Default Thinking of Buying

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry if these questions are a repeat. I am a sprint customer thinking of buying a BB. It appears from the sprint website that i need to be a business customer to get the BB i want. Is this true? I will not have a compnay with a server, so any guidance on a plan would be great. I will mostly be using the BB for phone calls, checking personal AOL email, and texting (1000 a month)? Should i switch providers to get a better plan? Can i keep my current number when switching to a BB. Sorry again if these are answered somewhere else, but i check the FAQ and cant seem to find them there.

You don't need to be a Business customer to get a BlackBerry.

I don't know if you can have your AOL mail sent to a BB or not. I know you can with Yahoo and Gmail.
