    Hey!

    Im a new user. Just bought the 7100g off of Ebay. I was just wandering a few things. First of all:

    Am I going to have to pay more per month using the blackberry than I do with my standard samsung phone? Or am I just going to need to put my SIM in and im good to go?

    I read one of the threads on these forums about how you can even access Myspace? Is the browser that good? With the phone I have now its sometimes even hard to download ringtones from the MediaMall. Or is the browser only that good if I buy a subscription. I have internet on the phone I have now, if that helps answer the question any.

    Thanks for any replies!!

    Kelly

    Hi Kelly! Welcome! Good choice in buying the BB. U'l love it im sure! U do need to subscribe to a BB data plan from yr service provider in order to access the internet and send and receive e-mail. There is a nifty little application called Opera that u can download onto yr BB that enables u to access myspace. And its easy easy to get cool ringtones for the 7100g. Enjoy!

    Welcome to Pinstack, I know you are going to enjoy it here. As to your questions,
    I don't know what provider you are with, but no matter which, you will have to have a special data plan, called a Blackberry Data Plan. I can't say if it will be more than your current data plan or not. If you purchased a truely unlocked bb, than you can just pop your SIM and begin using the Phone and texting. But without a BlackBerry Data Plan you will not be able to use the Data Features.

    Hope this Helps.

    Hey thanks soo much you two!

    That actually does help. I think i'll make a trip to my cingular store tomorrow and talk with them about it.!

    Its going to be just plain awesome to be able to get onto my Myspace from my phone. I travel alot for a country music singer and its always difficult to not be able to get onto my Myspace from the road. Come to think of it though. I believe I would be able to access her Message Boards from my phone too!. Thats too cool. Im upset that I didnt get a Blackberry sooner!

    Tell Cingular you want the Blackberry Personal Data Plan. It's ~$35.00 a month, with $5.00 knocked each month if you have an appropriate data plan. It's all you need. I have heard that some people have problems with Myspace and others don't.

    Edit: The BB Data Plan is used in place of your current data plan.

    Hope this helps

    Ok. Im going to try and not be super annoying. But:

    So I ask them for the plan you just mentioned and it will take place of the plan I have now? Becuase thats like less than what I pay now. Or is it added to what I pay now?

    Thanks for all your help!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Whatever data plan you have now will be replaced with the BB data plan.

    Voice plan will be in addition to that.

    Do you use SMS? If you do, and you have a plan already, that will stay the same.

    BTW, the best place to view Myspace is through Opera Mini...

    It's OTA (Over The Air)
