    Cost for Opera??

    Advertisement



    I have a read a lot of posts about Opera mini for the Blackberry pearl, but I had come across something saying that you get charged to use Opera because it isn't a browser provided by your phone company or something like that. I have AT&T with an unlimited data plan right now, but if I get Opera and use it, will I be charged for that?

    if you dont have unlimited data plan added to your bb account. Then yes you will get charged once all of your data is used.

    Opera mini uses the data feature of you phone, now if you have an unlimited data add on in your plan then no, you will not be charged. On the other side of the coin, if you don't have the data add on, then odds are you probably in most cases cant use the program, it'll tell you that it cant connect or cant find the net. In some rare cases people have been able to access the internet from their mobile devices, however this is NOT advised seeing as the charges for using it without the plan are extremely high, and people have been hit in the past for such use with really high bills.



    Saying yes or no to a question without explaining why is kind of silly. It's like
    giving a man a fish instead of teaching a man to fish

    im familiar with this metaphor and this is the wrong situation to use it for.

    if he had said that he wants to know how to install opera mini and someone came and just did it for him...then it works...

    I disagree, if we tell him the why for this he can in turn help other people that have this question when he is in a position to answer, and that's the reason pinstack is here, isnt it? to help people with their blackberries?
