    Smart phone too smart for me?!

    Advertisement



    I've always considered myself to be...if not tech savvy, at least knowledgeable. It was contract time to think about a new phone so I chose BB and got a Pearl. After looking through these pages I'm afraid that I may have too much phone for my needs. There is soooooooo much that I can (apparently) do I am overwhelmed!

    Additionally, there are so many abbreviations and acronyms that I'm finding it hard to decipher. By the way, is there a glossary or something around here?

    Any suggestions/directions to head? I feel like I don't even understand enough to ask coherent questions.

    ARGHRGHRGH!!

    Be patient. The Blackberry operating system is it's own little beast. Think of it like Windows. If you had never been exposed to a PC and someone gave you one, trying to immediately learn all of Windows features would seem too overwhelming.

    The are too many shortcut keys. Start by learning the ones you use the most and then build on them. Look on this site for posts about what other applications others have put on their Blackberries. Some of these add ons are really handy (Beyond411 Search, TipMaster...)

    The longer you have it, the more impressed you will be with all the features it contains.
