Great if you have that specific model BlackBerry,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: BlackBerry in a Snap (Paperback)The book was specific to one particular model of BlackBerry. They should have that in the title. It was of no use to me. After five minutes, I set it aside to gather dust.

This review is from: BlackBerry in a Snap (Paperback)How can you tune your new Blackberry wireless to get advanced jobs completed, such as synchronizing data with your PC, managing appointments and tasks, and turning on the firewall? It helps to have Blackberry In A Snap, which covers the BlackBerry 7100 series and offers a teach-yourself workbook format lending to tweaking and do-it-yourself programming. From downloading ring tones to using Bluetooth, Blackberry In A Snap makes BlackBerry a snap to program and integrate with existing systems.
Worth a read,
This review is from: BlackBerry in a Snap (Paperback)I bought a 7130e and stumbled around for a few days trying to tweak it as a Palm replacement. Morrison's book is clear, informative and not superficial. It accelerated my productivity on the Blackberry immensely.
It is a basic book though, so it doesn't go beyond what a solid manual would have covered. So there are still a few areas that I don't understand well. Also, while there are some tips on workflow, more would be welcome. When Morrison talks about more than just the function of the controls, but rather how to put customizations into workflow, the book becomes more valuable.
