    The software below, all of which is free (except for JiveTalk, which is so good I had to list it anyway!), is VERY highly recommended and I use most of them on a regular basis... Best of all, they can all be installed OTA (over-the-air, without the use of a computer) via the BlackBerry's built-in Internet browser!

    Stated versions and notes were current at the time of writing - some version numbers, notes and names refer to the Australian version of the said software, however the links below will all allow you to select different countries/international versions, where appropriate.

    I have primarily listed OTA links as at this stage, I do not own, nor do I have regular access to a computer...
