anyway, I'm sure you will enjoy your BB *and* this forum. I've got a 8700 which I've had for about 3 weeks, very impressed.
