    BB Curve without Data Plan

    Advertisement



    I just got a Curve. Love the thing. Some of you will cringe to learn that I have not bothered yet with a Data Plan. Not making full use of this incredible device seems a little negligent, but since I will not be using it for Emails, I'm just not sure its necessary. Web access would be nice but not really needed. What applications require Data?
    PS. Great site. I have learn many things about my BB and, dare I say, it has greatly improved my learning Curve! (Oh, Brother!)

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i have been using my pearl instead of my curve for the last few days without email and haven't used the internet. I must say that these are great phones even without the data plan. Have fun with your new phone

    There are so many wonderful applications out there that you are missing out on! Things like beyond411, google maps, infospace find it, games, bb messenger... I could go on and on...

    I guess what I'm trying to say is, the bb is awesome by itself... but without a data plan, it's just (dare I say it?)..... a phone.

    I agree and can understand your desire for the BlackBerry even without a data plan... especially in Canada.

    beam do you have a curve with wi-fi? cause then any time you're in a wi-fi hotspot you can just surf the web through the wi-fi instead of through BB data plan...just a thought and tell RIM they're doing a great job and keep it up

    Get a plan...a BB without a plan is like a car without a steering wheel...yes it will take you places but you sure can't steer.

    Re: BB Curve without Data Plan

    I just got a data plan today, let me tell you I feel like a kid with a new toy. There's a ton of things that you can do without a plan, but it'll never be the same as having it.

    Downloaded the pinstack launcher and ESPN launcher. Everything else I had working without the data plan (bb plan, my other carrier has a edge based data plan). Now I'm just playing around with bbm.

    Awesome, now you can start posting via bb.. LOL.
    BBM is awesome, especially late at night when you're not on a computer...(I don't have internet at home... but why do I need it with my bb?)
