    My trial period ends a a few days. I'd rather not pay $30 for a dictionary. Anyone have any sites for a free dictionary. Used to have one on my Treo.

    You can use Google; you make an entry like "dictionary: gargoyle", and it returns entries from online dictionaries. This method saves some space on your Berry as well.

    Store this email address in your address book, wsmith@wordsmith.org. Send an email to the address and in the subject put the word "define" and then the word you want a definition for. You will get a response typically within 10 seconds.

    You can go to wap.getjar.com and search for a dictionary.

    Or you can go to this address

    Desktop: http://www.getjar.com/software/unive...rch/Dictionary

    This works like a charm.

    I am anticipating the day we can simply highlight a word in an email and lookup the definition without any further action like dictionary.com or wordsmith. I can do this currently in mobipocket, lets get it in an email or text field.
