Post Flash and BB

Please Login to Remove!

I just recently joined the blackberry wagon, so far I think this is one of the best phones I've ever had. But I have a question, I'm consider signing up for the internet service on my BB, but does anybody know if you can view flash content on the BB browser? and if so... what version of adobe flash player????
Thanks,

Welcome to the forums!

Flash is not supported on the BlackBerry at all.

Thanks,
No, you cannot view flash or any other streaming audio or video. The browser on the Pearl is a very small program and it can't handle flash and other types of plug ins.

In time maybe, but for now, no.

But consider using the video player. It is awsome.

Thanks for everything guys, well this is a serious set back as I'm a web designer who especializes in Flash applications. But if I get a data plan, or whatever, if I go out of the country, Do I have to pay long distance to receive my emails? Or browse the web? Currently signed in U.S. t-mobile.

I believe it is an additional pro-rated 20 dollars per month to receive emails internationally (on top of the first 20 for the data package). However, I don't think you can access the web.

You don't pay extra per month other than the $19.99 for blackberry service for international data, but all data transferred while roaming internationally is $15/meg.
