Regular plan for the phone and DC and then you will Need the Data Plan to get email and certain other things. However you can use the i860 SIM in that BB. My son had an i860 and when I got him the 7520, Nextel just put his SIM in the BB.

have to have the data plan my friends no way around it. If you dont put it on they will add it for you and they wont put the expensive one on they will give you the 3mb one and charge you for the overages this has been discussed many many times in this forums about high bills

The sim card will work in the bb and you can use the bb as a phone, no data. If you call and ask, they will put you on a BB plan for data. If I remember correctly, the BB data plan with Nextel is either $45 or $50 per month for unlimited.

Nextel will require the Data Plan wether or not you tell them you have a BB. Nextel is iDen Network and the way the phones register in the network, they receive the IMEI number back, with this number they call tell what type of phone you have. Thats why so many people have gotten caught. Some get away with it for a while and some get caught right away. This info I got from the Nextel Repair Tech I take my BB to.

So save yourself some trouble, and get the Unlimited Data Plan. Here is the link to the BlackBerry section where you can see the different plans and options.

Dawg,
You need both insurance plans. The $2.99 plan is just for repairs. The other plan is $3.99 (I think) is for replacement in case it's unrepairable, lost or stolen. Also check with Nextel because you can get a discount depending on your employer.
