This is my first Blackberry, it is the Pearl from Verizon. I was wondering what are the first things I should do to it settings wise to make it run it's best.
The thread has received some good responses from CrackBerry members - addressing the first things you should do to your new BlackBerry settings wise and also the first things you should with your new BlackBerry in general (applications to install, accessories to buy, etc.). Some of the settings suggestions made in forums responses I have covered in-depth in two earlier-published BlackBerry 101 articles: The Basics of Setting Up Your BlackBerry and Basic BlackBerry Controls. Both are worth a quick read if you're a new BlackBerry owner. Below are some of the suggestions from the forum thread (my favorite is the first one!):
First Ten Things You Should Do With Your New BlackBerry
Unpack it all, and just sit and look at the 'wonder' of BlackBerry for about five minutes
Delete unused languages, pictures, remove sample video - get rid of things you won't be using
Adjust Backlight Brightness
Adjust Trackball Sensitivity (default is 70, I like my horizontal/vertical at 80)
