I've read here on the forum over time of people getting some data functionality with whatever regular phone data plan from t-mobile. I just can't point you directly to good threads on that. But, as noted in the faq, you will not be able to use the blackberry-branded apps without the blackberry data plan, with is the $19.99 blackberry unlimited add on (TMO USA).

My point was that you cannot obtain a data plan of any sort from a third-party provider and run it on your blackberry. Whatever the data plan, it will be purchased from your carrier.
