Hi I have a few questions, which may sound pretty dumb but hey...

I am really loving the Blackberry 8900 I'm hoping to buy it next week, I will have to buy a sim free or t mobile version because I am on an 18month contract with t-mobile, I pay 30.00 for 700 mins and unlimited texts, I was reading about having to have a Blackberry internet account? Whats that about?

Moreover, if I asked t-mobile for unlimited web+walk to be added to my priceplan would that cover everything I need?, meaning would that allow me to use the e-mail, internet and various other apps blackberry offers or is there something else I would need?
My friend has the Nokia E71 and just needs internet on their priceplan to use all of its functions but I read something about blackberry email and internet, do I need this or could I jus have t-mobile's web and walk internet?
Please explain what I would need in order to use all of the blackberry's apps and functions if buying a sim-free handset!

Thank you!

you need to ask t-mobile to add the blackberry data plan to your contract.
It will cost another 5 per month.
web and walk will cover the internet usage, but not sure if its NEEDED with a BB data plan, as i'm on flext with free unlimited internet anyway.

But to use email and apps, you need a BB data plan.

Also this would be true if you were buying a t-mobile branded handset, not just a sim-free one.
