BlackBerry® Pearl also has UMA technology (Wi-Fi and Mobile Calling)
Tsai Tsing Wai, 07 Mar 2009Every BlackBerry (phone OS) has a Presets equalizer. Like "pop" "jazz", "bass boost" etc... ... moreI work for Rogers and advising that people use Googlemaps on their phone is ludacris unless they have a 2 to 3 gig service they will be charged huge. With googlemaps you must load EVERY detail, if you want to change the view again you have to reload the entire picture. If people are looking for a expensive phone bill for looking up a tiny little map be my guest, but I don't think it's worth it. If you need to find your way that bad go buy a map. It will save you money in the long run if you don't have GPS. Also, GPS isn't free on the phone, you have to upload it to your system and then you have to pay $10 a month to your service provider (That's the Rogers cost anyways). Hope this helps keep your phone bill managable. CHEERS
chino.sr, 03 Mar 2009HI,i own this phone about a month,hangs and freezes alot !! so i have to take out tha battery ... moreOperating System update! Goto BlackBerry Site... lookup your Operating System version and sub-version. See if it is the latest. I had these issues with my Bold in Nov 2008... all resolved in minutes after an OS update.

Oh please do lookup 'help' (the question mark icon in BB Operating System)if you want to read instructions on how to do things with it. It is very concise and explains it all also goes online to the site if you allow it to to fetch you an answer :)

Bb take 4ever to start . and 4get about just plug in and turn on if your battery drains . You have to let it charge 4 atleast and half and hour before it will be able to boot. If u want a real smartphone than go 4 symbian or win mobi . bb is expensive compared to other phones with the same functions .
