Default gprs on vodafone blackberry 8520

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I own BB 8520. I want to access internet ( very rare) on my BB. I currently activated BB basic plan, which provides me with access to mails, but not internet. Since i am using internet rarely on mobile ( while i am commuting ) i don't need a Blackberry internet plan which costs me another 900 bucks.

I am looking for alternate options like vodafone live but not sure whether that works with blackberry phone. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

My network is vodafone india.
