Thanks for your help.
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
