I'm so confused! Sprint BB dataplan - help me understand, pls?

I have just become very confused with my the data plan stuff and Sprint. Do I need to have a BB data plan or would a regular Sprint data plan work on my BB 8830? When I ordered the phones online it never required me to obtain BB plan. I was an existing Sprint customer when I order the phone, and I had a Power Vision plan, which I then upgraded once I received the 8830s. It won't kick in till the new billing cycle begins on Aug 11th. Will this new data plan (the $15 one, with unlimited wed and data, plus unlimited text) not work with my BB? I will not be traveling overseas for now, so I don't need int'l mins or roaming. But I do need email and web.

Many thanks in advance!

ISMPlus, you must have the BlackBerry Data Plan in order to get email, complete internet and data on your BlackBerry. The Data Plan will not include SMS.

Wow! Thanks for your response JSanders. I don't know why the Sprint website didn't prompt me to order this service. Maybe b/c it was a phone upgrade? I've been here waiting for the new plan with regular unlimited internet and data to kick in so I can have my browser and email set, not knowing that I needed THE BB data plan :? . Thanks to this site... now I know!!:-o
