well im new. thats about it. i have used the palm platform for many years. sso gettng used to the bb is a bit different. i am sad to see that i cant use my pearl to connect my laptop to the internet through cingular without paying an arm and a leg. That is something i used a lot with the treo line of smart phones. i also used to have sprint.... well so i am ehre now and for the most part i am enjoying the pearl quite a lot.
