Thumbs up Wireless Connection Help!

Please Login to Remove!

Ok so here's the story. I have a sprint phone and my dad had a cingular blackberry, or should i say one that if for cingular. but i only have one question. is there any way i can connect to a wireless network and recieve e-mails on my pearl or do i have to get it activated with cingular??? someone please help. becase this is a great device but i really dont need another phone. just a PDA i guess. i already have a sprint but i have the LG pm325 and it is very limited as far as what you can do. and now even sprint is blocking some of their previous features. someone please help me on this.

You have to get a blackberry data plan from cingular and then it will work. with out a data plan its just a PDA with no web access or email... you can get a blackberry data plan without getting the phone line included. I think Cingulars unlimited data plan is $29.99
