Question about Blackberry internet plans
 
Hi, I'm new to blackberrys and just purchased a unlocked Bold 9000. I have tmobile and I have their 3g Edge, GPRS plan for my Samsung Vibrant. I did notice that tmobile has a specific internet plans for blackberrys. I signed a 2 year contract about 2 months ago when I got my samsung vibrant and now Im wondering if the internet plan that I got with the Samsung vibrant can be used with my blackberry without using their "BlackBerry Plans". I plan on keeping both phones and will be switching one for the other on days I choose.

Are the 3g EDGE GPRS internet plans for Android and other phones the same and usable for Blackberrys or do I have to actually call up T-Mobile and add their specific Blackberry plan

You have to get the blackberry specific plan.

what are the differences between the regular 3g GPRS EDGE service compared to the Blackberry Services ? Any way of getting it to work?

You must have a BB data plan to get RIM related services such as BBM, email, Facebook, BB browser, etc. There is no way around it. You can use Opera Mini with a generic data plan, which is what you appear to have, but that is a poor work around. Some get it to work, others do not.

From the FAQ: What do I need a Data Plan for? - BlackBerryFAQ

No way to use the native blackberry internet browser without a blackberry data plan. You may be able to use the hotspot/wifi browser on wifi, but it depends. Some can, others can't. You may also be able to use a third-party browser such as opera mini on your carrier's regular mobile data....see blackberryfaq.com regarding that possibility.

T-Mobile may allow you to change to the Blackberry. cost more but it may be possible.
you may have to extend your contract. worth a shot.
