Call customer service or check online to see what you just bought. Chances are - at least my bet is - you purchased the blackberry add on to a qualifying voice plan. If so, then you have the blackberry data plan, giving you the blackberry browser and BIS email, and you will also be able to run third party apps like opera mini, beyond411, etc, etc.
If you did not get the blackberry add on, the you bought the so-called "generic" data plan. And for the same price, apparently, you could have blackberry data as well as carrier data (but recognize the blackberry add on is an addition to the price of a voice plan).
