    What can you do with data plan?

    Advertisement



    Ok, so pearl is my first smartphone ever. But it doesn't have a data plan of course. So now i want to get one and i have to talk to my dad. But i want to know what i rly can do with the data plan. I don't control a company or any think, im just a normal teen that likes fancy ****. The point is that i want to tell my dad what i can do with the data plan and what benefits it would bring me like in school and things like that (kinda like messing with my dads mind lol)

    Well if you get the data plan for the pearl it costs him less money in the long run because he won't have to pay for all of the extra data you will use. As far as how it helps you in school I guess if you have a data plan you could go on your school's website and check things you might need to check. I mean i think basically you should tell him that it just costs him less money.

    ^^LOL I don't think that is gonna convince his Dad brooke....!
    Let Dad know that overall, with the data plan he will save money as (depending
    what plan you go for) it is an unlimited plan
    that includes all of your web browsing, messaging, etc.
    If you didn't have the data plan you would be more likely to go over the basic charges and be
    charged per usage which would be very costly.
    Also let him know the BB is not fully functional without a data plan and is basically just a phone.
    Let him know all of the useful features and apps you can download for free and how none of them
    will affect your school work

    He may not get the data plan for you now when he sees the bill for that^^!!

    No...actually that might be a good way to convince him that the data plan will save money as
    it allows unlimited data not pay per use.
    Logical reasoning....it just might work.

    Is it gonna be like 120$? Holy ****, but this is bullshit coz i added unlimited msg's to my plan and it includes IM but it doesn't say that i uses data (When you open the window to check the details)

    No. 1 kb = 1cent. In your case 1.2 mb is 120 KB, which is only $1.20

    1.2mb=1200 kb if im not wrong coz there is 1k mb in one gb so it would make 1mb 1k kb. So it would be 120$ as lavagirl said that the bill will hurt.

    Sorry but I don't understand how you are getting pay per use on a BlackBerry. If that works then I don't see why a cheaper data plan wouldn't buy they always say only BlackBerry plans.

    And if you get a data plan once you have signal on your phone the net is there in your hand.
    I use mine for personal and get through between 120mb and 150mb a month. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Are you sure you don't already have a data plan? I wasn't aware that you could activate a BB without one. Maybe that's just with VZW.

    Re: What can you do with data plan?

    I'm a bit confused... I was never able to access my data until I signed up for a data plan... Maybe this is just in Canada...

    For your dad's sake I really hope you live in the US... Canadian data plans are not cheap... and you really have to pay close attention to your data use after you receive your first bill.

    Good luck with Dad... stay in school... lol.
