Yes, you need a Blackberry Data Plan. You will get no browser without it. You won't be able to have push email either. That being said, it's possible that you can install Opera Mini Browser and be able to access the internet with that and your "data max" plan. You'll need the carrier APN/TCP settings for Cingular in order to make it work. you can find them at Main Page - BlackBerryFAQ
