In my (very recent) Palm days I used a program called Tryda (previously Directory Assistant") ... 3rd Party BlackBerry Software forum
In my (very recent) Palm days I used a program called Tryda (previously Directory Assistant") and have been looking for a Berry equivalent.
I have found things that come close. It does 411 (yellow pages, white pages), and does all the reverse lookups with the results coming up in the application, no launching of a browser - and ties to google maps. One thing it had was Neighbor Search, where it would list all the names and addresses found near an address.
Have I overlooked a program out there? Tryda's site says coming soon is Windows Mobile, but no love for the Blackberry. Tryda is free too.
alot of ppl use Beyound 411 for their BB's
it does however launch the browser
The young man knows the rules, and the old man will enforce them!
I use whitepages, and just have it bookmarked.
I have used Beyond411, and it is ok - but not exactly a replacement.

Blackberry's builtin browser has the settings to supposedly emulate other browsers, but it does not (for this page, anyway). I am wondering if the site sees my gateway and re-directs me no matter what I set on my Berry software wise. Unable to locate anything for Opera Mini to emulate other browsers.
Thanks for the replies.
