New Phone for Me! Any BlackBerry Advice?

I'm now officially a BlackBerry girl! I have the fuschia Curve 9330 and I love it already! I snagged this background from the Re-Lilly Group on facebook:
I couldn't decide between Dirty Shirley and some of the more recent prints because they all have the best shade of pink in them that matches the outside of the phone. I am a little lost with BB world, but I'm slowly getting my footing. I was on the phone for awhile the second day I got my BB with Verizon Tech support, so I hope my phone is running properly, but I'm not 100% sure yet. 

Any BlackBerry tips? I'll take ABSOLUTELY anything! I have all of two BBM contacts, and I just learned how to scan other BB's which is too cool. I really like the features so far, and having email at my fingertips is the best upgrade I've ever made. I don't really know how I didn't make this switch faster. Definitely a big fan already, plus how can you resist the color. When we were in the store the salesman was like, "Would you like to see the charcoal color?" and my sister and I looked at each other and in unison told him we were only interested in the pink (naturally)!

I'll take any and all BlackBerry knowledge that any of you have. I'm your BlackBerry sponge!!

Make sure you update it when it needs or it the phone will slow down. Mine did that a lot. And there are some cool apps like the weather channel and twitter. Also if you want a fun theme google free blackberry { insert the model number of your phone here } themes. Mine usually has a holiday hello kitty one. Hope you enjoy the blackberry, I love mine and can't wait to get the fuscia as I have the light pink one now.

I had the pink 'berry for the last year and I loved it. I have no real secrets (except I'd get a case...everyone I know has dropped it a lot because it's always in hand).

Hope you love it!

I have this phone and I love it! Blackberry App World has a lot of fun things like Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter. BBM is the BEST, I love it. And getting emails to your phone is awesome because your inbox doesn't get clogged. Definitely invest in a case. I have an Otterbox and they're amazing.

I would get the crunch sms application from blackberry app world! It turns your texts into the chat bubbles like on iPhones! The best part is that you can customise the bubble colors! (Mine are pink and green) (:

yes, definitely download Blackberry App World, there are so many fun apps for free! Also definitely invest in a memory chip, I don't have one still and I can literally only take 10ish pictures at a time without having to delete one when I take another. It is sad times. But welcome to the wonderful world of crackberry!

I had the old curve before my droid. That was before the days where everyone had blackberries and it didn't have the scan thing. Email is a life saver and I really like the bb fb app. You'll love it!!!

I've had a blackberry for several months now... and I still can't figure out how to get nifty backgrounds! How do you do it?!

I loveeeee my BlackBerry! I've had one for about 2 years. I have the touch scree Storm now. I would say get some apps bc I love the apps on my phone. You can find them in BlackBerry app world!

How did you get a Lilly background on your blackberry?? I didn't know that was possible. Please help- I want I want!! :)

I love my Blackberry! You are going to love having it. The email is great and all the apps are too, but watch out for the battery life! I feel like I utilize all the features so much that it drains my battery so fast! I also find that I end up taking out my battery about once a week and rebooting the phone because sometimes there are little glitches. Other than that, no problems at all! Enjoy it.

My blackberry freezes a lot, if that happens to yours, just take out the battery and it will reset the phone! Also, the weather bug app is great, and of course the twitter app! I hate the facebook app because it's always slow, so I usually just go on facebook on the browser!

Thanks for the Re-Lilly mention!

I LOVED my Blackberry before I got my Droid! Some great advice here, I second what has been said about updating your phone often and make sure you update the apps often too. My Blackberry used to freeze often but taking out the battery and restarting would fix it. Enjoy!
