    Re: cbs mobile news

    i get the CBS News ToGo text message news updates.

    a thread about them can be found here: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...rts_pearl.html

    if you have plenty of text messages in your plan, its nice to get up-to-date news on the major things. most of the time, its just a paragraph of news, but sometimes there is a video attached. the video plays on the pearl, which is really nice.

    note: in the thread attached, there are a couple links to video examples, but they don't play anymore.

    hope that helps.

    I have been using this for a few months and it is pretty useful. You get a 30 second video recap of a major story.

    not sure if you can customize the amount per day, but i don't think.

    sometimes you will get 2 or 3. sometimes 1. sometimes i won't get any for a couple days. only the big headliner news gets sent.

    it counts as SMS so you are good to go if you have unlimited SMS.
