Thanks a lot for the fast response!
I've never owned a phone/PDA before and that is why I'm uncertain about the whole provider deal.
I'll be home from university on April 22, so I think if I set it up now then I won't be able to use it when I go back home? (because the phone # will be long distance)
Also, I may be getting a family plan in May, so if I get Pay as you go for my Bb now, can I just switch to family plan in May?
Sorry if I sound like a total idiot, but I can't find any information about this stuff.
Also, if I just get a pay as you go, can I still use the BB to surf the web but it costs money? Or can I only surf web/get email with a data plan?
On the site it says .5MB data. What exactly does this mean? Is this incoming bandwidth or storage or something?
