"The map"? What map?

BlackBerry Maps needs data and so does Google Maps. Both require the BlackBerry Data plan.

Then that is BlackBerry Maps. It does not cost money. The app is free. The data it uses to download data (the maps) does cost money--as you will need to pay for a BlackBerry Data Plan.
Does that help?

what is the blackberry data plan?

You need an add on service in order to access the internet on your Blackberry. Call TMo and ask them to put on the Blackberry Unlimited plan on your account. It will cost you another $20/mo. Then you can use BBMaps and internet browser, email, etc.

That's correct. Not without a data plan on your account.
