    This is my first BB or smart phone of any kind. I'm still learning a lot about my phone on this site. I appreciate all the help I've been given.

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    I had a choice of getting the Blackjack or BB Pearl. I got the BB because my company uses a BES and I heard lots of problem with windows mobile phone. I'm glad I got the BB. No problem so far, it is working great.

    Yes, this is my first BB. I switched due the Pearl, size. Many people still don't think I am using one. They see me on it and ask who I am texting : ) Plus, many still don't realize it has a camera. Hard to believe with all the buzz I have heard about it since before it even came out!

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    The pearl is my first blackberry device but i've been interested in them for a while. I think a lot of the interest has a lot to do with all of the competition in the pda/smart phone market driving down the prices. I've wanted one for a while and am so far happy with my choice. Within the last 24 hours I've learned to install programs using DM as well as OTA and convert jad/jar to cod to install as well as update the firmware to accept my 2gb microSD card, tho I can't for the life of me figure out how to access the pdf files on my SD card neither mobi nor beamberry seem to work correctly.

    I couldn't pass up the opportunity to purchase the Pearl. It was the best "bang for the buck" at the store. Since finding this site last night, I'm hooked on the BB. I didn't fully realize what this thing could do.

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    Well, I wanted the RAZR when they first came out a few years ago and I wasn't gonna settle for anything else until I got one. I got one about a year and a half ago and thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. I've been with TMO over 2 years and have had no problems. A strange thing had occured to me while at the table in the breakroom. Everyone had there phone's out and everyone had a flippin' RAZR!!!!!

    So, in October, I received an email from TMO (because I was eligible for upgrade) about the Pearl. I fell in love.....I just had to have it. It's such a beautiful phone. It's sleek and sexy AND it's smart!! Funny thing is, I would've never consider a Blackberry had it not been for the Pearl.....That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

    The pearl is my first. I never liked the size of the other BB's. This thing just rocks though! I am already getting in trouble for spending to much time playing with it.

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    I'm also a gadget junkie but this is my first BB - I've always been interested in them but didn't like the size - then along came the Pearl. So far I'm loving it - think I'm a BB convert for life. This site is fantastic - I've learned a ton - THANKS!!!

    End of rant. Great support board here!

    you should try this OS - its great!

    TMo-Italy 8100 OS 4.2.1.66

    there are some minor bugs, but there are lots of enhancements IMHO. oh yeah you can fix that auto dim feature (albeit sacrificing battery life!) with this one

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    The Pearl is my first Blackberry device as well. I was with Verizon with a windows based treo and switched over to T-Mobile for work. I was originally using a sidekick 3 due to it's ease of use for instant messaging. After 3 months I realized the sidekick is a toy and I needed something more substantial. Thankfully the Pearl had just been released.
    I'll never look back.
