1. Two plans only (add the prices to your phone plan). 3MB for $39 or Unlimited for $49. Right now they will knock off $10 from your phone bill if you get the unlimited, so I don't understand why anyone would even bother with the 3MB plan. This includes internet.

2. With 3rd party apps like Verichat. No IM function built in to the BB.

3. Good, not great nor as slow as other cell phone WAP browsers I've used.

Just something to add, the $39 and $49 plans dzervit mentioned are the base price for the BlackBerry plans purchased without a voice plan.

Add a voice plan, the prices are knocked down $5. Purchase an unlimited incoming voice plan, and the unlimited BlackBerry plan becomes $34.99.

AFAIK, these prices last until the end of March.
