    As far as I know, you can't...

    However on a different note: Today I got a notice from "PayPal" claiming that my account information had been changed and incorrect. Don't know how they got my BlackBerry email address, but the funny thing is, I don't even have a PayPal account. So...Just a word of advice for the rest of ya to keep on your toes.

    spoof@paypal.com - I send many emails there every day.

    Paypal does have a text/phone call way to send money. I registered, which requires them to call you on the phone, but I have never used the service.
    Paypal's website doesn't work well on a BB.

    I know about sending money via phone through Paypal, but I want to be able to check my balance, etc...

    Guess I'll have to search further...

    Trying on the Opra mini browser on my BB and it let me log in and I can see my balance, ect. I got a message from the browser (I think) that says the communication wasn't secure. But you can get into the site.
    The Opra mini browser is cumborsome at best to use, but you can get there.

    Word of caution Melissa, if your not connecting to paypal via a secure connection (ssl), then DO NOT log in. Your password is sent in plain text. Any 14 year old bad hacker can get it, and then get to your account. Which could be linked to your bank account. Its not worth the risk.

    Using the standard browser, I have purchased at least 10 apps from AppWorld via my PayPal account. Very fast and simple. Def could be Opera Mini.

    Not only does their website not work well. You call the number listed, which is a long distance number and sit on hold for over 35 minutes and still none of them have the answers to your questions. I just stopped making purchases from them and go directly to the sites.

    Don't look for any supported from Sarah " The online help it's worthless and their phone help is awful. That is if anyone ever gets on the line
