Default Do I need "Blackberry plan" for internet?

Please Login to Remove!

Here's my deal. I'm with Nextel I use my i605 for work. I have the unlimited data pack. I use internet during work constanly. I install for Comcast so i use it for a special site they have for basically playing with peoples acct's. Here my question. I got a 7520 for free. Can I use it with my current internet plan without upgrade to the actual blackberry one. I don't need more speed or anything, I'd just like to take advantage of the bigger screen, easier typing and the fact the TeleNav would look much better while I'm driving around. Also the NOL browser isn't in there, how do I get it...

No bb data plan, no internet, no email, nothing but a phone.

yes, and to reiterate, no BB plan, no data. Don't try, don't ask, not possible, never, no how. Search the forums for more info.

Everyone is correct in their response, as far as the browser goes, you won't get that until the BB plan is activated. Once you activate the data side of it, it will send down the service books to the phone.
