Question Question about using an AT&T go phone sim card...

Please Login to Remove!

Well, this past Wednesday I went to a phone refurbishing shop in my city and got a Blackberry 8700g. I use an AT&T GoPhone sim card. If I buy the 100mb data feature, will this enable the Blackberry Internet?

Btw, i'm new to the whole Blackberry brand, so please be as simplifed with terminology as possible, please?

No, you need a blackberry data plan.

It does give you web access... Old Facebook will work. Web browser. Apps that can be routed around BIS/BES, like some of the Google apps...
