I have to pitch this question out. Is there any way on the Nextel 7520 to have internet access without paying the ridiculous fee each month? A provider that will let an individual user check email and rum GPS applications. It just doesn’t seem right to pay the escalated fees to have a Blackberry.

I'd love data services and hosted BES/MDS for free too, but it's unrealistic.

If your carrier's data fees are too high then you might want to check out other carriers.

Another option would be to purchase a different device. I'm not sure with Nextel, but most carriers offer gprs for cell phones for less than adding on Blackberry services. Of course, you don't get the same features, but we're back to having to pay for what you want or need...

why would someone expect to be able to use data services and not have to pay for them? why would people even ask that?

ugh...can i get a cell phone for free and not pay for any voice services and make unlimited phone calls all day long? NO!

why would you even think that is possible?

How funny is that line?

It just doesn't seem right to me to have to pay for fuel for my motorcycle. I mean, c'mon... I paid for the bike... now I have to pay for gas too?

And while we're on the topic, I don't want to pay an increased insurance premium for my speeding tickets. After all, it didn't cost them anything.
