Thanks to Michael and every one else who responded

1. My phone is not locked to a phone company so while it may be locked to Acer 
at least I don't have the added complication of it being dependent on a phone 
company. Still I would like to upgrade to 2.1 or 2.2.
2. I now have the phone connected to the wireless access point of my bigpond 
Nextg router which means any internet activity is charged to my wireless BB 
account which is not quite as expensive as my prepaid mobile account.

3. I've downloaded and installed ConnectBot so now have access to the command 
line. I've yet to ssh to my desktop but that will come.

4. I'm still struggling a bit with the keyboard but being a septuagenarian I 
think I might be excused :-)

Thanks again everyone for your help, I'm sure to have more questions soon.
