Default Re: Default I-net browser withoutdata plan ...

Then you have a data plan -- a generic mobile data plan -- but not a BlackBerry data plan.

You are able to use opera mini because it uses the carrier apn and doesn't require (or use) the RIM BlackBerry services. Likewise, you will be able to use any other apps that similarly are not integrated with the BlackBerry data service.

BlackBerrys are different. A BlackBerry smartphone is intended to be used with BlackBerry data services. The BlackBerry handset is the hardware interface.

In my experience the BlackBerry data plan is the same cost as the generic mobile data plan, all things being equal. And the BlackBerry data plan is instead of, not in addition.

I can understand your frustration, but next time do a little research and ask the necessary questions up front before you buy.
