    Kind of a stupid question...

    Advertisement



    I've had my BlackBerry Pearl for about a month already, and I was just wondering if in order to have an email with BlackBerry, do I need to have a data plan or anything? I really wanted to set up an account with them, but I wasn't so sure if I had to do any of this. Kind of a dumb question, but I'm not really familiar with this. This the first BlackBerry I've had, but I'm already loving it.

    Definitely not a stupid question; that's what we're here for.

    If I were you, I would look into getting the unlimited data plan; it's pricey to some, but well worth it.

    welcome to pinstack!
    yes, you are gonna want a data plan to use that BB to its fullest! not to mention, you can have almost ANY other email account "pushed" to your BB once you get a data plan. no more going out and checking gmail or yahoo. it is delivered straight to your BB!

    To me, that's the whole point of getting a BB -- the push email, the Internet, Google Maps, instant weather, etc. and the data plan is well worth it. I just wish they include text messaging -- what a pain you have to pay extra for that.

    Thanks, guys. =) Well, I wanted to add a data plan to the phone, but since my parents are the ones paying for it, you know how that goes. They don't see the point of it. =/

    Hey you need some type of plan. Warning its a BB though so most people I know myself included have the unlimited plans bc you'll be on and that service charge is no joke if you don't have the right plan. Good luck to you

    ^^Yeah, I guess I'm going to have to get one of those. I'd just be easier to have one.

    Re: Kind of a stupid question...

    i initially got my pearl as an organizer / mp3 player / phone combo (i hate carrying multiple devices) with no intention of using it for anything else especially internet.

    But a week after getting it and being on the stacks i just couldnt help myself, so many helpful features and things to keep my busy all day(especially at work)

    Re: Kind of a stupid question...

    ^^Yeah, definitely. I think I'm going to have to end up getting one. I'm not so sure which one is the best, though.

    The one you need is the $19.99 unlimited Blackberry Internet plan or what ever TMO calls that plan.
