You had that with T-Mobile.
I did NOT have any data plan when I was with T-Mobile, yet I was able to connect via wire to my PC and download apps from the BB store.
I am not too interested in any more apps, but I am wanting to know if i need anything from BB in order to check my gmail via my phone network. Seems if I had a data plan from my carrier, I could do that. What would I need from BB?
