Default Blackberry Curve 3G?

Please Login to Remove!

I've wanted a new phone for a while now, I've got an Ipod Touch, However, I want a phone to call and text people and go on the Internet anywhere I want.

I want to ask a question.

I've got the 15 deal on Virgin Media about the Blackberry curve, It said Unlimited Internet does that mean WIFI? or does the Blackberry have 3G or some kind of 3G to connect to the Satailites?

No, unlimited internet means use over GPRS (the 8520 doesn't have 3G)
However, it will not work on a Blackberry, and requires Blackberry Internet Service.
It will be an extra 5 per month (assuming your in the uk), and you should call virgin to discuss it.
