Default Internet and email without BIS/BES on 8330 (Sprint)

Please Login to Remove!

I recently purchased an 8330 and my sprint everything plan. I do not want to pay an additional $30/month for the blackberry service plan since I already have unlimited internet on my sprin plan.

How can I use the internet or email without the Blackberry service plans?

I have DLed Opera Mini but it cannot connect. What are the steps to getting internet and email without having to pay extra for the service?

Thank you very much in advance.

you cannot get email without the bb services. no work around, you just cant get it.

you may be able to get internet if you have wi-fi. i dont know if your model does.

The 8330 doesn't have WiFi.

To the OP, you need a BlackBerry Data Plan for what you are asking.

Do you have the everything Messaging plan? It doesn't cost much more to upgrade to everything data/messaging.
Otherwise no Email or Internet on your device.

Which Everything plan do you have? Sprint has Everything plans that include BIS.
