Wirelessly posted (overwhelmingly stressed)

Generally speaking internet doesn't work without a BB data plan

Look in the faq I believe there are instructions there that may assist in gettint internet without the data plan but it doesn't always work from my experience

There are few pre-paid cards out there that include BlackBerry data packages. Orange UK is the only one I know of.

Yup. GPRS isn't the same thing as Blackberry data.
