Default Blackberry Required Email

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, so, im deffinetly a new new NEW blackberry user. I have been looking at the blackberry storm for over 2 months now and im soo happy it finally came out. Ive litterally googled "blackberry storm news" atleast twice a day to find out whats going on with it. and now, its finally here, so heres my story.

this morning, i go onto vzw.com and login, go for my upgrade, new every two blah blah, found out the price for me would be 150 and clicked next, then it showed me the screen where u pick your options, i clicked my txting plan, and then it says im required to pay a blackberry email plan? since i dont plan on emailing much, probably never, can someone elaborate for me what this means? it might not seem like much but an extra 30 dollars a month matters to me. Also, if i am forced to get this blackberry email and web for $30 a month, does that include simple web browsing or is it strictly email? and is it unlimited?

there is also the blackberry solution unlimited data usage which is 55 and, can you explain to me everything that contains?

again, im new to blackberry so, when explaining please use terms that you think i could understand, thanks in advance.

You MUST get at least the $30 BlackBerry Data Plan when you actviate a BlackBerry on Verizon's network.
It's "unlimited" email, web browsing and any other data feature on the BlackBerry.
Verizon will automatically add the plan for you, and bill you for it, even if you don't want it.

The more expensive data plan is required for Enterprise environments for actviating on a corporate BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830)

This is simple with vzw. No data plan No Storm. I would also recommend the extra $5 per month for insurance.
