Default Question about Blackberry Plans

Please Login to Remove!

I'm currently migrating from an iPhone to a BlackBerry. When I purchased my iPhone, I purchased a data plan with it. I was wondering whether I'd have to get a new "BlackBerry Internet Plan" or something to that effect, or whether I can use my existing data plan. Thanks for any insight into this issue.

Yes, the BlackBerry will NOT work with an iPhone or a generic data plan. You will need THE BlackBerry Data Plan.

In the US, data plans are not part of the contract, at least in the sense that you cannot change them. Just contact AT&T and ask them to replace the iPhone plan with the BlackBerry data plan. More good news: the monthly charge is the same for the BB data plan as the iPhone plan.

Yes if you are with AT&T this is an easy task. Without the BB data plan, you will be limited.
