Default Data usage...? Please help!

Please Login to Remove!

I am the proud owner of a Blackberry 8100. I will admit I know almost nothing about phones/anything remotely tech, but I only have a simple question. Lol. I'm curious to know since I bought the phone from a friend (brand new) and just put my SIM card in (my previous phone was a motorola L2, quite the upgrade i might add) and started using it immediately. Will accessing certain features eat up the data I'm allotted from my previous plan? My carrier is AT&T and I have not switched to a package that will allow me to use the internet or email yet, so I'm just curious. I've tried accessing my data usage online, but because of whatever reason it won't pop up and I tried calling them to ask, but I was on hold for about 20 minutes. So I figured I'd try a different route. PLEASE help! I really don't want to eat up data I don't have.

Blackberry internet is needed to use most things. Depending on your current data plan, you may have access to the tcp. Then you could use opera for internet/mail
