    Welcome to pinstack. I cant answer directly as I have a different carrier, however since the phone has roaming capabilities maybe you can roam in Africa.

    Someone else should answer shortly.

    Im pretty sure what they mean is that the data plans for blackberrys are available through RIM only. What this means is that even though your carrier is AT&T or Vodaphone - whatever - the data plan that you get from them is actually provided by RIM. So, if RIM doesn't have any agreements with an African carrier then you probably won't be able to access data. I'm not sure if a "regular" data plan will work on a BB.

    Would ATT charge extra for this? I remember a friend had a bb in Mexico and it was free to surf the web and get emails

    The International Data plan does cost 10 more (will double check) than the normal data plan, but there is no extra cost beyond that.
