What do I need a Data Plan for?

  • Do I need a data plan to get email?

Yes, without a data plan all you have is phone, SMS, and PIM services. (ie… Outlook, Contacts, Calendar ect..)

  • Do I need a data plan to access the internet?

Yes you will need a data plan to access the internet

  • Do I need a data plan for MMS?

Yes, on most carriers, you will need a data plan to send/retrieve MMS messages.
With NO data plan you may:

  • make phone calls
  • send/receive text SMS messages
  • NOT use any instant messenger program that anyone has found so far
  • use the device as a standalone PIM
  • NOT send or receive any information over the internet, in any way shape or form, despite what you heard about it being possible

With a generic data plan in addition you may:

  • use a third party browser like Opera Mini, but NOT the resident BlackBerry browser
  • may get email either via a web interface (using Opera) or other third party app, but NOT BlackBerry push email
  • use a number of third party applications that require net access, including some instant messenger programs, as long as they’re available to install from DM because:
  • canNOT install apps OTA because that requires the resident browser
  • canNOT use BlackBerry messenger or do PIN–>PIN messaging

With a BlackBerry data plan you may do all of the above plus:

  • receive true BlackBerry push email from up to 10 different email accounts
  • use the resident BlackBerry supplied browser to access the internet
  • install applications OTA via the supplied resident browser
  • use BlackBerry Messenger and send PIN–>PIN messages
