It's not like other phones.
You need a BlackBerry Data Plan to receive MMS messages on a BlackBerry.

Partially true... you need BB data plan to initially set-up your BB device with MMS Service Book entry. Once a BB is set-up for MMS, you can use MMS without BB dataplan as MMS uses basic GSM service. . . and as a disclaimer MMS is subject to carrier restrictions based on each individuals subscription.
