8830 vs Centro 685

My company is trying to decide between the Blackberry 8830 and the Centro 685. We traveling out of the country frequently; therefore, we need a global phone. In addition, we have some tethering concerns as we as MS Excel functionality. Most of all we need to get email when abroad. Any advice or opinions!

states it's free but I'm nervous and can't find the FAQS to double check.

Can anyone help?

Giving Curve to Girlfriend but...'s the deal:

She has a Pearl and I have a Curve (both with AT&T). I recently bought an iPhone and wanna give her my Curve. However when they activated my iPhone I didn't have the chance to delete my old BIS email accounts on the Curve. I don't know how else to remove them. So that's the first problem.

Also, when she tried using her SIM card to test out the phone, one of my old BB Messenger contacts sent a message. How is this possible? How do I stop this from happening? Last thing I need is for one of my buddies to say something incriminating. lol.

Anyway, any other advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Yahoo Messenger 2.0

Pretty cool. I set it up the other day on my At&t 8310. You have to download the service book for it and upload it to your phone, but once on it works great and uses data rather than text messages.

It also uses the same functions as the blackberry so no odd integration problems.

Whats Your PIN?

I saw this on some other forums and thought it would be a nice thread for PS. I thought this would be a nice way to find and chat with other Blackberry users. For those of us that have Blackberry Messenger, post up your PIN!

Mine is 317E2368!

Themes needed for OS version 4.3 and newer

I currently have the VZW BB Curve with OS version 4.3 When I go to and search for themes, there are none available for my OS version. I really miss the theme I had on my AT&T Curve that was named Today Plus.

Any help in locating themes, free or $$ for OS versions 4.3 and newer?

Thanks in advance!

messages/calls erased

Is there any way to keep my messages and calls from being erased from my phone? I do not have many programs taking up memory and keep my internet history/unnecessary text messages erased to try to free up as much space as possible. Is there a reason that this occurs? One day everything is there, the next gone. Thanks for any advice.
