This is my very first Blackberry smartphone...I was using a Moto Q before it got ... BlackBerry Pearl forum
i love love love my berry...it is never out of arms reach and i've had 2 rl panic attacks due crashes...guess you say im an addict!
Welcome to Blackberry and to Pinstack.......both are powerful addictions!!!
I love my 8130!!!! Packed with features and function, but not big and bulky!
Here's my first recommendation for you as far as 3rd party software. It's called Soft Reset....it basically reboots your phone when you need to without you having to pull the battery out......and it's free! http://www.geekandproud.net/blackberry-software/ if you click on the OTA(over the air) link, it will download straight to your BB.
One common flaw with Blackberries is they are not always good at recovering memory that was in use by programs. Even if you close programs you are not using, it still keeps that memory tied up. Using Soft Reset to reboot helps free that memory up. If you don't keep and eye on your available "File Free" and it gets too low, your BB will start deleting your call logs and messages without warning! For more on that see this: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...call_logs.html (but where it says to do a battery pull, just use soft reset, it's easier and just as effective)
Not trying to scare you or overload you with info, but this will save you headaches in the future!!
If you have any questions, check here on Pinstack (it's an amazing source if info) and if you can't find the answer, just ask....someone will help you out!
Thanks! This should be useful.

Welcome to the stack. Um glad you enjoy your new found toy. Let us know if you have any specific questions for you. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
It's nice to hear from someone who actually had the moto Q because thats the one I almost bought yesterday... it's so bulky don't you think? I just got my curve but it really fits my needs and my lifestyle very well, not to mention BlackBerrys in general are way better looking devices. Congrats on your Pearl!
Welcome to the stacks bb is the only one for me
well, how do I change the SMS notification tone?
go into >Profiles> scroll down to Advanced>select the Profile you want to change> then you'll see SMS listed. You can change all the options there.

yes it did actually! thanks a lot, I'll add this to your trust level!
Welcome to the stacks! I know go you feel about the Q! The pearl is way more user friendly. My wife has one and as soon as she can upgrade she will be joining the blackberry family as well. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I love my 8100. I've also been using the BB for about 4 years now. Have had 5 different models so far (soon to be 6 with the 8120).
I've had Motorola (not the Q), Samsung, SideKick, and HP iPaq PPc phones before. This outdoes them all, even my other BB's. Hopefully the 8120 outdoes this current Pearl.
