i still have couple questions. What im trying to understand is softwares like Opera Mini & AIM+ichat DO NOT need a data plan to work? And for web broswer, google maps, and GMAIL, those will only work with a data plan. Is that correct?

finally, where can i get a generic data plan that works in the U.S.? The example they used in the faqs was a Canadian provider.

basically my goal is to get these softwares up and running:
.Web browsing
.google maps

They DO need data. The FAQ is on a Generic data plan (meaning not a Blackberry Data Plan). You must have some sort of plan that supports data and accessing the internet to you any of those applications. The regular data plans are cheaper the the Blackberry Data Plans.

Does that make sense?
