Default Newbie BB ?s

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry for the stupid ?s but nobody i know has a BB

I want to get a BB 7130e with verizon but i would like to know a few things before i do so. I am trying to familarize myself with the technology.

1) If i get the phone do i have to get one of the blackberry national access plans or can you pay by your usage, by the KB/MB or per minute?? I could not find anything on verizon website once i selected the plans. I really will not be using the internet too much but if i need it i would like to use it.

2)Is the blackberry email that is included (yourname@blackberry.net) will this work without the blackberry data plan or do you have to have it or does it work similar to how text messaging work(how it is a service with the phone) Would this be unlimited if it is included? I would like to be able to forward emails to my phone or send them from my phone without the data plan(if possible)


Any answers are greatly appreciated. Sorry if i have stupid ?s.. I am a newbie. I learn fast tho!

You have a choice of the bundled plans with Verizon:

Core Choice
450 minutes, Unlimited IN, Unlimited nights and weekends and Unlimited Data Usage* $79.99 $0.45 per Minute After Allowance

Extra Choice
1350 minutes, Unlimited IN, Unlimited nights and weekends and Unlimited Data Usage* $109.99 $0.35 per Minute After Allowance

Max Choice
4000 minutes, Unlimited IN, Unlimited nights and weekends and Unlimited Data Usage* $169.99 $0.25 per Minute After Allowance

or pick another plan and choose one of these:

BlackBerry
10MB of Data Usage $24.99/month
Unlimited Data Usage $44.99/month

I don't think you get the @blackberry e-mail account unless you have a blackberry data plan and the number of e-mails is unlimited but if you have the 10MB plan you pay for any data you download over that amount including e-mails.

a friend of mine says he has the data plan and doesnt have to pay a monthly fee, he just pays if he uses it, i forget if its per KB/MB or by the minute. Anyone else heard of this?

It sound like a data plan is almost necessary with the blackberry. Its just hard to justify that much a month when 90% of my time im at work with a t3 connection and 2 19" monitors.. no point in using it then, but when im on the road or want to send myself a reminder to do something thats when it would be useful. I just wish the unlimited was a little cheaper a month.

Perhaps the BB's not for you, maybe a TREO or ppc would be better. Although I would recomend the BB.

You dont need a data plan exactly, but you do need a Blackberry Data plan to properly use the bb, without it, it is pretty much a very expensive cellphone. Remember the BB is an e-mail tool first and foremost and a phone/pda secondly. Good luck in your decision making.
