    are you going tot he site and trying to play them? if so that won't work because as far as i know blackberrys cant' play streaming videos. if your downloading it from your pc to your computer you need to convert them with blackberry video converter here is the link http://www.seabyrdtech.com/bbvideo

    The newest blackberrys with 4.3 os can watch you tube now, the others need to wait for the 4.5. For example I have a 8130 and I can watch
    You tube now. Hang in there.

    google media converter and it should be a website. you enter the URL of the video into the website and it will let you down load the AVI file and then you use the above software he mentioned. drag and drop and enjoy!

    Your service provider will probably send out a text to notify you. Or you can check their site from time to time. Or you can follow blackberry update news on this site. Lol.

    Choose the latter.
    You will find out about the release on Pinstack WAY before your service provider will notify you, if at all.
    With regards to AT&T and TMO

    The reason it wont play youtube is becuase youtube uses flash player, currently the only phones that i know of that have flash are windows mobile. though check out the opera mini browser, hopefully will have flash support by the end of the year.
