I am thinking of switching from Verizon to Cingular in order to get either the BB Curve or Pearl. My concern is downgrading from the 3g speed to the slower Edge speed. I use the web browsing a lot so my question much slower is the edge vs. 3g (evdo)? Is it a deal breaker?

Video Camera

Anyone know about a hack that will enable video record on the pearl? i heard something, and of course first i said that was BS, but i read something about Rim releasing some codes so it would be possible. im not really into writing software, so does anyone know if this kind of thing would actually be possible or if it has been done?

Camera Hack

I dont know if any of you have any info on this, but i was wondering if its possible for someone to produce a hack that enables the blackberry pearl to capture video. i know its a long shot but, a man can dream right? another on i was hoping to find is a quick hack that rotates pictures from the camera automatically, so when you take a picture using the pearl sideways like a camera, it would automatically rotate from landscape to portrait. thanks for any replys.

Exchange/POP3 Email sync

My Pearl seems to sync just fine for new imcoming mail. When I read it (opened) it syncs and reflects on my Outlook, via Exchange obviously. But when I read/open new mail on my Outlook, the Pearl does not sync my mail as opened/read on the phone itself. Am I missing a detail in my email setup so that it syncs both ways?

I see this issue with my POP3 mail of my cox email account as well. I always get new email to my Pearl, but all email I read or delete (On Email and Handheld) on the Pearl never reflects on my Cox email account. I will log onto my Cox account and I have a ton of email that is 'new' and never been erased.

Any clues, ideas, suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading...
