Out of interest & for knowledge sake;...what is the benefit of being on 3 G (such as I phone) compared to EDGE of BB?

No reason to call anyone when everyone I know uses WLM, FB and emails. I do call a few numbers though, and the History records everything.

Second time BB owner:) BB.8520 great .If u don't need Gps or 3G this device is perfect for browsing ,facebook,tweeter,& any kind messenger.(I took from provider BB Service & 200Mb data download monthly).
For youtube need hotspot :)(Wifi)or data transfer more than 3.6Mb/s (3G).
With Gprs or edge not much data transfer.
Much better than bold 9000 (If u don't need Gps or 3G) .

> In reply to safoo @ 2010-04-05 14:58 from i8wS - click to readwell safoo..mine also has only limited to 20 entries (in the call logs)..i doubt that it can be increased like u wanted..if this thing can be increased i also want to know..but,act this thing doesn't bother me bro..anyway,each num in the call logs can save n be viewed its history..it compiled all the missed call,received n dialled in one contacts..meaning to say,each contacts of the 20 contacts have it's own history..unlike nokia where it separate them into 3..one fr missed call,received n dialled..this is hassle!!

JFR/Blackberrian,

So far, around only 20 entries in total of dialed numbers, missed calls, and received calls are saved in the Call log screen.

Can I increase number of entries on the Call log screen, i.e. the last 30 entries in total dialied numbers, received calls, missed calls? where can i do this? where in Options?

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2010-04-05 07:40 from wd86 - click to readThe problem with nokia is that everything from 2007 to now hasn't changed much. And you would think that that would mean a stable, mature OS. It doesn't. Nokias rely too much on FW updates since the release date of each phone. I agree that they have great features but that doesn't make them better. Nokia got lost after releasing the N95-3 and others in those days. The newer ones don't offer much things different except for the N900. Not even the e63 (lack of HSDPA) and n97 (processor too weak for its features).

> In reply to blackberrian @ 2010-04-04 21:57 from v3Ax - click to readThere are a lot of programs but I use one that is for the iPod. Forgot the name though. I just use Firefox' Download Helper and get my videos from Youtube in mp4 format. As for my favorite app, I have 2. UberTwitter for following people (I don't tweet a lot) and BeWeather. I also use Bolt Browser a lot because Opera Mini 5 didn't work with my trackpad. All my other apps are the default ones: Facebook, WLM and that's all. I also use Crackberry Launcher for quick access to the crackberry.com forums and blogs.
