Tips for new Blackberry user? Answered

Picture of

Suddenly I got an overwhelming urge for a Blackberry so I went down to the local telco store and got myself a BlackBerry Curve 8310 (the one with the camera and GPS). I'm sure that there are a lot of tips&tricks; to learn and good utilities / applications to download to enhance the functionality of this little neat device. Does anyone have any tips or pointer to good websites for blackberries except the official blackberry-site and handango?

I'll try to avoid that. :-) I'll also try to avoid having it in my frontpockets of my trousers when I'm out taking a walk. With 80+% humidity and temperatures ranging from a low and nice 30C(86F) to a hot 50C(122F) it's probably gets a bit too sweaty and damp for the blackberrys liking. But I definitely absolutely refuse to wear it in one of those nerdy and butt ugly belt holsters. To have a phone on your belt is as bad as wearing a tie to a short sleeved shirt or using socks in your sandals when wearing shorts....

if you are a true geek, you must use one, to showcase your device and demonstrate superiority over those who have less powerful or no pdas.
