Re: Just got my first blackberry and I need HELP!

Go to your Internet Browser adn type in the the following address - http://www.blackberry.com/instantmessaging/ . This link will provide you all the available messaging programs. AOL is not available for all the carriers right at the moment. Some selected carriers can avail this application in their BlackBerry. May be in future RIM will take a different view on this application.


Do you have any media/memory card installed in your device? If you like to listen to music in your BlackBerry you you should have a media card. Connect you device with your PC via USB cable and copy past your music files in your music folder of media card.
