    i was considering getting that unlimited data package for the blackberry but i was curious as to how the internet actually looks on the phone? does it look like it does on every other cell phone or does it like like the semi-real internet?

    Re: internet

    it's not like the internet on a pc obviously, but it's not the crappy version you may see on a basic cell phone either. soon enough it will be more like what you see on the iPhone commercials where it's more like the real internet.

    it's mobile, and sometimes a little tedious to navigate or load times, but if you want internet and all the capabilities a blackberry has to offer you might as well get it!! otherwise you just have a cell phone with the blackberry logo on it.

    If you are used to DSL or Cable Modem speeds, no, the EDGE network is not fast. But you can't watch streaming video on the phone, anyway, so you really don't notice it too much.

    If you are using it to check MySpace, or ebay, sometimes its frustrating cramming all that stuff into a mobile phone's screen.

    If you are checking forums like Pinstack, it actually works extremely well.

    Re: internet

    It's nothing like broadband, but it works well. Especially for WAP/mobile sites. Most site have mobile sites nowdays. If you're trying to load a fully html page it may take a while and then it might be all jumbled depending on the page.

    Most of the time you won't be surfing. You'll be using Google Maps, and all sorts of third party applications that use the internet instead. Or you can just use the pinstack loader to surf on here from your phone.

    BTW I reccommend Opera Mini when you get the data plan. Its the most realistic you will get to a computer internet look, feel, and use.

    Some sites are almost identical while others aren't. You also can't view net video.

    correct...that takes firefox or IE and the BB has neither also some sites give you the option of viewing them in cell-phone mode for easier loading

    you can also play around with the configuration of the Blackberry browser to see what works best for you.
