    I'm really impressed by my new 8130...but there are so many features and shortcuts. Did you write out a cheat sheet for your first few months?

    Haha I don't think I'll ever learn it all. I did print out a list of shortcuts in the beginning. But I learn the most by reading posts here. Welcome to the best BB resource on the planet!~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I agree, this website is a GREAT resource. But I picture myself standing in a store or office, and wanting to do something that I learned here....duh! I guess a list of shortcuts would be the best bet.

    Haydn threw out an amazing shortcut thread not too long ago which was incredible, you can save it to your BB for quick access if you dont want to have a piece of paper with you all the time. Its pretty intuitive, for example if you want to do something try just typing the letter of what you want to do. ie: the menue window is up and you want to reply, type R and it will go to reply. this also relieves a lot of stress on the track ball, i know that little ball lives such a hard life... enjoy!

    Here's the shortcut thread:

    Best bet is just to read the forums as much as you can and you can't go wrong.

    Hands-on. Played with all of my BB's for hours on end after getting them (read the manuals also). Also, head on over to www.blackberrymadesimple. They have ebooks, videos, books in print that you can buy for any SureType device (71 and 81 series) and full keyboard models (83 on down to 6xxx).

    Then found this forum and several others just to meet people who use BB's.

    Play around with it. Try things. Delete things.

    This forum is AWESOME, and the Pearl is AMAZING!

    Re: how did you learn it all?

    I would have to agree with most here, but mostly just playing with device hands worked the best for me. The things you can do with the device are endless so if you think you should be able to perform something try it out on your own or search the stacks or post your question. It all comes natural if you have the patients.
    I'm true to the game called Blackberry!
