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. http://nextelonline.nextel.com/en/so...ry/index.shtml
