I could get an unlimited plan if I wanted to, but I don´t think it´s worth. Ok, let me be a little more detailed:

, (highlighted in red and green) you'll see that at least in Canada, is just about the same deal. We´ve got also two kinds of data plan, with two different prices. The Blackberry data plan
= 0,029 R$/KB (not to mention the unlimited) The NON-blackberry data plan
= 0,00025 R$/KB (
On the brazilian bb forum, they´ve said that Opera mini don´t work with the BB data, and they have to do that APN thing if they want to use it. Well, a bunch of those guys complain because even though they´ve got the unlimited plan they are being charged extra for the non-BB data whener they use third party apps (like Opera Mini). If l had the unlimited version, l'd be complaining too, but since l don't, l'm thinking this would be a great deal for me, since the non-BB is so much cheaper!
On that link l mentioned, it doesn't say anything about keeeping both of them (the bb and the non-bb data plan). lt says that to switch to standard data plan you just have to do the APN thing, and once you do, You´ll be on non-BB data plans. As it says:
Q: Do I need to modify my BlackBerry?
A: Other than configuring the APN setting, there is no other modifications needed(...)
Can I get email without a BlackBerry plan?
A: You won't get BlackBerry-branded push email and the BlackBerry-branded web browser won't work, so you will need to install third party software. One email application that works on the BlackBerry without a BlackBerry plan, is GMAIL Mobile. Unfortunately it won't alert you (no vibration alert upon receiving email), but it's fine for casual email checking, ala iPhone/etc.
OK. To end this up, I´ve done the APN thing. I still get my mail sent to my phone, and still get my Opera mini working (wich wouldn´t with only the BB plan) . This is a possibility that´s not been mentioned on the FAQ. I think it´s because they were not considering that in Brazil exists a BB plan that´s not unlimited acess. Does this means I´m with both plans?! Whenever l use Opera mini, l´ll be charged for the cheap one right???? Or will they treat everything (BB Mail and Opera) as just one pack, and wich one?? Just wanted to know, so I would stop going online!! Has anyone heard of a similar situation?!
