Thanks for your replies. I got it to work. I completely wiped the phone and installed fresh with 5.0. Its not perfect, but it works 95% of the time. I dont NEED a blackberry data plan, I installed service books with the anworm service book, and I got push email with shangmail. Now if I could only get the service books to be able to use messengers (MSN, Yahoo, Google Talk, etc).
Once again, thank for the replies.
