Default Hello from a BB and NN Forums newbie.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all, just wanted to introduce myself. I'm new to the forums, and to Blackberries, and a former Palm 700p & 650p user. I probably wouldn't have switched to the 8830 (VZW) but I needed world coverage and my work is stuck with Verizon. I definitely see both advantages and disadvantages to the BB, but I'll make do.I definitely feel better having found these forums, that's for sure. I'll also add I'm using XP and OS X, though only XP for BB (for now)
Off the top of my head, I would tell new BB users that they need to understand how email and data services work compared to say, Palm. The biggest difference seems to be that all email and attachments has to come through (push?) a BB server in order to format to your phone. It took me a while to understand why I couldn't just save and open an attachment ala Explorer or Finder, but I get it now.
That's it for now, I'm heading back to read old posts (the search button is my friend).
