Why condemn anyone for not having blackberry data and make them think they made a bad choice in phone or think it's worthless without BB Data? It's not a bad choice and functions fine as a simple pda/phone. Grant you it will not perform to it's full potential but it is still a wonderful device and many things can be done with standard data. Shame on you guys!
Rjpa, you made a great choice on a wonderful device. Welcome to Blackberry Forums.
Yes. Well in my country (Denmark) there is only one carrier that have BIS and BES dataplans. But those are not intended nor available for private individuals. Well, maybe I did a mistake when I baught the 8820, but as you say: It's a lovely device, nice, clean and foremost "stable". Coming from a WM world full of bluescreens and reboots, this OS is clean and have a nice "touch" to it, it's simple yet powerful. The reception in the phone is fantastic.
Well, I have no BES or BIS dataplan available with my current carrier (Telia Sonera). But hope that someday they will pickup the world of blackberry. Here in this country this lovely device has been "ignored", the attention and focus have the last 6 months been entirely on Apple's iPhone.
Well enough about that. I've just wiped my handheld and upgraded the OS, and see if it can help me with better conn. through TCP or Wifi.
