    Question Blackberry Newbie

    Advertisement



    Hi all! We are new to the world of Blackberrys. We recently got BB Pearls (8100c) through Cingular with the cheapest data plan and we have no idea how to do anything. How do you send/receive email? How do you send texts? Do you have to have an additional text plan just to send/receive texts? We sent each other texts and neither of us received anything. We'd also love to take advantage of the MP3 feature and add our own ringtones from songs we've already downloaded, but how? I installed the software to our computer and sync'd the BB, but when trying to add a MP3/song it said it wouldn't fit.

    Please direct me to some BB Pearl for Dummies thread!

    To start sending and receiving emails you need to set up your email accounts, usually there is a "setup email accounts" or "email settings" icon on your BB homescreen.

    Sending and receiving texts may require a seperate package if your carrier does not offer pay as you go.

    Using the desktop manager you can add music to your BB through the media manager. There is a limit on the size that can be put through the media manager, dont know exactly what that size is though. Someone with a pearl will though.

    If you have any other questions please ask.
