    Just got the pearl for cingular...some noob questions

    Advertisement



    So I just got the Pearl and I'm quite new with the phone scene. Anyways I'm wondering if e-mails sent to my phone are charged as a SMS Text or is it free? And for the seperate blackberry feature plan (EDGE) that i paid for, does that replace my existing phone plan rate or does it add on to the original rate? Thanks.

    Also everytime i use the maps, am i getting charged? thanks.


    *UPDATE*
    So if i buy the blackberry unlimited plan, do i also get unlimited SMS text messages or do i have to buy a seperate plan for texting? thanks.

    The maps and emails use a different system than texts. If you have an unlimited data plan it comes with unlimited emails/internet use (which the maps feature uses)

    okay.. yea so as long as you purchased the Unlimited Data Plan for cingular or Tmo, the maps feature is unlimited along with BBmessenger, email, internet use, and programs that use the internet such as BB411.

    As what they said above with the exception of the Text Messages, I got the unlimted BB plan with 1000 text messages with unlimited M2M (Cingular/At&t) texts. Which I think is like $10 More a month! Best bet is to call Cingular and just ask them, I always find them very helpful and courteous with those type of questions!

    Txt msging is a separate feature/fee on Cingular. I've always found their phones reps to competent, courteous & helpful, one of the reasons I've been with them since y2k.
