Someome told me once that you can use a Nextel BlackBerry for wap only without a BlackBerry plan but as far as I understand it if you want data connectivity for emails, pins and web browsing you need a BlackBerry data plan from your service provider.

It's incredible how many of these threads there are. There needs to be a bold title on the home page "NO DATA PLAN = NO INTERNET/EMAIL"

That's only with Boost though right? In the US on T Mobile or Cingular you need a BlackBerry data plan and in Canada on Rogers Wireless you also need a BlackBerry data plan.

Everywhere over here, uk, needs a bb data plan for any form of data including opera mini. Something odd with boost im thinking.
