Is there really coverage out there most of the time? I'm a Virginia Tech grad and when I was there the old huge analog phones and bag phones were available and you couldn't get a signal out there. I guess things change.
Seriously...If I were you and wouldn't be able to get the full capabilities with that particular model BB, I'd look at another model BB or another type of phone or PDA that would fit my needs better. The data plan can be costly, but if you're not really using it, then it really wouldn't be worth paying the fees each month for something that you're unable to get your money's worth on at this time.
Yet, the ultimate choice is yours to make.
Are you just travelling in the Roanoke Valley, New River Valley, etc.? Will you be going to areas where you would be able to take advantage of the service enough in your travels? Are you currently upgrading or purchasing for the first time a BB or smartphone device? You'll need to take a look at the costs that you'll incur for the data fees and see if it is ultimately worth it. What's your current method of retrieving emails, etc (is it via a smartphone)?
