    Active Desktop

    I just made the transition from a Nokia N70 with Symbian to Blackberry. One thing I'm not seeing with my BB that I really miss is an "Active Desktop" where upcoming appointments are displayed directly on the desktop of the handset.

    Anyone know of an add-on or something for the BB that does that?

    much thanks

    Try "Pocketday" for BlackBerry. That should help. It lists emails, text messages, calendar appointments, phone calls, and anything else you want to have on your screen. Not sure what the site is but search for that.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    there is also a "built-in" BlackBerry theme called BB Dimension-Today, which may do what you are looking for.

    It was included as a stock theme on my 7130; not sure if it comes on all new BB's, or just certain OS builds.

    For my money, the best "today" theme is vodafone today. It's clean and simple -- shows voicemail, phone logs, email, SMS, and calendar.

    The thing about the "today" theme where appointments are concerned is that it only displays the next 2 events. And you cannot customise the "today" theme at all. Hopefully this will change with newer OS's.
