I'm looking to trade in my Treo 700p for this phone later this week and would just like to know before I purchase the 4GB card.
Just go to Blackberry's software site and select Bell Mobility as your carrier.
This update fixes the biggest issues with this phone (ringer volume, streaming video, mms messaging, docs2go, voice recorder)
This update makes the 8830 just as good as the Curve or Pearl with the exception of having a camera.
The update makes the phone great!
How do I get rid of the signature?
Also, does anyone else always receive a copy of every email they send? I'm using Gmail, I'm not sure if that's the reason.
Lastly, is it possible to reprogram the soft key on the left hand side for something useful rather than voice dialing? If you could use it to lock the phone instead that would be better.

8830 Voice quality killing me ! Can this be on such an awesome device ?
So I got the new 8830 yesterday and I love the OS very much.. The mail and test and overall feel is great. Lots of my friends have the Curve and I expected the voice quality to be at least as good as that.
It's aweful and I mean aweful. You can be anywhere where there is any noise. I was in the mall and called a friend on my Moto V9m and he could talk to me no problem. I called him on the 8830 and he could not wait to hang up. It picks up every sound around you and amplifies...

Best tips & tricks for sprint 8830
Opera browser-works great to "zoom out" and quickly scroll around a page and zoom in to select or click on an open field to enter text, etc.
Download Google Maps and Gmail (if you use it) so you can easily click the icon to check mail, click the maps icon to find location, search for nearby starbucks, Best Buy, etc.

getting ringtones texted to Blackberry from another Verizon phone
I have an out of state relative that has a Blackberry (not sure which model, but will check if necessary). I have tons of custom made ringtones I made, and some that I want to send to him. I have the LG Voyager phone and a texting plan (no Internet, email. etc., and do not plan to add, just for this). When I try to text him a ringtone, sending it as a "picture message", with the ringtone included as a "SOUND", it won't allow him to get it. He's saying it asking him to go online to the (?) Verizon website to even get these messages. I DO know that any text with a ringtone has to be a "picture message" from my end, but that might be creating a problem for the Blackberry ...
