    How about ringtones?
    I'd like to make my own - just email those as well?
    What format? MP3?
    Are there time-limits/size-limiits to those?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    to send from Mac to Blackberry via bluetooth. Select on the Blackberry. Recieve File by Bluetooth, then click the bluetooth icon on the mac and select "send file".. follow the prompts.

    To send from blackberry to mac, its the opposite. BUT you do just select the file and send to the mac, a window will pop up and ask if you want to dl/accept the file. Its VERY quite simple.

    TO pair the 2 together. select Bluetooth prefs, and search and look for the phone then it gives you a code to type into the blackberry...etc..etc. Same as you usually set any BT device up.

    I love the pearl. its my first BB ever, such a great piece of equip.

    Just as easy:
    Get yourself a Micro-SD memory card.
    Install on the Pearl.
    Connect the Pearl to your Mac via USB.
    The card will show up like a drive on your desktop. (just like a camera memory card).
    Copy to or from the memory card! (The Pearl will format and put folders on the card - to play back music, your MP3s must be in the "music" folder inside the "blackberry" folder)
