Default Dumb question (?): Do I NEED a data plan JUST for email?

I have a 7100t on TMo here in the US. I've found that b/c the GPRS speeds are fairly slow I don't do a heck of a lot of web surfing. So I was wondering if I could elimiate the $30/mo unlimited data plan I have an instead get something cheaper just for email/SMS. Any thoughts?


PS - I use the web client, no enterprise connection if it matters

You have two choices (assuming you have a voice plan):
$20 / month for BWC -or-
$30 / month for BES and BWC.

With the voice plan only you can do voice and SMS.

You MUST have a data plan for e-mail.
