Thanks for your reply.
Do you think most people do this, those enthusiast?
When you say you only need a BIS phone plan, but that means your Telco still provides the Internet Service rite? and that charge is the bit I'm trying to eliminated. Such as BES phone plan charges are cheaper than BIS.
I am hoping if MDS(Internet) can be done over BES of your home setup using the home ISP, serving your blackberry.
My understanding is that BIS plan phone can be attached to any BES server, though this is more costly as apposed to a BES plan phone attached to a BES server.
Also I understood that a BES plan phone is useless as the Internet does not work unless it is attached to a BES server, which is true. BES planned does not incure any data usage charges. BIS planned phone does incure data usage charges.
Can you please clarify is my understanding is correct?
