    Welcome to the Stacks uhbreysiv
    Don't worry about the flames here
    Your BB will basically just be an organizer phone without a data plan.
    You will be missing out on a world of cool things to do with it without a plan. Browser, the push email
    you said you don't need, games, etc.
    TMO has very reasonable data plans. I'd say it would be well worth it to get a data plan. Read through the forums to see all of the things you can do with your new Pearl.

    Welcome to the Stacks Hubreysiv. As Lava said, a data plan is the way to go to get the most out of your BB.

    If i am not mistaken you wont be able to use your tmobile web plan on your bb, you need to have a data plan in order to use the browser someone back this up?

    Backed up for ya! You must have the BB data plan to browse.

    Edit: Trust me, it's well worth it. Themes/ Email/ Games/ PINSTACK! ect....

    I have come across this so many times & it is a bug bear of mine.

    In theory T mobile COULD probably give you T mobile web by sending you the service book for it but they WON'T unless you get a data plan. Your Blackberry is totally capable of running it.

    Imagine what uproar there would be if they refused to give Nokia/Sony ericcson customers T mobile web.

    Data!

    Um, just kidding. Full internet browsing (almost), and the ability to set up many email accounts.

    PUSH email, MMS messaging, instant messaging, PIN messaging, internet acess with a limit to how much you can use. I think T mobile's limit is very generous but am not exactly sure how many mb you will get ( I am in the UK).

    To be honest it is best to use your Blackberry as a Blackberry should be used otherwise its just like any old phone.

    Make sure you drop the Tzones access too, that will make the 20 dollar plan that much cheaper for you.

    Another great feature of the t-mo dataplan if you have a laptop is that you can use your phone as a modem at no extra charge, t-mo will even help you set it up!
