Exclamation Tmobile data service for $5.99?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi fellas,

i bought an unlocked refurb. 7100T from tigerdirect. Updated its firmware from tmobile website. While checking tmobile website, i realized that, they have a Web&Apps internet service for $5.99. But regular blackberry service is min. $29.99.

I called tmobile, asked about their 5.99 service. They told me it is not for blackberries bcs my phone is too advanced for that service (??!).

Does anyone have any idea what is the difference between these two services, at least they are GPRS i think?

The $5.99 plan is for regular phones and just give them access to simple WAP pages. The Blackberry needs the more expensive plan because it uses the BB network to deliver mail and provide more advanced internet browsing.

Isn't the least expensive T-Mo BlackBerry plan still $19.99/month?

I thought $29.99/month was for Blackberrys used on an Enterprise Server.

BIS with TMobile is $19.99 per month when added to a voice plan. It's a little more expensive for a data only plan.
