Default 7130e + Verizon

Please Login to Remove!

I am totally new to bb. I have been reading a lot of articles on the web and off of this forum to better understand how all of the functions of the phones work. I am thinking about getting the new 7130e because my work gets a discount through verizon and i want something to be on the go. I am mainly concerned about how the internet part of the phone works, this is a seperate service you have to buy with verizon additional to your monthly minutes correct? How much is this usually?

If we have wireless network at work could i use that for free or at other places where WI-FI is available(starbucks)?

I know the 7130e is new, do they make phone holders for them yet?

If anyone can help explain to me more about how the wi-fi, EV-DO technology works and what it costs, it would be greatly appreciated.

The 7130e does not have Wi-Fi so using it for free at work, home or starbucks will not work. You will need to add a data plan to your account if you want to use the 7130e.
