Non-BlackBerry Page!

Its their mobile site (you won't be able to open it from your browser) which you can access from the Blackberry browser. A few applications which you can download.

Akshay- how much you paying for the Bold?
I use ZYB app for contacts, works brilliantly. Google it and upload. When you get the BB add the Zyb app and download contacts. Only glitch is Nokia allows two mobile phone nos per name while BB only one. So if you have names with two mobile nos the second will get deleted.
You can also use the traditional method of backing up via Nokia pc suite to outlook and then sync to BB.
Msn is inbuilt, just go to the instant messenger folder in the menu.

No, it supports multiple nos but only one provision for mobile.

Where you getting it from? Can you check the price there for 8900.

Boy ! that is news for me. I am planning to buy new berry for me in next month.
I do use ZYB on my both phone. Sony and iPhone. and ZYB works pretty good.
So lets say if my friend have 2 numbers(mobile and landline) and i sync up with ZYB server via berry. which one gets deleted ?
Is there any workaround for this ?

actually croma have something called power squad which does provide service for brands like htc, sony ericsson, compaq etc.. they are upgrading it to a better and a longer list of companies..believe me its not easy to allow companies to get the knowhow on servicing or repairing a product or to get the permission for it from the brands...for eg. nokia earns a lot from its authorised service centres and they dont want to give it to a LFR like croma.

I am thinking about making a sticky know-it-all post about BB's soon so it can be of help to everyone.

The 299 plan only supports the following applications.

Yahoo Messenger
GTalk Messenger
MSN Messenger
BlackBerry PIN Messenger

& ofcourse the inbuilt email capability, I was trying to reverse engineer it sometime back but had misplaced my BB in Surat and subsequently got it back but the BIS plan was disabled. Would soon be back on it and see what I can dig up.
