Default email service option

I was wondering if there's an alternative way of using BB's email option WITHOUT signing up the seemingly expensive $20-40/month plan?
I heard there's a type of email account which is basically using the phone number as an email?

No BlackBerry data plan = No email or web. No way around it.
If your using the phone number then you will be getting text (SMS) messages, not email.

Remember, please try searching first!

Need a screenshot? ... Like JavaLoader?
Try using BBscreen .....Use JL_Cmder!
or BBScreenShooter!
