Blackberry advice?

    Hey, friends, just ponied up for a Blackberry 8800, which will be delivered to the homestead on Wednesday.

    Any advice from B-Berry users out there? I'm upgrading after almost 3 years of using a POS Motorola.

    For example, how in the heck do I transfer the 326 numbers I have stored in the old phone to the B-Berry?

    Your provider's local store should be able to transfer them over ... or they can just transfer SIM cards. Really not hard.

    I *love* my crackberry. Too much, probably. The wife, predictably, hates it.

    The 8800 is a great choice. Almost never crashes. Keep charged though.

    The best add-on I've gotten is Google Maps. Download it while using the BB browser and you get instantaneous GPS for free!!

    As for media, you need a better memory card if you want any more than 4 pictures and 2 songs.

    How does the Blackberry do on EDGE through AT&T? I hear it is painfully slow..

    Not slow for me, and I live in a part of the continent known more for good barbecue and dirt roads than quality cell service.

    I have the 8300 -- the Curve -- and love it. I could use a bigger memory card, though. But my paper bought it for me, so I guess I can invest a LITTLE into it. :)
