I read the Genric Data FAQ and still have some questions. Here is my situation.
I am with Suncom. I currently pay to have unlimited Call/text/dataLink
So i pretty much have everythign they have to offer.

I want a BlackBerry. Do i have to get a BB plan? or can i use the Suncom one. Apprently if i use the suncom one. I can pretty much still do everythign right? but i read somethign about.

if i take a pic with the camera i cant send it via MMS if i dont have a BB plan?

is this correct

you should be able to send the MMS just fine, but you will not be able to send/receive push email and many applications wont work without the BIS connection

Welcome to the forums! Does Suncom offer a BlackBerry data plan?
