    So along these same lines, say you cancel your blackberry data plan, and you use APN/TCP for opera, and some other 3rd party apps like nobex, You should be able to buy the 10$ internet service (like we got our kids) and you will be able to use them? I mean use some of the 3rd party apps without the BB data?

    More specifically would google maps work? I was able to download google maps on one of my daughters pantech duo, s so i know it work using apn only, but will the black berry version be able to connect..

    And as you know you dont have to have the gps for funtionaliy, rather just for precison.

    Why YOU ASK ?

    Well I am thinking about sending my daughter a blackberry but I refuse to pay for the BB Data plan for her, and i dont think she can afford it.
    It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.

    Please forgive me if I'm way off base,or say this wrong.

    As you know I'm not real experenced an all.But even if it would technically work,wouldn't it be a legal problem for the cell service provider.Doesn't blackberry(rim)own exclusive rights to blackberry internet service in reguards to any other cell service as a package agreement for providing them with the rights to stock blackberry products?

    well obviously rim will have rights to how BIS is distributed to blackberry users, and im sure they have agreements with carriers re that... but your blackberry has the "tcp/ip" settings so that you can enter your carrier's apn settings for various reasons... among them is to access your carrier's local wap settings... also to be able to use your blackberry as a tethered modem... hope that explanation makes some sense...

    Yes, thank you.Due to my cell service providers requirement for a bb data plan when buying a blackberry,I made a wrong assumption.Thanks again and I'll try to either learn faster(lol) or at least not to "assume" quite sooo much.Thanks for the info and once again for your patience.

    I always wonder how or will using BIS/BES or APN to connect will affect international data roaming. I am on USA TMobile, and when I travel overseas I will add the Unlimited Blackberry International Email addon to my plan. Never got charged for using any data including emails and web surfing. Recently, subscribers of TMobile reported that they got charged for international data even if they have the Unlimited International Blackberry Email addon. I mean, they use data besides BB emails.

    Just last month, in July, I traveled to Hong Kong. I used a ton of data including emails, surfing, Google Map, Facebook, MSN. You name it. All these data appear to show up on my bill already, but -- no roaming charge.

    One thing I did is that I cleared my APN setting to make sure that all data goes through BIS. Does it make the difference? I don't know.
