Nope, you must have the BlackBerry Data Plan. Media Net plans don't work over RIM's network.

the unlimited data plan with cingular/ATT is $30/month on top of a voice plan. if you don't have a data plan...there is no point in a blackberry to be honest. seems kind of dumb to have spent the money for a blackberry? why did you buy the blackberry anyways? for the keypad?

no data plan = no BIS = no push email + no browsing = PAPER WEIGHT


sorry to be blunt
