    I really don't see how you could screw up your phone by using a program that was approved to be used by the BB. I also had a t109 or something like that, and I have seen and used the tmo basic mobile web service and believe me, the BB performs like a champ just the same with the data plan vs tmo web.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~common was the big deal a guy finds a way to save some money that's good for him! With the pearl coming out there is a lot of people who want just the phone and nothing else. As long as they pay for them I think is fine! Is their money

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i think tmo web is great the thing is that it works different on phone models and makes: my sister has the samsung t509 and my girl a nokia 6630. It takes twice the time to load a page on the t509. I've put them together.

    That's nice to know Americanista, if the speed is about the same, then I'm very interested in trying out the $5.99 web access thru Opera Mini.

    With the $20 TMO data plan I got a "EDGE" icon in the upper right corner of my 8100 display. This indicated a very good, high speed connection when expressed in capital letters ("EDGE" vs. "edge"). Do you get that icon using the $6 TMO web access plan?

    Also- did you ever get Google Maps working under OM?

    Just remember this stuff is working after you discontinued that data plan. I'm pretty sure if you resend your service books it'll pretty much die. That's just my guess. I don't think 20 bucks a month is too much to pay for a data plan. Also remember you lose all your OTA downloads. Just my couple of pennies.

    Understood, Reddog. I also heard someone mention you may not be able to resend service books at all, without a data plan. So this scenario remains to be confirmed.

    As for the $14 difference, it's not that big of a deal for one account, but starts to add up when you have multiple accounts (I manage 4, $14x4=$56) that just require simple web access.

    I also understand that for a student on a very limited budget, this $6 plan may be an attractive work-around instead of using a BB as "dumb" device for just phone calls and organizing.

    Re: Good bye Data Plan

    Ok so this is the update on what has happened since I posted about being able to have full web access via the Opera w/tzones. .. .

    Well come to find out that I wake up yesterday and my Opera would not connect, NP I do connection settings with Opera and nothing.. .. Do a few battery pulls and still nothing . ..

    I finnally call Tmo Customer service and I find out that their technical support team found this hole in their system and fixed it . ... mofo's . .. so now tzones will not work w/o a data plan. ..

    When I found out I was like /sigh sobs. ... Can you take that off my plan then. .. .

    So now I'm "F"ed.

    Hope this gives ya a heads up, keep the data plan since tzones "will not work" now.

    On the upside - You can call T-Mobile (be sure to speak to a PDA rep) and they can now add on a free feature that will still allow you to MMS, IM, browse basic T-Zones (the dl/myacct sections) and download stuff from T-Mobile.

    It just came out recently, not sure if they are just gonna add to all BB users that don't have a data plan, but still nice if you wanna be able to MMS w/o a data plan

    As others have said, what is a blackberry without a data plan? I mean the main base of blackberry's is e-mail and you aren't even using it? To each his own i guess.

    I think what we have to realize, and I am a new BB user, is that the Pearl and it's future counterparts are bringing a whole new type of user to BB. The days of corporate email only are gone. It's my opinion that they will have to find a way to make a cheaper plan for those people. I have the BIS and that works for me, I can afford it. To others who want a BB but don't want to pay $30 per month for data, if BB is going to continue to move into that sector, they will have to reach out with a better plan. That's just my opinion though.

    If I put a non-provisioned Cingular SIM in my Cingular Pearl I cannot even get a phone signal.
