    Is BB Map a data service?

    Advertisement



    Hey guys,

    I recently got the Pearl and was curious to know if BB Maps is a data service. I didn't order a data plan for my phone, and I'm wondering if I'll be hit with a big bill.

    Blackberry maps does use data, so if you dont have a data plan it could get kind of expensive.
    I highly suggest a data plan so you can use the pearl to its full potential, but im sure there is a reason you dont have one.

    dgmorr, I also highly recommend a data service if you'd like to use some really neat programs like BB Maps, Google Maps or Berry411 as I understand Rogers hits you pretty hard without a data plan.

    I'm in the same boat as dgmorr, can't afford a data plan with Rogers. The only difference is that I asked the maps data usage question after I used it for 15-20 minutes . Can't wait for the bill!

    t-mo data plan unlimited is well worth it if you use the net and maps not to mention the lovely tinytube.net

    That's not an option for these people though because they are in Canada if im not mistaken and there is no T-Mobile up there.
    The T-Mobile(US) BIS price is most likely the lowest price BIS plan anywhere in the world. *Sigh* I love America, oh... except for George Bush.
