web browsing iphone vs. blackberry

how does browsing on the internet on the blackberry compare to the iphone? My brother has an iphone and the web browser blows me away because its just like what you see on a computer screen, and its not "watered down" like most other (of not, all) cell phones. Is the blackberry like the iphone?

save documents?

Does anyone know if I can save word documents on my Pearl to use as email attachments when I send out emails from the Pearl so that I don't have to get on my real computer to send the attachments?

Compair to the Treo 680

I'm thinking about switching from the Treo 680 to the pearl. This is my second replacement. I've checked the user reviews and want to know what the users of both phones have to say. I'm tired of my treo locking up or rebooting. The battery life SUCKS. It costs at least 20 bucks for a decent game. And now my speaker seems to going nuts cuz I'm hearing static now. I've had my treo 680 since Nov.06. Any thoughts???

Memory Problem

So I have a 2gb transflash memory card, I had a few files on it that the blackberry didnt recognize and was a little stumped until on the blackberryforums, I ran across the fact that I had to format the memory on the blackberry first. So I formatted it and then pulled out the transflash card, slid it into the sd converter, and popped it into my computer. Pulled up the card and now it has a blackberry file system on it. Ok, so I go to the music file then try to copy some file into the file only to get the error, this disk is write protected please remove the protection. ????? Any clue guys? I also tried to reformat the card in my computer and it wouldnt let me for the same reason. So help please.

Is there an equivalent to Mobile Office on BB's?

I'm in the market for a new phone. I'd like to get a Blackjack, and one of the main reasons why is the Mobile Office (Word in particular). However, AT&T is giving me the run around about getting the cheaper MediaMax data plan instead of the PDA Connect. I'm thinking about just saying forget it and going with either the Blackberry Curve or Pearl and their $30/mo data plan.

Does the BB Curve or Pearl have a word processing type software feature, something roughly equivalent to Mobile Word? Ideally, I'd like to be able to load .doc or .rtf file to the phone and be able to work on it.

No hope for internet connection?

I haven't been able to get the browser capabilities to work just yet. I called AT&T and they explained that Blackberries use a dedicated server and that the pay-as-you-go data plan is not compatible. I'd have to purchase a $30 monthly Blackberry Data Plan...boo to that! Is there any way I can access the internet from this phone without this huge charge? I only use it on rare occasions.

Data cable or bluetooth?

Does the Pearl come with a data cable through AT&T? I also have a Bluetooth USB adapter, will that work in place of data cable, or do I have to spend the $25 on the sync cable?

Do I have a faulty phone or am I just operating incorrectly?

When I put the battery in my phone, it shows an hourglass for several minutes and then loads the main menu. I can scroll around fine, but I can't get into any of the menus or operate the keypad unless I remove the battery and reinsert it. Then I can usually get into a menu before I have to take the battery out again. Is there a phonelock I'm not aware of?

I'd like to be able to get into the options to reset the phone.

Removing the "ABC" from the home page

I thought that I had seen something in the forum about removing the pesky "ABC" icon from the home screen. It's on the top right hand corner and blocks the signal indicator and other things in different applications. It's useful when you're typing or texting but when you aren't doing that I don't have a need for it to be there. If there is any help out there, please send it my way. If it's already posted then direct me to that post.

Thanks guys.

Back in Black (berry)

I tried to love it. I really did! But for all of its bells and whistles, its glossy lipstick and high heels, it's just not the BB! I understand it never claimed to be, but still it sucked me in like a moth to a flame! So while it hurt so good to stray for one week, it's Back in Black(berry) for me! LOL!
