new BB user

I recently got a Blackberry Pearl, and I love it. (iPhone can eat it)
Anyway, are there any applications or enhancements you could recommend for me as a new user? :)

Also I'm a bit confused about the BB Messenger. Can anyone use it or is it for BB users only from their phones?

I believe the BB messenger is for Blackberry-to-Blackberry messages only, since you have to use the person's PIN to add them to your list. it's really nice... my husband and I both have Pearls and we have a running conversation in BB messenger instead of sending tons of text messages while we're bored on our separate bus commutes after work. :)

the things I love are:
Opera Mini
UberTwitter (if you tweet)
Flickr Uploader (if you use them)
WeatherEye or BB Push Weather Info - I've noticed the latter is more accurate.
