    all blackberry's require data plan for internet not the standard 5.99$ for normal phones.

    you can use ur unlocked cing with tmobiles 19$ data plan for full internet data access.

    so if i purchase the 19.99$ blackberry unlimated with the web browsing function, it'll be okay with the cingular phone even if i use tmobile right? do i have to update it with a tmobile firmware or anything like that?

    all you have to do is make sure the phone is unlocked.

    I used (and now my hubby is using) an att 8300 unlocked on t-mobile. You can use any provider's bb os on the device that you want.

    I have an unlocked cingy 8800 that I purchased on Ebay. I put my TMO SIM in, and works fine. Internet and all. Been using it for 9 months trouble free.

    Try this

    options
    advanced options
    sim card

    once in sim card press mepd (you wont see anything on the screen when you press this). If entered correctly you should see personalization with sim, network, network subset etc... listed. If they all say disabled then your phone is unlocked.
