Welcome to the forums!

Give Cingular a call and have them add the unlimited BlackBerry Data Plan for $29.99. Without a BlackBerry Data Plan you will not have internet or email access.

Make sure that the seller has released the device and taken his user name, IMEI and PIN off of BIS so you can register and set it up in your name. Otherwise, you will have problems getting it provisioned and established on BIS.

Then add the dataplan as paulbblc suggested. No BB dataplan, no Internet, no email.

The unlimited plan does not include text messaging. And just because it is a Cingular phone doesn't mean you won't have trouble. If the seller has not terminated his service and released the IMEI and PIN, your email will go to their BIS account - assuming the seller was on BIS.

The $44.99 plan is for corporate BES accounts. The $29.99 is unlimited personal assuming you also have a voice plan. The code is BBRYBISUNL.

BBRYBISUNL is the rate code listed for the $29.99. Your friend should know what it is.
