First off please ignore my typos, I got a new keyboard and its awful, hopefully replacing tonight
My existing cell phone is barely working so my husband is getting his secretary's Blackberry Pearl 8100c for like 20.00, its just to hold me over till I upgrade in October.
I understand i cannot use the internet or other data useage features without a data plan, and I'm OK with that but may add it later on.
But what about standard text messaging? Currently I pay per use on my phone (10 cents each I think, I only use maybe 50 cents a month), can I do the same with the blackberry or will it cost an arm and a leg? If it will can I disable text messaging entirely so I don't recieve any?
Also, What other feaures CAN I use? Calendar, to-do list, etc? What features are totally off limits w/o a data plan?
Can I disable anything that might accidently get me charged data useage so I don't get a nasty surprise?
My carrier is AT&T/cingular, I believe the phone is unlocked. The plan would be 30.00 a month, not sure I want to do that... maybe 10.00, but not 30.00!
What I am mostly after with this phone is the internal PDA features and bluetooth capability... oh and a phone that actually works, lol.
I did look in the FAQs but I got a bit lost so I thought I would ask.
