Format: Paperback
I eagerly awaited the arival of this book, only to be faced with a manual on where to find shareware or commercial applications! As an example, the cover boldly states "Download and install custom ringtones". I then looked up the chapter only to be faced with the fact that I have to go subscribe to a service for $19.95(US) per year to load ringtones! That's not a hack, that's an excuse to push product! In this case I found all the information I need on Google to do this for free - that's a hack. The rest of the book is filled with commercial software recommendations and I was amazed that all the real hacks I found elsewhere on the Internet are not mentioned or explained?!

Seriously, save your money if you know how to use your BlackBerry and look elsewhere at the books available on Amazon.

Obviously this book is old, and I take that into account . But this book is just ridden with bad information. Most of the information it posts is really common knowledge, and unlock O'Reillys BlackBerry hacks, I really found no useful information in this book. It was repetitive, most steps were confusing. And I had a really hard time finishing it. Really should not get this if you want to get a step up on the devices, your better off checking out some forums. Huge Let down.
