Default BlackBerry data plan

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone! did some searching but couldn't find an answer to this...

I just got a BlackBerry torch off of Craigslist. I have a plan with AT&T that has unlimited data grandfathered from the days they used to offer it. Does the BB torch have a "special" data plan that will affect this in any way?
(For instance, 4G phones require a 4G data plan, etc)


Thanks

Yes. You need a data plan specific to BlackBerry devices.

So if I use my current data plan, will AT&T have to change it?

If your current data plan is not Blackberry specific, it will need to be changed.
