    Ok guys, I am a brand new BB user, just switched over from a Sidekick, and needless to say, my Pearl is 10000 times better!! However, I am still very new here, and just want to make sure that I am getting the most out of my Pearl...I haven't downloaded any apps to it yet...not too sure what is beneficial for me in terms of those. Open to all suggestions and tips! I've been reading through these forums, and you all are GREAT!! Nice to read posts from people who know what they are talking about! So happy to be here!

    Welcome Diamond. It makes since to me that diamonds and pearls go together better than diamonds and sidekicks. As far as Apps. Depends on what you plan to do and what you want to get out of your device. If you can give a little more of that info, I have found that the people here are amazing at sharing the knowledge

    Welcome,
    I just got my pearl too. I like BBtoday(weather and othe things), opera mini(its a different browser), Berry411(just what it says), google maps(just what it says), pico news(rss reader,news feeds).All of these are free. I also like blackberry alerts(notifies you by LED, ringer and vibrate) this one is free for 7 days then $10, highly recommended.

    There are many more out there.

    Good luck, if you have anymore questions just let us know.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~thanks guys! And extra special thanks to Icancn2u for the diamond/pearl/sidekick insight!

    Nice to be here! As for my Pearl...I am in no way involved in the business world, so basically my BB is for entertainment/organizational purposes...hopefully more of the latter...but we all have our weak moments! Do you recommend just googling the above listed apps? Or is there a safer, more efficient way of finding them? I am always open to suggestions of free apps too, of course!

    I would browse the downloads section of the site and/or browse handango.com. Those seem to be proven apps. Also, if it is a app you have to pay for, ask the members here about it to see how it works. I really like the Berry 411, as I travel a lot with my job. Also, go to mobile.blackberry.com from your phone and check out the downloads section
