he isn't asking about BES, he is asking how to get push email. Push email is available on a BIS using GMAIL, Yahoo, or the BlackBerry email address.
To the original poster: Yes you need a blackberry data plan to get emails. There is no way around this. Email goes through RIM's servers and is pushed to the BlackBerry/ Without a data plan, there is no way to create an account on those servers to get your email. I don't know what the plan you need on cingular is, but I think their cheapest plan is about $30-$35/month.
