Default mms on tmobile and no need for blackberry plan anymore!! save $$$

Please Login to Remove!

just got off the phone with tmobile and they now how a FREE plan as long as you have a text messaging plan that allows you to send mms. by doing so you no longer need to add the blackberry plan for 20 bux a month in order to send an mms..thought id share the good news and save you guys $20 for those that don't use the email functions of the phone.sorry if this is a repost.you would need to call cc to have ur old bb plan taken off and this new enabler turned on

the is called: BlackBerry Feature Enabler (Free)

This no cost feature allows customers with certain Blackberry devices who are not signed up for BlackBerry service to enjoy phone features such as Picture Messaging, Instant Messaging and t-zones.

cingular users are not alone as i think cingular has the same feature now!

I just called and a sales rep told me that the only thing it enables is mms. Instant Messenger will not work unless you have the bb unlimited for 20 bucks

if you enable it, and use $5.99 tmobileweb plan, you can use jivetalk and opera mini

just have to make sure the apn setting is set to wap.voicestream.com

the OZ messenger does indeed work with the freebie plan though. my friend has tested this already.

What does this BlackBerry Feature Enabler (Free) actually give us?
And if I want free instant message, I still have to order the 14.99 unlimited texting?

IF I get this FREE plan, and still want to use instant message, I still have to pay for 5.99 t-zone and 14.99 unlimited text messaging right?

BlackBerry Feature Enabler
This no cost feature allows customers with certain Blackberry devices who are not signed up for BlackBerry service to enjoy phone features such as Picture Messaging, Instant Messaging and t-zones.

Yeah, I think unlimited text messaging is required for instant messaging. If I'm wrong, someone please let me know.

If I get this, and install Oprea Mini... will I still be able to surf the web? and Check Email through Oprea Mini?
