Your question is extremely difficult to read using your short text such as "bcuz" and "dnt knw".

You need a BlackBerry data plan. A regular data plan will not work.

Not true. They have service book icons. Those icons allow you to download the application. But the application itself is not installed on the device.

An OS update is different. If the application is already installed on the device prior to the OS upgrade, the application will still be installed. I think you're confusing the two.

Opening a brand new device that's never been used before will not have those applications installed by default. Yes, it will have the icons, but they will only be links to download the actual application.
