Question Internet possible?

Please Login to Remove!

I have absolutely NO data plan whatsoever. I can't use bluetooth, no internet, and MMS. However, I was reading into this and was wondering if using that method, I could get Internet on my phone. From what I've learned, BIS/BES is where you get your Internet service from, and this says you don't need it.

Using the 'anworm' method it's possible to use the native blackberry browser without having a data plan with blackberry - BIS or BES. However, you will still need some kind of data plan with your network provider, whether this is 'pay as you go' or a contract with inclusive data etc. And it's no good for using bb push email etc.
