    What does everybody use their data plans for?

    So I wanted to try out the data package for a few months to see if it was worth it long term. I have opera mini on there but have to say the majority of websites are a pain to navigate on the Pearl. I also haven't been able to find any decent IM programs so I can talk to my AIM and MSN buddies. What else does everybody else use their data plans for? It just might not be for me yet until I need my email on the go.

    AIM and I'm on my browser 24/7. Most of the time I'm on Pinstack. Yeah I forgot to mention email.

    Yeah, I frequent a lot of forums but they seem to be a pain to use. Maybe if I got used to it...

    App on your BB that launches you straight to Pinstack.com.
    T-Mobile HTC Touch Pro2 & I'm not coming back! :D

    I have a use for the Data plan that most likely overshadows all others: using my BB as a tethered modem for laptops/ PCs.

    Yes I sometimes go thru the bookmarks but the app I'm referring to us much easier. All I have to do is click on the shortcut icon on my home screen, login and I'm here.

    I also forgot this one:


    PinStack IRC BB Chat Launcher. If you've ever used IRC then this app might be easy to should.

    The matter hinges on how well you have arranged your bookmarks -- if it takes forever to find one a launcher is indeed useful.

    I think I'm OK on that count.
