    My Very First BB Is On The Way!

    Advertisement



    Sprint is shipping out my 8703e, I'll have it tomorrow. I've been using a Treo for the past year for work/personal and I'm tired of both Windows and using a stylus, thus the switch. I've heard nothing but good things about BB's, and this model in particular.

    SO...besides the obvious like setting up the device, any recommendations as to what I should do once I have it in my hot lil' hands?

    Also, is transferring over contact info kept in Outlook easy/hard/impossible?

    Hi BBwannabe,

    Congrats and i think you will have to change your name now that you have one.
    Kidden.......sync-ing with outlook is a cake walk and will work just fine.

    In addition to that you will love the phone it's a workhorse and very reliable.

    enjoy it.

    Unbelieveable! Sprint was supposed to ship the phone to me tomorrow, but f*cked up and send it 2 day instead of overnight. So the phone is arriving Friday, which would be fine except I won't be home! I'm going out on a trip and won't be back until Tuesday. I called Fed Ex, and they stated they will make two more attempts to send the package on Monday and Tuesday, so I guess I'll get it.

    What a mess.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~good look on the switch. I fell in love with mine before I had actually gotten it and as soon as I held it 7250, my life has never been the same since then. Got the 8703e first thing first I have to suggest change the theme PDQ if not sooner.

    Good look for making the jump in the proper direction. Fell in love with mine before I got it. Was like Jim Baker "if I don't get me a blackberry soon Iam going to be called home soon" so I went and got one from my friendly neighborhood ebay and have been hooked every since. Got the Motorola Q for free and I see why it was free so I took it back and got the 8703e and will never go back again. Hate I don't have Cameraberry but Crackberry is where it always going to be. First thing first change your theme please.

    Do a quick search. Sync your palm desktop with outlook, then sync BB desktop manager with outlook. You should have no problems!
