Newbie: What is your favorite feature?

Care to share your favorite feature? I am tryint to get to know my new BlackBerry This is so different from the Treo but I do love that the email is delivered without delay.  Hoping to discover why the Verizon Rep.  thinks the BlackBerry is a Superior Product!

 

Thanks

I am new to BB too! I have the curve and like you, I like the quick emails - but mine is all personal use. I dont use it for work!  So I look forward to hearing what others say their favorite feature is too!! thanks and welcome!

Re: Newbie: What is your favorite feature?

All in all if I had to pick my favorite feature it would also have to be the push email. I do also like the weather app I have. It's called weathereye It tells me the current temp with a picture of the conditions outside and notifies me of severe weather alerts. I had to download this but it's free.

Does this icon appear on your home screen at all times or do you have to log on to view it?  I think I would enjoy having that feature.  Right now I use the weatherbug icon under the browser options.  Thanks for sharing!

Re: Newbie: What is your favorite feature?

Forgive me I use weather bug for the features I listed above. But yes it is on the home screen at all times and automatically updates. You can also click on it and it will go to the website and give you focasts. I also use weather eye too. I like that one because I find it easier to look at upcoming forcasts. That is also an icon on my home screen.

Re: Newbie: What is your favorite feature?

So the weather displays on your home screen just like the date/time?  And you downloaded this feature from weatherbug?

Re: Newbie: What is your favorite feature?

Well yes but it gives you an icon like your address book or your email. It doesn't go on the top like the time and date.

Re: Newbie: What is your favorite feature?

Push email is setting up an email address on your BB. Then the emails you receive are delivered to your device as well as your PC. It is really handy to read emails on the go. If you would like any help is setting up this feature please ask. We will be happy to help.
