Default BB9000 without BB servers?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys

I don't yet own a blackberry, however are considering the 9000. The phone has everything I want, however after researching a bit about it, I have found a thing called "Blackberry servers". I don't really want to sign up for them, so what limitations etc will be put on the phone? So what app's and features on the phone won't work without them?

Internet via native browser, push email; facebook, twitter, google maps, blackberry maps, any app created by RIM, and some others will not work.

You've basically got a nice qwerty keyboard phone with calling and texting, if you don't get a blackberry data plan [which gives you access to blackberry servers to get all the other features].

Midnight was very thorough. In my opinion, after texting and voice, you in essence have an interesting paper weight.
