    I wish they would get rid of that certificate notification every time I connect to a wifi network.

    RIM has been doing incredibly great work lately! Updates and beta's are dropping left and right and THIS one is the best! There's a reason that I've never owned another smartphone other than BlackBerry and BBM is a big part of it. If you're reading this and haven't become a Betazone member, get over there and sign up! Go, go BlackBerry go!

    BB then, now, forever!
