    Dumb question...

    Do I have to go through my cell provider (TMOBILE) to use/get the BB service? OR can I get that service from someone else?

    You have to go through your Carrier since it goes through their cell network to the RIM network. It has to be associated with your account.

    20 extra a month... hard to justify for getting emails and stuff remotely.

    It may not be worth it to you. Then again the Blackberry may not be for you either. If you want Email and Intenet Access on a handheld device, your going to have to pay someone for it, and not just on a Blackberry. Usually data service is an extra add on for your Phone account. And TMO is the cheapest around for BlackBerry data.

    Remember TANSTAAFL.

    Sorry

    i love the pda functionality of my blackberry, so that's why i continue to buy them. as for all that remote stuff, its hard to find the need so that's why i'm lobbying my company to pick up the tab. that might pose a catch22 tho because then they get contact me whenever. lol

    They also get to limit what you can add, and where you can browse with an IT Policy. It is a catch-22 situation.
