Default Internet on 8220

So I am a user of AT&T, but I'm using an unlocked 8220 (I had an AT&T Tilt prior to this) and I had internet access on the Tilt, will I still have internet access on the Flip?

A Blackberry needs a dedicated Blackberry data plan. It's possible to get some TCP data access but you won't get all the BB features.

It's also advisable that you get the data plan to avoid any nasty overage charges you might incur, just so that your next bill won't be a shocker.

If it helps, i moved from the 3g to the flip, had to call in, change IMEI numbers on my account, data plan, and change the TCP access on the phone. But it works completely.
