I do - I do!

I use Google apps (maps, search, news, documents, etc.) Pandora radio, Opera mini browser, Facebook, Bible software (Olive Tree), and a couple of others (games).

Check out Crackberry.com. Tons of info.

I love mine too. I have had it for about 3 months now.

I have google mail and maps set up. I also have opera mini but only use it when I can't get to something with the regiklar browser.

I'm wondering if there are any billing programs that I could have an app that will sync with the desktop.

I love it for emails though. I get a lot of work off craigslist and the fast response to emails has given me an edge on those estimates as I am responding before they close their email program.

Thats a damn good idea right there, I have the Pearl and am not happy with my purchase because the buttons are too small and you really have to push em in to get it to type.

Yeah I got a Pearl also. Wish I would have gotten a curve now, but its my first blackberry and I didnt realize it would be such a pain with the small keyboard.

Otterbox is SWEET. I have dropped mine into a stream from a sprinkler and continued my conversation. I use a bluetooth headset... I look kind of gay, but it is a real convenience.
