    Question Curve TMobile - wifi needed?

    Advertisement



    Hello, I am about to purchase a BB 8830 Curve and TMobile service. My primary use will be for email and occasional links to news and sports headlines. Is there any reason why I should purchase the "HotSpot" service ($19.99/mo.) if I will already have the unlimited email and web BB service, along with my voice phone plan (total of $59.99/mo.)

    I have been a Verizon phone customer, but want to move to Blackberry, and research seems to indicate that T-Mobile has the best rates, and the Curve is the best option for me.

    All your suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

    Hello marsha,

    If your getting a curve with TMO the the model will be the 8320. Unless you were going with the 8800 series then they are totally different from the curves.

    To answer your question about the hotspots you do not need to pay for the extra plan if you have unlimited data.

    Which hotspots are you speaking of? The hotspots at home(H@H)? Or the hotspots wifi?

    With the H@H its just that you can make calls over wifi and it won't count against your minutes. The other plan is with wifi hotspots and getting data.

    I'm not sure which you speaking of. Hopefully this answers some of your questions.

    Thanks, Reddog. Yes, I meant the Curve 8320. I was asking about the "HotSpot@Home" If the only advantage is the ability to make more phone calls, then I would pass on that. With the Blackberry service I'll be able to get email anywhere, right? And will I be able to browse my bookmarked websites?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Yeah you're correct. As long as you're in an area where you have data coverage you email will get pushed to you and surf the net.

    The H@H is mainly for people who talk a lot or get bad reception in certain areas.
