    Advertisement



    Hello all, this is my first post on Pinstack Forums - hope some of you can help me out.

    MY SITUATION:

    - just got my Pearl 2 days ago - first BB for me

    - I don't have a data plan YET

    - running Mac OS X on a powerbook

    - I managed to sync my contacts and calender using PocketMac (took a while, but finally worked)


    MY QUESTIONS:

    - can I browse the web without a data plan? (read something about Opera mini browser..)

    - can I view any email (web based or pop) without a data plan?

    - can I install themes without a data plan?

    - can I do anything without a data plan? lol

    - and finally, can someone recommend a good SLIM case?


    Any help is MUCH appreciated !!!!!

    From one noob to another - you can get your email forwarded to your Pearl by registering those email accounts with your carrier (email setup). For everything else you will need a data plan.

    Lemonzinger, welcome to pinstack! You cannot do any of those without a data plan not even email. Basically your bb is a pda with phone right now.
    You won't be able to get online without it. So there won't even be a per kb charge. You need the service books.

    And as for the case, search here, eBay and even google. It really depends on your needs and where you intend to *put* it

    thanks for all the help everyone!

    One more thing, is it only me or does the back cover slide off easily without actually pushing the release button?

    Your question about themes has been answered several times in other threads. Unfortunately, without access to Windows, you won't be able to unlock other vendor themes. With regards to cases, a lot of people seem to like using a quality skin with one of the Seidio holsters. Personally, I just use the rubberized skin from Seidio and keep my pearl in my pocket (I hate belt clips).
