    Newbie ?

    Advertisement



    I am very interested in purchasing a pearl, the salesman said I would not be able to send text messages if I didn't purchase a data plan. Is that true or is he trying to sell me more than I need. I plan on getting a data plan in the future. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    You can still send SMS. MMS depends on your carrier.

    You can send and receive them. If you don't already have a text messaging plan, you will be charged a per message fee. Different rate for different carriers. I would suggest adding a messaging plan, if you haven't done so already.

    if youre with at@t, I believe you'll have to add a text msg'g plan to your voice plan. also, the bb data plans do not automatically include text msg'g, but you can get it for an added cost.

    With regards to SMS messages, BB devices are no different than any other phone. Its dependent on your wireless carrier and what they offer on the voice plans. If there is a messaging bundle included or added at little additional cost, blah, blah, blah.

    MMS messages require data. Depending on your carrier this can be worked around. AT&T does not offer any way to use MMS without a Blackberry Data Plan. T-Mo offers a "Blackberry Enabler" option that allows MMS to be used without requiring a data plan.

    Thanks a whole lot guys really appreciate all the help. I look forward to gettting my pearl. I won't be able to get the full upgrade price for another two weeks so I gotta wait. I tried talking to customer service at TMO about cutting me some slack and just giving me the upgrade price now and the wouldn't budge so I gotta wait. Thanks again for all the help.
