Although the experience went very well, here are a few mistakes and problems I experienced along the way:
Not my fault:
1. The Pearl was not provisioned correctly. The Internet browser and the maps application were not set-up. I had no access. A quick call to Verizon had everything fixed. The customer service was excellent and very knowledgeable. They uploaded the correct service books and I restarted the black berry.
1. Before activating my enterprise license to connect to Big Company's BlackBerry server, I used the desktop tool to transfer my data. I should have excluded my appointments. As when I connected my black berry to the black berry enterprise server it downloaded duplicate appointment information. Fortunately, it did not download duplicate contacts - I have a few thousand.
Not my expectation:
1. The black berry desktop application has a function to move data from one handset to a new one. Unfortunately, it does not move third party applications.
What mystifies me:
1. I have only about 10-12MB free, but my device gives no indication as to why i would have so little memory. Anyone deal with this?
