For all of the BB pro's out there? I'm just getting one and looking for some help.

1. What if any is the best logbook software you would recomend for it. From what i understand logbook pro will not work with the bb.

2. What other programs are a must? (prefer free ones haha)


Thanks for the help!

I second that. Very cool program. I don't know of any logbook programs......I'll ask around (I'm interested too). Don't get the Pearl, I have one and its a POS. Always something wrong.

If you're a frequent traveller that needs currency convertion calculations on an easy basis, this one works well.

Download the application. Then, as you run the application, select the connection options (2nd choice each time), & then "allow connection" - bottom of page.

Depending on your set-up & preferred browser, Opera Mini is very good.

Hi!

LogBookPro is "considering" adding BB to their list of handhelds, but, the last I heard, it doesn't have one yet.

My CEO and I have a BB. They are GREAT for email, and work well for the internet, except no video. Their address book, calendar, to-do list, memos list, etc. work GREAT!

The I-Phone is much better for general internet surfing (and youtube.com). I don't know if they're better for email, or the other organizational functions.

You can easily use the I-Phone on any network, including Verizon.

Hi!

If U want to use the iphone on a CDMA network, there are some easy software mods you need to do. The info is all over the internet, and apple even semi-encourages it.

This is incorrect, you can software mod it to use on other GSM carriers (t-mobile), but you cannot use it on CDMA (verizon, sprint, alltel, and cricket) carriers

<<<< How about a good spell checker thats free? >>>>

Haven't tried any of these (our company BBs are locked down tight!), but some possible options:

Here
Here (several applications) - says BEIKS is free, but the download link says $10....

However, is a checker as good as your spelling?? :D

I have a spell in chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques for my revue
Miss steaks I kin not see
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee four two long
And eye can put the error rite
It’s rare lea ever wrong
Eye strike a quay and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather I am wrong or write
It shows me strait a weigh
Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased too no
It’s letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew!!

So what are the problems with the Blackberry Pearl? I looked at online reviews and the worst problem seemed to be sound quality. I need to get a Blackberry but I don't like the full size, so I'm looking at getting the Pearl or the new flip phone.

I just bought a blackberry bold. Its awsome a little heavy but the speed and the spell checker is a nice touch. The screen is really clear.
