Nope, BlackBerry's require a BlackBerry Data Plan for anything data related ie web, email, IM etc. without a BlackBerry Data Plan all you have is voice and SMS, end of story and there's no workaround to this.

What will end up happening is you will be charged for usage. Even though you do not have a data plan the BB will regester to the network and you will be charged. But dont take my word for it just look at your next bill

I was doing the same on tmobile's $5.99 net plan for a while. But found it slow and limiting, much happier on BB plan.

according to some of the threads around here and other forums, tmobile will be cutting off access to certain third party apps like opera mini if you're using a regular tmo internet plan. if thats the case and they plan to implement this and you're on tmo, then you should probably be lookin into a blackberry data plan.

Wow, all that for just a simple question?

You can use your BB with just a data plan...
