Do a search and scan the posts by Midnightdraven. She has been answering questions on UK services for a while, probably several times a day.



Here is the long story short: The blackberry is the hardware interface to the RIM network and services. To use the blackberry branded apps and features that utlize the blackberry network, you need to get a blackberry specific data plan.



You may be able to get some data capabilities with your existing data plan with a third-party browser. But not push email, blackberry messenger, RIM versions of IM apps, etc without the blackberry data plan.
