Default Using Blackberry without BIS

Please Login to Remove!

does anyone have any expirence(horror stories) of using blackberry with Media Net unlimited instead of BIS. I bought 2 8300's off ebay and we are using them this way. I dont need all the features of BIS, but i dont want to get a huge bill next month because we were on the wrong plan. Has this happened to anyone on ATT?

Love This Forum and glad to Finally Be a Blackberry Family Member after toying with the Iphone (nice ipod)(junk as a phone)

thanks
Kenneth

Wirelessly posted (off to see the wizard)

In theory you should be okay

Many have used it in the manner you are. Technically you can be billed for it but have only seen that happen a few times

Also you internet service could stop at any time for no reason.... And you can't call to complain as you have the wrong plan anyway

Good luck

Enjoy your BB's
